From the 4 days my husband and I stayed at Spenard Hostel, we received a warm welcome and enjoyed a very friendly atmosphere. We got to know people from all over the world who were just as eager about traveling Alaska as we were! The managers at Spenard were helpful in telling us about attractions around the area as well as loaning out travel books such as "The Mile Post." Spenard Hostel is also in a great location, close to the airport and downtown. The only downside to Spenard (and any shared rooming experience) is the potential for snorers. Ear plugs would have been a great idea!
