Perfect location for the price.

This was a wonderful place to stay in Cabo. There was a solid breakfast every morning and the staff and Manny were always so helpful. It takes 5 mins to walk to the night clubs and about 15 mins to get to Medano Beach. Tons of great places to eat around the hostel too. Great place, it's not fancy and you get the essentials of a bed and bathroom. If you can live with that definitely stay here.

Great Hostel!

Pros: Location, cleanliness, friendly hotel staff
Cons: Noise level was a bit bothersome. Bring some earplugs and you will be fine.
Location: Centrally located near the main strip in Cabo and close to beach and marina.
This was a great hostel! This was my first time to Cabo, so I was a bit nervous. I was able to speak with Manny the hostel manager a two days before my arrival and he was very helpful. He gave me exact directions and recommended that I use the bus from the airport to Downtown Cabo. That bus trip only cost $5 USD versus a $45 USD shuttle or even more expensive taxi. Manny greeted my upon my arrival and provided me with detailed information on the area (bars, restaurants, etc.). He was very professional, out-going, and genuinely a nice person. He also spoke very good English. The hostel was fairly new and in great condition. The rooms were very spacious and the bed and bathrooms were extremely clean. The cleaning staff was busy cleaning the hostel every morning, even though I was the only guest for 2 of my 4 night stay. The hostel is two blocks from the main strip in Cabo and about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. The hostel is located on a busy street and near a few night clubs, so the noise can be a bit bothersome. But, just take some earplugs and you will be just fine. My overall experience was extremely positive and I look forward to visiting again in the future. This hostel is clean, fairly quiet, centrally located, and very reasonably priced! Thanks Manny!
