My husband and I stayed for a night. What a cool unique idea! I applaud the woman for the captain and sea theme, the cute messages! The place is just full of character. Our hut, wolfs den, had 3 sleeping places, was very cozy and fun! The entire place is very clean. There is butter to make breakfast and options... More

I am confused about this place... Let me explain i was there when the tourist season just started, so had the place to myself which was great. I had the whole hostel to myself . I could sleep whichever bed fancied my imagination and no line up at the counter on the breakfast table. Seemed almost idyllic. It's got that... More

I stayed here 2 nights, after my experience of sleeping in female dorm rooms, I found a private room for 150$ in Nauti otter inn, which is actually a combination of private rooms, hostelling-style dorm room with beds, and some cabins in the backyard. The room was very cute and very nicely set. PROS: There is a PIANO!! Although I... More

This place is just different and unique. I had a great time staying there and loved the rooms, the clean bathroom, the shared living room and kitchen, and mostly the back yard. The owner is the most nice person I met, and she does everything possible for her guests. It maybe a little far from town, but the bus stop... More

I have to ask...How does this place receive a higher rating than a REAL hotel or lodge in the same area?!?! We literally slept in a shed and paid $200+!!! This place is good for 18-29 yr olds or if all the other places in the area are booked and you need a quick place to sleep. The only good... More

We came for 2 nights and stayed for 8! Heather and her crew had suggestions for us that truly made our entire trip. From helicopter, to fishing, zip line, whale watching, glacier hike, floated the Kenai and hiked the locale trails of the Russian River. It was an amazing time. We thought it was a once in a life time... More

I travel solo a lot and am always looking for that magical combination of a hostel-like social vibe where I can still have a private room. The Nauti Otter met those criteria perfectly. Heather is a lovely soul and creates a welcoming social environment. She was also extremely helpful organizing tours/activities/etc. My only constructive feedback is the bathroom situation is...

I'm working a summer job about an hour north of town. I decided to stay here on a whim and it was a perfect and quaint experience. Clean and friendly. Heather the groundskeeper is very nice. Plus comfy beds and a very clean hot shower. I definitely plan on staying here throughout the season whenever I need a nice getaway

The Nauti Otter is a fun place to stay instead of a regular hotel. My cousin and I had booked the Rough cut cabin and upon arrival were upgraded to the Hump back with two beds that were super comfortable. It was a great stay and we appreciated the upgrade!!

Stayed at the Nauti Otter this summer and had a blast! Great location for getting to the Exit Glacier and other activities! Had a blast with the owner, and they have an awesome cat there! I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in Seward.
