Drift is centrally located in the arts district, walking distance from great restaurants and galleries. The space is charming, with an incredible attention to style and design. The Drift team were friendly and gave great suggestions for local spots to check out. The bed was super comfy, everything was clean, and the courtyard mezcal bar was an added bonus.

This place is awesome! We had such a great time hanging out at the bar with the other guests and having drinks by the bonfire! Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The shower was amazing! Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location. Would have stayed there forever!

An oasis in the historic center of San Jose del Cabo. Think luxury hostel, but with private accommodations and a high end vibe. Friendly, attentive staff. Minimalist design. Thoughtful details that transformed our stay into an experience we won’t forget. If your looking for an all-inclusive mega resort experience, look elsewhere. If, however, you consider yourself to be more of an independent traveler that appreciates all of the authentic experiences that can only come from talking to locals and fellow like-minded wanderers, you will love Drift!

I don’t even know where to begin! This place is amazing and was truly better than I even imagined after wanting to stay here for quite some time. The design, the details, the friendless and ease of the staff, the amenities, and location all made for a very memorable stay. Two nights turned into several more and we are already planning our next trip. The sense of traveller community really topped it off as well, as we ventured out almost each day with friends we made at Drift. I hope this place never changes!!

Once we arrived at Drift, we knew we made the right decision. It was such an intimate setting that allowed us to interact organically with the other guests. The Mezcal tasting bar open every night created the perfect setting for getting to know the staff, owner, and others staying at the property. The entire space is beautiful and provided just what we needed. If we come back to the San Jose del Cabo area, we will definitely stay here! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

The DRIFT philosophy is to provide hotel quality accommodation but without any of the expensive frills. Beautifully designed with open communal spaces, its the perfect place for independent travellers who’d rather grab their own beer and sit around a communal table than sip cocktails at a fancy hotel bar. I cannot speak highly enough of the crew and the vibe they’ve created.

Absolutely loved my short stay at Drift and the concept of the place! The staff is really friendly and helpful and provides a lot of information about the town in a handy booklet. The whole building is very beautiful and comfortable, and the minimalist chic vibe creates a great ambiance. The neighbourhood is a great one for exploring restaurants and galleries and was really calm, safe and relatively easy to get to coming into town with a rental car. Overall, it really provided an exceptionally comfortable stay, was super clean…and is a great addition (and alternative) to the regular Cabo accommodation scene!! I definitely recommend this place to anyone specifically wanting to stay in a young, welcoming, modern, chic boutique like place, rather than a large-scale resort, while experiencing Mexico! I only wish I could have stayed longer, as during my short stay I was unable to fully appreciate the space!!

Angel and Cristian were lovely, accommodating hosts and the Drift provides the perfect, hip, central and chill home base to explore the best of Baja. We’ll be back!

We loved everything about our stay at Drift. It was a very comfortable room, the property is exactly as the photos indicate – stylish, simple and in harmony with the surrounding environment. There are 8 unique, private rooms. The mezcal bar is stocked with some small batch offerings and a great way to meet other guests. My husband and I spent 8 nights here, and it was the most relaxing holiday we’ve ever had. Thank you to the brilliant team of 5 that make this place so welcoming. We hope to be back someday!

The team at Drift is super chill and hosts a great party on Thursday night. Staying at Drift adds a little bit of style and authenticity (smack in the middle of town) to your trip to Los Cabos.

Just like the photos – a lovely modernist boutique hotel in the historic centre of San Jose del Cabo. Friendly staff and a great mescal bar on site.

This experience was everything I could have dreamed for and more. The staff was wonderful and went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. The space is just as magical as it appears in photos. Without doubt I will be back.

Drift is an awesome place to relax, think, read, meet fellow travelers and connect with the locals and artists. It is one of my favorite places to stay when I travel. I strongly recommend Drift to all traveling to San Jose. Be sure to try all the Mescals at the bar. -Hector Bordas
We absolutely loved staying at drift. The place had such a relaxing feel and we loved jumping in the pool after a day of exploring the area. Would 100% stay again and recommend it to friends!

It was a great experience to stay at Drift. The location was great for getting to know San Jose del Cabo. We could’ve stayed on the water but opted for this beautiful oasis to mingle and meet people. All the staff and owner were very accommodating. Thanks for a great time in Cabo… look forward to coming back to Drift.

Drift is such a magical place! Design-focused, no frills, just what you need to enjoy the beauty of San Jose del Cabo. Located in a great, safe, walkable neighborhood with access to adorable shops, delicious restaurants and fantastic galleries. The other guests at Drift are cool, respectful and interesting. The owner of Drift is helpful and kind. I would highly recommend this place and wish more hotels would follow this “upscale private hostel” type of model. DON’T MISS THIS PLACE.

Drift hotel was a lot of fun. The location and proximity to great restaurants is superb. Inside of the Drift property is exactly as the photos show and much more. It offers a very relaxing and calm atmosphere. We made friends with the other guests and the staff where very friendly and helpful as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing spot with great food and entertainment within walking distance. -Brandon Raissian

The team here are great. All very friendly and happy to help with any questions. Very laid back place with great design throughout. Loved the shared areas. Great place away from all the resorts, in the beautiful old town with plenty of restaurants etc. Best to have a car but there are loads of taxis if you haven’t got one.
