Decent budget hostel

I stayed in Anchorage as my launch point to Denali and Seward/Kenai Fjords. It was good to be able to extend my stay and book the female dorm last minute in the days in between my trips. The manager, John, splits his time between the midtown location and downtown, and I found he was the most helpful in booking my transportation and the Kenai Fjords cruise. Overall staff were friendly and keep the place tidy despite how many ppl were staying there. It is a budget hostel and nothing fancy here. They provide breakfast which is a plus.

    Very friendly staff. Good place to meet and chat with other travellers. Very conveniently located, about 1 block from the downtown bus transit center. Next door to the Marriott, which is an easily seen landmark. Breakfast items provided, and the kitchen has an area where you can leave excess food you may have purchased or take what others have left behind. Wifi signal wasn't strong in my room (just off the kitchen/dining area) but worked fine in the common areas.
