Friendly, accommodating staff, comfortable rooms. Staff was kind enough to allow us to extend our leave time but recommend extending time to vacate room to 11:30 instead of 10:30. Bathrooms could stand a little polishing with bleach. Recommend staying in rooms away from noisy street.

Not the worst hostel but could definitely be better. It's in a very old house so everything's a bit run down. Beds in dorms are super uncomfortable, no air conditioning and bugs in the kitchen. However there is a decent breakfast included, it's a good location and the guys on the staff are great! Plus it's the only hostel in... More

Stayed for one night in a pleasantly tiny single room with common bathrooms. Had a good night's sleep after a long drive. Unbeatable price. Very laid-back old hostel, evidently not much upkeep, which I consider positive because too much fussing about renovations and house rules would likely destroy the relaxed atmosphere. Lots of books everywhere, old furniture and miscellaneous decorative... More

This place has serious potential, but feels a bit tired and lazy. The property has everything you'd want in a hostel. It is spacious and in a location that is desirable for getting around the town. The upkeep and energy is poor to mediocre... with more TLC this place could be special. The bunkroom and bathroom are pretty sad and... More

Words cannot express my total disappointment with this place... But I will try my best! If I could give it a zero-rating, I would. Seriously. I have traveled and stayed at several hostels, both here in the States and overseas. NEVER have I been so disappointed. Hostels are unique, and always call for some flexible thinking and adjustment to their... More

Met the coolest people in this hostel. Really friendly open folk from all different places and backgrounds. Staff were helpful, location was handy. Had somewhere to park my bike which was nice. All in all a cool place and a cool street to stay on

I pretty much try to stay in hostels wherever I go. But my last visit here I got the feeling the owners were mocking backpack travelers. The best hostels are simple, clean and bright. This place looks like they have gone out of their way to install curtains that don't fit. My mattress and box spring were mismatched and the... More

People - good; location - acceptable if you have a car ; price - acceptable ; condition of the building - really, really tired and dark . My first impression of the inside of the house was that it was very dark with too many tiny rooms narrow hallways and creaking floors. Maybe like going to your great aunts house... More

I stayed in a private room and ensuite bathroom. Four to five people could have slept in my room with me. My bed was comfortable and the hot shower was welcome. The windows were open when I arrived and stayed open while I was there, allowing me to enjoy the clean New Mexico air. Check-in and check-out were easy and... More
