We found this hostel perfect for our sea kayak trip to Juneau. Really reasonable price plus you do one chore which is very easy. The hostel was very clean and comfortable. The policies of no alcohol and a 11pm curfew made it very safe and quiet unlike some hostels I've stayed in. There was a mix of single travelers and families. Hostel atmosphere totally depends on who is staying and we found it to be filled with nice people. It is located up a big hill so I rented a car because we had big duffels of camping gear and a car is nice to explore the valley. We also walked to town most times so it's a reasonable walk downtown. The women at the reception desk were helpful. Overall, we enjoyed the 3 days we stayed there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Juneau Hostel is a non-profit, volunteer-run, public service to provide affordable accommodation for travelers and the families from the outlying communities of Southeast Alaska. Because we are volunteer-run, we have day jobs, which is why we have the 9-5 lock-out, and which is why we are particular about everybody leaving at 9. We have to go to work. The 11 pm curfew ensures quiet, safe, family-oriented accommodation. The gender segregated dorm rooms have no more than 8 beds in the largest room. Yes, the beds are uncomfortable, but you won’t find cleaner or safer accommodations anywhere in the world. In addition, we provide linens, towels, wifi, unlimited hot water, a kitchen and comfortable common area and coin-operated laundry facilities. We are open 350 days a year and the managers live onsite with children. ... more less
