I had a lovely time staying at Billie’s Backpackers Hostel. It’s a very welcoming, clean and comfortable place to stay. I felt very safe as a single female traveler staying there. Billie is truly a lovely host. There was a small mixup where I had requested a lower bunk, but she didn’t have any left when I arrived so instead she set me up in a room of my own- an extra treat! She was very accommodating and I enjoyed checking in with her about my night and day excursions. It seems like everyone knows Billie! Nearly every tour I went on, when they found out I was staying at Billie’s, said how wonderful she and her hostel is and I couldn’t agree more!

We had a wonderful stay at Billie's backpacker for two weeks in August 2020 helping our daughter relocate. Good location near Gluten Free Café and bus stop. Quiet at night, helpful staff, good facilities and nice kitchen. We had an en-suite apartment with nice balcony and really enjoyed our stay and visiting with other guests. Would definitely book again if visiting Fairbanks.

Billie was a wonderful host! I stayed inside the house and was overall very clean. She was very accomodating and kind. Fresh coffee every morning was nice and easy to get around via the bus stop a block away. Only issue I ran into was another guest eating my food so make it VERY clear that it is your food. Other than that, it was wonderful! Hand sanitizer was everywhere for guests to stay clean and she cleaned inside very often.

The place is friendly and warm. It really felt like a home more than a hostel. The lady who runs it is awesome. Good free coffee too. If you decide to take a walk around the neighborhood, it’s really pretty.

My husband and I love staying at Billies Backpacker Hostel. We have been repeat customers for the past eight years. We love the clean and quiet ambiance, the love and hospitality that the owner Billie gives to all her visitors. I have stayed in many hostels around the world including England, Israel and Egypt and I can tell you that Billies Hostel is one of the finest and cleanest hostels I have ever stayed it. If you choose to stay here you will be truly blessed and will want to come back again and again! Best place to stay if visiting Fairbanks. Jeanie and Jack Lombard Hostel Goers and Golden Retriever Lovers!
