Besides dormitory and camping accommodation, Spenard Hostel has a large yard with a barbecue and plenty of lawn furniture to enjoy during the long sunny days.

We are happy to offer free coffee, tea, and hot cocoa, as well as make-it-yourself breakfast (pancake/waffle mix, syrup, and oatmeal) and host weekly potluck dinners.

We have plenty of space to spread out, including 3 fully stocked kitchens, 3 common areas (one for conversation, a library for book exchange and using computers, and a TV room) and 4 home style bathrooms.

We are happy to offer bike rentals to help you further explore the city. Our coin operated laundry includes free detergent. We have free WI-FI and pay kiosk computers available.

Free bag storage is available to our guests, as well as inexpensive long term storage if you need to leave some things behind.
We also offer a bear spray and camp fuel exchange, and host what one guest called 'the best free bin in the state of Alaska.'

From the airport:
By car: From International Airport Road, turn left at the light on Spenard Road. Go through the light on Wisconsin, and turn left. Turn again just past McDonald's. Make a quick left onto W 42nd, and we are located halfway down the block on the right side in a green and purple building with a mural on the front.

By bus: Take the #7 bus to the stop just past Spenard and Wisconsin (Anchorage bus drivers are very helpful--let them know you're heading for the hostel.) From the stop, cross Spenard Road (there is an under street crossing if traffic is heavy) and continue onto Turnagain. Take the first left onto W 42nd and walk halfway down the block to 2845, on the right hand side.

A taxi from the airport will cost $7-10.

Located Near

Spenard Hostel is located on a quiet residential street in the historic Spenard neighborhood, with easy access to downtown as well as Anchorage's extensive trail system. Several restaurants and bars are within walking distance, as well as scenic Lake Hood, one of the busiest water landing airports in the world.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
