    One of the best surfing hostels I have stayed at. Joe is a great instructor, just trust his method if you are trying to learn how to surf. His mother takes care of you like family. The place is a humble hostel but has everything you need.

    One of the best weeks of my life! Surfed, laughed, relaxed, and explored for my entire 7 day stay at The Riptide. Can't thank Joe and his mother enough for their generous hospitality. Without a doubt, I will be coming back to the Riptide Hostel in San Jose del Cabo!

    If you can get madre Matilda to cook for you, you’ll be lucky indeed. Big comfy beds, nice view and sunsets. Local taco stand just downstairs. A/C at night. Joe is a amiable host, he even brought me back food from the grocery store. Pleasant place to Kick back. Located in the upscale hotel zone of San Jose.

    Great person. Super laid back style. If you're in Cabo to learn to surf and take it easy, this is the place to pursue the perfect waves.

    This place has a lot of potential! It’s a unique home style hostel in a good location but it really lacks atmosphere. Other gripes was the water would stop halfway through showering & the pillows were lumpy. Joe was a nice host however and was accommodating.
