Nice big space. Rooms were clean, and spacy. The lounge area and the pool was also pretty nice and good to chill. The staff do a good job to try to make you have a good time. A little bit away from the main town, but not a big issue as you can walk down the beach. But was warned to not do so at night.
Amazing! Great atmosphere and the bar staff get everyone together with games all day and night. We planned to stay for 4 nights but stayed for 8 instead. Only issue is location and facilities, if you want to go in to town at night it's a tut tut ride and the pool area could do with a few cushions on the chairs or something

Liked that it was a little out of town... Restaurant did lovely food.. Really nice chilling round the pool... Comfy beds and hot showers ...
We had an amazing time at the point!! While it's out of the way of the main strip, it's only a 3 soles ride and they always have a taxi waiting for people. The pool was kinda dirty but it was still really nice to have, though the beach is only a few minutes away as well. They have decent food and you get an omelet for breakfast. The atmosphere is awesome. So much fun and so many awesome people!! The manager was incredible as well. Highly recommend.
Hostel was a ten min beach walk from town (which we loved, the beach near the hostel is more private). Great overall vibe. Only downside was music is blasted from 10am to 2am. So much Katie Perry...
Had an excellent stay. Brilliant vibes and staff. 100% would come back here. The only hostel in South America that I didnt want to leave.
Excellent food on site, chilled out atmosphere and cool staff. 10/10 would stay again!
Conveniently right beside the beach, but super sketchy road to get there. Mancora in general can be pretty sketchy. Hostel was nice enough, sweet pool, good atmosphere, delicious food, and happy hour three times a day.
It is A very fun hostel to stay in. The food was great value and tasty. Although the guard walked into my room without knocking and saw me naked and I was not too happy about that. My dorm room also slept four people but there was only two lockers in the room which could be a problem as there are no others available.
All in all it was good. Lost if activities, good happy our specials, food was good large portions. Large pool, pool table. Music went way too late, I think it stopped at 5:30am. Wi-Fi was bad.
I stayed at the point mancora for two weeks and absolutely loved it. I worked behind the bar for 10 of those days and it was awesome! The facilities are great, the pool has a slack line over it, theres a volleyball court and the staff are always organising fun activities for the guests. Its a reasonably big hostel but the atmosphere is still super friendly, all the guests interact and the bar is lively nearly every night!
Awesome place to chill, great staff, pool and food. There is no reason to leave The Point Mancora.
Felt instantly at home here, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable, we were given a bed at 5am which was very much appreciated after a night bus! Breakfast includes a bit of egg with the standard bread and the food is reasonably priced for the portion sizes. Walk to the main town which is good for sleep but you can get tuktuks too.
The Point was very great place to kick back and relax and have a good time. The staff is great they change staff all the time, so if you are looking for somewhere to work while traveling The Point is the place. It was about a 1 minute walk to the beach and about a 20 minute walk down the beach to the city. But if you really don't want too you could easily spend a whole day at the hostel. It was very fun and a great place to meet fellow travelers.
This is a good place for a party, but it is a bit far away from the center of town. This shouldn't matter too much though, since there isn't much in town and the hostel is advantageously right next to the beach. Hanging out at night with the other guests is the best part, and the night I stayed lots of people came from other hostels to hang there as well. Gold times. Showers are warm, breakfast is eggs and bread, not bad.
The point was very nice. The pool was amazing and the slack line is so fun. It is far away from the main drag and dangerous to walk at night so you have to take a taxi. When we were there it was low season so only staff were there mostly so the atmosphere wasn't incredibly friendly. The fresh fruit juice and fruit salad was amazing in the morning (S5 each)
HIGHLY RECOMENDED! *GREAT staff (During our stay) *CLEAN pool * ACTIVITIES organized * POOL+PINGPONG table *CLEAN rooms/showers/bathrooms *LOT'S of choices for food @ their restaurant! FANTASTIC atmosfeer, we enjoyed it so much, thnaks! A little far from the city, but cheep by mototaxi or you could walk too! The beach is less then 20 second walk!
A really great hostel and the perfect place to chill in Máncora. A large swimming pool, hammocks, a bar and a restaurant and lots of activities. You can spend the day without even leaving the hostel. Staff is friendly and helpful and he hostel is very clean. The food at the restaurant is awesome and at good prices. Only downside is that you need a tuk tuk to get to the main part of town, but only costs 2-3 soles
Awesome hostel! Manager is a dime, food is excellent, not in the centre but 10 min walk along the beach, although there isn't much in the centre and the beach by the centre aren't that nice (rough waves) beds are comfy wifi works pretty well (was able to watch Netflix at night) the pool is a good size and staff are really cool not a hostel that's too big so good vibes all around! Much better Han Loki where I stayed for 2 nights then left because It was boring and staff were rude. Breakfast eggs!
Really great hostel just a shame about the location, it's a tuk tuk ride away from the town. Major issue here was the fact they have no fans in the rooms which means they are ridiculously hot. You stand no chance of laying in beyond 8. Full moon party was a disappointment, despite all the hype it was let down by an awful dj. Great staff and great atmosphere though if you want to party.
