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.
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)
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.
The rooms were unbearably hot and the wifi was pretty weak, but those are genuinely the only complaints I had. Really enjoyed my stay, great vibe, good food, fun people, would recommend.
No kitchen, nice location at the quiet end of the beach. Upstairs toilets need cleaning or new toilet seats. The bed was comfortable. A lot of drugs.
The Point is the best hostel I've been in during my trip. I had a really good time there, everyday there are activities organized by an amazing staff.. The hostel is very clean and right next to the beach, very accessible to te city by tuc tuc (always at the door) or walking along the beach. I definitely reccomend to stay there if you are heading Mancora.

Very chilled out atmosphere. The hostel is right by the beach. People were gathering all day long by the pool (that was surprisingly very clean), so it´s very easy to meet people. Lots of games, beds are fine. They arrange tuktuks rides to go to town for 3 soles. The restaurant serves very decent food, and the bar has three happy hours a day. There were a lot of cats which we loved, but beware if you are allergic! Special activities every night at the bar. Good price for Mancora.
Really enjoyed it here, lovely big pool and outside area to meet people. It's more chilled than Loki etc but still really social and fun. Dorms are basic and slightly overpriced (no fans) and its a shame there isn't a kitchen as its a little far out from restaurants (although there is one on site selling basic meals) Could have easily stayed for longer but had to move as they have no doubles.
fun place to stay. party hostel. only complaint is that there were no fans in the rooms and they got extremely hot stuffy around 8 every morning, so sleeping in was not really an option. otherwise great spot!
A good party hostel. Don't come here for peace and quiet. No locks on dorm rooms and members of the public have to walk past the rooms to get to the toilet from the bar. Rooms were fumigated whilst I was there, the manager couldn't tell us what chemical was being used and only gave 10 mins warning - Not good enough. Taxis in to town are overpriced compared to the non affiliated taxis. Bathrooms often quite dirty. Overall a good party hostel, nice restaurant, good fun bar, and a fun crowd.
A very fun and high energy place to stay. Lots of activities and people to meet. The beach is really nice and not crowded, you just have to take care to stay in the safe areas.
I had a great time, it is just a little far from the city but everything was good.
