I have stayed in almost all the hostels in Alaska. But this one is special. The owners, Janilyn and Gary are friendly, kind and simply awesome! I also met some very interesting travelers who are open to sharing their travel experiences and made my short time in Skagway memorable. The hostel is cosy and almost homely. It is also very clean, quiet, professionally maintained, and rich in character. Its only a short walk from the Alaska Marine highway terminal, downtown shops and eateries and close to the trailheads if one is planning on hiking the great Alaskan outdoors in SE Alaska. Its a great value for money as well as for experience. I wish I could spend few more days there.
