Had a fantastic 2 week stay at Loki. The hotel is located right by the beach with direct access and close to the surf camps, bars and restaurants.

The rooms are clean and spacious perfect for a group of friends and families. They have a wide variety of food available that can be ordered at the bar or to your room.

David and the team went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay.

Would recommend to anyone travelling to Máncora 10/10 service!

I love the place, was clean and comfortable. The food was good and the prices are fare for the big portions. The room had a beautiful view. The price of the room is also fare you have a mini bar at the room.

I had a terrible experience at this hostel. The attention was lousy. The personal didn't give us soap, towels or things like that in the room (they didn't even clean it). The prices were unjustified and terribly high. Its outlet to the sea was the worst: filthy.

They blast music from 9am right through until 3am you can’t hear yourself think it genuinely killed all of our vibes and we love a party but this is just so brutal. All the staff were exceptionally nice. My bed sheets had hairs
On them and were blood stained so I asked for them to be changed. There are many cockroaches too. Would’ve been 4* if it wasn’t for the shocking loud music

3 incidents in 2 nights while I was there where guys went into dorms and jumped into the beds of women they didn't know aggressively pushing inappropriately(hands down pants before the women woke up) WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR ANY WOMEN TO STAY HERE, ESPECIALLY SOLO. It's a party hostel, fairly well setup to get people as drunk as possible spending as much money as possible. Dangerously so if you're not able to handle South American guy aggression. Check your bills, we were overcharged an extra night, and they didn't credit the hostelworld deposit.

Have you ever wanted to relive your memories of 4 day benders in your frat house with sorority girls parading around in skimpy clothing? Is sleep your second priority to beer pong? Do you enjoy drinking jungle juice like slushies that vary in alcohol percentage throughout the day? Can you refrain from posting pictures so your parents don't see what you are doing? Does 2 large beers for 10 soles float your boat? Can you play beer pong, flip cup and other drinking games for hours on end? Can you stay up until 6am and wake up at 9am to keep the party going?

Then this is the place for you, but, for the love of God, make sure you stay 4 nights or less and have a ticket booked to leave or you will get sucked in.

If you answered no to the above questions, be forewarned, this is not a place for the tranquil. The party starts around 10-11am and ends at 1:30am. The music continues blaring until 4am from the beach clubs. The rooms are pretty hot and people are looking to get together.

If you're in the mood, its awesome. If you're looking for rest and relaxation find somewhere else.

Location and premises- 5 stars* Mancora is beautiful, fun and good value. The hostel itself is an old beach hotel by the looks of it and it's gorgeous. Nice beds, good showers and lots of guests which is great for a party hostel. Also has a great pool.

Value- Great value for a party hostel. I know others where the food and drink is far more expensive. Certainly no complaints here and big thumbs up.

Nightlife- This is where I have an issue. It seems that the bar wasn't hopping nearly as much as it should have been either night we stayed. The games, tables and bar are all really spread out so it takes away from the party atmosphere hugely I think. If everything was more compact, people would mingle a lot more and the atmosphere would be a lot better. The only party hostel I've been to where nobody danced on the bar. It's not encouraged either.
I also heard that the staff aren't allowed drink while they're behind the bar which I find unbelievable. I've worked and stayed in party hostels before and know that a huge part of the party vibe comes from the bar staff. If they're not allowed get into the party to the same level as the guests, it drags everyone down. They seem quite stifled in their efforts to get a party going. I've had that confirmed from the mouths of ex staff themselves and that shows they must be frustrated to a degree. Undoubtedly takes away from the bar atmosphere and I could sense it staying there.

Overall- a few changes could have this place as the number one hostel in SA.
1)Managment needs to give the staff more freedom behind the bar; Have a few drinks and getting people up to dance. It's Loki, there should always be people on the bar.
2) Move some of the tables around and get people closer around the bar and away from their cliques. Maybe advertise the 6/7pm events and happy hours more.

Apart from that it's a good hostel. Great prices, nice rooms and in a great location.
That being said it should be an AMAZING hostel. They have everything for it to be so. I would also like to point out that my above thoughts were all echoed by plenty of other guests at the bar on my second night. I'd love to go back to find the advice was taken onboard and the hostel as number one in SA!

Special shout out to Mike (NY) from the bar. Really cool guy and really stood out among the bar staff despite it being his first night.

ALL BACKPACKERS HEADING TO MANCORA!! This place is epic. A resort amongst all the un organised and dirtys places around. Amazing clean pool and crazy bar when it needs to be. Super cheap too, what the hell!?? Dorms are nice and quiet and and amazing atmosphere within the whole hostel, between staff and guests, cleaners and all. Such a sad feeling having to leave tomorrow but will spread the love here on trip advisor. I HAVE TO add that the loki manager JODY has been one of the best. Super accommodating and went out of her way to make sure our stay special here. Big thank you! Will be reccomending for years. THANK YOU!

Hi April, I am afraid the only kitchen we have in Loki Mancora is for the restaurant, however we do offer a varied menu with good prices available throughout the day. Cheers, Noel Marketing Manager
