Each year, we take great care and time to hire the best people we can find, because we know it is our staff that makes your visit to Alaska the best it can be. Without the hard work and dedication of these extraordinary individuals, Denali Mountain Morning Hostel would not be what it is and your visit to Alaska would not be as wonderful! We heartily thank those who have worked for us, those here now and those who will be here in the future. They are the best.

Meet Our Staff:



and the Crew (2018 photo coming this spring!): 


Hi! I'm Ali. I started working at the hostel in 2009 as a housekeeper, before eventually becoming the manager, and in 2015, I began the process of buying the business! I feel lucky to call the hostel home, and I'm so thrilled to have it and our crew be a part of your Alaskan adventure!

I spend the summers working hard at the hostel, and running, hiking, and playing in Denali and the surrounding area as much as possible during my spare time. Denali is my year-round home, but I still try to travel as much as possible during the hostel's off-season.

Now, without further adieu, please allow me to introduce the 2017 Denali Dream Team (2018 Crew Introduction will be coming soon, so stay tuned!):

First up, we have Rachel, who will be joining us from her "other home" in Bellingham, WA. This will be Rachel's fourth summer working at the with us. When she's not smiling from behind the front desk, you can find her hanging by the nearest bonfire, building up her agate collection, or playing her hand in a game of cribbage.

Next comes Tom, originally from Salt Lake City, UT. Tom has worked multiple summers in Denali, and this will be his second year helping guests at the front desk. In his spare time, you can find him trail-running and exploring the outdoors or playing with his adorable canine companion, Sully.

Stacie will be joining us from Anchorage via Ohio to help out with shuttles to the park entrance and in keeping the hostel bright and shiny. This will be Stacie's third summer in Denali, but her first season at DMMH. She enjoys spending time outside in her spare time and loves watching our resident moose that hang out around the Carlo Creek area. 

Last but not least we have Neal, who is also joining us from his "other home" in Bellingham, WA. Neal has worked many summers in Denali and Alaska in the past, including two summers at the hostel helping out with maintenance and keeping everything here in ship shape. In his free time, he loves hiking and exploring in the mountains surrounding the hostel, agate hunting, antler hunting, and cooking delicious meals over the campfire. He'll be the guy in the gray Carhartt's.
