First let me mention that after leaving the Oscuro Hostel, I had planned on going to the Route 66 Hostel in Albuquerque.  Well, I made it there, but it was a little too crowded for me.  It wasn't overcrowded, just a little more crowded than I prefer.  The manager was very good about it.  He gave me a refund and told me about the Sandia Hostel located in the mountains not far from there.  Now that sounded more like my kind of place.  A little while later I was sitting on one on the big bunk beds in front of an huge open window at the Sandia Mountain Hostel.

A breath of fresh air!

Sandia Hostel was extremely clean and neat. Bathrooms were large and spotless.  The owners were friendly.
I ended up returning to the Sandia Hostel during my second road trip the following year.
