Room was comfortable, warm and met our expectations. The owners and staff were extremely helpful and a pleasure to talk to. Location was excellent, within walking distance (for us that is measured in Km) of everything we needed to see. My wife and son walked up to the Midnight Dome and considered it well worth the effort. We visited the...

The bed is really good. We had a double bed. We stayed there for 4 nights. The staff are amazing. They are super helpful. There is free good coffee and bottles of water. The place is very clean. We would love to stay there again.

I recommend this place if you want to stay in Dawson. The staff was very friendly and gave us lots of tips as per where to go. We stayed two nights there. I had an issue with a tire of my motorcycle and everyone was very helpful. They connected me with some locals and even lent me a pick up...

We came to Dawson city without a reservation, all the hotels were full due to some events. We had to ask help at visitor center and were sent to this hostel style Bunkhouse. The room is very small with two single bed, but very clean. The shared bathroom and shower room are also very clean. The best part is the...

Basic, but very clean accommodation in the middle of the lovely town that time forgot. The room is small, but very clean and fresh. The new owner has done a great job renovating. The showers and toilets are separate and shared but with individual cubicles, as the price is quite moderate I didn't mind at all. Highly recommended.

Great place to stay for a few days in Dawson. Close to all the interesting places in Town. There are also picnic table in the lawn, a BBQ can be borrowed. The rooms are simply furnished but are comfortable and very clean.

Good value. It is a backpacker-style place, with simply-furnished, small, but clean and comfortable rooms. The showers and bathrooms were very clean. People walking on the wooden balconies and in the street can be noisy, especially after bars close, so if you are looking for tranquility, best to choose a hotel. If you are looking to meet people and have...

The room was small but clean and quiet with a view of the river. I think this place is pretty over priced for a very small room with no wash room or shower at the cost of 90 dollars for one night They are both outside of the room and are shared with other guest.. it is a nice place...

I stayed at the Bunkhouse for 3 weeks in the spring. My room was clean and tidy, and furnished with lovely hardwood furniture. The staff was very helpful and friendly. And the location was right in the heart of the city, close to everything I needed. And all that at the best rates you can find anywhere in the city!...

“The suites with private baths are a good value. For the other rooms, be sure you bring shower clogs for the shared baths. Also, ear plugs are a good idea.”
