Lonely Planet review

Billie’s was undergoing a needed update at the time of writing, with a new front deck going in, and general interior improvements to walls and furnishings. Unlikely to change is the easy-breezy international scene that makes this place regularly full in summer. Billie’s has typical hostel amenities such as showers, laundry and kitchen, but it also offers nice touches such as a mosquito-netted communal tent for campers, and free use of bicycles.

The hostel is off the MACS Red Line and not far from the university. From College Rd turn right on Westwood Ave and walk one block south.

Our independent authors have visited Billie's Backpackers Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Fairbanks.
