Liked: This is one of the best hostel I have ever stayed in and I have been to many places in many countries. The place is extremely clean. The kitchen is well-equipped with pots, etc. and it has many different spices and even some food (e.g. oatmeal) available for people to use. My room is really nice. I honestly consider this hostel one of two top hostels I have ever stayed in. I am actually surprise that in such an expensive place like Anchorage, AK this hostel is not more expensive.

Disliked: Honestly, there is nothing that I dislike about this hostel. It is relatively centrally located (I walked to a restaurant last night). One can walk to Walmart Supercenter from it. It is a great please to stay!
