This was my first time staying at a hostel, and I'm so glad I chose Hawthorne. It's in a great location, close to a main bus route & a quick bike ride to downtown/pearl district etc. The whole place was very clean with a warm, homey bohemian feel. Bathrooms were clean and I never had to wait longer than a... More

Stayed here 3 nights and had a great time. Bathroom facilities were basic but always clean, and the bedroom was very comfortable - though I was sharing with some older women who insisted the lights be turned off at 10pm!! The location is great, I walked into the centre once but you have to cross over the river and I... More

Stayed for 3 nights in March 2015. Clean hostel, everyone was very polite, staff was very courteous and helpful. Great atmosphere, and a great, quiet neighborhood that is not too far from Safeway (and breweries ;) ) I would return to this again

The hostel is an old house on one of the main streets in SE Portland. The room consisted of a queen bed and bunk beds. It was spacious and clean. The washroom and shower was just across the hall. The people who ran the hostel were friendly and welcoming. Coffee and cereal or pancakes were offered for breakfast in the... More

Travelled down to Portland from Canada for a few days, which included Memorial Day, and so cheap options were kind of limited. I usually give Hostels a wide berth but am glad I gave this a go Great location - took me less than 15 minutes from the Union Station. Very easy to get around Portland from here be it... More

Found it to be a great stop over place to stay, it's located in a quieter part of town, but buses go into the city centre not too far away, close to bars and coffee shops too. I enjoyed exploring that part of the city, everyone in the hostel was very friendly and room/shower facilities were adequate for a short... More

Only stayed here one night on my way to Washington but found it to be clean and comfortable. Desk staff was friendly and helpful. The place is old and gives the impression of a hippie pad, which fits in perfectly with the surrounding area. On site parking is limited but parking available in nearby residential neighborhood. Lots of craft beer... More

This review is really late - I actually stayed there in March of 2014, but damn was it awesome! Supremely eco-friendly, and also just regular friendly. The location is excellent (walking distance to tons of cool sightseeing, shops, markets, restaurants, etc). The lodgings were spotless and cute, and they had a lovely yard and porch for hangouts. The kitchen is... More

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
