Stayed for a few days for first visit to AK. Nice on the budget and convenient location if you don't care about being downtown. I didn't have a car so took advantage of public transport with the bus stop only a couple blocks away, and also the complimentary pickup service to and from the train station provided by the hostel.
I don't quite agree with some of the other negative comments here earlier. If you are expecting a 24-hour personal concierge, then stay at one of the many $200+ night hotels and hire a butler as backup (because even the chain hotels are short staffed). If you walk in and no one is immediately available to greet you, sit and relax for a few minutes in the comfortable common area or kitchen. I found the bathroom and room clean (and quiet at night) and bed was great - my back always worries about getting a bed with an old worn out, soft mattress.
And as others have mentioned, other extras include free internet and wi-fi, tv in room, laundry, large kitchen, and bicycles for hire. Would look forward to return again next time I get back to Anchorage.
