Liked: Private rooms available. Despite the low income neighborhood surroundings, I felt reasonably safe. If I needed to stay in Anchorage again, I would probably stay here if money were an issue. It costs about half for a room compared to a hotel. Shared fridge to keep food, laundry room if you need it. Reasonable location (not in downtown, not out in the sticks).

Disliked: Noise - some artard in the neighborhood was playing his car stereo from midnight till 1am. The next morning, someone left their room before their alarm clock went off at 8am, and so the alarm clock beeped unattended for at least half an hour. I was hearing this through two closed doors. The second night, there were a group of guys standing on the fire escape stairway half a floor down at 11pm, talking loudly enough I could hear what they were saying through a closed window. I went outside and asked them to move elsewhere, which they did. The noise of people opening and closing doors was enough to wake me up early one morning, so the walls / doors are kind of thin.Lack of disinfectant and paper towels in the kitchen. For all I know someone could've been in the kitchen an hour before me, handling raw meat on the counter, and the only thing available to wipe it off with was a well-used dish towel. I poked around and found some disinfectant / cleaner, but the only way to cleanly apply it was to use a brand-new sponge. The fact that most people probably dried their dishes with the dish towel of unknown cleanliness further motivated me to pre-wash all my dishes and utensils before using.Bathrooms smelled like really old cigarette smoke, or something close to it. Though not horribly, and not enough to set off my allergies.I would really like to have had a keyed deadbolt on the door. The locking doorknob seems way too easy to defeat (it did not have a locking tongue).

Liked: Well located: short taxi to airport ($16), next to restaurants & stores, and near bus stops to get to downtown. It's super clean, good price, and good wifi speed. Staff is super helpful with city map & info around town.

Liked: The manager, Joseph, is very helpful and friendly. He keeps the place squeaky clean. The kitchen has more spices than I've ever seen in a hostel. Lots of food left by travelers while I was there and hot coffee is available throughout the day. We had a queen sized bed and the bathroom was just across the hall. Close to Wal-Mart store for shopping, as well as the city bus service from downtown or the airport. A+

Disliked: Nothing really negative to dislike.

Liked: Incredibly helpful and friendly managers - went out of their way to drive me into the centre of town, and stored some bags for free while I was out of town for a short trip. Kitchen facilities were also awesome - free pancake mix!

Disliked: Pretty dicey location (wouldn't recommend walking alone at night), not particularly close to centre, and very little atmosphere among the guests
