You don’t have to be rollin’ in the big bucks to have a great time in Cabo. Although, it’s easy to see why it can seem that way with celebrity sightings being reported left and right.

Solo travelers, digital nomads, and even families on a budget can find their niche here as well.

Cabo may be synonymous with fancy schmancy all-inclusive resorts, but that isn’t the only way to experience this beautiful region of Mexico.

With recent reports of Cabo hotels averaging a whopping $600 per night, some may look for alternative options, and rightfully so.

The first might be to check out Airbnb, but why not look into hostels? Primarily catering to solo travelers and backpackers, hostels are known for being a great option to save money on accommodations.

Hostels can even be nicer than hotels in some instances. The reputation of tight spaces with no frills is long gone.

If you are a solo traveler, staying at a hostel is a great way to put yourself out there and meet fellow travelers, whether sharing amenities or booking a tour together.

Fortunately for Cabo tourists, there are some awesome choices here. In fact, highly-respected HostelWorld just ranked these 3 hostels as the best in Los Cabos:

3) Cabo Inn

For those who have not booked a hostel via HostelWorld before, there is a score given from prior guests just as many other websites for hotels, like TripAdvisor, for example.

The Cabo Inn has an impressive score of 8.9 out of 10. This vibrant hostel is conveniently located in the center of Cabo San Lucas, making it an excellent base.

Given its prime location, guests have easy access to shopping, dining and top-notch attractions, such as the famous Arch.

When lounging around at this property, guests can take advantage of free w-fi or hop in the outdoor pool or relax on the sundeck.

Housekeeping is provided on a daily basis in all rooms ranging from cozy twin beds to an open-air Palapa.

2) Mayan Monkey Los Cabos

The Mayan Monkey is in the upper tier of Cabo hostels, and guests will immediately notice this when they see the price.

While it is more than one might think a hostel typically costs, it is still a lot cheaper than some of Cabo’s hotels, especially beachfront resorts.

HostelWorld guests scored the Mayan Monkey with a 9.3 out of 10. Travelers love staying here right in the middle of downtown Cabo San Lucas.

This hostel proudly welcomes anyone from barefoot beachgoers to digital nomads. Located just minutes from the nearest beach, the Mayan Monkey is more lively and caters more toward socialites.

Sofia takes the trophy for being the top hostel in all of Los Cabos. Receiving a score of 9.7 out of 10 is hard to beat, especially with almost 100 total reviews.
