The room is outfitted very basically, showers and bathrooms are in the hallway, so it's a shared kind of deal, at least, that's how it was for us. The rooms look very tidy, and the feel is very minimal, but homey, as far as that is possible. They have bathrobes in the rooms so you can easily get around the... More

Extremely pleased with cleaniness and hospitality! Love the record collection and fireplace in lobby. Warm and friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable bed. Only complaint is there were only two pillows.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Norblad. It is a super hip place to stay in the center of downtown Astoria, in walking distance to anyplace in downtown. Beautiful design throughout. Service was super friendly and helpful, as well. The only reason I give this a 4 instead of a 5 is that we felt it was a... More

All essentials, nothing fancy but a cool experience if you never stayed in a hostel. Right in downtown for easy access to the restaurants, shops and bars. We had a private room and bath so had all the comforts of home and a very fair price! Would stay again.

If you've ever wanted to spend the night in an IKEA, this is the place! I was surprised to find all the public places including the showers and bathrooms immaculately clean for a hostel. The decor was eclectic yet warm and inviting. BONUS- they allow pets! Traveling with a dog is sometimes challenging and can add extra costs, but the... More

Such a cute room, amazingly soft linens and comfy bed. Shared bathroom, so there's a sink and towels in the room, but you head around the corner or down the hall to the WC or shower. Bring slippers and possibly shower shoes if you're concerned about that type of thing. Though the hotel furnishes robes, they do not include slippers... More

This was the cheapest lace we stayed in America but really good value - it's very Scandinavian stylish but with everything you need in your room and very clean and comfortable. You have to share toilets and shower rooms but there are plenty and you do have a sink in your room so we didn't find the sharing a problem.... More

Clean room and comfortable bed. No breakfast, but there is a shared kitchen (didn't notice a fridge) and plenty of good local options. We'd stayed in Astoria before, but a way out of town, so this was a pleasure to be close to things. We stayed in an en suite room, but there are rooms where you share the washing... More

Norblad is an average facility hostel cum hotel. It is conveniently located a few blocks away from the columbia coast and other places of interest in Astoria. So, 5/5 for location. The rooms are located two floors above the entry level, with no elevators, so those with heavy luggages or limitations take a note of that. Room are of good... More

This is the one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The communal bathrooms were always clean and had fresh towels available. The staff was friendly and helpful. The shared kitchen had the basic implements and was also clean. It looked like the rooms had recently been renovated. There was nothing that looked worn or depressing.
