We had the octagon private room. The room was very nice, the bathrooms were also good. The kitchen was well stocked with tools and some leftover foods from previous guests. The bonfire and river were very nice, and if you have a car it is the perfect location if you're taking the Denali bus.

We stayed here 3 nights in total. 2 nights in the "splatter rock" cabin and another night in the Yanert cabin. When we checked in we were greeted by Tom, the check in man, shuttle operator, local information service, house keeper and so much more. He alone knew more about the area than both information centers in the park, thanks... More

What a wonderful place! It was extremely clean. Staff is amazing. Kitchen was well stocked and clean and plenty of storage. The creek running thru the property is perfect. 3 wonderful restaurants just across the highway. Perfect location away from the tourist trap area of glitter gulch. I wish I could have stayed longer. I think the owners need to... More

Brilliant value, amazing views (we visited in May, so nearby peaks were snowcapped, the stream was gushing). You can enjoy the view from the common campfire area. The octagon is one of the best common areas I've seen at hostels in the USA, and so are the rooms.

As a solo female traveler, safety was important to me, but so was an environment where I could make friends. This hostel was perfect for both!

THis place is lovely. A bit out of the way if you don't have a car. They do have a shuttle, but it does not run very often. The places closer to the entrance to the park are a little easier to access due to walking distance or shuttles that run more often. With that said, this place is less... More

We have been travelling for 5 weeks now and have decided this place was by far the best. We stayed in one of the tents and while it was pretty chilly they provided you with the warmest sleeping bag, a mosquito net and we had the best nights sleep.

This oasis is so welcome along the stream of our travels. Clean, woodsy, rugged yet warm and beautiful. What a joy to be here. Best hostel ever for me. Friendly and focused ownership by staff. A place with heart and peace. I'm so grateful. Excellent kitchen space, clean private showers with private toilets, bear spray to borrow.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful setting on a creek. Private cabins, private rooms, hostel beds and wall-tents. 13 miles from the park entrance, but with a free shuttle service. The only way to see Denali on a budget. The hostel is clean, the staff is super-friendly and helpful and we offer discounted prices on local tours and transportation. We are the source for the lowest cost tickets for the Alaska Railroad and sell tickets for The Park Connection Motorcoach. And we offer the lowest prices on nearly all the local tours. We look forward to serving you! ... more   less
