This place is not for those who expect all the amenities of a hotel. But, the common space is comfortable and well-appointed with kitchen, baths, living area and outlets for charging devices. Also, although there is a shuttle service, it operates only twice at day. So unless you have your own transportation, it's not terribly convenient for those wanting to... More

Hi and thanks for your review. We do have Wall Tents for our guests who are looking for a more authentic wilderness experience- they are fully equipped with comfortable cots and warm sleeping bags, but they don't have electricity, so those who stay in tents will have to rely on the outlets in our common area to charge electronics, etc....

I spent a lot of time in/near Denali NP in September 2013. I had three separate stays at the hostel during this time - a walled creekside tent for one night, Iceworm Cabin for one night, and Razorback Cabin for 4 nights. All were excellent stays, very clean and comfortable. The walled tent is naturally less roomy with two full-size... More

The Denali Mountain Morning is next to a creek and surrounded by trees, really a beautiful place. We just made one dorm with two bunker beds private. The room was clean and cozy. My only complaint is that there was only a small heater in the room, which did not really make the room warm. I know it was August,... More

Hello; Thanks so much for staying with us and commenting on our service and facilities. We are listening.

This was my first hostel experience and it was awesome! I stayed in Yanert for 3 nights, it was nice cozy cabin with 3 bunks.

Hello and thank you so much for your kind words. This year we had a bit of everything it seemed. A late thaw and frozen septic and failed water pressure tank was our start, but then we had nice warm temperatures. The combination however must have been perfect for mosquito proliferation as Denali was hit by more of those little... More

Really like this Hostel, in nature, wildness. Cabin we lived was nice, kitchen and dinning room are clean, tidy, and comfort! Only thing is that the bathrooms were a little bit not warm enough in Sept.(we lived there in Sept. 6 to 10, 2013).

Highly recommend staying here. I had a bunk in the Octagon, which is really close to a perfectly adequate and clean bathroom reserved for that room only. Not entirely sure if the bottom sheets are cleaned after each guest? But overall I'd say it's quite clean. Kitchen is gorgeous. A cabin by the lovely creek would be ideal. Staying here... More

Very pleasantly surprised how nice this was! Only the second hostel we have ever stayed in and the first was one we also stayed in on this trip to Alaska (down in Anchorage).

Such a nice little spot with lots of stand-along cabins nestled in trees. Each was a super-short stroll from the main lodge/showers with the kitchen and lots of bathrooms. All common areas appear to be cleaned on a daily basis. Tons of utensils, pots/pans in kitchen. Large tables to sit and eat comfortably. We stayed in a room with bunks... More

This is a great place! Cabins are rustic, but clean and comfortable. We were in Highwater and loved the creek burbling outside our door. The creek was loud, which I loved, but might be distracting if you like it quiet. It isn't big, but we didn't spend much time there so it didn't mater much. I liked that it was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful setting on a creek. Private cabins, private rooms, hostel beds and wall-tents. 13 miles from the park entrance, but with a free shuttle service. The only way to see Denali on a budget. The hostel is clean, the staff is super-friendly and helpful and we offer discounted prices on local tours and transportation. We are the source for the lowest cost tickets for the Alaska Railroad and sell tickets for The Park Connection Motorcoach. And we offer the lowest prices on nearly all the local tours. We look forward to serving you! ... more   less
