    For a hostel and for the price we paid this was a great choice. Accommodations were a bit cramped and we weren’t offered a place to lock up anything, but everyone was very friendly and courteous and quiet. Pug puppy was an adorable added bonus. I would stay here again.

    Billie is a big kind heart of a person who loves and cares for her community, her guests, her home. Staying here introduces you to the real Fairbanks. Bikes and buses make it easy to get around town.

    Billie's is the best hostel I've been too. Billie and her son Arthur are super helpful and friendly, so I felt like home. Also Billie and Arthur love doing things the old-fashioned way, so the best way to check availability and book rooms/beds is to call them directly!

    SUCH a cute place! Loved sleeping in the outdoor gazebo dorm! It was really nice to have the fountain nearby to cover any road noise or talking. Also, very yummy coffee in the morning!

    Had a really great time at Billie's! It was so helpful that they let us use their bikes to ride around the city and explore! They also let us use some bear spray that previous travelers had bought and left behind. We didn't end up needing it, so we left it for the next traveler along with some propane for a camping stove. The staff was willing to help us in any way they could, which helped us to have the best time in Fairbanks and Denali.
