Very helpful staff, interesting guests and excellent price. We stayed here two days before moving on to Eagle and Dawson City. Bikes are available if you want. The location is a short drive or bike ride to Safeway and Fred Meyer stores. The community kitchen is comfortable and watched over. We will definitely be back! Sven also has a dog mushing business in Bettles, Alaska that is a popular addition to a trip to see the Northern Lights. Thanks Sven & Rachel!!

Room Tip: Whatever you want is here, tent camping, Teepee or a cabin.

Very clean hostel, clean showers and toilets, nice bedrooms.
I spent 5 days there and had so much fun. Badminton, Volleyball, free wi-fi and loadsof great people. I do recommend this hostel. Google pictures of that and you will see its like a small paradise island within the city.

Room Tip: If you are on budget take a tent space, but if you want to spent just a little more take a Tipi tent. Thats amazing

We stayed here on our way to Prudhoe Bay and back. The host and the staff are outstandingly helpful and made us feel very welcome. Everyone there is bilingual with German and English. The cabins are comfortable, but only some have double beds. The curtains in our cabin closed well so even in midsummernight you can get a good nights sleep. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. Showers are coin operated but are working well.

Room Tip: This is a motorcycle friendly place, parking is available on site, and you are bound to meet fellow travellers.

Excellent place to stay in Fairbanks. Very friendly and supportive staff. Sven's Swiss but very experienced in adventurous Alaska. Stayed in a Cabin which was worth the money (60$), other and cheaper possibilities avialable. Great and clean kitchen facilities and hot shower (0.25 $ per minute)
