I stayed for a night and really wish I could have stayed longer! My boyfriend and I stayed in the "Captain's" room and I was pleasantly surprised to see the room had it's own bathroom with a bathtub and a big, comfy bed. The kitchen was big and clean, with pancake mix and coffee offered in the morning. We also... More

I only stayed for a few hours, 10 hrs at the most and the whole time felt like I was staying at a friends house, an artistic and clean friend who shared everything they personally have to make sure I felt comfortable. I have no complaints, only to tell new comers to expect to pay a 10 room key fee... More

Made a last minute stop to Eugene and could only stay one night, but for sure I will be coming back, at least to Eugene, because of this hostel! As soon as I walked in I experienced a calm, collected, clean but vibrant energy - the whole property is beautifully decorated with both travelers' and local love. All the staff... More

I came here for a short visit before moving to Eugene. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were tidy. Couldn't have asked for more- perfect location, easy street parking, and located in a neighborhood with a lot of fun character.

The staff and other residents here always make us feel welcome and the rooms are clean and well kept. There is a lot of... More

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
