Property Description

Base Camp Anchorage Hostel is run by a community of outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy creating a welcoming atmosphere for travelers visiting Alaska. Our staff love exploring the mountains and we can help you save time and money by sharing unique hikes and places to visit throughout the state. For travelers on a budget, we can help you arrange ride shares, discounts for tours, and low cost transportation options. We also rent outdoor gear like bear spray, tents, and sleeping bags at affordable rates. Our hostel is a short walking distance to grocery stores and outdoor shops like REI. We are easily accessible from the airport by bus or taxi and a short walk from cafe's, restaurants, live music, and one of the best microbreweries in town.

For the safety of our hostel community we are unable to host travelers who are feeling ill.  Please notify staff if you are not feeling well, which includes a sore throat, cough, runny nose, and/or a fever.  We will help you find more suitable accommodation arrangements and access health care in Anchorage.

We have taken steps to keep our hostel clean and safe for guests and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  This includes air purifying systems with UV light throughout the hostel/rooms to clean the air of viruses and bacteria.

We keep our dorm rooms at only 4 beds per dorm to allow you to have a more comfortable and spacious sleeping area. We offer one private room with a queen-sized bed.

Other amenities include:

* Free Coffee & Breakfast (Oatmeal and Pancakes)

Reservations can be canceled free of charge with 48 hours advance notice of your arrival date. After this time, reservations will be charged the first night of your stay using the card on file.

Due to a rising increase of invalid credit cards, If a credit card authorization is marked as Invalid 48 hours before your arrival date, we will email/call you to use a valid credit card. If we do not hear back from you or are unable to process your card with a valid credit card 24 hours prior to your arrival date, your reservation will be canceled.

As a small 25 bed hostel we are often completely booked during the summer and need to turn other travelers away. Guests who do not show up for their reservation with no advanced notice prevent other travelers from staying with us. Please be mindful of your traveling community and reach out to us ahead of time if you are unable to make your reservation.

Check in hours are 4pm to 11 pm. This gives us time to prepare the rooms for our guests. Please keep in mind that our front door is by electronic key code access and no staff is in the lobby from 11pm to 8 am.

If your flight arrives after 11pm, a late check in can be arranged by emailing us prior to your reservation.

Check out before 11 am

Our hostel is tailored for travelers visiting Alaska, we have a maximum stay of 5 nights. Contact us ahead of time if you are visiting Anchorage and would like to stay longer.

Guests must own a major credit card.

Due to the rising number of invalid credit cards for guests that do not show up, the first night of your stay will be charged 48 hours prior to your arrival date. On arrival, you can pay the remainder of your reservation in cash or use your credit card with a $2 processing fee. Group sizes of 5 or more people who pay with a single credit card will have a 3% credit card fee added to their booking.

Breakfast includes organic coffee and do it yourself oatmeal and pancakes.

Maximum Group Size: 8
Our group sizes are now limited to 8 or less people. Unfortunately, as a small 25 bed hostel we are unable to accommodate larger groups as it impacts the hostel's resources and our ability to offer beds to independent travelers.

Great place to start your time in Alaska! Everyone was friendly and had great recommendations. The all female dorm was nice. We kept the window open at night because it was a little hot but the window made it perfect! The chickens are so friendly.
