We stayed for a weekend in the two bed room. It was a short walk to the bus stop (Blue and Red) and Owl Cafe. We were also able to walk from the Tanana Valley for the Ice Sculpture Championship. Thanks Billie!

My husband and I stayed at Billie’s last summer and would definitely stay at her hostel again. She went out of her way for her guests with area suggestions and even had home baked bread waiting in the afternoon. Several of the other guests remarked that Billie’s most closely resembled a true, European type hostel.

Very quant, warm place to stay. Easy access to the bus, which me and my friend used to get around Fairbanks for the two days that we visited. In addition to the friendly staff, we even saw a couple moose walking down the street right outside. 10/10 would recommend.

Clean bathrooms, clean rooms, clean kitchen, and very affordable. It's located close to the airport & downtown. There is a bus stop close by. The host, Billie, is really sweet and helpful. Would definitely recommend it!
