I spent 3 weeks in Anchorage area in July and visited here a couple times as it is just half a block or so from AMH (Alaska Mountains and Hiking) and found it to be a very relaxed meeting place for fellow adventurers planning their journeys. Seemed very secure, friendly, with interesting employees and visitors. Being close to AMH and... More

My friend and I didn't spend much time at the hostel - really just as a place to sleep after we landed and made our way to Seward. It was close to the airport and easy to find. We arrived really late and were told there was going to be an envelope for use to leave our payment in. When... More

Basecamp is an amazing hostel. More like a home with incredible people, an amazing owner and a backyard for long evenings and BBQs! I stayed there 2 times. For 3 nights and the second time 5 nights because I enjoyed it so much! I met incredible people there, heard awesome stories from other travellers and got amazing recommendations! ABSOLUTELY loooove... More

This is a great budget hostel in Anchorage. While the facilities are up to par and clean, the best part about BCA is the staff. I stayed there for a couple nights before catching a bus to Talkeetna early this summer. When the taxi I ordered never came, Ole (the owner), was willing to throw my several large bags of... More

Like the others have shared, Base Camp is a chilled, clean, well located hostel with friendly staff. All of the amenities are available: full kitchen, plenty of hot water, computer terminals and wifi, free parking, bike rentals, and large common rooms. They also have a huge yard if you'd like to pitch a tent. I would definitely stay here again.....and,... More

I stayed at Base Camp Anchorage in June. The hostel is very clean, inexpensive, and the owner and staff are very relaxed and friendly. Location is within walking distance or cheap taxi of the airport (if you like to walk--it's about 3 miles) and across the street from REI. Would recommend. Make sure you book with them directly on their... More

Great little hostel. The owner is knowledgeable and friendly, as is the staff. The place is plain and clean as a hostel should be. Lots of good books, maps etc. Large yard. Free coffee and tea. Beds aren't the most comfortable, but you shouldn't expect much from a $25 room. Convenient location for stores and cafes, also for the bus... More

Stayed here in 2006 and the owner has changed but same great vibe. Super friendly people and welcoming. All types are on board. Very clean and very homely. I just wish Olè the owner would wave me goodbye at the door. Haha. Get here. So affordable AND free oatmeal

The best experience for sure. This hostel has a fantastic location and a it is great place. It's extremely clean, neat, good rooms, big common room and kitchen, it has lockers and a huge backyard. So, the the normal things that a hostel should have, this one for sure does. Alaska has to many things to do that in fact... More

Quaint, clean and simple! Base camp Anchorage is able to fulfill all your travel needs. Many stores, restaurants and bars within walking distance, bikes to rent for further exploration and a helpful, very friendly staff that will point you in the right direction of fun and adventure- and if they're going that way they might even give you a ride!...
