I learned about the Juneau Hostel from another Gogobot member, and staying here gave me a lot of extra $$ for wildlife watching. If you want comfort and no chores, this might not be a fit. But if you want to spend $10 a night and 10-15 minutes daily doing a light chore (such as mopping, sweeping or cleaning the bathroom) this will be a great fit. If you love meeting other travelers, especially international vagabonds, you can't beat this hostel. One of the managers, Troy, is fabulous. Kristen, the other manager, is there for the free rent. She's not interested in conversation, just your $10 and a commitment to do a daily chore. The only drawback (aside from the not so comfy bunk beds) is that you are locked out from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (but you can leave your stuff). You re-check in nightly, and the max stay is five nights.

Set in a historic, yellow wooden house a few blocks from the main street of central Juneau, the international hostel is a great budget option in Juneau. We ended up here when our camping aspirations got rained out. It is very clean and bright, with a big common kitchen. The rooms are shared, dorm style, and separated by gender. Because it is so nice, it does fill up, so you have to book ahead.
