Front side of Hostel

Base Camp Anchorage hostel is conveniently located in midtown Anchorage with easy access from the airport, just 15 minutes away!


10-15 minute taxi ride from the airport for $15 US dollars.  The airport is quite small, as soon as you exit there will be a line of taxis waiting.  For mountaineers or cyclist with large luggage, there are usually van taxi’s also waiting in line.   

BY BUS (15 minutes)

Buses from the airport to our hostel costs $2 dollars and drops you off on the corner from our hostel, a 1 minute walk from the bus stop.  The bus leaves every 15 to 30 minutes until 1:29 am Monday through Friday, 7pm Saturday, and 6pm Sunday.  Take the Route # 40 bus towards downtown.  Exit at 26th Avenue just past Northern Lights Blvd.  You will see a white windmill, tell the bus driver to drop you off at the white wind mill, he will know where to stop.  Walk down 26th Avenue on the same side where the bus drops you off and we are just on the left.


The front desk is open from 9am to 11pm.  If your flight is arriving after this time, we can organize a late check in.  Keep in mind a late check in requires a reservation for the previous nights bed.  Ex.  if you arriving early Wednesday morning you need to book a bed for Tuesday night.   

Happy Trails !!!
