“could have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2010

I must have stayed on an off night. My room and the bathroom both smelled terrible! I had a 2 inch wide mattress on a squeaky, loud, and unstable bunk bed. I woke up every time I rolled over and the frame shook whenever the person below me coughed or moved. However, the staff was very sweet and the common facilities were great, and it's only $10 per night. Beautiful views and location, but a terrible might's sleep, unfortunately.

Unbelievable, this was my first hostel experience, and what a great start. The place is very nice, like being in a upscale house, very clean nice comfy rooms/bunks, the staff was very friendly and efficient. Of the six hostels I stayed in Alaska this and Denali Mountain Morning Hostel were the best. Juneau hostel is right in downtown Juneau, you can walk to everything, if you come on the ferry try to find some folks to split a cab into town with, I rode with 3 other people so we split the fare of $33. The city bus is about a 2 mile walk from the ferry terminal. Just up the street from the hostel are some of the bes hiking trails, just a beautiful area, and did I mention the price $12. wow what a great deal for such a wonderful hostel. This is a must stay for anyone lots of older travelers like me stay here also.

This was one of my first hostel experiences in Alaska and I have to admit, I was impressed.

Great professional service in checking us in. (A group of 6 of us stayed here for 2 nights). Clear definition of morning chores. Very clean rooms, restrooms, kitchen and living room facility.

they had a good washer / dryer which I used.

The price is very inexpensive. I would have loved it if this place was open during the day also (we have to check out every day at 9:00 AM.. as the hostel is closed during the day.. you can check in again at 5:00 PM).. One has to be back in the hostel by I think about 10:00 PM or so..

So I could not enjoy the living room and kitchen as much as I wanted to .

I actually took some pictures of the hostel just to show my wife who would not believe that a hostel can be clean, professional and very reasonably priced.

Stayed August 2007

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
