“A diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Actually, even Port Townsend (the rough) is coming up in the world, with a few cafes and restaurants in the downtown area. Note that Port Angeles, with a maritime (cool, some fog) climate, gets less rain than Seattle -- it's in a partial rain shadow. The charming ToadLily house is just up the hill from the center of town, conveniently adjacent to a 24-hour Safeway... The proprietors live right next door, and the Hostel house is clean and bright and boasting lots of interesting art. I agree with everything in Elise N's review. Very clean and welcoming, beds new and comfortable, very welcoming kitchen and lounge area. Interesting outdoor spaces, with art and gardens. Port Townsend draws an outdoor (Olympic National Park, etc.) clientele, my hostel-mates were nice and interesting people. My only issue --Wireless internet is a little slow. You can always go down to the Oven Spoonful or other cafe with free internet.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a cottage at the back.

This brand-new hostel in Port Angeles is a gem. I spent 3 nights here and it was a great base from which to explore the Olympic Penninsula. Cody was a hugely generous and helpful host and I immediately felt at home there.
The small green house has a warmth and you will instantly feel part of a special community, though you obviously have the freedom to keep to yourself... though with pizza nights, a beautiful garden, and a comfy lounge area, it's hard to not socialise and feel like you're hanging out at a friend's house. It may have helped that the weather was nice and the other travellers were wonderful people. This place ranks in my top hostel experiences.
Clean shared bathroom, kitchen, room, and lounge area. Free wi-fi.
I'd call ahead to book a bed in the summer.
