“Best Alaskan Hostel!!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2008

Brad's place just outside of McCarthy was the best discovery on our Alaskan trip. We stumbled upon this excellent lodge and hostel on our way to McCarthy/Kennicott and were gladly surprised by the condition and coziness of the place. Although we hadn't booked in advance, Brad was able to accomodate us with a pristine private cabin, fully equipped with a queen-sized bed and two singles.
The bathrooms and kitchen are shared, but are very well maintained and always clean. Brad is a brilliant host and always available to chat or share some advice on what to see and do while in the McCarthy / Kennicott area.
I would love to come back to visit the historic towns of McCarthy and Kennicott and would without a doubt, stay here again.
Fantastic place!
