    The Best Hostel in Alaska


    Billies is a bustling, privately owned and operated hostel located 10 minutes from the University of Alaska and near many restaurants bookstores, pubs, and more. It has a family atmosphere and I found it a very welcoming and comfortable place to stay. It was also a great place to meet other travelers from throughout the world. Billies is one block from city bus routes, and shuttles are available linking Billies to and from Anchorage, Denali and Valdez.

    The cost for a bunk is $25 per night, which includes linens and a towel.

    A nice homy hostel


    After 26-hours flying, I was totally tired and ready to sleep outside. Before the opening of campus, I had to stay at hostel for two nights. I didn't have time to make any reservation, even I know that August is still peak season in Alaska.
    But luckily, the friendly taxidriver drove me to Billie's and told that it is very nice place. Unfortunately there were no space for me and I was ready to sleep outside. But then somehow they arranged place to us, 'cause somebody didn't show up.

    Unique Quality: This quite small family atmosphere hostel is located near of UAF. Because Fairbanks seems little bit scared for the first time, it is wonderful to hide to the Billies. There are two floors and common kitchen in both of them. There is also Internet connection, tv, you can rent a bike and the best thing, linens are included to the price...
    Billies is also pretty cheap what comes to Alaska, 22 $ per night.

    Inexpensive and convenient


    In Fairbanks I stayed one night in Billie's Backpackers Hostel. It's located at 2895 Mack Blvd not too far from the Univ of Alaska Fairbanks. But if you are new to the area get a hostel map first, because it's hidden a few blocks off the main street College Rd. The hostel is free spirited. It's open 24 hours with people coming in and out freely. Good that I didn't see any homeless around. Given Fairbank's long daylight in the summer, it's common to see hostellers sipping beer in the patio or playing frisbee well after midnight. Besides that, it's no different from other hostels with dorm rooms and shared kitchen. It has free internet.

    I paid $20 for the night (May 2002). I didn't take photos there. The attached photo was taken from the Hostel's website.
