After being forced by my friend to camp for 3 freezing nights in Denali, I told him that I refused to camp in Fairbanks. He is on a limited budget and wanted to stay at a hostel to save money. I have no problem with that as I have stayed in dozens of hostels all over the world. The Fairbanks... More

After trying our luck with Billies Backpackers' Hostel we decided to go for somewhere less creepy. For the time of year we were there our options were limited. Winter is not a time you'll get a range of options in Fairbanks. After a brief search we came across this one. Initially shocked and pleased to find it, we chose to... More

We booked this place in June through hostelbookers.com and was charged 10% ($6) immediately. We called Fairbanks International Hostel a week later to request a date change for our stay. It was agreed without any questions. But when we arrive on 8/16, we were told the "1 Deluxe Private Room for 2" we reserved was non-existent since the hostel "was... More

The $25 beds are located out back in an unacceptable tree house accessible by long aluminum ladder or in an old RV. The $65 hostel room is a twin bedded private room with a... More

Firstly, I had a very hard time finding this place. It's not marked, no sign--it's actually just another "venture" of the same couple who run the Seven Gables. I had booked a private room ahead of time and when I showed up, they had no record of my reservation. I was given the option to rent an apartment w/ kitchen... More

We booked a private deluxe room through hostelbooker. But we couldnt find them even when we were exactly in front of their garden since there is absolutely no sign showing the existence of this hostel. We didnt realize it is the same place as 7 Gables Inn Fairbanks until called them. Strictly speaking, it is not a hostel but a... More
