Loved Eugene and loved the hostel. Met some awesome people staying there and the staff were brilliant :) was in a really nice location as well, not too far from downtown. Loved it in the evenings sitting round a fire. will definitely be going back at some point in my life.

This hostel is a special place, in the well kept secret liberal enclave of Whiteaker, Eugene. It was a slice of paradise for my wife and I, but it may not be for everyone. For example... if you don't like to say hello to strangers when walking down the street, or prefer total privacy to 'common spaces', it may not... More

we stayed in the Seaside room and slept in a comfortable bed and woke up refreshed. The neighborhood was colorful and interesting and there are lots of tasty restaurants to walk to from the Hostel. The staff and other travelers were nice and we had some great conversations hanging out in backyard lounge area. We are definitely coming back next... More

The location is very nice in the middle of a very nice district. There are a lot of books and instruments around. The stuff is super friendly and I had a lot of fun there. It's clean and comfortable. Go there if you have the chance to! There is not much they could do better! Keep that good work up!!!

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
