“Best Hostel Ever!”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on June 15, 2018

Best hostel ever! Not too big, very laid back with a cool staff. And no joke, they actually have a FLOAT TANK!!! There’s also a wood burning sauna and a teepee :) Pancakes and coffee for breakfast...

If you love meeting people and have a good time, this is the place to come! They have a yard sauna, TP, and newly added floating pod. Great people, location, and staff. Great value and great...

My friend and I stayed at BCA several times over the course of our two weeks in Alaska. The hostel totally lived up to its claim of being an excellent "basecamp" for exploring amazing Alaska...
