We spent 3 nights at Sven's early in our trip to Alaska, staying in the Tipi. It gave us a well needed chance to recover after flying in from the UK and a good base to explore from before we moved onto our next place to visit.

Sven and Rachel made us feel really welcome and I've no doubt we'll stay again in the future sometime (our two week trip seemed to fly by so we hope to come back for a longer trip some day).

I came to Svens Hostel in Fairbanks, just to stay there for a few days.
But the place and the people around were so amazing, that I left after moren then 10 days....
I've seen lots of hostels but this one is outstanding. Clean, friendly andlike a small paradise within the city.
This is the one and only 10/10 hostel I have seen so far. Thanks to Sven and Rahel for having such a great time at the basecamp.
I will be back !

Came into town for a softball tournament last weekend. Had an absolutely amazing stay. Sven, you could not have been a better host my friend. Keep up the good work man.

Hello, I am the one in that slept in my purple car! I made it to my destination (Utah) 4,659 miles later. Had a great trip and it started at your hostel! Thanks for the great stay and friendly experience. I was wondering if there is a chance of getting a copy of the photo you took, since it was the first photo of my trip? If not, that's ok, but it never hurts to ask. Is your sister still there with you? She was such a sweet girl. Anyway, you folks take care and enjoy your day.

I am on a Motorcycle trip and found out about Sven's via the tourist info.
I am in heaven here! there is plenty to do and lots of interesting people to meet, if you want a quiet corner to read you can find that to.
I never stay more than 2 nights in a campsite but today I booked a 3rd.... that says something :-)
Thanks Sven for providing a lovely little hideaway to recharge my batteries

Hallo Sven, vielen Dank nochmal für die Hilfe am 7.Juni 2013, als wir die Niederlassung von "GO-NORTH" gesucht haben. Wir, meine beiden Jungs und ich, hatten eine wunderschöne aber anstrengende Alaska-Yukon-Rundreise.
Wir hatten ein super Wetter auf der ganzen Tour. Wir sind seit dem 23.Juni zurück in Deutschland. Dies war mein 18. Alaskabesuch, und nicht der Letzte!!
Also viele Grüße aus dem Ruhrgebiet senden Dir Karl-Günter, Frank und Mark Lange
