Hi, I have a question about youth hostels around Denali...

Hi, does anyone know any cheap youth hostels(less than 90$ a night-peak rate) around Denali Park? I would be grateful if someone could also tell me where we(2 people) would need to stay in order to arrive at one of the following places on time!

6:10 AM depart Denali Cedars Lodge, return 7:00 PM

6:10 AM depart Denali River Cabins, return 7:00 PM

6:30 AM depart Denali Bluffs Hotel, return 7:00 PM

6:40 AM depart McKinley Chalet Resort, return 7:00 PM

6:45 AM depart Denali Princess Lodge, return 7:00 PM

- We plan to take the Kantishna Wilderness Tour, and the times are as shown above.

P.S: Would it be better to just take the shuttle instead of the tour? Because in that case, we wouldn't need to find a room so close to the park entrance!

thanks!

I don't know of any youth hostels around the park. Yes, it is better to take the shuttle.

Hello! There is a hostel in the Park area now, down near Carlo Creek. They offer free shuttle service, so that should take care of your problem. Here is their website: http://www.hostelalaska.com There are also a few very good restaurants in that area, too. McKinley Creekside cafe, the Perch, and Panarama Pizza.

Yes, I would take the shuttle bus into the park - it's great!

If you need any more specific, just let us know! :)

You should stay at Mountain Morning Hostel, that is the one right by Carlo Creek I stayed there for over three weeks and its a perfect cheap place to stay, there isn't any place even close to this cheap around Denali. There is food and a bar nearby so you'll meet locals and be swept into their culture quickly. Have fun.
