Its huge property in the middle of town provides our guests with an outdoor feel that's hard to find in Fairbanks.

    Sven’s base camp was an excellent hostel. It was a good location to walk or grab a ride to anywhere around Fairbanks. Close to the airport and train station. Atmosphere was excellent, everyone was very friendly and happy. I stayed in the female dorm room “moose” and it was very well heated, comfortable bed. Sleeping bags, sheets, and towels provided. USB and lamp at every bed. Everything was very clean. Laundry can even be done for you at a small fee if needed. Will definitely be back!

    Amazing experience, I will remember this spot for sure. The staff were all pretty rad, the wind was high during my stay and they promptly cleared away the trees. I stayed in one of the two treehouses. the atmosphere here is unparalleled. I'd come back to Fairbanks just to stay here again. I also met a bunch of Really great people. Seriously one of the most fun hostel experiences I've had during my travels.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sven's HomeBase hostel. Sven is very welcoming and attentive to every need and inspires his employees to do the same. The setting is beautiful because Sven takes great care with flowers and landscaping. This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in.

    I enjoyed my stay. The location was very close to the airport and to the university campus. There wasn’t much to offer and I was a bit disappointed that the bikes were not available. The cabin was very clean and comfy.

    Not exactly recommended during the cold months, but they do have propane heaters that work well. Amazing place!

    Sven's Basecamp is unlike any hostel I've stayed at before. It genuinely feels like your home away from home. The owner and staff (including Heidi the dog) are personable and provide great suggestions for day trips and things to do in the area. If you're looking for a low-cost place to stay with basic amenities and no frills, look no further.

    Place is a really good one, with lots of privacy and nature.The Staff were not experienced for Hospitality Industry at all. The Guests should always be Number One Priority but here the European Untrained Interns were disaster. On July 03, 2022 (prior to US Independence Day) evening, I noticed the Staff Occupy the Table infront of the Cafe and opening alcoholic bottles and wine, having a Good Time. While, Guest were sitting in their tents and watching the Staff. This is a poor business model.
