My review is a little late, I stayed here last summer with my husband and 10 year old son in a private room. Everything was clean, safe, and it's affordable. Met other travelers during our stay and had interesting conversations (which we would probably not have in a regular hotel). Good area for shops/restaurants/coffee. Hostels are not just for 20...

I very much liked staying at the hostel as it felt like staying in a house, something that feels good when you are travelling for a long time. The interior was nice and colourful. The rooms had wooden beds with OK mattresses and were spacious. Breakfast was ok and they have free tea and coffee all day long, which was... More

This hostel is a small cozy cute one. The vibe is very relaxed and the staff very welcoming and helpful. Free breakfast every day till 10am!! Hawthorne street is great, a lot of bars and restaurant and downtown is just a 20min bus ride. The bus stop is just in front of the hostel. A tv room with netflix is... More

Stayed here over the weekend and was rather surprised at this hostel. I usually avoid HI Hostels as they always contain strange guests (children etc.) and have daft rules (no drinking alcohol) but this hostel was nice. The rooms are big, clean with comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms and showers. The location is out of Downtown but all the... More

Portland's Hawthorne hostel is most definitely one of the bets hostels I've ever stayed in. It's a really small hostel with a big concern for the environment. The hostel has a really homely feel. The hostel is located on Hawthorne Blvd which is the coolest street ever, filled will awesome stores and cafes, including some of the best thrift stores... More

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
