I have some mixed emotions about my stay here....Overall we had an excellent stay here The local guys who run the place are great and really friendly the backpackers working there (of which there are many) are not so much. The hostel itself is set up perfectly for people looking for a bit of chill with stuff to do -...

Our stay at Kokopelli was fabulous. Inside the hostel it feels like you are in a different world. Everything is decorated tastefully, there is a possibility to relax on the pool or play ping pong. On the bar you can get all kinds of drinks. The best thing is the food though. The food is exceptionally good, I have never...

A great backpacker. Good location, comfortable facilities. The best place to hang is by the pool, you meet great people, very cool. But I did not like the bar was kind of expensive as going to other backpackers was much cheaper. Im going back to Peru, so i hope to have the chance to go to mancora again!

My wife and I stayed at Kokopelli for a couple nights in October. It's a great place for backpackers, with a good party atmosphere. It's small enough that it doesn't get too crazy, but it can be pretty loud, especially if you have a room anywhere near the pool/bar area, so if you're a light sleeper or looking for peace...

This is one of the best hostel's i've ever stayed at. The food they cook up every evening was great, the staff were extremely friendly. The hostel itself is very clean, has quick internet, and a swimming pool Its less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. Lots of other travelers hanging around here as well, very easy meet...

We stayed at Kokopelli for 3 days and could have spent longer there. Just 1 minute from the beach near the edge of town it's just out of the way enough to be quiet but close enough to be in the mix. The atmosphere is great and the facilities unquestionably good. It is a relaxed place to chill by the...

Staff was helpful though not enthused to be of assistance. If you are looking to stay up and party all night then this is the place for you. Youth travelers mostly inconsiderate of roommates. We moved out to quieter location and better service for same price. We were happy when the time came to leave.

Great place to meet people and great location - not on beach front but the beach is a 2 minute walk away. Really good pool area with sunbeds, hammocks and a bar. Only fallbacks were that it got a bit cold at night and they didn't provide blankets, the towels to borrow are tiny and the hot water ran out...

We stayed at kokopellis for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We often just stayed in the hostel area during the day and chilled around the pool while enjoying the good food. You can still party if you want to around the well stocked bar before heading out to the many local bars nearby. I'd highly recommend kokopellis...
