Both last week and this week we had events to attend in Albuquerque so we took our bikes onto the NM Railrunner train from Santa Fe to Alvarado Station. From the Station we went west on Central Ave about 10 interesting blocks through the heart of the revitalized Downtown to the Route 66 Hostel. We stayed in two different homey upstairs private rooms . The Hostel stored our bikes for us. Though there is a kitchen with disheswe chose to splurge and eat out. Lunch was at the very nice Flying Star Cafe on Silver Street with free wifi and with vegan options ! For dinner we walked four blocks to Sushi Hanna for their half price happy hour sushi then at 8pm went to the Launchpad to hear three bands which had very reasonable drink prices. Next morning we enjoyed the free wi-fi as we had the included breakfast of dry cereal, powdered milk, fruit and coffee. We took a couple of chore cards and completed them. The bus stop we needed was very close to the Hostel and we took our bikes to the University of New Mexico to the 350.org event. Afterward, we coasted our bikes back down the hill to the train station. We have stayed in hostels and backpackers in numerous countries around the world, and this one is as good as most of those.
