Arriving by Air at Fairbanks International Airport?
The hostel is located about 10 minutes from the Fairbanks International Airport. Step outside the terminal and you will see taxi's at your service. The one-way fare should be about $16. Unfortunately, at this time there is no city bus serving the Airport.

The best way to get from the Rail Station to the hostel is via city bus or taxi. BY BUS: SEE BELOW.

BY TAXI: Step outside the rail depot and you will see several taxi's at your service. You may also chose to walk across the bridge to 5th Ave. and take the city bus (red or blue line). See below for deails.

Arriving by Alaska State Ferry?
Yes, Fairbanks is several hundred miles from the ocean, BUT if you arrive into Alaska on the Alaska Marine Highway System into Anchorage, Skagway, Haines, Valdez, or Seward there are direct shuttles to Fairbanks (see above).

We are located near the University of Alaska just off College Road. 2895 Mack Blvd, Fairbanks 99709

Most of the shuttles will bring you directly to our door. Parks Highway Express, Alaska Direct and Alaska Express are just a couple of companies that will bring you directly here. Ask your driver.

From Downtown Fairbanks Bus Depot (located on 5th Ave and Cushman Street) take the RED LINE towards the University. Make sure you ask the Driver to let you off at "Westwood Way". Walk down Westwood one block. We are the very first building on the left. Look for the building with the international flags!
Alternatively, you may take the BLUE LINE ( a longer trip), toward the University of Alaska. Get off at the corner of University Ave. and College Road. Walk down College Road (towards town) about 3/4 of a mile to Westwood Way. We are the first building on the left.
