At first, I was a little hesitant to stay here mainly because I'd never stayed at a hostel before. Turns out, a hostel under the right person can not only be a great place to sleep, but also an amazing experience in and of itself.
The new owner, Ole, cares about this place and your experience. No longer the run down hostel it was last year, Ole has really given it an overhaul. The rooms are immaculate, if a little small. The common rooms are clean and well kept. The kitchen is decked out with new counter tops, giving you plenty of space to cook any meal on the provided utensils.
The hostel is located in midtown Anchorage, giving a close to anything you need. The neighborhood isnt what you'd call high class, but the people are friendly and hospitable.
If you plan stay here, however, bring a lock to lock your bag up in the locker provided. Be sure to call to confirm your reservation and arrival time to the hostel. Most of all, come with an open mind and a sense of adventure.
