Convient to trails and downtown, good bikes, friendly, reasonable price, fun. Has all the things you need. Food and groceries andbars nearby. Not the best neighborhood, but Not bad. Will stop again when going thru.

We had free pancakes an coffee for breakfast!! The only complaint is that the person sharing the room snored but that it out of...

…you won't mind. He and the rest of the crew at Base Camp Anchorage are so great you'll happily pay the price for not putting your return date on your drink. The place lives up to its name; I stayed three separate occasions in the 12 days I was in Alaska. I was flying in late, but they emailed me...

So, having backpacked around the United States a lot, I was not expecting too much from this hostel. Most hostels in the US are very different from those i have visited in other countries (i.e. not as social, with more locals and less travellers living in them). Imagine my surprise when i walked into Basecamp and was immediately greeted with...

This hostel is filled with positive, accommodating staff and a home-away-from-home vibe. I highly recommend this place - clean rooms, hot showers, convenient location and great atmosphere! I will definitely book here again on my next trip to Alaska!

Very welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent place for travellers or people new to Anchorage who want to make friends. Not nearly clean enough (e.g., bathrooms) or quiet enough (e.g., noise from guests and staff socializing until 12:30am audible with doors closed and earplugs).

I had heard a lot of things about hostels that made me pretty weary but this place was clean and super friendly and so chill with travelers from all over the world.
