The Best Hostels in Anchorage, Alaska

Updated August 2023, The Best Hostels In Anchorage, Alaska was originally written in April 2018

Okay, let’s be real here- hostelling is a fairly new concept in Alaska, so this post should more appropriately be named ‘The Only Hostels in Anchorage‘.

I’ve lived just outside Anchorage my entire life and can attest to the fact that hostelling is a relatively new concept here. Accommodation prices, along with everything else in Alaska are insanely expensive, especially in the summertime. There are a handful of hostels that have popped up around Anchorage in the last few years.

Below are the eight best deals on accommodation in Anchorage, six of which are hostels with dorm rooms available and two that have private rooms on offer with shared bathrooms.
