Property Description

Billie's Backpackers Hostel (Alaskahostel.com) is Alaska's longest operating hostel. We are a family run Hostel - born and raised in Fairbanks. Billie's is a wonderfully warm, welcoming and accommodating place. The perfect place to begin your adventure in Interior Alaska.

Open YEAR-ROUND, Billie's is the perfect place to explore interior Alaska, view the northern lights or soak up the Midnight Sun.
Located in a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance of the Main Campus of the University of Alaska, there are many local shops and eateries including the Tanana Valley Farmers Market, a pizzeria, ice cream shop and more.

ALL shared rooms are Co-Ed. Billie will make every effort to separate the sexes, HOWEVER during the busy months the arrangement may be CO-ED. All travelers share bathrooms and common areas like the kitchen, dining spaces and hostel grounds.

Billie does have a few private rooms, and allows for some long-term stays, tent space and some other unique accommodations. Contact Billie directly to inquire about these.

The city bus is one block away, allowing you easy access in and around Fairbanks and North Pole. Bikes are usually available to use, just ask Billie. We are a main stop for shuttles that operates between Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage, the Yukon. and Arctic Circle/Prudhoe Bay tours. Most taxi and shuttle drivers and city bus drivers know us: just ask them let you off at Billie's

First solo trip to another state, felt completely safe. Billie is great. Bus stop is down the street. The bus does not run on the weekends, so if you didn’t rent a car you’ll have to Uber everywhere. You get to meet people from around the world. Pretty exciting, will definitely book a stay here on my next adventure to Fairbanks.
