This Bohemian-styled hostel and motel is loaded with character and stories. The name, meaning ten legged polar bear, refers to a Native American oral tradition, echoed in the large angled log pillars propping up the front of the building. The establishment features individual self-contained units, as well as dormitory or pod-style accommodation with a shared bathroom. There is also a...

I when to work for them and housekeeping are not clean and front has to much drama. They are not clean or professional. They don't have extra towels or sheets and pay a lot for a very small room. Thank you sorry it was a bad review.

This was the cheapest place I found in Anchorage just for one night but now I understand why t was so cheap. The pod held a fold up cot that was the most uncomfortable thing ever. Of course the pod was only about four feet high and ten feet long which is okay but I would rather have slept on...

This place has the true potential to be really cool and a great hostel. As of right now tho it's awful. The man at the front desk was worthless. Not sociable or friendly at all. The shared bathroom was smelly and dirty the shower looked as it had never been cleaned. No towels were provided either. The single private room...

The back patio was a great place to sit and enjoy a beer at the end of the day as we talked to some of the other guests. The kitchen and common areas...

Very unique. The lobby has some very comfy MIB white egg chairs that are super fun to sit in. There was coffee in the morning & fruit & cereal for breakfast, small kitchen area for guests to use to cook by the lobby dining table. Our room was really comfy & clean. The bed was a nice big queen with...

On line it seemed almost acceptable. In person more questionable. No one at desk until 10 in AM. Supposedly light breakfast provided. Better bring your own food if you want to eat. I saw a picture of a pod & reserved it for a friend. No mattress on short army style cot. A pod is 4 foot by 6 foot...
