Zero star , a bed bug woke me up at 4 am crawling on my leg , when I told the manager in the morning he said I brought it in from the lodge where I stayed before , when I said no to him I didn't bring bed bugs here. He started raising his voice at me and telling it's impossible to have them here but continued saying I brought them there , this was after 4 days of paying my 2nd month rent $600 gone no refund I left this hostel cuz the manager was disrespectful me , the owner of this place wouldn't even look at u or say hi , this place is dirty specially the bathroom skin shedding always on toilet seat . You are not allowed to eat in your room like normal hostels and no shoes inside .
If you pay with credit card they hand write ur credit card number and save it after they swipe it .
The manager s mission is to make the tenants homeless just takes their money . He gave refund to someone people in the past but not me , he also talks crap about landlord and his female coworker .
I booked a private room for a week which was close to $450. Does not come with a private bathroom or a sink or fridge in the room. The place is clean and there’s a desk in the room and closet space however given the price can’t say I’d recommend it. They don’t offer free food or put on social events for the guests, however I like to support small family owned businesses so I get it, they gotta charge more during the high season. They don’t offer cash discounts or weekly rates either atleast not when I was there.
I arrived late so instructions for getting in were very clear. However, the room I shared with 3 other women smelled heavily of bug spray. There was a fan on to keep the room cool (good) and the bathroom was relatively close by. It was clean enough for a shared bathroom - I decided not to risk a shower because it appeared to be held together with duct tape. This place fit my budget but I'll look for another place to stay the next time I'm traveling through Anchorage.
Not particularly memorable, small but functional room, the bathrooms weren't in the greatest condition and a bit lackluster but honestly, for the price it was decent. Kitchen is pretty huge and well-equipped. It is in what felt like a sketchy part of town though, so not exactly the most pleasant to walk around
My husband and I booked a private room on both the first night in Alaska and the last night in Alaska. Checking in both times was fine- the worker happened to hear us drive up both times and came and opened the door. There was some confusion about the cost we had to pay as I booked through hotels.com- however we ended up being charged about what I expected after showing my paperwork.
The room was small, but the bed was comfortable. There was a TV in the room and a small closet.
The shared bathroom was close to access and never had any issues with it being busy. The shower wasn't clean, but I think that was more due to users not cleaning up after themselves, probably between cleans.
There is a no shoes rule in the hostel, also no alcohol and no food in the rooms.
The kitchen is huge and well stocked. Including multiple fridges and a freezer.
As we had a rental car the location worked fine for us. There wasn't really a "hang out area" , as only met others in the kitchen area.
Wifi was good and quick.
It was good value for expensive Alaska and would stay again for a night if passing through the area again.
