I guess for the price you can't expect much. Paid about $60 for a private room but it didn't really do much good. The walls are paper thin and there are unsealed door connections between rooms so I could hear every snore, sneeze, and sound from all the rooms around me. The staff were nice and the breakfast was ok,... More

Stayed for two nights with my wife in a private room. The room we got was great, very large and had a couch and table. Pretty good at $80 given the location. We were on the second floor and there were two full bathrooms and a separate toilet, plenty available and we never had to wait for a shower or... More

This place had all the basics covered - it was clean, had a nice kitchen, free wifi, good location etc. The staff were friendly. I wouldn't say this hostel was amazing but I had no issues with it and it was a safe place to sleep for one night.

I stayed in a private room located in a separate house than the hostel. It is literally next door, you just go to the backyard and there is the entrance to the house. The house was beautiful, I liked that I was in a house and not a hotel building. The room was tiny but it was fine. Couldn't open... More

This hostel is really easy to find & the location is great. You are able to walk around the city from the hostel to explore Portland & the staff are more than willing to help you find areas/stores that you want to find. As a solo female traveller I am always conscious of the hostels & areas I stay, but... More

As part of my solo trip to Portland I stayed here for two nights and was able to see quite a lot. The location is great and provides easy access to all kinds of greatness in downtown Portland. The private rooms and bathrooms are very clean and welcoming. Everything is environmentally friendly which I appreciate. I also enjoyed the pub... More

This hostel was a short walk from the City Centre - which allowed you to catch trams out to the East Side. They had a range of activities you could sign up for such as tours and pub crawls. The wifi was good, bedding comfortable and bathrooms clean - they had a shower/bath so if you've never been to the... More

Stayed two nights with my husband. Our private room was exceptionally large and included a couch and table. On our level there was three bathrooms and this was plenty- we never had to wait. Staff were friendly but not over-the-top and the hostel is in a great location. We loved Portland.

The building is beautiful. The rooms VERY clean. Everyone is very polite, but not friendly. People don't look up at breakfast, and there isn't a lot of 'hi nice to meet you' conversations. The staff had a sort of ennui that was shocking following a Seattle Hostel that abounds in friendliness. They seemed more interested in talking amongst themselves. I... More

My friend and I stayed in a private room at this hostel during a visit to Portland. It was very clean, although the walls are thin and we definitely heard our neighbors having some "fun" when they got back from the bars late. However, the location is fantastic. It's situated right between the Pearl District and the Alphabet District and... More
