This is a great spot! I was in Fairbanks to try and catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Billie's is a short walk from a great open spot, perfect for viewing the lights. The hostel was clean and inviting, sort of like staying with family. Billie offered great suggestions on things to do while in Fairbanks, which we used and really feel like we experienced the highlights of the city. She was also kind enough to share some of her family history and experience in Fairbanks. She is a delightful lady who made our visit so much better. Thanks Billie!!!
