We stayed at the Juneau hostel during a holiday travelling up the Inside Passage by ferry and then travelling on to Dawson City. Staying at the Juneau hostel was one of the most enjoyable places to stay during our trip.
There is just one family room at the hostel so book early! It has its own bathroom and 5 beds. The chores are very reasonable and it is great value for money.
The best thing about the hostel is its location which is in downtown Juneau in a lovely residential area.
- 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
