26 Street International Hostel

A hostel created by travelers for travelers, located in the heart of Alaska's largest city, nestled between the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet.

The only hostel in town designed for travelers and NOT FOR WORKERS!! According to our experiences around the globe, European hostel style.
The ?26 Street Hostel? is run by travelers for travelers. This is a very clean and tidy place to stay in Anchorage with a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

We are a hostel for backpackers, travelers, bikers, climbers, trekkers and everyone who lives the adventure from inside and the simple life, knowing that a hostel isn't a hotel . We offer to the travelers a comfortable bed, a very clean house and a good breakfast. (only available until September 15th)

We run the hostel between my wife, (Marcela) and myself (Sebastian.) with the help of our cute baby girl (Florencia,) the real boss! This is a very safe place especially for woman traveling by themselves or families; for those people who want to share their experiences with others and also looking for a cheap bed to sleep!

If you are one of them, this is your house.


We are located halfway between the international airport and downtown Anchorage in the Spenard Neighborhood. This neighborhood is known for its vibrant nightlife.

We are just a few minutes walk to a 24 hours supermarket and the Coastal Trail, an unrivalled system of bike trails criss-crossing the entire city of Anchorage.

The hostel features six dorm rooms and two private rooms. There are also three bathrooms, a large kitchen and TV room.

We have a big and beautiful back yard with badminton field, a basket game ,a complete gym for working out, a cover area for BBQ , many picnic tables and a bunch of couches spreading out all over the yard to enjoy a coffee, a frozen beer or a glass of wine under a midnight sun in one of the more incredible summers you have seen anywhere.

A very awesome breakfast!!! Not a simple continental one ( $ 7 at least in any coffee shop or restaurant) is provided for guests for free. It's made with a lot of love every day by Marcela!!!! There is free Internet access (normally $ 4 per hour in any cyber-café,) 3 terminals & wireless system work.

We have a big laundry with coin operated washers and driers. If you book 2 or more nights you have free laundry per person. Every room has full carpet and is very roomy and cosy.

After having been traveling around the world during 10 years, I can tell you, this is an amazing place to stay! Of course the best place in the city to feel relaxed and at home!
We operate a non-smoking hostel! Nos hablamos Espanol. A gente fala portugues.
