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. Everyone there is there for the same reason so were all...

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.

Don't let their old website fool you. This place is spectacular! We stayed two nights in the High-water cabin. It was clean, comfortable, and really spacious for the two of us. All the bathroom/shower facilities were surprisingly nice. The octagon (main building) was super nice as well. This place was such a great value. If you are traveling on a...

I spent three nights here. The first two were in a private room and the third was in the women's dormitory. It was very clean and comfortable. Be ready for the mosquitos!

Hello and thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, even in spite of the sometimes overwhelming Alaskan mosquito population.

The hostel is beautiful! I don't think that I have ever stayed in a more beautiful place! The staff was super friendly and helpful. The common area/ kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil we needed to make a nice dinner at s large table. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean! We cannot wait to come back!

Traveling into Denali for a weekend, I did not want to spend a lot for lodging. Normally, I go for a campsite, but going solo this weekend I opted to stay at the hostel. This will be my first choice now when looking for lodging in Denali. My bunkhouse was neat, clean, and surprisingly spacious for the price. Nobody else...

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.
