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

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.
