About Alaska Backpackers Inn

The hostel consists of four buildings. The Backpackers Inn (blue building in pics) contains 80 beds broken into small dorms (no more than 4 beds per dorm) and private rooms (w/ shared bathrooms). Private rooms include cable TV (80 channels plus Showtime) and micro-fridges in each room. Other amenities include cable TV in a large common area. There you will also find a Foosball table, vending machines, a reading room, kitchen, lots of clean and spacious shared bathrooms and much more.

Last summer we took on the challenge of providing more private rooms due to high demand. Therefore we added our Backpackers Annex buildings (two yellow buildings in pics) down the road. We are now providing more private rooms in this building. we have studio apartments complete with a kitchenette, living room and bathroom. We also offer fully private one bedroom suites with full kitchens and bathrooms.

All rooms have their own thermostat to control the heat and fans and other amenities are available upon request.
