I found most people who worked at the hostel to be nice and mellow but the owner or manager was constantly watching my movements and correcting me on everything with a rather aggressive attitude. I would avoid if possible, overall not a friendly atmosphere. Plus, they make you pay for coffee and towels. Ridiculous. But I i did make a... More

Clean and warm. Nice staff. Coffee and breakfast in the morning. So much better then a hotel and half the price. Bring your own pillow, theirs are questionable age. I was really late my first night and had no trouble getting in. Nice place to chill in the common area.

Arrived very late at night. Young woman at the desk couldn't find our reservation. Finally did but for the next night. Room we were supposed to have called "The Loft" was apparently still occupied, but no one knew for certain. She found us another private room. Next morning, good news--Loft available. I asked if we'd have the next two nights... More

I would like to offer my sincerest apologies for your experience during your stay at the Eugene Hostel. It is always difficult to have a late check-in for the Loft, but it doesn't excuse the miscommunication that occurred during your stay. At that time, I was working to transition out of the management roll and had enlisted new people to... More

The perfect place for anyone who appreciates art, music, books, affordable prices, and meeting interesting people... The Eugene Whiteaker Hostel has won a piece of my heart, and I know I will always stop in and stay awhile whenever I pass nearby. Of the hostel's two properties, one is more active and centered around socializing. It has a rec room,... More

Absolutely, this is the best hostel I've ever used. Unfortunately, many people don't know this hostel because this is located in Eugene. If you have a chance to stay there, definitely book here. I recommend you so strongly and I'm sure that you must enjoy spending time. Price is also reasonable compared other hostels, that is located each big city.... More

I stayed two great nights at the Whiteaker Hostel and when the time came to leave I felt like I was saying goodbye to a new family. The Sunday potluck brought out the best in the neighborhood chefs and the well stocked and cleaned kitchen made it easy to buy groceries and prepare a proper meal. The bathrooms and beds... More

This place is eclectic and fun, just like the city it's where it's located. Full of friendly people who are willing to help you out, the Whiteaker Hostel is clean, quirky and affordable. If you're looking for a casual, low-key place to crash for a night where you feel safe and comfortable plopping down on a couch to meet some... More

No doubt, this is going to be different from your typical hostel expereince. Its more like staying at a friends house then it is a hostel. But this by far is my faviorte place to stay when I visit in Eugene. The staff is always willing to help you with anything you need. As a runner, I sometimes need a... More
