We stayed in the octogon room. It was nice, clean, and the bed was comfortable.
The other patrons were considerate and friendly (which is nice at a hostel- that would never matter at a hotel). The staff was polite and helpful.
It is close enough to the park but with a few bus options, it would be best if you had a car. There is a wonderful pizza restaurant across the street but the kitchen at the hostel makes it more affordable.
The room was small but let's be honest, if you're hanging out in your room rather than exploring Denali. . .you have a serious problem.
This is the perfect place to stay whether you're visiting Denali National Park or just passing through.
We stayed at a cruise line owned hotel the night before we visited the hostel and I would much rather stay at the hostel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A beautiful setting on a creek. Private cabins, private rooms, hostel beds and wall-tents. 13 miles from the park entrance, but with a free shuttle service. The only way to see Denali on a budget. The hostel is clean, the staff is super-friendly and helpful and we offer discounted prices on local tours and transportation. We are the source for the lowest cost tickets for the Alaska Railroad and sell tickets for The Park Connection Motorcoach. And we offer the lowest prices on nearly all the local tours. We look forward to serving you! ... more less
