We are a hostel (not a full service hotel) that  offers discounted accomodations in Downtown Anchorage . We offer the best value for your money in a clean, safe, fun and sociable environment.

Save money to go on tours, backpacking, hiking, or whatever works for you!!! This is the perfect place to start your Alaskan Adventure!! 

For those who don’t know or are not very familiar with what a hostel is click HERE or go to our website menu under WHAT IS A HOSTEL!! to find the definition of what a hostel is and the differences between hostels and hotels.

If your goal is to save money and have a place to lay your head at night without spending $200 to $400 a night in a regular hotel, we are the place to go. If you are looking for a higher level of service and a more formal atmosphere  then hostelling is not the way  for you to travel and you should look for a hotel. Alaska is not a cheap place in the summer and everything goes up in price such as tours, transportation, housing and dining.
