The Homer Hostel is one of my most memorable hostels I have ever stayed in all my 30 years of travelling and staying in hostel around the world. Why?? 1) I called more than 15 times from 19-22 June 2013 but nobody answered the telephone. It was like the hostel is closed for good 2) I sent an email on... More

In spite of the kindness of the host, this Hostel has nothing to be remembered for: dirty and ultra-cold rooms, unclosable doors and windows, the stinkiest bathroom I've ever met (please don't touch the shower mat!) and no cost-effective fares. I am a flexible person, I have slept many times in tents or in uncomfortable places, but there is nothing... More

Pros: Friendly staff, internet works reliably, location is safe and quiet. Cons: Absolutely FILTHY, particularly the bathrooms. The mattresses, bedding and pillows are old and dingy. This place is way overpriced for what it is, but I guess that's what you get in Alaska in the summertime.

Wonderful location. Friendly staff. But filthy. Not dirty. Filthy. No cleaning staff. Hostelers are supposed to clean the place. Computer for guests is a plus. Inadequate toilet/bathing facilities for the number of rooms/beds. More than run down. It's never been run up. And COLD at night. No heat turned on in the house.

Homer Hostel is in a nice area of town, with great views of the bay. It is fithy though, scary to walk bare foot anywhere. There was a "housekeeper" who was around to clean and make beds He lives in a tent outside the back door. If you ignore the dirty floors and spend all your time away it is... More
