This place was very clean and tidy. Cozy cabins with a nice common area. My wife and I stayed in Sanctuary #3 and met one staff member, Todd, who was awesome. We made a fire right next to the creek with wood provided by the hostel and watched for the aurora. I would recommend anyone looking to have a great stay while also getting a unique Alaskan experience to stay here.

A must-stay!

This stay was such a GREAT experience. The rooms & common bathroom/kitchen area were SOOO clean. This place is 100% safe during COVID pandemic. The hosts & Staff were just so sweet and helped guide us towards must-see places/activities which we LOVED. The cabin was simple but CLEAN and the room had plenty of heat, windows, and power outlets. The location on the cute river was remarkable; they had lawn games and a camp fire every night. It was easy to meet the other residents and get to know the friendly staff. The entire experience made us feel like this was a second home. We are already planing our trip next year to stay at this location for a bit longer than 6 days. If you are still considering, please book this place immediately!

Affordable lodging, convenient location

The Denali Hostel & Cabins offers lodging at a reasonable price in an otherwise very expensive area. They are conveniently located just a few minutes drive south of the entrance toDenali National Park on the banks of Carlo Creek. They offer many different sizes of accommodations. There is a common kitchen area for guests to use and they provide all cooking utensils, spices, cooking oils and dishes. Lodging comes with all bedding as well as towels. There are several common shower rooms and toilets. Many units are on the creek and have firepits and firewood. They have free wifi (works best in the common kitchen area). The staff is friendly and helpful and at the same time not intrusive.

Adorable comfy place.

I fell in love with this place! Nested along the Carlo Creek, all the cabins are nested within pine trees, giving them a sense of privacy. We rented one of their "Sanctuary" for $100/night, it was comfy, warm, the sheets and towels are provided and it smells so good inside. What is touching is the care of the owners: they put "Seventh Generation" cleaning products everywhere, nothing toxic over there. The bathrooms are super clean. The "Octogon" or main building is where you can access WIFI, that's also where the kitchen is: totally equipped and super clean. They also have a lending library in the Octogon with everything Denali, very thoughtful. Only comment: Due to COVID, the office is closed and all the instructions are on the bulletin board when you arrive. Took me a while to figure it out. I would suggest you take their phone number with you in case of questions. I extended my stay another day, texted and emailed the owner, and it was resolved in a matter of minutes, so very efficient and professional. Highly recommend this place to everybody.

Was everything we wanted

I have stayed here on my 2 visits to Denali and I enjoyed it very much. Your location by the little stream is peaceful and beautiful. Everything has always been clean and in good condition. The common areas are arranged well and offer an excellent opportunity to meet people from different countries. One time when we were there we had a sudden need for different accommodations and your staff worked it out for us with no problem. I can't wait to visit there again, but unfortunately I won't have the chance this year. I hope you do well in this weird year and are there for a long time to come. Thanks for being great hosts.
