“Blissful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2011

We found Kon Tiki bungalows to be just perfect and were very disappointed when we couldn't extend our stay there due to catching a flight. The bungalows were excellent; they felt new, and were comfortable, clean, nicely furnished and decorated with crisp sheets and mosquito nets. There were deckchairs and hammocks outside our door with an unbeatable view of the ocean down below. There was wi-fi in the room and a nice common area with a TV and DVDs.

It was lovely to eat breakfast while looking out over the town to the sea. There is a standard breakfast with additional items at a small charge. We were picked up at the bus station by one of the owners in his VW Beetle and driven up the hill to the bungalows. Although the location is a short walk up a hill, it was preferable to us because it's much quieter than the town below and is a welcome reprieve from the noise of the Mancora bars. The owners were very friendly, laid-back but always professional. I can't recommend enough.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2010

I stayed at Kon Tiki for 2 weeks and had the private shared bath room. I was in Mancora for Spanish lessons, and wanted somewhere out of the noisy town, where I could relax and feel safe, as I was by myself at the time. The room was clean and spacious, with a huge comfortable bed, which is key! Great place, lovely staff, with breakfast included. Excellent views of the town, and the best sunsets. The walk up the hill to the hostel is a killer at first, but you soon get used to it, and the views are totally worth it.
I recommend this hostel to couples and or singles alike.

Planned to stay only a few days and ended up staying for two weeks!!
What I like is that its away from all the noise from the main road which means you can go to the party whenever you want apposed to having it on your door every night.

I am currently in Ecuador right now and thinking about going back there for another couple of weeks!!

Highly recommend it
