Denali Hostel & Cabins

Hostel Description

Situated on Carlo Creek in the heart of the Alaska Range, Denali Hostel & Cabins offers you a truly special experience at an affordable price. Our charming, hand-built cabins and dorms are nestled in a beautiful forest with a sparkling creek running through it. During mid-summer, the fireweed flowers spring up over your head, baby moose may be seen trotting through the woods, and the Midnight Sun will compel you to watch the alpenglow turn the mountains & clouds pink.

Just a short, 15-minute drive gets you to the entrance of Denali National Park, where endless wilderness, scenic beauty, and adventures await.

My husband and I stayed in the razorback cabin. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed. Bathrooms were always very clean. The front office/ bus shuttle runners were awesome! They were all very knowledgeable about the area and eager to carry on conversations with everyone . Very unique experience and stay it was like being at an adult summer camp! There is a cafe and a pizza pub across the highway both delicious! Highly recommend staying here over a lodge.

The hostel staff were very helpful. I arrived early and they let me check in right away. They had great recommendations (definitely go to Panorama Pizza across the street).

The kitchen is large and very nice. It never seemed to get too crowded. I never had to wait in line to use the shower or restroom. Everyone was very respectful and considerate of other guests. 

It’s located about 15 minutes away from most of the attractions, but they offer a shuttle service.

We booked Iceworm cabin and the adjoining tent for a three night stay. The staff were welcoming and the facilities were comprehensive and well-thought through. We particularly enjoyed the atmosphere in the warm shared lounge area and toasting s’mores around the camp fire. The position is great for exploring all that Denali has to offer. There’s a choice of good restaurants just steps away and the hostel is good value for money in this area.
