We loved talkeetna, this hostel is great and the guys and girls were really nice and informative. Dave was casual and nice didnt get in our face which is good. Its a relaxed atomosphere you can have some beers on the couch, cook in the big kitchen and have your coffee and breakfast in peace if you like! Rooms were... More

I lived at the Talkeetna Hostel for several months this summer and I have to say; It was one of the best experiences I've had staying anywhere. Keep in mind, it is a HOSTEL, not a HOTEL. Where you are allowed to make yourself at home and just have a good time. Nobody is going to take your bags for... More

I have seen some of the recent reviews of this place and agree with the posts made during 2014 and not 2013. I think what happened is that the place is under new management, and it shows. This place could be great, if it were just managed better. We were there early in June so I do not think it... More

This hostel was filthy! I had to clean the bathroom before using it and I made the mistake of opening the refrigerator - shudder. Prior to booking I read positive reviews...maybe a new owner? On the upside, it was cheap but I wouldn't stay there again.

I had 10 other people in the group and they were not happy when we pulled up, place looked junky! Inside was smelly, kitchen sink stunk so bad I could barely stand by it, they had 2 cats and the inside was messy and dated which made us quickly assume dirty. No one would sit anywhere. Inside bathroom was ok,... More

Staying in this hostel I have met some of the most incredible people I have ever known. Everyone is welcoming, friendly, and willing to chip in and help out with chores. They coffee is delicious and family dinners are priceless. I can't imagine Alaska without it, I will most certainly be staying here again.

Have seen a lot of positive reviews here on Tripadvisor, but the only explanation must be that the place has switched owners. The place in itself looked more like a junkyard than a hostel. Inside it smelled very badly and our room couldn't have been cleaned for weeks. Our sheets were dirty and the bathroom was perhaps even dirtier. We've... More

If you are a family, this is not the place for you. It is dirty with mold in bathroom and spider webs hanging off the fixtures. The kitchen is clean but that is the only place. When we arrived, instead of changing the sheets, the guy just went in and made the bed. Hence, we slept on our sleeping bags.... More

Don't go there! It's super dirty! The filth on the floors and in the bathroom shows it hasn't been cleaned for months ! There are molds on the bathroom's ceiling. The toilet inside is leaking or so. Anyways, the floor was always wet. There were towels all over and old cleaning products as well. The guy taking care of the... More

We stayed in the little cabin in the back with 2 bunk beds and 1 (3rd story?) loft bed. We are a family with a 16 and 22 year old. Cabin was clean with an electric heater, several electrical outlets, plenty of shelving for our stuff and hooks for coats. Bathrooms were very clean and showers were hot! We really... More
