A quick rundown - Location is mid town which was about a 45 minute walk to downtown. Was a little away of the action for me. Good base though if it's just a quick set up and get supplies then leave. Wal mart is 5 minutes around the corner so that's handy. The hostel was clean and tidy. It has... More

I stayed for 2 weeks or so and it was the best time in Anchorage. I was is a shared room. It was very clean and nice. Had a few different roommates which was awesome, because everybody tells you a different story about them. It makes your stay even better. The manservant was the nicest guy. If you have the... More

We have stayed here 4 or 5 times before, only over night before driving to our final destination in Homer, Alaska. One couple & one single male. Had a very late arrival flight & after renting our car & getting lost, it was 2:30 am when we got to the hostel. True to his word, the new owner was waiting... More

Agree to most of the reviews. It's just a place to sleep. Stayed there for the first two nights and the last night in Alaska. A good stop to get something you need for your next destination. (Laundry, banking or shopping.) This place was sold to a Korean family. The owner is pretty quiet and still work on the dorm.... More

Stayed in this hostel my first and last night in Alaska. It was a good value as I didn't want to pay a ton of money for a room I would barely use due to later arrivals and early morning flights. Older building and a bit run down but surprisingly very clean. Kitchen and shared bathrooms were practically spotless. Small... More

We are a group of 5 friends (we are all in our 60's) traveling to Homer for 10 days & stayed here one night (7/4/15) to recoup from our flight from Tampa, FL. We have stayed here twice before (just overnight) before heading out to other destinations in Alaska. It is a basic hostel, leave shoes at door, no smoking,... More

Stayed 9 nights during the off season. Owner was informative of the local area, and a Cubs fan which is always nice to see. Had a room to myself due to the slow time so that was nice. Not much else to say, just a place to sleep, eat occasionally and shower. No complaints! Great location. Near Wal-Mart, many shops... More

We had two couples in two private rooms and it was clean and quiet. The proprietor met me when I arrived at midnight and was nice. Shared bathroom was clean. There was a hunting knife stuck upright in the closet shelf which was weird. Kitchen area large and clean. The owner is trying to sell the hostel so that may... More

we were there in the beginning and at the end of our three weeks trip to Alaska. It is definitively the best deal you can find for a hostel in Anchorage. It is basic, but it is clean, quite, well organised and the personnel is flexible, attentive and very helpful. We paid a bit more than 50 euro for a... More
