We recently stayed at the hostel for two nights with our family of 5 as a part of a month-long trip to AK from OR. Since there were 5 of us, we were able to rent out an entire bunk cabin. The cabin was simple, but very comfortable and charming. The shared facilities (kitchen, common area, bathrooms) were all clean... More

We stayed in the Razorback Cabin for 2 nights. The cabin has its own kitchen with everything that you would need. The large, comfortable bedroom upstairs has a huge window which looks out onto the river and mountains. The communal showers were very clean with plenty of hot water. Their website has loads of information on everything you would need... More

Thank you so much! It's always great to hear we did well. Your point about the steep stairs in the Razorback are right on too. People can kind of get the feel for how steep by looking at the photo on our website. Thanks again, and come back and see us in the future~ More

We stayed at this hostel from 7/6/12 until 7/9/12. We loved every second of it. Sarah picked us up at the WAC inside the park. She is such a lovely person! The shuttle bus of the hostel is very convenient. We stayed in tent nr. 5 beside the creek. It felt like a real Alaskan experience. Don't expect much though,... More

Thanks for your comments! The tents are basic, your basic canvas wall tent. But they are up on a wooden platform and inside you have two camp cots with pads and we provide zero degree rated sleeping bags with a liners, pillows and pillow cases and even towels and washcloths. You get that AND full use of our common lodge... More

Really enjoyed my 1nt stay at the Denali Mountain Morning Hostel and Lodge staying in one of the cabins. Cabin, common area and bathroom were all very clean. Cabin was warm and cozy with good space for 2 people and their luggage. Bathroom was basic but clean and neat. Only concern was the hot water wasn't very hot. Kitchen facilities... More

Thanks for writing and for the kind words! As for the hot water, it can be an issue if you there are a lot of people using it at the same time, as it is everywhere. To help with this we have our water heated very hot so less is needed. However, this it seems is not enough judging from... More

We stayed in the tents; two cots, bag liner, heavy sleeping bag, pillows, and towels/washcloth provided (weather got down to 30's but we were plenty warm once in our bags). We looked in on the cabins and looked great/cozy too. The commons area is nice, clean, and has everything you need. Ali and the staff are extremely friendly/helpful. The location... More

Thank you! We appreciate hearing good things, always! I know it helps travelers too to hear from other travelers. Our Wall Tents ARE nice. They cost the same as a BUNK! And, we provide Zero Degree F rated sleeping bags and additional ones if requested on the colder nights at no extra charge. The bags all have removable liners to... More

Enjoyed my stay here for 4 nights to explore Denali national park in June. The rooms were great and there was a really interesting mix of people travelling through. I much appreciated the shuttle bus into the park as there weren't any options for independent travellers otherwise. The staff are very welcoming and their laid back attitude influences the atmosphere... More

Great place to stay. Stayed two nights in two different cabins. Both were great. Simple but comfortable and clean. Hot showers, quiet and a great deal for the price. Great atmosphere and a good staff. It's about 15 miles south of the entrance to Denali Park. We spent the night then drove up to the Park in the morning and... More

My original reservation was for 3 nights in the male bunk room. But when it got down to 25F one night at the Tek Camground inside Denali NP I called the Denali Hostel hoping they would have a bed for an additional three nights. They were very friendly (though surprised I wanted to stay a total of six nights). I... More
