It's a nice place if you want to party but if not there's no place to just relax and the music from the bar played until 1am. It's also a bit too far away, its safe to walk in to town during the day but when it's dark you shouldn't walk along the beach.


it was really amazing, great people meet there, the music atmosphere is breathtaking!!!

Cool spot, just a little far up the beach


Loved this hostal, the location, the staff, the atmosphere... Would definitely recommend staying here over the overcrowded hostels in the center :)


This hostel is fantastic! I made a reservation for 2 nights but stayed several more. It has a great vibe around the swimming pool and bar and basically everything a traveler needs is here. They have a restaurant with a good selection of meals in case you get too lazy to move from your hammock. In my opinion, the location is excellent as it's away from the horrible music they blast all night in the town center. Seriously, Stay Here! I left only to meet friends in Lima for New Year.


Great facilities and very clean hostel. Quiet when we was there but has potential to have great atmosphere! Downside is a short walk from main part of town and should use tuk tuk, not safe to walk it! Avoid the food on site was pretty terrible!


I planned on staying in Mancora 2 nights,but after checking into the point it felt like home and I stayed for 2 weeks! Great staff and outside pool bar! One of my highlights of South America! Check it out.


Great hostel with a nice bar and swimming pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and always made sure there was activities going on day and night. It's also right on the beach! A must stay!


Good hostel. Pool, volley ball. Bar. But so far out of town and Mancora is not a safe place especially near the point when there is only one way in and one way out. So if u want to party in town or do anything in town heading back to the point is not safe and almost life threatening.


What ever you do DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOSTEL!! Stay at Loki or somewhere else central instead, it is much safer and in the instance of Loki, the staff were more helpful and the facilities were better (even though we didn't stay there they still helped us out). When we were mugged just up the road from The Point, we ran back and told them what happened and the staff coundn't have been more indifferent towards the situation. They wouldn't even call the police for us!! STAY AWAY!!

We're very sorry you had such a bad experience while staying at our hostel. Our hostel is very safe, but the roads and beaches in Mancora are not safe after dark. We advise all of our guests to take a mototaxi to town (very cheap, only 3 soles) after sundown. There are an even higher number of police reports of muggings outside of Loki, as many undesirables hang out in front of the downtown hostels to harass guests. We always inform the police of any incidents, but they often do little to help.


We stayed for 5 nights in this time 2 nights people were robbed at knife point within 2 blocks of the hostel!! It is not safe day or night. The staff are too relaxed letting locals in at night, they give you no indication it isnt safe. The food and pool is nice but not worth the risk. Stay at the Loki it has nice facilities, on the beach in the middle of town. Or just skipp Mancora and head north!!!
