The first thing is.... that I ended up here... accidentally with my dog. I took off....you know the kind of travel only a train wreck of a relationship or taking Japanese in College with too many other classes might inspire!? Well, in my case it was both. I have been coming to the SnowMansion or SNOW HOLE as I affectionally... More

I have been coming to the Snow Mansion since early 2001. Every visit it gets better and better. The inside is an art gallery. Its warm and friendly. Lots of interesting international people. My favorite was the amazing meals that I was lucky to be there for. Most of ingredients was grown right there in their organic garden. Highly recommend... More

I loved this place! I have stayed at a lot of hostels, and this was definitely one of my favorites. The atmosphere is very laid back welcoming. The staff are extremely friendly. The room was small, but no complaints for the price. I slept very well. The location is pretty perfect, half way between town and the ski resort. Will... More

This is one of my favorite places for an affordable ski vacation. The Snowmansion itself is a good 20 minutes closer to the slopes than downtown Taos, a bonus for those like me who want to get in early runs but can't afford to stay up at the base of the mountain. As a female who travels alone often, I... More

not much to say except that people/ staff were friendly, cleanliness was to be expected of a hostel and there were definitely enough food options! do not think you are going to be near Taos though. You are decidedly outside of taos in a small little village.

Lots of options, great location, pleasant staff. It's set in a pleasant little village with shops for food and drink nearby. There's a certain amount of road noise in the morning when people are going to work, but it's mostly quiet.

I have recently driven across country and put out to the Universe that I would like a place to stay that I could afford, was comfy cozy and with loving kind people. How amazed and pleased I am to be in such an environment here at the SnowMansion just outside of Taos, NM. I even extended my stay for another... More

Great place. People are very warm generally. If you are young and looking for a place to work for your room, this is the place. Although at any place like this there is a pecking order if you stay more than a few days, so some of the new workers/woofers like to be bossy but that is just part of... More

This is the best hostel that I've ever stayed at! Superb environment! I truly wish I had found this place earlier in my life. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone without any reluctance whatsoever.

The Aboominable Snow Mansion was an excellent place to stay. In a stunning setting surrounded by magical mountains. Good facilities and clean. The staff were helpful and very friendly. Great stable wifi too. I enjoyed sitting around a fire and meeting people from all over the world
