It was very clean, spacious
Very quite, serene environment, the staff are quite friendly, the lavatory was neat
The kitchen was not well maintained
cheap and that's it
bugs in the bed.... dirty, for instance fingernails from previous backpackers still on the floor and the rooms were smelly...
Kitchen was empty - You should ask for everything in the office. The bed was in very bad condition. Towels also were in the office. Looks like slams.
Dark, could do with a paint.
The location, shared kitchen, rabbits, and chickens
Smell of smoke in the room
Price; location; good enough, but not for everyone.
Compared to all other options in Anchorage this place is cheap. But I for one don't like musty, smoke smelling rooms with worn sheets and old pillows. We actually stayed elsewhere and forfeit our full two day annex booking. By all means book there, just don't expect much, if anything.
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.
cheep fee, good location, free parking.
noisy. the wall between room is very thin. We could hear the voice next door clearly. It was too noisy to fall in asleep. And more, the stuff working in hostel had some strong argument in the early morning and daytime. One of the stuff screamed " Shut up!!!", which woke us up.
good location easy parking value for the money
too much noise beds were terrible, not able to sleep
Refund policy not clearly stated. Could not check in until 5 pm. Rooms need better hygiene.
Thought the guy at reception behaved fairly to give us a refund for the night we didn't stay.
Didn't like anything else. When we went to our room, someone else was in it. Went back to reception & was given another room, but to use the word "suite" to describe the "queen suite" is deceptive. It just didn't look clean. There was a rotten apple core in the old fridge; the sofa looked filthy, so much so that we couldn't bring ourselves to sit on it; the pillowcases looked dirty & stained (one looked like it had a footprint on it); the sheets were just weird; the bath looked filthy & there seemed to be a bit of blood in it...honestly, it was just a hole. In fact, when we drove into the car park, there were junkies coming out of one of the rooms across the car park. The surrounding streets seemed pretty dodgy, so we were under the impression this was not a great part of town. And contrary to the property description, there is no wi fi in the rooms. If the price was cheaper for the queen suite with private bathroom and the photos they provided to booking.com more accurately reflected the poor condition of the rooms, at least potential customers could make a more informed decision. As things stand, the photos that make up the room description are deceptive.
This was the worst backpackers hostel i have ever been too and i have been to quite a few in new zealand,australia,canada and usa. The front desk staff were not bad but the cleaning staff were arguing in their language twice in one day wheni was staying there. The bathrooms were ok but not enough and the kitchen in the main annex was not good at all,nothing to cook with apart from one pot i found,no forks! The area the hostel is in is not a good area and two girls i roomed with were followed by druggies/alcoholics! The bedding in the rooms kept coming off the matress and the floor hadnt been vacuumed or mopped in god knows how long! The wifi didnt work in the bunk rooms but did further down the hall. I left after 4 nights and moved to a better Inn in downtown. I felt unsafe the whole time!
Room was not made up when we arrived and it was well after midnight and two lights were burnt out and the room key did not work. The room was filthy and smelt disgusting. We were given another room which was not much better, the toilet ran all night and it smelt bad. We were staying in the most expensive rooms with a private bathroom and they were nothing like the photos and this place is a complete rip off. We paid for 3nights upfront and they would not give us a refund after we checked out early because of how bad it was. Seriously do not stay there. The staff were rude and dismissive. Honestly it is the worst place I have ever stayed at and advise people to avoid it. The wifi was weak.
The location is central and close to downtown.
I made a reservation for this hostel through booking.com and it was confirmed. However, when two months later I arrived to the hostel, they did not have my reservation in the system. They did received it, they said, but messed up and failed to put it into their system. The outcome? They did not have a room for me for my whole stay. Therefore they had to put me into one room and I was told to move to another room the following day. Plus sorry, no towels, come back tomorrow. What? Also, a "delux single" is not so single - although you have your own room, you still share bathroom with others. The rooms are very basic. My first room was filthy and smelly. The next room I moved to was better. Equipped with a fridge and an old TV - so that was good. Wifi in the hostel did not work at all. You had to come to the lobby to get connected. In the end they did not charge me one of the four nights I stayed, so I took that as an apology. However, would not stay here again.
Cannot think of anything
Dirty, internet poor
We paid $130 US for a 'Deluxe Suite' which was anything but deluxe. When we walked into our room, there was a used drugs needle, and cigarette buts in our rubbish bin in the lounge. The place was dirty, run down, scruffy old sheets on the bed, although there was a kitchen in the room, not a cup or plate in sight. We could not get wifi in our room as advertised. We could not wait to get out of there. Pay extra and go anywhere else!
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;
