About the people behind Base Camp Anchorage

Our hostel originally began as 26th Street International Hostel inspired by Argentinian travelers. In 2014 we opened our doors as Base Camp Anchorage hostel with a focus on a passion for nature and positive social exchange for travelers. As a small hostel, many of our guests appreciate our community atmosphere and spacious 4 bed dorm rooms.


Our passion for the outdoors has given us experience in mountaineering, bicycling, paragliding, and rafting rivers. We enjoy exploring Alaska and sharing advice on hikes and places to explore. Whether you are planning a multi-day backpacking trip in Denali National Park or sightseeing for whales and glaciers in Seward, we can help you with local knowledge and unique areas to visit.


Although we are avid outdoor enthusiasts and focus on a positive community driven atmosphere, we are not a party hostel. Our quiet hours begin at 11pm. Check out our "Things to do" section for advice on places to visit and our "Travelers Journal" to hear stories of guests who have stayed with us.
