Very comfortable and friendly atmosphere. You're locked out from 9am to 5pm but I lived with that OK. Met a lot of people there that I've kept in touch with although that's not necessarily a function of the hostel. The hostel is small and the layout conducive to meeting people.

We were stuck without a bed and stayed a night here. It is clean and well run and in a good location. You do one chore each day and the water was hot. Fairly well equipped kitchen and a good amount of local information.

I had no idea this hostel was on a steep hill! I'd heard it was on a "hill" but didn't equate that to a San Francisco hill so keep this in mind. If you aren't into a steep walk then don't stay here, though it does have an excellent view! As for the average review, it's a hostel, $12 a... More

I am so glad I found this Pearl here in Juneau. I was amazed with the Staff service that I felt I was in a 5 Star Hotel without the outrageous prices. My family was impressed. Oh boy I was the bomb for bringing them here. They have a lot of information with maps, trails and things to do locally.... More

Joanna and Jenn provide a friendly and well-organized hosteling experience for all who enter this convenient and very clean facility. If you are driving, parking requires some creativity and flexibility. Like Seattle and San Francisco, Juneau has some very steep hills. Harris Street is on one of those. It's worth the effort, though.

if you would be willing to be out of your room from 9 am to 5 pm. So you could save 100 dollars or more per night than the hostile is your place. Just 12 dollars a night Juneau's best kept secret. Great staff quite a few blocks to a store so bring what you need very quiet and friendly.... More

My stay at the hostile was horrible. Upon entering it looked nice outside but when inside I'll briefly describe what it's like. When walking in it smells bad, like a smokers house. The furniture is old. They didn't allow us to bring our own sleeping bags or blankets cause they provided us with some. The ones provided where old and... More

I appreciate that they are only $12, you can't beat that and it's hard to complain. But be aware what you are getting into. 1.) They are closed from 9am to 5pm and if you are staying more than one day you don't have access to your stuff if you leave it inside. Yes, they boot you out at 9am... More

This hostel is centrally located within walking distance of central Juneau while maintaining the charm of a small house — it's also right next to some of the prettiest hiking in the area. Dorm beds are $12 a night — and prices are kept low through chores done by visitors. Run by a non-profit and staffed very well. Easily the... More

Staff holds visitors to rules and this keeps the place rolling along smoothly. Clean bathrooms, easy laundry on site and they supply deregent. Easy safe and free room outside for short-term storage. Buses are close and take the bus to Deharts gas station via the express bus. Next, hitch hike towards eagle glacier. So many places to get out and... More
