“Good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2009

I stayed in a private room which had a double bed with single over the top. There was a chair and small table in the room, 2 hooks on the back of the door and a mirror. When i was there it was daylight for 21 hours a day but the curtains didn't keep any light out. The only supermarket is 1 mile away so bring food with you if you intend to cook for yourself. Apparantly there was some food for sale in reception but when I asked about where to get food I wasn't told about this.

The kitchen was dirty and there were no cloths to dry the dishes so i always looked messy. There was soap provided in the bathrooms but no towels to dry hands on - just needed a few extra things to make it better.

Good value for money compared to all the other hotels in Seward although this is the only hostel in the town.

Stayed June 2009, traveled solo
