    Surf Hostel Cabo - The Riptide! I had a Great time at this Hostel in San Jose del Cabo. The location is perfect, near to the beach & the local surfing spots. The host, "Loco Joe" is a cool guy who has great knowledge of the Los Cabos area. He will help you, to make your trip enjoyable. I highly recommend staying here if you visit San Jose del Cabo. Go surf with Joe !

    Loved this place. Will be back. The owner takes you surfing whenever the surf is good. End up just sitting on the beach relaxing and surfing until the sunset. Saw baby turtles being released at the beach 100 meters away. Staff is so nice. Right next to a great local place with cheap delicious food smoothies and juices. If you get there and the door is locked walk around the building. It’s on the top floor. Yell ayy-UU when you arrive

    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 my favourite hostels I’ve stayed at. Joe and his mom Mati are amazing hosts and make you feel like you’re family. Feels like you’re at home as soon as you arrive. About a 20 min walk to the centre and the beach is just across the street. Great cheap little local food shack right downstairs. Joe is an awesome surf instructor and will bring you out everyday the surf is good if that’s what you’re looking for! I can’t wait to come back ASAP to see and support these wonderful souls again

    Great stay with Joe and Mati, who were incredibly kind and welcoming hosts. As the hostel is difficult to find, Joe was waiting for me upon arrival, and Mati was waiting to let me back in after my day of adventuring around town. The hostel is small but kept very clean - Mati cleaned the bathroom between every guest's use. Great balcony and front porch areas, and you can't beat the location *directly* across the street from the public beach. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    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.

    The owners are super nice and chill, and the Hostal is very close to the beach. There is a cheap place to eat just down from the Hostal.

    The mother and son that run the place are super nice and hospitable. Location is good. The only thing that felt lacking for me was a common space to hang out in. It's just a small apartment turned into a hostel so if you want to relax there, the options are your bed or a small patio. I geuss it was bigger at one point taking more of the apartments on the same floor, but for now it's just the one

    Very Good

    Not up to top international standards, but enjoyed my stay thanks to the very welcoming lady whose name I missed. Impossible to find; the entrance is behind the building. No lockers. Half-a-room serves as a kitchen and all other common-area functions. Second floor (US: 3rd), with high ceilings. Slippery steps. Surf-school linked. Set among the massive resort hotels, 20 mins walk from the town centre. Basic but recommended.
