Billie's Backpackers Hostel Reviews


Billie's Backpackers Hostel is Fairbanks' longest running, friendliest hostel. In operation since 1991, we are a family-run, home hostel. We are open Year Round and we have NO CURFEW!

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

Contact Billie directly for private room inquiries.

We are the main stop for shuttles coming to & from Anchorage, Denali, Yukon and Arctic Circle/Prudhoe Bay. Just ask your driver to let you off here.

We are in an ideal location within walking distance of the University of Alaska main campus, many shops, pubs, restaurants, bike trails and much more. Easy access is provided by two city bus routes (Red and Blue Lines). See our website for more information.

• FREE Linens
• FREE Wireless
• FREE Bike use with locks (when available and at own risk)
• FREE Coffee/Tea/Chocolate
• FREE Showers (NOT coin-op)
• FREE Storage
• Phone (FREE for local calls)
• Coin Op Laundry

Please note that while pets are not allowed, Billie has a pet pug named “Franky” that likes to greet and mingle with guests in common areas, but he is not allowed in any of the sleeping areas.
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.
