I loved my time at Billie's hostel, it was such a warm and inviting atmosphere to come home to at night. Fairly quiet. So clean, super impressed with the shower. Much nicer than even the hotels I stayed at in Chena Hot Springs. Plenty of parking and an easy going stay. Thanks

Are my 2 dogs allowed?
i am 100% sure the owner who is very helpful is not going to let you with two dogs outside if you come to visit . i still remember she has also a dog and she loves animals; The best is to send her an email and you will have very quickly the answer.
