5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2014

Stayed here for around 2 weeks while traveling through Portland and fell in love with the place. Such a great friendly vibe, clean and accessible to all Portland has to offer. It was more of a home than a guesthouse. Chris is a brilliant host and everyone I encountered staying there was awesome. Can't recommend it enough.

Chris's Friendly Bike Hostel is the nicest and cleanest place to stay in a wholesome area of Portland. My girlfriend and I were quite surprised to see the house and to "check in." When we walked in we felt like at home. I was thrilled about the open living room with couch and chairs. K. was so happy with the... More

I spent a week staying in this guest house in August and had an absolutely brilliant time. Christopher was a great host, I even ended up joining him and his family for breakfast in the local New Seasons Market (a really excellent supermarket with a great deli). I had my bicycle with me and the full workshop in the basement... More

Can't say enough good things about it. Location, quality, cleanliness, friendliness of other guests, access to info & hospitality of host - outstanding across the board. If your cool uncle had a hostel, this would be it. Other guests are a mix of travelers & UBI students. Owner is cyclist, traveler & outdoor guy. Place even has solar power -... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here as the first stop on our Oregon-Washington post-grad trip. We wanted some place relatively inexpensive and close to the city center. FBGH was so much more. Every recommendation Chris gave us was a total hit. He not only gave us options in Portland but he also gave us advice for other destinations on our... More

I'm a 22 year old Australian and I LOVED this place. Stayed here 4 nights and was blown away by the coziness and friendliness of Chris (the owner). With only 4 bunk beds it's certainly not a hostel, but for those looking for a peaceful, effortless stay in portland - this is the place. Highly recommended! - Sebastian

Just stayed here for a week with my husband and it was definitely the best hostel either of us have ever stayed in. Super clean, neat, and comfortable. It's in a good location for exploring Portland by bicycle. We stayed in the private room which has a bathroom right next to it which was nice. Chris was very friendly and... More

Seven of us stayed here a couple of days ago and we loved it! The top floor has a kitchen, couches, bathroom and three bedrooms and it was fantastic having the whole space to ourselves. It's great being a little away from downtown Portland but there are still so many options for restaurants, cafes, cute shops and brew pubs nearby.... More

my BF booked this place for us to stay during our birthday trip to the pacific northwest. because we are both cycling enthusiasts, we wanted to truly experience Portland ("bicycle capital") instead of just staying at a hotel. Chris, the owner, was super nice to us from the very start...everything from booking the place to being a great concierge the... More
