家の内装も凄く素敵で、水周りも清潔。広々としたキッチンはフリーフードと調味料も豊富です。 ダウンタウンからはやや離れていますが、郊外に行かずにオーロラ鑑賞をするなら絶好のロケーションです。宿の前でオーロラ鑑賞が出来ます。出掛ける際はフリーレンタルの自転車を利用出来たり、宿の近くにバス停があるので、バスも簡単に利用出来ます。 利便性も抜群ですが、何よりも宿の居心地がとにかく良いです。他の方も書いてる通り、まるでおばあちゃんの家に遊びに行ったような感覚でのんびりと滞在出来ます。ビリーの持つ雰囲気やホスピタリティがそう感じさせるのかもしれません。また愛犬Frankyの存在もワンコ好きにはたまりません。 今までたくさんのホステルに泊まりましたが、私にとってここはその中でもトップクラスの宿です。 This hostel is really cozy and lovely!! Bathrooms are so clean. Shared kitchen has enough equipment and much free food and seasonings. It's not near downtown whereas it's good location to see northern lights if you'd like to see it around downtown. You can see it in front of the hostel. When you go out, you... More

Our stay at Billie's Backpackers Hostel was great. Billie was super nice and accommodating to us. The hostel is super close to airport, it's clean and has a homey feeling. It was fun meeting travelers from all over the world who were were friendly and low maintenance. Highly recommend it for anyone traveling to Fairbanks.

My stay with Billie and everyone was one of my favourite Hostel experiences ever, from the moment i arrived i was welcomed with open arms. The hostel provides everything you can imagine from cosy beds, friendly smiles, hot showers, warm hugs, kitchen facilities with all the equipment and spices you can imagine, cuddles with Franky (pug dog) and they even...

Billie was an excellent host. The two twin room was comfortable and quiet. There were no lock out hours and a full kitchen. At first I was weary about a hostel in someone's house...no regulations and cleanliness. But I was sooo glad we stayed here! It was charming, clean, and had character. I recommend Billie's to anyone!!

My brother and I stayed here for a night on our way to fish in the Brooks range. One of the best hostels I've ever seen in the world. Very clean, super unique, great atmosphere and Billie is amazing. Hope to stay there again sometime.

Stayed here for a night on the way to Gates of the Arctic. The beds & bathroom were clean, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. They even gave me free coffee. I've been to several hostels across the country and this was definitely the best one. I would definitely recommend this to budget-conscious travelers to Fairbanks looking for... More

Great place. Rented private bedroom for 5nights. 13 yr old Granddaughter was with me. She had never stayed in a hostel. She loved it. Billie bakes homemade bread for all almost every day. Coffee all the time. Very quiet, but lots of great people to chat with. Very good location.

This cozy quiet spot is in a nice neighborhood near the university and is a home away from home. She is the sweetest lady and her Hostle is very accommodating. There are rental bikes, laundry, kitchen, free coffee and wifi. Sometimes being on the road can be exhausting and the same sterile cookie cutter hotels can make a traveler weary... More
