Talkeetna Alaska Hostel International
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This hostel is rad and Kathrin is awesome! She even helped us book a second night in the hostel last minute when we changed our travel plans to come back to stay in Talkeetna another night. We stayed in VW vans and they were super clean, cozy, and comfortable. Plus there was a magical Jimi Hendrix blacklight poster on the ceiling. We can't wait to come back!

If you are looking for a place to stay in Talkeetna, look no further!!! Kathrine and Shane promote an awesomely homey atmosphere, where no matter how long you stay, you feel like family. This is my second year visiting the hostel, and I would highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for a comfortable place to stay in Talkeetna. As a climber it is nice to have some good outdoor space to dry, sort, and pack gear for trips into the range.

This is a great little hostel in a great little town! You can have a few beers out back in the evening and the owner Catherine even gave me a lift to the bus station when I was leaving. Would definitely recommend it!

Holly was wonderful when we were there. We stayed only for a night, but the place felt like home. Holly even went out of the way to try to make our room with 6 bunkbeds into a private room for the two of us by adjusting people in other rooms.
Highly recommended.

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.
