We booked this place in June through hostelbookers.com and was charged 10% ($6) immediately. We called Fairbanks International Hostel a week later to request a date change for our stay. It was agreed without any questions. But when we arrive on 8/16, we were told the "1 Deluxe Private Room for 2" we reserved was non-existent since the hostel "was not able to get any contact with hostelbookers.com".
We were given 2 options: 1) a private room with 2 twin beds at a cost of $90/night, or 2) a tree-house that has to be shared with 2 occupants at a cost of $25/person. We told the guy it is not acceptable and he refused to accomodate any further.
We told him it is not our problem but they refused to accomodate. So we finally asked for our deposite back. It was denied without any hesitation.
So don't even think that tree-house could be your next romantic get-away place. You will have to climb up 2 vertical ladders to get into this tight place without smoke detectors, water or sewer.
Leave Fairbanks as early as you can. AK has much nicer places than this.
