The treehouse is hidden up in the trees on the property of Alaska’s #1 Rated Hostel - Sven’s Basecamp Hostel.

Sven’s Basecamp Hostel is where adventurers in Alaska begin a journey, meet up after a trip, or take a much-needed rest. Mountaineers, amateur naturalist, wilderness guides, motorcyclist, and those looking to explore Alaska find friends and relaxation here like nowhere else in Fairbanks.

The space
Centrally Located between two major ports of entry we are 3.5 miles from Fairbanks International Airport and 3.5 miles from the Fairbanks train station.

You will be within a mile of a Fred Meyer food and supply store and minutes away from some of our favorite bars and restaurants where the locals like to go.


You’ll love your stay because of the private unique treehouse experience, the meals you will cook and share (likely with new friends) in the community kitchen, and the memories you will probably value for a lifetime.

Come alone or bring someone special. We even welcome your furry friends if they are well behaved and welcoming to others.

The treehouse has a wooden staircase that leads up to a swinging bridge. There is one room surrounded by a porch on three sides with private seating facing the forest. Inside is a kingsize bed, shelving unit, trashcan, and seating.

The bed is fitted with a sheet and pillows. Sleeping bags are provided if needed upon request.

The bathroom and quarter-operated shower are conveniently located in our community bath house nearby.

Guest access
You will have free parking in our parking lot. Motorcyclists have designated parking. We have a community kitchen that is stocked with pots/pans and dishes that you are welcome to use. There are also two refrigerators and plastic containers for dry food storage. We ask that all guests clean the dishes they use and label their food with their name and date of storage.

Bike and canoe rentals are available from the main office.

Other things to note
***PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING DESCRIPTION AND RULES BEFORE REQUESTING A RESERVATION.*** When making a request, please tell us a little about yourselves, your interest in the treehouse and indicate that you have read the full listing and house rules. Hope to see you soon!

Location

Fairbanks, Alaska, United States

We are fortunate to be tucked into the trees but also close to a road with access to food, supply stores, and nearby entertainment. Guests agree that we have a unique and special location that feels like a summer camp. One of our favorite compliments is when world travelers from Europe to South America tell us that we are one of the best places they have stayed in the United States. That’s a pretty cool thing to hear!
