We stayed at a few different places while visiting Alaska and this was by far our favorite. The decor was eclectic but clean, the staff was very professional, all the shared spaces were organized and we'll maintained, and the beds were so comfortable. I think I had the best night's sleep of my trip at this hostel. Also, this place... More

We arrived in Denali by train from Fairbanks. We saw the visitor's center and attended the 2pm demo with sled dogs. Hostel pick up was punctual. Issue was weather. A big snow storm on Aug 29-30. We got to the hostel and were told the rules but I had to get our dinner going and warm up. We had a... More

The beds were very comfy, however the loft has a very steep staircase, and the height difference from the top bunk and the bottom of the loft is pretty small. Bring a surge protector thing to charge everything. It only has like 2 plugs inside. As for the "good for 6, up to 7 people", the 7th bed is actually... More

We booked 3 nights in tents outside Denali, hoping to save some money to spend on adventure. We are 64 and 62, and were a little cautious about staying in a hostel and especially in a tent. I am not sure that many of my friends would enjoy this site, but it was an extremely pleasant experience for my wife... More

The Hostel is clean with nice bathrooms and a great communal lounge and kitchen area. I came back to stay rather than take an alternative route, this Hostel is a real treasure situated in a pretty location next to a river.

My first trip to Alaska I stayed at Denali Mountain Morning Hostel and Cabins. I enjoyed the experience and the people I met. This trip I needed a cabin since I would have my sister and mom with me. Once again DMM fit my needs. We had a cozy cabin that sat right beside the creek. It was an easy... More

I don't like staying at hostels but this time options were limited ( surely not paying 200$ per night!). I wouldn't even call this place hostel - it is very clean, exceptionally friendly stuff , amazing location right by the river, very unique Alaskan style hostel. I stayed here 2 nights and surely enjoyed it. They provide free shuttle to... More

One hundred percent stay here. Clean comfortable place, full kitchen, quiet, international guests, all respectful, well organized, easily accessed, tasteful. We met many other travelers while cooking dinner and got good tips. Coffee made early in the morning, shuttles were timely to the main park. All was very very good for any ages.

This combination of hostel, cabins and wall tents is located in an absolutely gorgeous location along a creek in the Denali Wilderness about fifteen miles from the park. The main house, dining room and shared kitchen are comfortable with a touch of rustic elegance. The bathrooms and showers are spotlessly clean and well maintained with plenty of hot water. The...

In a nutshell, we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. We stayed 3 nights with our 2 young boys in the Coffeegrinder Cabin. While the cabin was a bit tight for a family of 4 with a fair amount of luggage, we could spread out in the "Octagon" community area, which consists of the kitchen, living room, outdoor deck and...
