Hostel season has finally arrived!!
And... it’s finally summer in beautiful Alaska. The snow has left even the darkest of corners and meadows and the lakes and rivers are ice free and flowing through the landscape with their usual snaky turns and curves. The birds are singing up a storm each morning, the darkness has left us until august and our state bird (the mosquito) is busy sucking on our arms and legs.
Summer time is also project time at the hostel and with the help of our friends Emily, the barbs, Petra and Aline, the hostel got some exciting and beautiful improvement over the last 3 weeks. We finally tiled our shower floors, painted the kitchen a Mediterranean blue and plans for our romantic tree house are finished and nails and hammers are waiting to be put to work.
Again, our guests so far have been coming from all walks of life with “Gerry the tramp” being our first visitor of the 2014 Hostel season. Originally from Austria, Gerry biked all across Russia and is now conquering the roads between the Arctic Circle and Terra del Fuego in Ushuaia, the world’s most southern city, located in Argentina. We wish him all the best, God ‘speed and a journey full of adventure and experiences…..
Come and visit the Interior of Alaska and see what Fairbanks is all about. Paddle the Chena River through town or bike the magnificent trails around the University. Up for a hike? Or chill on a deck next to the River, we got something for you. We offer accommodations for anybody. From campground to private cabins, we have something for “ANYBODY”. Don’t box yourselves into a concrete hotel room with flat screen TV!! Visit our Hostel and enjoy the green oasis within town
