Hostel in Arroyo Seco

Popular and somewhat affordable hostel in the heart of Arroyo Seco, which makes a cozy high-country alternative to paying Taos prices. A big round fireplace in the central lodge warms guests in winter, there’s a shared kitchen, and you can choose between clean (if a tad threadbare) private rooms, simple dorms, and, in summer, even a tipi and campground.
