I was here for two nights in September 2003.
The staff running this hostel were very nice. It's a large, old house right on Central Avenue between Downtown and Old Town.
There are three floors. The second floor has several private rooms. My first night, I shared a private room with two other girls (there was a queen bed and a twin bed separated by a wall and French door) with a private bathroom (no shower, just a strange tub). This was pretty nice.
The second night, the two girls had left, and I was in the male bunks, which are in the basement. The basement is, unfortunately, not well-ventilated, and, though the fans were running all night, it was still pretty hot in there.
The first floor is the female bunks, which looked MUCH more comfortable.
A small, uneventful dinner was provided. A simple chore was expected in the morning. Key deposit + linen fee.
Unique Quality: Good location, friendly staff, limited parking
Directions: Central Avenue @ 10th Street
Built in 1905 as an apartment building, this very inexpensive Hostel is close to the bus system and just a couple of minutes walking distance from Downtown's entertainment district one way and Old Town the other.
Featured are a common kitchen and some food staples but nothing gourmet. Rates vary in price starting at $17 a night for a dorm bed and go up to $33 a night for a suite that can accommodate up to 3 people.
Reservations are incouraged. The maximum stay is 10 days and guest mat live no closer than 50 miles from Albuquerque. This is the perfect place for the traveler on a tiny budget.
Directions: Central Ave and 10th Street - west of Downtown
