Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

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.

Green Turtle, across from the fish market in Seattle, is just about the same. I listened to a gal to had composed a song that day & then sang it at open mike with no instrumentation. She was amazing... hosteling makes a whole lot more sense that an expensive hotel room.

Congrats AlaskaBound. I'm jealous. I think of Alaska as Montana on Steroids. Soak it up and tell us all about it. Is this where you are?

I plan to through-out the summer...the folks that own this one also have one up in Denali. So that will be where I stay when I head up there. They say it is nicer than this one, so it must be pretty nice.

That hostel sounds classy.
I almost purchased a book about the best hostels to stay at in the states.
But who needs the book when you gave an amazing review.
Now... you should go to all the other hostels in Anchorage and let me know what you think.
