I stayed in the hostel with my three kids (ages 6,5, and 4) and it worked out perfectly. We had a private room and had to walk down an outside corridor to get to the bathroom but the kids were fine with it. The staff were amazing and so kind to my kids. I will definitely be staying here the... More

This hostel is unlike most in that it operates as a non-profit organization to encourage travel for the sake of education and cultural exchange. If you are looking for clean and predictable surroundings, this might not be for you. But, if you are looking for a cheap and eco-friendly option in Santa Fe, and you like the idea of meeting...

I can't for the life of me put the depressing, dirty place I stayed together with some of the glowing reviews it has received here. The upkeep is dreadful; the staff counts on the guests to clean their spaces and apparently doesn't check to see if this is happening. My friend and I shared a private room with bunk beds... More

it is not killed by modernization-some of the charm of the 60ies is alive. Always plenty of organic food in the kitchen. A bus ride from the center away. Amazing people- they help in the community. Highlights of my many stays: at Thanksgiving a professional cook from California was visiting and prepared dinner for all the guests- who wanted did... More

One of the best hostel where I've been. It is really cheap to rent a room and they get a lot of unsold food from the wholefood stores. You got a little chore to do everyday if you choose to get your cleaning deposit back. The staff there was really nice, and my friends enjoyed the hostel aswell.

We stayed here one night on our way west. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and upfront about expectations. The hostel operates on a chore system, where each guest must complete a chore in the morning. While this enables the hostel to operate without cleaning staff, one should have lower expectations for cleanliness when staying here, as your room... More

I've stayed at a lot of hostels around the world and can say for sure this is a really cool one. The location is convenient and less than two miles from Cowgirl BBQ, a great music venue, and quite close to Counter Culture, a great restaurant and café with amazing breakfast burritos. The owner is super nice and committed to... More

I love the fact that you can travel and still cook your own eggs that you bought from the farmers market along with the buckwheat bread! (Dale told us about the farmers market and that in itself was worth the trip to Santa Fe.) You have to wash your own dishes and clean your own room but thats the way... More
