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.

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.

A little away from the action and I guess security requires you to take a cab at night since it isn't that safe at night. But overall worth what you will pay. Near the beach; great food; reasonably priced drinks; and great staff.

I really liked to stay a little outside of the crazyness of the town. It's a peaceful place with a great atmosphere but you can party anyway if you want to. I'll go back!

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.

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!
