I spent twelve weeks in Backpackers Annex Building last summer and it was fine...Clean room with TV, microwave and fridge. Wifi was a bit slower, but computers near front desk are available for free. I did even my laundry in the hostel. Nice and helpful people - I miss You guys! And Norman is so cute!

Economic, clean and well run. The Alaska Backpackers Inn is very clean, with full service kitchen, wonderful entertainment/TV lounge area. It is 10 minute walk to down town and 15 minutes to Carrs, the nearest grocery store. A great place for tourists, artists, and people moving to Alaska. Not a place for people who party. By far the best part... More
