Really nice hostel. Breakfast was good, with free eggs and pancakes. Staff were fantastic and the location is very central between downtown and old town.


Great stay


I loved that you could cook your own eggs in the morning. There was no air con/fan in my room so it got a bit hot. Good hostel though, and close to lots of breaking bad locations :D


Everything was gross dirty and moldy. A guy was slapping on paint when the whole place need to be gutted. And they gave me one pillow legit an inch thick. It was a dirty place only the price was good but now you know why


Good hostel for a couple of nights in Albuquerque in a good location. Only concern was the bunk beds. Quite squeaky in the night but mainly a safety concern. Top bunks have no barrier on the edge, guy in the hostel took a near 6-foot fall to the floor while fast asleep in the middle of the night. Could easily be replaced.

Location is easily accessible by transit and staff was friendly. Although the reception isn't open 24/7, the staff does live on the premises. It would be more reassuring if this was made known prior to booking or if a staff member could be on-call for those staying at the hostel. Otherwise, enjoyed the front porch for connecting with new people and taking in some fresh air!


An old building.


Good things: very friendly helpful staff, great location downtown, great atmosphere Not-so-good things: no lockers; also getting an email before arriving saying they wanted the rest of the first night's payment pronto. Like on PayPal or something. I've stayed in many hostels and never had this asked of me before


centrally located, very kind atmosphere. Dorm: a strange, sick person was in my dorm- asked for an ambulance the next day. everything else was most agreable. i heard the staff give detailed information to fellow travelers, new to the continent and area. Absolutely helpful.
