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

Me and my 19-years son stayed for 3 nights in the cabin at The Abominable Snowmansion. I found it on internet looking for hostels in the Taos area. So first stay, middle of the summer... definitely not a pick of the season. Please notice that during the summer this place may work completely different way than during the winter. Generally...

Dear Guest, We are glad you were happy with your stay. Your expectation that our prices would be less than a KOA that does not provide linens and is located in the parking lot in a rest area by the side of a freeway is confusing. Our price is merely a couple of dollars different but our location in a... More

Stayed there once, several years ago, summer [2013 date below was closest the system allowed me to choose]. Had thot it had charm; name cute. This place has great potential...but... Glad only one night. Glad few others there. Glad not ski-season! This is old-school hostel--really laid-back--I liked that. Those running desk were either absent, or occupied; not much for talking...

I stayed here while skiing Taos. Very nice people with a very relaxed vibe in keeping with the entire Taos area. Friendly from the second you step in the door. A little disorganized, but in a charming way. Perfect for outdoorsy types, it is about 5 or 10 miles outside of the Taos area, on the way up into the... More
