Not sure what's up with the negative reviews but most seem pretty old. OK..yes the bedsheets were impossible to get to stay on but it is a hostel after all. There was a great little porch for hanging out front, and I thought the staff was very nice. We chatted for quite a while. It is right in between the Old Town Albuquerque and newer downtown area with a bus stop directly in front of the hostel.
The set up of the hostel is a bit strange (random bathrooms and showers in what seem like closets) but it is a very old, authentic place to stay. No activities really but there is plenty of info on stuff to do. Did I mention breakfast 24/7? With eggs! Help yourself, just clean up.
