Property Description

Billie's Backpackers Hostel is Fairbanks' longest running, friendliest hostel. In operation since 1991, we are a family-run, home hostel.

Open YEAR-ROUND and with NO CURFEW, Billie’s is the perfect place to relax; to mingle with other world travelers; to use as a start or end point for your Alaskan adventure; or to simply linger and enjoy our midnight sun of Summer or our northern lights of Winter.

Primarily, we offer dormitory beds –with usually no more than 4 people to a room. Most of our dorm beds are in the main part of our home. Our glass Gazebo dorm is available only during the summer (no heating) and it can accommodate up to 6 people. Gazebo guests must walk the few steps to the house to use the kitchen and main common area.

We make every effort to separate the sexes, but during our busy summer months the arrangement may be CO-ED. All guests share bathrooms and common areas like our kitchen, dining spaces and hostel grounds.

We also offer private rooms, long-term stays, tent space and some other unique accommodations. Contact Billie directly to inquire about these.

Billie’s is ideally located within walking distance of the University of Alaska main campus, many shops, pubs, restaurants, bike trails and much more. After a short taxi ride from the airport or the train terminal, once here you can easily get around Fairbanks with access provided by our city bus – which stops just one block away from the hostel. We are also the main stop for shuttles that run from and between Fairbanks and Anchorage, Denali, Yukon and Arctic Circle/Prudhoe Bay. Most taxi and shuttle drivers know us: just ask them let you off at Billie’s! (See our website for more information on transportation.)

When you stay with us, we will provide you with:

•Free Linens
•Free WI-FI access
•Free Bike use with locks (when available and at own risk)

If you are contacted by the property for the CVV code and you do not provide it to them within 24 hours, the property has the right to cancel your reservation. In that case, payments, such as the deposit, are non-refundable.

We are open 24 hours a day and we accept CHECK-IN at any time; however, if you are planning to check-in between the hours 0:00AM and 7:00AM, please ensure that you have booked the previous day as your arrival date. -- and that you adjust your check-out date accordingly.
We do not have a set time for CHECK-OUT. If you have a late night departure, you are free to remain at the hostel until you need to leave (for the airport, for example). If we need your bed for another guest coming in, we will ask you to vacate it in time to prepare it for its new occupant. You may may use the time to do some last-minute sight-seeing, shopping, etc. You may store your luggage with us for FREE.

This is a hostel setting. All areas (except private rooms) are shared with other travelers. Please observe quiet time in the sleeping area; please clean up after yourselves (wash your dishes, do not leave food out, throw away your trash, etc.) -- and respect others’ space and property.

    This was a cozy place to stay because it is a house (and not a typical hostel building). It was very clean and that includes the flooring because shoes are to be removed before going into the main accommodation area. For me, there is nothing like clean floors & clean bath rooms and this place has both. Billie is very nice and even the fellow travelers were cool. This was just a memorable place for me.
