My experience at the bent prop hostel was amazing and unforgettable. John and the other hostel management showed me nothing but kindness and made me feel so welcomed. Responsibilities were easy to understand and fulfill. In regards to food, anyone who works at the hostel is WELL taken care of, With plenty of healthy options always available. Plenty of free time throughout my stay to see amazing, beautiful sights. Plus, hostel is very conveniently located next to the main City bus hub, where you can essentially get anywhere in town from. I loved my stay at bent prop inn and hostel.

The hosts are great people! They treat you so well and make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Alaska overall is probably one of the best places I have ever been although downtown is the exact opposite.
Ultimately, If you like nature and adventures, here’s the perfect spot! I recommend.

Because of Covid, the working hours were less than expected (which was great) and the days off were reduced to two (which was fair).
Downtown isn't the safest place, but Anchorage's surroundings offer breathtaking landscapes.
Not having a car is a big limitation here, but I was still able to visit several places. Overall, the experience was good and the hosts are very respectful. I recommend.
