This is a very nice and homely hostel. I was looking for somewhere quiet, where I could switch off and that was the perfect place. Cho is very kind and helpful! Downtown is within 10-15 min walking distance. The library is only 5min away. Ask Cho about Arctic Circle and Hot Spring tours!


Great hostel. Cho was very helpful with everything I needed at the hostel. Everything was very clean. The house is a bit small, but it makes it easy to get know everyone staying there. Fairbanks is really spread out, but you can walk from the hostel to the downtown area and the visitors center.


This hostel has the potential to being great. However, it gets no cleaning. Rugs filthy. Dust everywhere. Has not been given a cleaning in a long time. During the 20 hours I was there, I only saw the owner leave his room to smokeor to collect money from arrivals. On the positive, he did offer laundry service for $5 a load. He did have a PC for patrons use. Also, when I sent $10, he mailed a shirt I had left. Suggest he offer a free bunk for 4 hours of cleaning.


The owner of the hostel is amazing - super friendly, really takes care of his guests and keeps the place super clean. I can absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone!


Definitely recommend staying here!


When I go to a hostel I expect just hot water and a decent bathroom. Two of the three showers I took there were with cold water. The bathroom was shared between 6 guests and for three days it was never cleaned. The floor was covered with hair, the sink with tooth paste and soap, the trash bin (which contained also used toilette paper) was never emptied and you don't want to know about the toilette. Overall the hostel was very dirty (kitchen, common areas, floors) and the guy was never cleaning.


Hands-down, this is the quietest hostel I've ever stayed it. Compliments to Cho for making us feel like a guest in his home and for the clean and respectful travelers who stay there. It's 5 miles from the airport, so if that's how you arrive, it's 2 bus trips (limited schedule, no Sundays) or a $20 cab ride with tip. A great location in between downtown and the amenities on Airport Way. Wonderful, older neighborhood.
