When my partner and i arrived the hostel didnt even have our reservation. We Charged more than was advertised. The staff then tried to say that the reservation which was made for 2 only had a discount rate for one person so we ended up having to pay to the deposit fee we already had paid through the hostelworld website.


Loved this place! Really nice pool to laze around, good bar


Great pool


Lots of potential, but the staff did a poor job to implement the activities and services they advertise. Everyday had a list of activities to do, but none of them happened as the staff was too busy pumping house music from 8 am-2 am, and smoking. If your a person that just enjoys chilling all day, lying around, and a mellow atmosphere, this is for you when in Mancora,

good vibrations from the bar. fun place to meet people and have a nice cold beer or two.


The only problem with this hostel is the location. It's so far from the town of mancora you basically can't go anywhere else at night. During the day you can walk the 3 or 4 miles on the beach but it's to dangerous at night which means you have to stay at the hostel and if there aren't many people there than it gets boring. Even getting a tut tut is scary as you have to go thru a pretty bad part of town to get out of the hostel. Best bet is loki...and if not somewhere near there


I had a reservation for 2 nights. I ended up staying for 5. The staff at the Point was so wonderful! Everybody was so kind and helpful. The food was great. The atmosphere is so laid back. That's why i couldn't leave. I was traveling by myself through Peru. This place made my entire trip. If i am ever in that corner of the world again, i will definitely stay there. I have nothing but great things to say about the hostel and the staff. Thanks for making my jouney so awesome!! Chris
