Loved the place, stayed for 4 night 5 days, very clean, everyone was very friendly and helpful! I stayed in a shared bedroom, everything was super nice and clean. Placed on main the downtown mainstreet, walking distance to any club, La Marina deck, Puerto Paraiso and the beach :D Totally going back there!!

Stayed here for a few nights and it was awesome! Emmanuel, the owner was so lovely, caring and helpful. Free breakfast every morning and we had a private room with two double beds and a TV for around $50 a night, and he always turned the air conditioning on at night. Clean, sociable and a great location close to everything.... More

Great hostel it was very friendly and safe. Met some great people and had a good time. Would defiantly go back. Very close to the beach, marina, great restaurants and supermarket. Manny was really helpful with directions for the bus and recommendations of food/restaurants. The continental breakfast is included. Some rooms have AC and others a fan. Wifi is good... More

This hostel is a great asset to Cabo, especially as there are so many expensive places to stay! They have a balcony on the top floor where you can hang out in the sun or the shade, and a kitchen and lounge area. I had initially booked the girls only dorm, and they gave me a mix dorm with bunks,... More

If you want a simple, affordable, no-frills place that's less than a 10-minute walk from downtown Cabo and the marina, then look no further! I stayed at the Baja Cactus Hotel/Hostel for 3 nights in December 2014. I paid $29/night, and so my review should be taken within context. Emmanuel, the manager, had already provided good service before my arrival.... More

We are so grateful that we found Baja Cactus Hostel, after finding that the 'Lonely Planet guide budget recommendations for San Lucas' were dodgy/dangerous/filthy we arrived with low expectations but thankfully we found in Baja Cactus a Clean, Cute, Inexpensive, Tidy, Homely hostel with comfortable beds and breakfast in the morning. Super helpful and friendly staff, nice atmosphere among the... More

i imagine it's the cheapest room you'll find in Cabo San Lucas, so our expectations weren't high when we checked in but we were presently surprised. Spacious and tastefully furnished room with small balcony with a small ensuite. Tv had a few channels in English, good reception. Free wifi with a decent enough connection for browsing. Small breakfast of toast... More

There are people of all ages staying in the hostel, families, friends and singles. There is a small breakfast offered every morning with coffee which is great. The price is reasonable for travellers & there is air conditioned rooms!!!

If you need a cheap but pleasant place to stay in Cabo San Lucas, go to Baja's Cactus hotel-hostel!! I've seen lots of rooms and studio's in Cabo in my search for a bed that I would appreciate for at least a week and nothing was as good as this hostel. Because....It's the cheapest place you'll find but with cleaner,... More
