I was prepared for staying on Dale's good side after reading reviews of his hostel. I spent 4 days there, and did not have any problems personally with Dale, but I knew the possibility of confrontation was there if something was done to Dale's disliking. The hostel is located up a steep hill, If you're not up to it, take... More

It's a warm place. It has a good feeling about it. I stayed there for a week, I enjoyed it. Beautiful view towards the harbour. Dale is alright, what is wrong with you people. I recommend, if you are not fussy.

I've stayed here several times, over the years. I found it clean and comfortable. It's high on a hill, so you will need to be in shape for hiking from the nearest bus stop. Yes, the host can be ornery, sometimes. The location is nice, with a great view from the host's sitting room. It's fairly handy to the Safeway... More

This hostel is great for any stay in Ketchikan! The views from the warm, ecclectic living room and wrap around balconies are breathtaking. I could have stayed outside much more if it was not raining. There is a great waterfall just behind the property and on the street- how cool is that! Our hostel host Tim was super knowledgeable about... More

We were expecting the worst from this place after reading the reviews, however we were pleasantly suppressed to find it was clean and comfortable. Dale was defiantly an interesting character. As long as you take him with a pinch of salt he is actually nice and is genially concerned for his guests safety (even if he did sound like a... More

Not a good place. Was not clean and owner was negative and nasty. No common room or wifi. Not recommended except if desparate. We chose to go elsewhere. Also on top of hill with no public transportation.

Myself and my husband stayed here In May 2011 and as all the other reviews have stated, it is a bit old and Dale can be quite grumpy however if you take the time to chat with him you will find a very warm, and interesting man with plenty of tales to tell. This is a hostel not a B&B... More

I stayed here for a full week, and would definitely do so again. The hostel is actually run out of Dale's (the owner's) house. Dale himself was initially rather terrifying, but if you get the chance to really speak to him (I saw him twice the whole week) he's very nice with a lot of great stories and advice. That... More

Me and my husband stayed at the hostel for 2 nights and would never go there again. Dale, the owner, lives in the hostel and it seems as if he doesn't want anybody around him. We used the kitchen which he didn't like at all. He moved our stuff so that food disappeared. He talked to my husband as if... More

Seems like some guest do not read the rules nor do they read the signs on all doors in kitchen,This is not a B and B it is a Hostel so be ready to share. When people do not clean up after theirs nor do they respect the Hostel be ready to get reprimanded. We try hard to make a... More

The place was very dirty, dark rooms and not really clean showers. The host does not give you the feeling that you're a paying customer. The next time we'll stay in another hostel which is available in Ketchikan. Kitchen and common room are shared with the host. Set up rules are always subject to change. And some rules are unwritten... More
