The doors are open!!!
Hostel season 2016 has officially started. We’ve already had record temperatures here in the “Golden Heart City” and therefore people have been showing up here earlier than usual. It’s quite nice to have a flock of guest from around the world in the middle of May already.
After 3 years of hard work I finally decided to hire an official manager, a couple from Colorado, who will help me out this season managing all the craziness that hostel life provides for the next 4 months. Their names are Trae and Kassie. They moved to Eagle River this past winter and decided to check out what life north of the Alaska Range is all about. Having lived in the Mat-Su valley myself for many years I’m aware of how incredible of a step it is to move north of the Alaska Range, called the Interior.
So, wherever you may be, make sure to make Sven’s your mandatory stop once you’ll arrive in Fairbanks. We are a 5 min cab ride from the Airport, walking distance to Fred Meyer (supermarket) and have a bus stop right at our driveway. You will arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.
