26 February 2014

Liked: Nice swimming pool and the property is right on the beach (in a not so busy area). Breakfast provided.

Disliked: As the property is out of town you have to be careful walking along the beach, one of the girls we met was mugged in daylight. The music in the bar is loud and goes on til late. One night there was a party next door and the music was blasting until 7am! We tried to order food from the hostel kitchen one night but we were told if we wanted food we had to have the bbq (which was more expensive), even though people around us were eating food from the menu. Nearly missed our bus on checking out as the breakfast was served late and then the staff tried to overcharge us for our stay. Took a long time to convince them that we shouldn't be paying as much as they stated - they tried to fob us off saying it was just different conversion rates.

Liked: Next to the beach. swimming pool, strong hot showers. You can purchase food at their restaurant. Activities available everyday...

Disliked: In the dorm, no mosquito net to protect me from the invasion. If you are trying to sleep early, no chance. Music is loud till early hours in the morning. Those mototaxi will try to over charge you once you get off the coach. I paid 3sol.

Liked: Kind of isolated resort, this can be either a good or a bad thing. Hammocks, pool, sun and setting is great.

Disliked: Noisy. Not for people looking to rest because the resort is rather small and the boom music might keep sensitive ears up for a while at night.

Liked: Great location right on the beach, but away from the busy part near town. Nice bar and swimming pool so great set up for meeting people if the hostel is busy. Staff are really friendly and helpful and speak great English.

Disliked: Not a problem for me but if you are looking for a quiet night, this place isnt for you - music plays in bar area until late.

Liked: The Point Hostel in Mancora is everything you could hope for in a hostel. Although I didn't arrive until 11pm, Diego the manager was there to greet me and made me feel most welcome. The atmosphere is fantastic, day or night, and wether you are looking to chill out with a book or fire it up, and have a party, this hostel is the place to do it. It's location right on the ocean is hard to beat as well. I sincerely recommend this hostel if you are going to stay in Mancora!

Liked: The hostel has a really nice pool and area to sunbathe. A member of staff (Juan) was really helpful when we were mugged walking back to the hostel; translating at the Police Station for us. The food was good but overpriced.

Disliked: The manager was really unhelpful and blamed us for getting mugged in broad daylight. Bar and restaurant are overpriced, and much cheaper in town. The hostel is a bit out of the way, so taxis are required to get into town (unless you want get mugged as we did). Also played the same 20 songs for 4 days straight, so they really need to sort out some decent music. It got very annoying and all of the guests were talking about it.

Liked: Pretty much everything. This was a favourite hostel we´ve stayed in in South Amercia. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was right on a private beach. The restaurant sells great food and a good price. The pool area is lovely. Good drinks from the bar. Security was excellent - there were 2-3 guides 24hrs a day. Whilst it´s out of town which could be seen as a negative we really liked this because it was so relaxing and only a $3 cab ribe or 15 minute walk...it gave you something to do during the day.

Disliked: We stayed in a bungalow which was lovely but had no hot water (you can use the shared bathrooms for hot water) and limited furniture. No self-catering kitchen but the restaurant pretty much makes up for it!

Liked: The location is great, and the staff very accommodating except for the lady serving breakfast who was adamant that only one coffee a head. Given it was only a spoonful of instant coffee, this was ridiculous. But everyone else was lovely!

Disliked: Shower in bungalow very poor, but you can use main showers which serve the dorms and they are fine.

Liked: Love this place! The staff are so amazing and fun. A nice lowkey atmosphere, not pretentious at all. All the partying you could want but big enough to have quiet areas too. Nice pool. Riiiight on the beach, further from town so you have the beach all to yourself. Great.

Disliked: Food a bit pricey in the hostel. nothing seriously disliked.
