My friends and I all miss the 3 Dog Night Hostel after we left very much. This was my first hostel experience. I didn't have any expectation at beginning, I thought as long as it's ok, I'll be fine. But this place was more than OK, it was so much better than any hotels that I've ever stayed. After we...

The place is far away from light pollution. If you plan to see northern lights, it should be one of your candidate place to stay. Besides, the owner is really nice and the rooms are well decorated. We see amazing dancing northern lights during our stay here.

The woods are also in the back and there is a trail where you can go out and explore. There is also a dog sledding service that...

This is an awesome hostel. Is kindda hard to find, but if you have a car and gps, it's easy. The place is huge, clean, cozy, warm.. and everything you can ask. Is far from downtown, but there is no light, so is easier to catch an aurora there. The cost is very low for what they offer and Mike...

I stayed in this hostel in June. It was very hot and therefore I spent quite a lot of time indoors, rather than out with the dogs. I was in an immaculate female only dorm, with very comfy beds. The bathroom was always clean. The kitchen had the usual equipment. It is possible to get the Black line bus from...
