Amongst the charming galleries, live music and a delicious foodie scene of San Jose del Cabo’s Historic Art District sits DRIFT, a boutique hotel aimed for young independent travelers. Inspired by “traveling without a destination”, it is a simple accommodation with a social atmosphere.

“It is the prototype for a series of hotels that fill a niche between boutique and youth hostel – and provide young adventurers an alternative to all-inclusive package tourism. DRIFT is designed to promote social interaction with a pared down, do-it-yourself atmosphere. The rooms are basic and open concept, influenced by industrial urban lofts and Baja ranch architecture.” – DRIFT website

All bookings are taken via AirBnB and it keeps its costs down so that guests can spend their money on the more adventurous things in life. Every room leads to an open courtyard and it is designed in a way that always encourage interactions and social gatherings amongst guests.

Concrete walls, grey sheets & upcycled furniture? I’m sold.
(Who am I kidding…I was already sold at ‘concrete walls’.)

Via Trendland, and here’s an interesting interview with Stu Waddell – Founder of DRIFT.
