Sleeping : Santa Fe
Hostal La Qhia is truly a work of art. The natural wood and mosaic fits in nicely with the rustic feel of Santa Fe, and there is plenty of local artwork to admire while you’re relaxing from your afternoon hike. Though the private rooms aren’t exactly tramp-friendly, the dorms are definitely on budget and come equipped with excellent mattresses. There is an open-air kitchen for guest use, hot water showers, lockers, and a small restaurant. There is no internet available, but right next door there is an internet cafe that charges $0.75USD an hour.
8-bed dorm — $11USD
Triple private with shared bath — $43USD
From bus terminal, walk left, take first right and follow the signs
