Great place to stay during exploration of denali. Shuttles to park were very convenient. Good place to meet and interact with other guests. Nice rooms and also option for staying in tent. Staff was extremely helpful and arranged discounts to other activities. One suggestion is to load up on groceries before arriving to denali area because denali prices much higher.

Great place to stay. Clean and cozy with friendly people and a nice common area. Shower and bathroom facilities were outside, but I never had a problem with availability. Would have liked to use the outdoor firepit had it not been rainy, looked like it would have been a fun space. Highly recommend for a nice place to stay near... More

This hostel was better than one could expect! Rachel I. was a great help in making my experience easy and comfortable. Thank you Rachel!

I am a seasoned traveler who has stayed and worked at many hostel's over the years. I came here with my 8 yr old son and we stayed in Highwater cabin...we absolutely loved it! I wanted to introduce him to the "backpacker" lifestyle and this was amazing. We loved hearing the sound of the creek at night and the views... More

We had terrific service by genuinely interested staff. Stayed in the Iceworm cabin, both sides. Location of this cabin is terrific, right next to a rushing stream. Beds are comfortable. Cabin and other facilities were always very clean. Enjoyed interacting (or not) with other guests and found the location perfect since we wanted a quiter setting than what seems to... More

All the cabins were reserved so I rent a tent next to the river, but was good too. I enjoyed all the time, people from here are very kind. Also all the services were good, nice and clean restrooms. I met nice people at the octagon. I recommend this place. Best wishes.

What a great place to stay. This is not a motel or hotel, mostly are cabins and tents but with a Large cabin called the Octagon that houses the stoves, dorm style rooms a dinner table and all the cookware you'll need.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in one of the tents. The welcome was excellent, the octogan was great fun! Showers superb and I just loved the location by the water! Used the kitchen one evening and eat at the pizza reaturant opposite the second which was brilliant! Thank you for an excellent stay. Liz Cobb

I rented a tent in early June because all of the more affordable cabins were taken. I was scared it would be too noisy, too buggy, and too uncomfortable, but I'm pleased to say it was none of these. The tents are next to the river, with one on each side of the community fire pit. Each night people congregated... More
