The Bent Prop Inn and Hostel

The Bent Prop Inn is the #1 rated hostel in Alaska. Our guests come for all over the world to experience the beauty and majesty of Alaska, Volunteers receive lots of time off for enjoying the Alaska experience.

We have a core staff of about 8 people and use up to 12 during the summer months (May to September). Our volunteers become important members of our staff and treated with dignity and respect. Everyone who works with us is a member of our family.

I had the best of times at the Bent Prop. John and his team made me feel at home and would check in every day or so to make sure I was doing ok!
I could not have asked for a better first Workaway experience and I would recommend this place to everyone.
Thanks again for everything!

For personal reasons I couldn't make it work. John, the owner, emphasized and comprehended me a 100%. Also, he offered me to stay one extra night without charging me until I could figure everything out. He is an incredible person and I will always be grateful.
