We have several room types, some private, and some dorms. There are generally no more than 4 persons to a room.

NOTE: we make every effort to seperate the sexes, HOWEVER in the busy summer months the arrangement may be CO-ED.

There are daily shuttles from the hostel to Denali, Anchorage & Whitehorse.

Daily excursions to the ARCTIC CIRCLE, Hot Springs and other local adventures.

Backpacker Hostel is a wonderfully accommodating place from which you can base your Alaska adventure. You won't find a place with a more comfortable friendly atmosphere.

Please Note: We are a small hostel, with no Credit processing at this time. You may use credit to make a reservation (NON-Refundable deposit), but will need cash for the balance upon arrival.
