This hostel came highly recommended and it was easy to see why. A great price with clean and comfortable rooms to get over jet lag, spotless kitchen and bathrooms and a large and diverse "free food" shelf, secure bicycle storage and a friendly owner who clearly takes pride in his hostel. I would certainly stay here again the next time... More

Arctic is conveniently located two blocks from Walmart where you can pick up anything you may have forgotten. My family and I stayed here at the start of our trip and it was helpful to talk to Jeff and other travelers to gather some ideas. The bathrooms, room and interior are super clean. You have to take shoes off before... More

I spent a total of 5 nights here and was very happy with the room and the helpfulness of the staff. The hostel was always clean and well managed with good wifi. I walked everywhere and the airport is a reasonably priced taxi fare away

We stayed here for 2 weeks. It was our home base for 2 weeks of touring throughout Alaska. The rate was affordable. The room was sparse, but functional. The bed was comfortable. The hostel was exceptionally clean. The rules are posted. 2 large refridgerators are available for your food. Washers and dryers are available and for a reasonable price. The... More

I started my long trip in Alaska in this hostel and I've always done here. Despite being cheap, it's clean, quiet, nice, neat, and convenient parking. The kitchen is spectacular. Thanks to Tiffany and hope to return.

Public transport is in easy reach but the city centre is an... More

Clean, functional and quite well located. Very nice host. We stayed for 1 night on our way through Anchorage to Seward. We had a private room which was quiet. Kitchen was very large and well equipped.

Hostel, very friendly staff. Cheap. Comfortable rooms and spacious bathrooms. We arrived late at night and the staff was able to check on very quickly. They also gave us recommendations about places to eat out at night.

Having never stayed at hostels before, I was a little skeptic about how the place would turn out to be. But my opinion changed drastically after staying here for just a night! We were a group of three guys (including myself), looking for a place to stay in Anchorage for a night (around mid September in 2012). At less than... More
