So I arrived at the Hostel last night around 1030pm. Just a short cab ride over from the airport on the snowy, icy streets of anchorage. You have to love a place like this, very nice artwork on the outside of the building, walk inside to the sounds of RadioHead being played in the office. A very nice gal got me checked in and showed me around the building. They have free WiFi to use, about 5 bunk rooms both male and female and one Co-Ed. Two big living rooms to hang out in with computers if you dont have a laptop. Two nice big kitchens to use, and all the free coffee and tea you can drink. On weds nights they have a potluck dinner you can throw down on. I missed it but was offered some leftovers. Very clean rooms that didn't smell. Clean bathrooms with hot water. Lot's of books on Alaska and pictures from all over. And the people here are great, I have spent the morning sitting and talking with a few folks from all over, one gal is here from england, another guy from LA, a couple from Korea and a few locals as well. I just love being able to sit and talk to fellow travelers rather than just being stuck in a hotel with myself and nothing else. It truly is my favorite kind of place to stay while traveling. So I highly recommend that you check them out if you are traveling on your own and looking for a great place to stay while in Anchorage.
