Couldn't agree more with review from 4th November. Not a great place, would not stay again or recommend.
We arrived on early bus from Mancora, 7.30 in morning. Understandably room was not ready although they did get room for us by 10am while we grabbed breakfast elsewhere. This is a positive. Also very close to beach and quiet at night, that's all my positives used up.
The place was very unwelcoming, no intro to Mancora or shown around place. Not told about breakfasts/activities at hostel. Whenever we went to reception nobody was there, also very difficult to work out who actually worked there.
Wifi was sporadic and not great.
Check out time very early, although we benefited from this!
They agree to keep luggage but by the side of reception table. No locked doors, tickets for bags etc. Would be very easy to set up a locker/luggage room.
Place was clean, tidy. Showers as said below was a pipe in the wall, not good power and cold water. Either dribble warm or ok power with cold water.
Toilets pretty dodgy, poor flush. Difficult to flush anything down. Walked in after someone else who had been unable to flush properly. Pretty off putting.
Finally when leaving, handed in money. Not asked how our stay was.
Clearly not bothered.
