“Our hostel overlooking Marathon”

A small two story hostel south of the train tracks that run parallel to US Route 90 as it passes through Marathon, TX made of papercrete (a local means of creating a concrete replacement made of paper) and a cup overflowing with charm. The hostel's courtyard is home to a stove pipe fireplace and open air kitchen, but the true hidden beauty of this place is the upstairs bedroom, complete with observatory deck and lacking the entire westward facing wall, so you literally fall asleep under the stars and out in the open desert. Traveler Tip. Bicyclists touring West Texas stay here free.
