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

Super helpful and friendly staff, nice atmosphere among the... More

The management was outstanding helping us with any and all questions a query's we had from where to eat and drink to... 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!!!

This is a great hotel and hostel. Its clean and cheap so I ended up staying here for 7 nights and really enjoyed all the great people from around the world. We all became friends the first night so it was great to have a group of cool international people to go out at night with or spend the day... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my week at Baja's Cactus Hotel. Got the room last minute and for only $45 and had a huge room all to myself. Rooms have tile floors, balconies and lots of hot water in the shower. The roof top terrace is a great place to chill and get away from the madness of downtown. It is location perfect... More

Went to Cabo for New Years with no reservations! Managed to find this place available for 2 nights at a great price, around $50 US. We first thought it looked kind of sketchy as another reviewer did, but once we got to the room and spend some time there we were really glad with our choice. The room was HUGE... More
