The closest hostel to Taos Ski Valley offers a range of lodging choices, from individual rooms with private or shared bathrooms to communal dorm rooms. There's a common space with a pool table, fireplace, and a full kitchen for guests to use. (You're welcome to pick produce from the garden in the summer; just leave something in the donation jar in exchange.) There are also four snug year-round cabins, and roomy but unheated tepees set up in the summer, complete with an outdoor kitchen. (There is camping, too.) The property is very clean as hostels go, with friendly owners, plenty of outdoor space to wander, and a wider age range of guests than you might expect.
