Hotel Norblad is a recently renovated/rebuilt hotel/hostel that is both friendly and welcoming to people from all over the world. I've even met a filmstar there, he was lost in Astoria at night and found this hotel just like I did, stayed the night an shared stories with all us guests at the place. I was visiting Astoria and was... More

I enjoyed staying at Norblad a lot. Astoria is picturesque and this hotel is right downtown. It has a very minimalist, european feel. The bedding was surprisingly nice and luxurious in the private room.

The Norblad is part hotel, part hostel and part long-term residence rooms (which I have). The owners are putting a lot of effort into renovations and it shows. No one becomes a resident without an extensive background check. Good people, friendly staff and three blocks from the Riverwalk, where the early morning fog hangs lightly over the mighty Columbia.

I told a friend I was staying here, and he said "DON'T", but when I called, the girl on the phone (I believe her name was Hannah) was so enthusiastic, I decided to at least look at the rooms. What a pleasant surprise! The European style hotel rooms (with shared bathroom) were just beautiful, newly remodeled, and classically furnished with... More

Great location here! Located just a block off of 101 Northbound. Right next to Fort George brewery and Blue Scorcher bakery. From the entrance of the hotel you can see the Commodor Hotel just a block over. We stayed in a deluxe cabin on the corner of the building. Simple room but very clean. The shared toilet area and the... More

After arriving in Astoria at 9pm after being on a motorcycle since the Canadian border, we needed to find a room fast. We could only find two vacancies in the whole city...and the Norblad was one of them. We hesitated at first because of the shared bathroom (we have stayed at a lot of hostels), but we were desperate and... More

The Hotel is newly renovated and now called "Norblad". The rooms were nice and clean, also the showers. There are sinks in every room, showers shared on the floor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Althogh there was no breakfast, it is not a big problem, as local cafes are just ariund the corner. The best you can get... More

We stayed at the Norblad Hotel/Hostel (previously called the HideAway) because we couldn't get a room at their "sister" hotel, the Commodore. Honestly, I'm glad I didn't spend the extra money for the Commodore. The Norblad is on the same street and right across from a fantastic brewery (Fort George Brewery). We loved our room. It was very big, clean,... More

I believe the Norblad is undergoing a complete renovation in 2013. We stayed in a newly renovated suite room. The Norblad is a bit of a hostel/shared facilities place with some private rooms that have their own bathroom. That said everything was very clean. Things were a little bit on the spartan side but I attribute that to the fact... More

Showed up with my bicycle. They gladly gave me a room at a decent price. Room was good(comfy bed, tv, refrigerator). The problems arose as the sun went down. Quiet hours were not enforced and many guests were drunk and hollering in the halls well into the night. The kitchen also had few or any cookware.
