Smell of smoke in the room
Price; location; good enough, but not for everyone.
It was close to the train depot.
I've stayed at Hostel before so I knew it was going to be bare minimum but this was scary. We were in the "blue" building. The place is just old and not kept up very well. I was afraid to walk on the floors in my bare feet. There was no way I was going to use the shower. There were no towels provided and the floor just gave me the creeps. Words just don't do it justice. It needs to be knocked down and rebuilt. We met up with people in Seward who had also stayed there. One woman was covered in bed bug bites. Her arm had to have minimum 15 bites. I guess when you upgrade to a suite, it come complete with bugs. Bottom line, it was scary and I will be reporting it to the Hostel Association.
good location easy parking value for the money
too much noise beds were terrible, not able to sleep
Cannot think of anything
Dirty, internet poor
Staff great, good coffee in the morning and interesting other travelers.
Kitchen opens not until 8 am in blue building, but great coffee at check in brown building at 06:30am
Cheap and walking distance to the train station. Good price. Comfortable, basic, private room.
The location is prime within easy walking distance of downtown.
Our reservation was not held, even after calling and verifying. Due to circumstances beyond our control we knew we would be late checking in. We called in to see if they would be holding our reservation and they said they would. The person at the desk seemed bothered by our presence, the person that answered the phone was either unaware, or didn't want to tell us the actual situation. When we arrived they didn't have a room. We were told we would have to stay in a four bunk room. I've backpacked in many places and never seen worse accommodations for 28 dollars. The room had an awful stench. If it were any place but Anchorage in the summer I wouldn't expect to pay more than 5-10 dollars for a night in a place like that.
Location was dodgy, staff weren't helpful! Avoid staying here.
I booked a "suite" but was just the usual motel style room, although large.Large fridge and microwave,but no table to eat off. All rooms are different,so check them out first.
Room 201...the bed was awful, could feel the springs,didnt sleep at all.I insisted on changing rooms or get a refund. Room 203 was much better.No towels....take your own. No coffee maker.
location is good; closer to many bars and restaurants; Facilities were okay; Quiet most of the times;
Staff was little less welcoming; WiFi wasn't available in rooms;
informality, free parking, good location - short walk to the heart of the downtown. overall the price was fair. I enjoyed the free upgrade to a suite due to a booking error.
limited communal space - folks did not really hang around to meet other folk - perhaps get ride of the TVs in each room.
Location was great - about 10 mins walk from downtown/main info center. One of the staff was very friendly and helpful (not the one who checked me in). Variety of room types to choose from.
I don't usually write reviews but this was my experience... Not being able to check in until bang on 4pm - this meant that at 4pm everyone comes to check in at the same time. I came back at 4pm but had to wait until 5.30 as there was so many people at once. The person on the desk was very very slow and then told me that she couldn't find my booking but turned out they had entered my name incorrectly despite it being booked online (on checking out the same thing was happening to a couple checking in!). Got to my supposed "deluxe" single room and it was a very good size but was so hot (problem was fixed for building by the next day at least - heating was on full blast). Mattress was pretty beat up but still comfortable. Sheets were old and several holes. Cigarette butt on the wall heater. Fridge in room couldn't be used as the seal was falling off and didn't keep it closed/cool enough. The kitchen (shared with one other room) was a joke. Just a sink and microwave - no utensils or plates at all. These can be borrowed (with deposit I think) from the front desk but there is no brush or soap to clean them up with so what's the point. The shared bathroom was clean enough with soap and paper towels and shower over bath. Shower mixer needed some fixing as was either burning hot or cold. Anchorage is known for its expensive accommodation but having just come off a cruise where I paid $100/night for my oceanview room and all meals, etc (a great deal!), this backpackers room at $60/night was just horrid. I've stayed in hostels for 25 a night that were lovely and included breakfast (M-Montreal). Wifi reception was good in room but I kept getting redirected to lots of spam pages.
Location is fine, near downtown. Probably the cheapest when looking at central location. Some of the staff was helpful and chatty.. That was nice (and the coffee she prepared was also nice!)
Quite ran down facilities and cranky beds. Some of the staff could use some basic customer service training (yes, is a backpackers place... but still clients!)
Close to downtown and cheap
Bed was uncomfortable. Staff not very friendly. Couldn't check till after 4
Bed quality must be improved. Wifi doesn't work at all in other area except at the reception.
it is cheap for students, and comfortable
There's a dive bar around the corner with cheap beer.
Infested with bed bugs and fleas. We brought them back home with us and now face a hefty bill to get rid of them! AVOID!
My friend and I are not picky people in any way and have stayed in hostels before. This was by far the dirtiest and smelliest
Hostel is dingy and dirty and lacks even the most basic facilities and is very overpriced even for Alaska. The staff were also very unhelpful .
Just the location.
This hostel was one of the most dirty hostels that I have been. The bathrooms are OK (like any other hostel) but the room and sheets were disgusting (my wife and I were in a private room). In simple words, they do NOT WASH the sheets and clean the rooms between guests. I stayed there for 5 nights in 3 different rooms. The first room I found a bug in the dirty sheets. The second, I found dirty sheets again and a lot of garbage in the room. The third was a little bit better or, perhaps, I was tired from the long trip. They put a lot of signals explaining that hostels are different of hotels, trying to justify the dirty. Well, I was in several hostels around the world like Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Rio de Janeiro, New York city, Philadelphia, even Minneapolis (and lots of others in small cities). I know very well what a hostel looks like and I'm sure that it is not synonymous of dirty. Also, the staff is not the most cordial guys that I have met. And don't forget to bring your reservation printed since they were not able to find any of my reservations. I recommend to spend few dollars more in better place.
Own twin room. It is an older style hostel and you get what you pay for. Other accommodation in the town was very expensive. We arrived in the middle of the night so were awake to hear the cleaner cleaning the shower rooms thoroughly. Hostellers remember if the bathrooms are not clean it is you who have made them so. Clean up after yourself and show some respect for others.
Kitchen facilities were lacking. There was only one plate, two cups and no bowls that we could find. Adequate pots and pans but nothing to eat from. The sheets were not comfortable . Other than the lack of crockery It did what we wanted to at the time.
Could be a little bit cleaner
