This is the nicest hostel I've stay at in Anchorage. Spacious, clean, easy going staff. It's the closest hostel to the Airport, and can be reached by bus for $1.75, or a $7 cab ride. Also, it's closest to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Conveniently, they rent bikes. I certainly enjoyed how friendly the staff was as well as the number of travelers from all over the world. I'd recommend this hostel over any other in Anchorage.
