This hostel is an awesome neighborhood, the Alphabet District. You can easily walk to Pearl, Nob Hill, Forest Park, and the university. There is a great coffee shop across the street. Make sure to check out Southeast Portland though- it's a bus ride away. The staff is kind and helpful. The common area is very cool and relaxing. It's super... More

I stayed in a dorm here for two nights; well one and half by the time I arrived after an epic 28-hour journey from London! The hostel was clean and spacious and in a great location in a quiet, residential area of Portland, within walking distance to the city centre and not far from the lovely Nob Hill district with...

This is a really nice hostel. It is well-located within easy walking distance to downtown and Washington Park. The surrounding area is safe and leafy with lots of independent cafes and restaurants and there is a well-stocked grocery store a few blocks away. I came on public transport, but I did hear several reports of parking issues, so be aware... More

I stayed in a room in the guesthouse for 4 days. The house was beautiful, with comfortable, quiet communal areas. My room was large and very clean. The shared bathrooms were a little dated, but very clean. The hostel proper was very well-equipped, and the staff extremely helpful. The location is great, about 20 minutes walk from town, and in...

Highly recommend this Hostel if you are looking for a great location to many nearby attractions. Furthermore, the staff is knowledgable, helpful, friendly, accomodating and peaceful. This hostel is clean and offers daily activities to enhance your visit to Portland or to allow you to connect with other visitors. I participated in the Pub tour, 4-T, dinner and movie night,...

We always enjoy staying with Hostelling International as they always provide a good hostel experience. We had a private room in this hostel, and it seemed more like a room in a nice b&b than a hostel. The bathrooms are shared, but there was one right next to us in the hallway and we never had any problems waiting to... More

Awesome and friendly staff who provide you with maps and tourist info upon arrival. Good sized rooms. 1 private bathroom to every 4 bed room. Towels provided free and can rent a locker key free! Amazing nightly rates. Good kitchen facilities and yummy pastries for breakfast. Centrally located and near shopping district and downtown. Portland is a very walkable city!... More

We stayed in the dorm for one night and we found it very easily. The staff was friendly and helping. The dorm was spacious and it was clean. We also liked the laundry service. We definitely recommend this Hostel International.

While other H.I. hostels might offer a higher grade of amenities, this one is slightly older - but the value for money you get is fair. It's the most affordable H.I. I've stayed in, almost half the price of the Boston or the Sydney H.I. dorm bed, so you can't expect the same level of service. It's a good solution... More
