Talkeetna Alaska Hostel International
Reviewed 23 May 2011

A great place to stay around with group of friends. Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere. A nice living room and porch deck to hang out on. Walking distance to the airstrip and Talkeetna Air Taxi. Clean bedrooms, clean bathrooms, well equipped kitchen. Just what you expect from a vacation hostel, that can get you quickly into a vacation mindset. I don't really understand the 2 dissappointed reviewers from July 2010 - must have simply set their expectations wrongly upfront when they booked a hippie Volkwagen bus to sleep in. I liked the place and Holli a lot!

Room Tip: If you expect a clean room, any room is great here

Holli, the owner is wonderful, the hostel is walking distance to everything and a lot of fun. There were other people there too. They have a full kitchen so bring food if you want to cook your own. I stayed in a private room that was nice and clean.

These other reviewers must not know what a Hostel is. It is not a hotel or a B&B. Its a cheap place to stay with warmth, nice hot showers and a community to really know the people and heart of Alaska and other parts of the world. I had a great time here and the Hostel Hostess was amazing! The budget was extremely awesome and the showers, Rooms and people were top notch...Great Experiance...It's a Hostel...save money...live with the real people of Alaska! Marty- Chicago

The pictures on the internet must have been taken when the hostel was new. I found the facility to look run down. Weeds were over grown around the hostel. The volkswagen bus where I had intended to stay smell of mildew and was dirty looking. I was quite disappointed and did not stay there.
