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

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
