This hostel was beautiful! Everything was really well kept. It might have been nice to have better bathroom facilities, but all in all this was a great hostel! Everyone was really friendly and I had a really great experience being there. It's relatively close to the main city area, so it's great to go exploring! After having a really full... More

so im a little late with this review. I actually stayed in August 2013. But this place was awesome! Rooms were clean, bathrooms were clean, backyard was quaint and beautiful. Great place for summer nights. They had lockers in the back so if you are nervous about leaving valuables in the room just lock it up in the back (you... More

Pros: Easy to access different parts of Portland, good coffee. Cons: I stayed here for a weekend this last month. I was exhausted after traveling, and had to be up early the next day. A couple of women came into the room at around 3 am and despite the polite requests of other women in the room, were drunkenly belligerent,... More

Rooms were clean, kitchen was kept tidy, had a very nice cute little backyard for those warm summer nights! A friend and I stayed here in the Co-Ed dorm room (which was a little awkward to get to because you have to go across the male dorm room..but oh well!) The front desk staff answered any and all questions we... More

Very clean room, helpful staff, great breakfast (replenished when done), modern door codes not keys, towels provided, location good - great bus routes all over the city. Never had to wait for a shower but there was only one shower and two toilets on our floor, no lockers but it felt safe; however it was family orientated and guests had... More

I live nearby in Eugene, and I come up to PDX routinely for weekend getaways. For me, the Hawthorne Hostel is a destination in itself. It's very comfortable and relaxed, with a big expansive kitchen that can accommodate lots of people at once. But what I love most about it is that it's set up to facilitate social interactions. I...

When we first arrived at the hostel, we loved the look of it. Such a great building, very cosy and environmentally friendly! The girl at the front desk was quite nice and suggested some activities for us. However, our stay here quickly went downhill. The front desk rep informed us that I would be in a female dorm, and my... More

We had such a nice stay here! The hostel is super cute and cosy--very homey. The staff had excellent recommendations for things to do around the neighbourhood and you can rent bikes here too! Would definitely recommend it. Everything around here is adorable and fun to explore.

Gosh I love the Hostel concept, and the HI's in particular as they usually enforce *very strictly* a bedding policy which requires hostellers not to use their own bedding/bags and instead utilize linens provided in order to keep the possibility of bedbug infestation to a minimum. Alas, during my stay in my room, several individuals not only slept in their... More
