I've stayed at the Arctic Adventure hostel several times and I'm definitely a fan - it's my go-to first choice when in Anchorage. First and foremost....they don't smell. Seriously, that's one of the biggest downsides of hostels (or at least all the places I've stayed to date): the bathrooms always have this unwashed funk, even if they're clean. Arctic Adventure...

The Arctic Adventure Hostel is a very well run place. Joseph and Tiffany who run this place work their socks off keeping at clean and tidy, even providing a cooked breakfast!!! What hostel does that!

This review highlights the difficulty in running a hostel in Alaska in the winter. Because of the lack of tourism you get mostly longer term people that are moving here or between jobs, etc. In this case you have 2 deadbeats that could not find a job and choose to get drunk and wake the entire 3rd floor. If someone...

We stayed there just one night. The price is good but the room isn't very clean. And the wall is very thin so It's so noisy in the morning (from 5am) that we couldn't sleep anymore.

We wanted an affordable room for our last two nights in Anchorage and the Arctic Adventure Hostel was perfect. Double bed in a private room for $50 a night and a clean bathroom and kitchen. It is in a quiet, nice part of town with a friendly staff. Also, there is a convenience Store and REI, bookstore, etc within walking...

A clean and welcoming place, with a nice lounge and free internet, with towels provided. I've never heard of a hostel providing a double bed and big TV for us! Tiffany worked hard to make us welcome - one of the most helpful we've met. Despite the website not mentioning it, each morning she cooked a great breakfast, and still...

I stayed at the hostel for 3 nights in August. I arrived at 1:50am and tiffany was great- she was there to great me. Room was very clean as well as bathrooms.

We were there for one night in a private room as we zipped though Alaska for a week. In one night we were left with an awesome impression. The place is very clean and the caretaker works very hard keeping it that way. I have never had it before, but the breakfast in the morning in a hostel is a...

We stayed here in 2008 and our review from then (http://bit.ly/omm9OY) is still accurate, although the owner (Indiana native, Army veteran, Cubs fan, nice guy!) has put a lot of elbow grease into the place over the past few years, making it aesthetically nicer than last time. Our room had a double bed, ceiling fan, and cable TV, with bathroom...

Spent a night here. The room was fine. Bathroom is clean. I like the fact that they actually provide some hot kind of hot breakfast, nothing fancy, but hot. If you are single or just two of you, for less than $30 per person, it's a good value.

“Rooms on the top floor is better. You won't hear the noise from the kitchen and common area. And you won't hear people walking upstairs.”

“We had two stays there, both on the top floor. Both rooms were quiet and right across the hall from the bathroom/shower. However, being on the top floor also meant the rooms got a bit warm in the evening! About the only downside I can think of to the Midnight Sun!”

“You will need to get a taxi from Anchorage airport, approximately $15. Check out the huge Barnes and Noble bookstore nearby. Outback Steakhouse is a couple of minutes walk and worth a meal.”
