What we have here is the convergence of world travelers in one small space, all with stories to tell and advice to give. For instance 13 beds and 13 restless riders, to para-phrase the lyrics of the song 'City of New Orleans': a man from Russia, Poland, Holland, Canada, Argentina, America and Mexico; a woman from England, Germany, Australia, Mexico,...

Stayed for three nights in a private room and would happily have extended. The kitchen area is relaxed and there is a fantastic roof garden with the best views in Cabo. The breakfast was delicious (especially the bean burritos). You won't find a better place in this location!

I found this hostel to perfectly suit my desire to explore Cabo and not spend all my money and time on a resort. The rooftop patio is a great chill spot. The owner of the hostel Manny is so kind and helpful! He had fun hostel events that got people together depending on if the hostel guests were looking to... More

The rooms were a little humid. but just to lay your head, get some breakfast, and a nice shower this place is perfect. I loved that it was one building away from Taco Guss. Taco Guss was amazing. Manny and Berto were great. They have a terrace that I went up to and all hours of the day or night.... More

Central location on main street of old Cabo, a short stumble home from bar hopping. It's not 5-star, but it is friendly, safe, clean and relatively quiet. Beto lays out a modest breakfast buffet, complete with a variety of burritos. The manager, Many, is helpful with directions, phone instructions, printing boarding passes and anything to assist the out-of-town visitor. The... More

I have to start off by saying the location is the best with the beach nearby and the bars even closer. The pricing was pretty great. I stayed in the hotel part so i didn't experience any difficulties. The bed was fine. The atmosphere here was great which really made the whole experience better.

No hostel is perfect, and neither is this one... but they are doing a great job! The bell entry keeps the property safe, beds are reasonable and dorms are kept clean. Hot water actually works, and bathrooms are seldom dirty. Staff goes out of their way to prepare hot breakfast every day. I stayed here for 2 weeks and felt... More
