This hostel has a lot of potential and friendly staff. Great location, free water and coffee. The kitchen is really just a microwave so be aware if you want to cook. Good for the price, we would stay again.

Checked in without a booking during my Road Trip from Tijuana to Cabo. Nice small Hostel, close to the Beach and Restaurant Strip. Very clean, and friendly helpful Staff. Had a 2 bedroom dorm on my own, comfy beds and even with beach view. Highly recommended. If I pass through La Paz again I will be definitely staying here :)

I stayed at Baja Backpackers for 7 nights. I arrived late at night and very tired, so they told me to go straight to sleep and that we would work out the business the next day. Isn't that nice? Since I wasn't entirely sure about my travel plans, they allowed me to pay night-by-night. Furthermore, after 5 nights you get... More

Our stay here was comfortable and welcoming. Ava was a great host. Air con rooms were a bonus. No laundry service though which would have been great. Also wifi does not work in upstairs back rooms. Amazing location close to nice restaurants and bars

This is a great hostel. The location is very convenient. I stayed in a shared room and found it clean. Bathrooms and shared kitchen were also clean. It was very hot when I was there, so we turned on the AC in the evenings before we went to bed and slept comfortably. Staff were very friendly and helpful!

My overall experience was good. The building was clean overall and the staff where respectful and helpful. You have all the facilities required including free parking at the back which is really useful in Baja since a car is almost necessary to get around in Baja Sur. It is pricey for a hostel Baja Sur is expensive to the rest... More
