I visited Anchorage about a month ago, and stayed in the Spenard Hostel my first couple of nights. The hostel was very friendly and welcoming; I was there to run in the marathon; they introduced me to a couple other runners right when I got there, which made planning a lot easier. There's plenty of space-multiple kitchens and common areas... More

Stayed here three times in two weeks while, a great place to clean up and regroup if backpacking elsewhere. We tented in the yard which worked nicely and saved us some money. Close to bus stop which takes you right downtown.

Anchorage is a beautiful city, but it is not cheap. Spenard Hostel is not only affordable, but it is a home away from home. As soon as I arrived, someone offered to help me with my bag and told me to just relax. There is a sitting area, kitchen area, and clean bathrooms. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. I... More

I love Spenard hostel! I stayed here in 2004 and 2008 and will be staying there again this August. The hostel is very clean and the handmade wood bunk beds are sturdy and comfortable. The owner provides free coffee and items to make breakfast which is a plus in expensive Anchorage. It's super close to the airport and the friendly... More

Spenard Hostel is very close to the airport and you can easily take the bus there from the airport, the driver will have no problem telling you where to get off. The hostel is very cozy even though i didn't pay for the whole room i had a whole room twice and one of them i didn't even use. Highly... More

I was in need of a shower after Treking around and seeing Alaska. I was camping out and just doing some fun adventures in Alaska. I googled to find a shower and the #spenardhostel came up. I went with it. I called and they welcomed me. A very clean place with friendly folk running it. I will be staying there... More

I was impressed with this place. Cozy accomodations, friendly staff, bike rentals, nice location; I even got some free bear spray! It seems to be common here for people to share stuff like food and stuff they no longer need. I would recommend it to anyone

After flying from DC to Dallas to Seattle and finally to Anchorage, I was certainly ready for a rest and found the Spenard Hostel to be just the place. I had called and made a reservation and everything was just as I was told. Meredith, the young lady who took the reservation left a note on the door with my... More

I travel to Alaska quite a lot and hate imposing on my friends. I love hostels, and Spenard is one of my favorite parts of Anchorage, so I decided to give this place a whirl. It's great - friendly staff, nice kitchens, lots of hot water, great location, great information about the city and state. It was a very nice,... More
