if you would be willing to be out of your room from 9 am to 5 pm. So you could save 100 dollars or more per night than the hostile is your place. Just 12 dollars a night Juneau's best kept secret. Great staff quite a few blocks to a store so bring what you need very quiet and friendly. Small chore to do only 10 minutes or less. You will love Juneau international Hostile

My stay at the hostile was horrible. Upon entering it looked nice outside but when inside I'll briefly describe what it's like. When walking in it smells bad, like a smokers house. The furniture is old. They didn't allow us to bring our own sleeping bags or blankets cause they provided us with some. The ones provided where old and dirty. Some had crap stains others bugers and some black stains. After laying in the bed for 10 minutes I immediately began to itch all over. Boot camp will be better. Sleeping in a car is better than this

I appreciate that they are only $12, you can't beat that and it's hard to complain. But be aware what you are getting into.

1.) They are closed from 9am to 5pm and if you are staying more than one day you don't have access to your stuff if you leave it inside. Yes, they boot you out at 9am and lock the door (unstaffed during the day).
2.) Cash only.
3.) They are closed random weeks (in September particular).
4.) Everyone raves about the location - downtown Juneau is small; anywhere is a good location but this is up the hill..
5.) You have to do a chore..these only take a few minutes so not a big deal, but remember, you have to have it done by 9am!
6.)The walls are paper thin and the bathroom are like a cell, so toilet flushing echos.
7.) The beds are REALLY REALLY uncomfortable.
8.) There is a really strong musky smell in the lower level.
9.) I developed bites the following day in rows and groups. We'll leave it at that.

Pros:
1.) It's $12
2) Kitchen, Wifi, Common area good.

Room Tip: Sleep on the couch

This hostel is centrally located within walking distance of central Juneau while maintaining the charm of a small house — it's also right next to some of the prettiest hiking in the area. Dorm beds are $12 a night — and prices are kept low through chores done by visitors. Run by a non-profit and staffed very well. Easily the best value in Juneau.

Staff holds visitors to rules and this keeps the place rolling along smoothly. Clean bathrooms, easy laundry on site and they supply deregent. Easy safe and free room outside for short-term storage. Buses are close and take the bus to Deharts gas station via the express bus. Next, hitch hike towards eagle glacier. So many places to get out and explore.

Room Tip: Just wing it !
