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.

    GaEllen and Alex are the best! I’ve really enjoyed my stay with very intelligent, intuitive hosts. Living among this international community has been a pure pleasure and very informative. You can not beat the rates for the hospitable atmosphere!

    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!

    Super awesome spot if you’re planning on camping in the yard! Paying the same price to camp in a campground except you receive all the amenities AND wifi, such a deal!

    It was a great hostel. Met few amazing travelers and mostly students from university of Alaska doing their research work. Alex was frenly and accommodating. Only thing is it’s a little far from downtown takes about 30 minutes to walk to wallmart or any major groceries n other shops. Hostel was good for relaxing.
