    Super great hostel in Fairbanks. Very clean, good space, comfy beds and close to bus lines. In my 5-night stay I met interesting people and had wonderful time. Billie is very kind and friendly, she let me stay and use the facilities to late night long after my check out time. I would highly recommend!

    Billie’s hostel was one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at! Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Billie really goes above and beyond to make sure the guests have a great experience. Her son Art offered to drop me off in downtown Fairbanks when I asked her about the bus schedule. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Fairbanks!

    This place was a nice treat, many regulars stay on the premises, which has its pros and cons. I will say it is best to contact the owners directly to get a specific reservation. I reserved the room with the patio and when I got there was offered a standard 4 bed dorm or the Gazebo, I chose the latter. Wifi was fast and reliable, shower water was hot, bed was comfortable. Well stocked bathroom. Would recommend

    Fantastic Hostel. Met a ton of fun travelers, and the regular neighborhood characters who spend their time hanging out there are filled with great stories and advice.

    Absolutely loved this hostel! I have stayed in a lot of places and hostels, and this definitely ranks high on my list. Billie and her sons are wonderful and always around to help, the community area is comfortable and the hostel is just the right amount of social. We stayed an extra night and will surely be back when we pass through Fairbanks again!

    Billie was a sweetheart. Met great travelers along the way! Would recommend, bus route nearby is convenient. Not many Uber’s available, try to get a rental or download the Turo app.

    Based on the pictures of Billie’s, my friend and I were pretty thrown when we were led to an outdoor gazebo with walls/ceiling made of glass (not pictured on the website. Both of us had a horrible night out there. Aside from the physical walls, there was no insulation. We were provided with multiple blankets, but all of them were old and stained. It was mid 40s and rained all night and my blankets kept falling to the floor and getting wet. The owners were nice, but I wish I had known in advance
