Alaska's hostels stretch travelers' dollars
"Can you believe we just ate three nights of lodging?" My Swiss roommate, Susan, and I were stunned that our meal and two Alaskan beers at the Hangar had cost us $30 apiece. That was equivalent to three nights of lodging at the Juneau Hostel, where we were staying for $10 a night, plus a chore (such as sweeping the kitchen floor).
