Very pleasantly surprised what a nice place this was to stay in Anchorage and first time we ever stayed in a hostel. Very economical place for for wife as prices of Anchorage lodging quite pricey overall. Management requests you take off your shoes when walking about the property. Common kitchen area, bathrooms and showers very clean and well kept. Choose single room with double bed for my wife and I. Room small but adequate. Very helpful and polite staff. Would stay again.

We reached at around 1am yet Tiffany was very nice and helpful. She spent some time with us answering all our questions and generally being very helpful. The rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were clean and cozy. The walls and floors are thin, so one had to be very quiet after hours.

Hostel is one of the cleanest I've ever stayed in. Well-stocked kitchen, courteous fellow travelers, and removed from downtown so relatively quiet outside. Stayed in a private triple room. Windows didn't have screens so we suffered a few bug bites but not too bad since it was late in the mosquito season. Overall an excellent hostel experience!

I booked a private room with a queen bed and was thrilled with the price. The rooms are a decent size with their own TV, and the very clean bathrooms are just across the hall. There is a large kitchen downstairs where you have total freedom to use as you please. The manager was extremely nice and she gave me a diet coke to settle my stomach as I had gotten sick while flying in. I've stayed in hostels all over the world, and this one was one of the most clean, most quiet, and most comfortable. It is also one of very few options in Anchorage to stay below 100$. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floors, so be prepared for a few stairs.

I stayed 3 nights and was provided a comfortable bed with clean linens. The shared bathroom was kept clean and well maintained. Overall, it was a good experience with welcoming staff and a great value compared to hotel prices in the area.

this is a small hostel which has about 20 rooms, big enough for one or 2 people. some rooms have only beds, others have a bed and a desk with a folding chair. they also have flat screen tvs with about 60 channels and the bathrooms are nearby. i stayed for a week and nights were quiet. it's also in a quiet neighborhood.
the kitchen is very large and very well stocked with kitchenware. free pancake mix, rice and oatmeal are available as well as tons of spices and other food left by previous residents. the bathrooms were always clean. computer is available for use in the office. the owner is making improvements to the rooms such as painting them.
the owner and workers were always friendly and helpful and know the city well.
summer prices in alaska are absurdly expensive, so the rates here were comparatively reasonable.
