Billie's Backpackers Hostel Reviews


I feel warm at Billie's Backpackers Hostel. This is home and Billie cares about everyone even from different countries. I have a unforgettable memory.

Age 42 | TAIWAN

Very pleased and very comfortable

This was my first time staying at a hostel and my experience at Billie's Backpackers Hostel in Fairbanks, AK was wonderful. I was traveling alone and I'm in my sixties. Billie made me feel comfortable and my stay was more than I could have asked for. The hostel was very clean and the other travelers were very friendly. Billie went out of her way to give me directions/suggestions on this to see in the Fairbanks area. I'd "highly" recommend this hostel to anyone.

Not great for privacy or allergies

Don't book this place as a private room. There is a private room that is the same rate as the dorms, yet whoever gets the private room can stay as long as they like, so you take your chances. Its pretty old, and I felt like I should be wearing my shoes inside as the floor was covered in animal hair from the dogs and cats. People with allergies, this is not the place for you.


We stayed three nights in this hostel. Billie is a very kind and friendly person. We had an excellent stay in this hostel.


Besides being friendly, clean and comfortable this is a great place to meet other travelers. It's close to the university and the bus stop, which is a block away, makes it easy to get around the area. Billie is an excellent host. The relaxed atmosphere and no curfew are a definite plus.


This hostel is the warmest and friendliest hostel. Billie is great and gives you the feeling that you are at home and safe.

Andrew Hunt

This hostel is located near the university, and though it is a distance to downtown, the hostel is directly on the bus line. Billie is extremely accommodating and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hostel over any other in Fairbanks.


Great atmosphere! It had a good kitchen and good common areas. The dorm in which I stayed was a walk-through room and the bed was not that great (very squeaky). It is a long way to downtown and the next shops, but there is a great pub nearby and people (including Billie) were great. I enjoyed my stay very much.

We have several room types: some private, some dorms., and some unique accommodations. There are generally no more than 4 persons to a room.

Also note that we will make every effort to separate the sexes, HOWEVER in the busy summer months the arrangement may be CO-ED.

Billie’s Backpackers Hostel is a wonderfully accommodating place from which you can base your Alaska adventure. You won't find a place with a more comfortable friendly atmosphere.
