This was my FIRST stay EVER in a hostel...and I LOVED IT!! My room was simple...but the TV was great...bed was AWESOME (I had a private room)...the bathroom was fine. Granted it is not a 5 star hotel...but that wasn't what I wanted/needed...I will definitely consider staying here again on my next trip to Alaska!!

Fabulous, quiet, super clean hostel. It was like a home away from home. Close to a big supermarket, 30minute walk from town. Amazing prize, would 100% recommend.

We only stayed there a few hours, because we needed some accomodation close to the airport. Staff was very helpul in helping us find a restaurant nearby and making a reservation for a taxito the airport. It duly arrived at 4 AM !

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! We appreciate it.


When we raised concerns about the easily accessible windows in all of the rooms not locking (or even closing properly) the owner did not think this was a problem. Otherwise he was very pleasant and helpful and the facilities were very good. If you're worried about security look elsewhere, but if you're not worried it might be your best option in Anchorage.


Nice place, very clean and confortable. You would have to walk a little bit to downtown (about 20min walking), but its a good deal for the price. Staff is really good, always looking for guests well being and helped us a lot with directions and tips. Its kind of close to Walmart (5-10 min), which makes a good combination with the nice kitchen the hostel has.

Comfortable and very clean hostel. The private double was good value for money compared to the rest of Anchorage. It's pretty far from downtown (34th street, compared to 1st-8th streets having most of the action), but there are some good eating options within walking distance. There wasn't much going on there when we stayed. It's a good place to sleep for the night, but I wouldn't recommend it as a place to meet others and hang out. I would stay again if in need of a bed.
