I stayed at the hostel for 3 nights. It was a super excellent experience. The hostel has been there for 11 years and the staff are very friendly and warm hearted. The beds are comfortable and clean. The decoration is creative and pretty. And very EASY to find the location. Strongly recommend.

Awesome place to stay. Like visiting your favorite cousins. Mac, Megan, Steve and Marissa are great. The room was clean and comfy. They tolerated my early mornings and were great company at night. We shared ginger tea and lots of great conversation. I'll be back.

I say this every time I am here, that it feels like I am staying at a friends house, and that feeling I got yet again. Stayed over in the Garden this time, my bed was probably the most comfortable bed that I have stayed at here, the bedding was clean and the room was completely perfect for what I... More

As 1st time hosteliers, we were blown away by this wonderful hostel. We can't imagine we'll ever find another to top this experience, though we will look forward to sampling many more. The rooms are clean and inviting, the grounds and facilities were inspired and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. Owner Mac HInes is a true ambassador of... More

By far the best way to experience Eugene is by staying at the Whiteaker Hostel in the Whiteaker neighborhood. With the eclectic mix of artistic residences and businesses like Red Barn Natural Grocery and New Day Bakery & World Cafe, and several breweries within a few block radius like Ninkasi, Oakshire, and Hop Valley, this is where it's at. It... More

Friendly, clean, eclectic. Wish I could have stayed longer. Surrounded by great food and coffee, and lots of bike friendly streets. Located in the colorful Whiteaker section of Eugene. Very friendly staff.

Skip the Hilton or Holiday Inn, why bother? The Loft has kitchen, bathroom, living area, dining area and cozy bedroom. A back balcony allows for an individual yoga practice. In the morning French press coffee and pancakes are the norm. Mac, the owner, lives on the premises and is friendly, knowledgable, polite and cool. All of the guests were friendly... More
