"There has to be a best-in-the-world doesn't there? Well maybe a broader, best-in-the-world rating category. I am here to say that Billie's Backpackers is either the best-in-the-world or most certainly in that class. I first stayed here at Billie's in May of Nineteen Ninety Eight (1998) now twenty (20) years ago. I have stayed in the four bed dorm. I have stayed in the larger dorm. I have stayed with my wife and I in the two bed private room. I have tent camped in the back and now I am sleeping in my camper in the parking lot with an electric cord for power. Billie personally will accommodate any reasonable request for assistance. From time to time she will (or she used to) serve a buffet style dinner. The WiFi here is as-good-as-it-gets. I told her so and she said that she personally demanded the best from her Internet Service Provider. Billie's is absolutely the next best thing to home. A fully stocked (in terms of pots and pans and utinsels and spices and oils etc et al) kitchen for those who want to cook. She seems to draw to her hostel a really interesting category of visitors from all over the world. Guests who will share with other guests their groceries and even cook for others. It truly is amazing. The many photos here speak for themselves as to the warmth of the hostel. The bathrooms are large and clean and individual. Some even have bathtubs. The is also a very nice, stand-alone, outdoor, gazebo accommodation unit.As a third generation Alaskan (people in this category have to be extremely rare) Billie is a fount of information about what to see and what to do here locally and state wide."
