Property Description

Glacier House Hostel, your home away from home!
Comfortable and economical beds, dorm, tent or treehouse.
Come for the aurora and winter sports, or in summer for light-all-night adventures! This is a great place to stage your Alaskan adventures from, we have plenty of room for your gear, and nearby access to suppliers.
This is the five bedroom house I raised my children in, homey and comfortable and with a spacious back yard. There is a piano and guitar available, a firepit and grill in the yard, and our bookshelf includes an Alaskana section for you to enjoy. We have games and puzzles for you to enjoy while you are waiting for the aurora on a winter evening, or perhaps on one of the porches on a warm light-all-night summer evening. If you are inspired by the local ice art, this is a great place to try creating your own! Weather allowing we keep a few five gallon buckets full frozen and ready for you to play with.

    I stayed my first 2 nights at a different hostel in town, which had higher ratings. But, I was so disappointed with that place during my stay that I cancelled the remainder of my 6-day reservation and came to Glacier House instead. I was so pleased with Glacier House because the bed was significantly more comfortable than the other place, it was clean, and there were nice touches like hand/face towels in the bathroom, and just a better system. It was a savior for my stay in Fairbanks.

    Alex was such a welcoming soul! When I arrived he checked me in and we chatted for about an hour before I finally went to my room and got settled. The place felt very homey and the beds were quite comfortable. Towels were provided for free which was nice and then facilities were kept clean. Would definitely stay here again!

    My brief stay at Glacier house was pleasant and I wished that I could have spent more time at the house. The host, Alex, was polite and friendly. I was impressed in how he got up at 3am when he heard me come through the back door after aurora watching. I also was placed in the bunk room by myself which was great though I think I slept uneasy because I knew the backdoor was not locked and there wasn't a way for me to lock the door to the bunk room. I will most likely stay here again.

    I didn't end up staying for the full time I was there. As a female solo traveler, I didn't feel very comfortable with one of the other guests and the fact that my bedroom door didn't lock and they keep the back door unlocked. Over all, the place was a decent place to stay as far as sleeping and living. The host is also pretty chill.

    Glacier house located 3 miles from airport and down town so inflated Uber prices were $23 US for transport. House overcrowded even though summer travel season not yet started. (We stayed May 24) So two young men were sleeping on reclinige chairs—beds filled. We paid for private room 2 twin beds in advance, but arrived 11pm so they gave us a bunk bed with 3 other people. Bathing & cooking space adequate—but we stayed only one night so did not use them. Next time we’ll stay downtown instead.
