 Central Street, Route 66, downtown Albuquerque

Albuquerque is the largest city in the state of New Mexico, USA. Founded in 1706, there are almost 530,000 people in the city area, while the greater metropolitan area is home to over 850,000 citizens. Albuquerque is also home to the University of Albuquerque.

The Albuquerque International Sunport is the airport for the city. The city is also served by train lines, and two major vehicular highways (I-40 and I-25) are accessible by car or by bus lines. Rental cars are a great option of travel, especially for groups, because the prices are pretty reasonable. However, there is a good public transport system in the city too.

The hostels in Albuquerque are not concentrated in any particular area, but rather spread out a bit. The price ranges are about the same as other places in the U.S: you'll pay 20-25 dollars or a bit more for a dorm bed. The Albuquerque hostels are a great source of information, and it is highly recommended to ask the staff for help while planning your daily activities in the city.

One thing to definitely see when you stay at an Albuquerque hostel is the old town area. It's architecturally and atmospherically pleasant and interesting. There are many museums and cultural places to see for those interested of particular note is the Rattlesnake Museum. Other places we recommend include the famous Albuquerque Biological Park (which is also the home of the Rio Grande Zoo), and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center if you're interested in Native American history and heritage.
