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 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!!!
Really great stay here, definitely recommend to any type of traveller. A chill here is just what we needed after a long stint on buses. Everyone really friendly. Even though it wasn't peak season during our stay, staff got everyone involved in socialising. Food is excellent. Everywhere is constantly being cleaned too. Location isn't that close to town, but tuk tuks are always outside the hostel so you can get there for 3 soles in a couple of minutes or walk along the beach in the day!

The best place to stay in Mancora. The staff is amazing... Becca, Tereza, Isaac, Manu, Florian, Fer ... they go out of their way to be your friend. Great environment to meet other travelers. I wish I could've stayed longer.
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.
