This is a quaint ramshackle place that is slightly rough but surprisingly comfortable. It was clean and full of character. We stayed in Sourdough cabin, which is really a shack, but I would recommend it. It gave us a sense of the life of the early settlers in Alaska, and a bit like living in a children's fairy story (cabin... More

I visited the Nauti Otter and stayed 4 nights. It was clean and refreshing, even though it is my first time in a hostel. It was good enough to be a bed and breakfast! The owner makes the best breakfast muffins, a must try!

I was charged $50 for a cabin that needs to be demolished. The proprietor was very friendly when I called and didn't even asked me for the credit card to make the reservation (that was fishy...who knows how many people have turned her down as soon as they see the place). I was told that the single bed I was... More

This place was amazing! Other guests were very friendly, hostess was great! My adult son and I stayed here for one night while in Seward. It was very clean, and an overall great experience for myself, as it was my first Hostel experience.

We stayed in Heather's hostel for four nights, three in the dorm room, one in a cabin. The hostel was booked out because of a famous annual race. Despite 38 people crammed in this place, the nights were very quiet. Heather is a great host: she told us about places to go, we got discounts on tours, we went to... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Nauti Otter that was in a perfect spot for trips to Seward and nearby hiking. Heather sent a lot of great tips on things to see on the way to Seward, as well as things to do once there. Very helpful and appreciated! We stayed in the Wolf's Den Cabin, and were happy of... More

We ambled into Seward well after 9pm on a Thursday night with no reservations, and the Nauti Otter, while a ways outside of town, was the very first hostel we noticed on our way in. Heather welcomed us despite the hour and got us set up in one of the private exterior rooms. For the high-season rate of $90, we... More

We stayed in the Wolf Den cabin and had a great time! It was by far the best place we stayed all trip. It was also great having Heather there to suggest activities. We said we wanted to go on a day cruise and she gave us a break down of each company and tour then once we chose she... More

We stayed at the Nauti Otter for 4 nights and it was a very interesting experience. The hostel is clean and cozy, there are notices and instructions in fun pirate lingo all around, yummy wild strawberries grow right across the street (in July-Aug), an amazing number of things are available for make-it-yourself breakfast, and you might get to meet some...

Stayed in the little red and white camper. It was cozy inside. There was a shower house and toliet house outside. The house was open for us to use. The other guests there were friendly as well. Heather sent some great info about Seward and things to do there for different budgets before we even arrived. We ended up doing... More
