I stayed for a couple nights when I was in town. Both Chris and his wife who run the place were super nice and very accommodating. If I am ever back in town or have friends traveling I will definitely recommend this place to friends. Everything was clean and is located in a great neighbourhood - a close bike to... More

Great place, great people, great location. I couldn't be happier with the help in getting to know the city as I was brand new to the area. Chris the owner, especially, went above and beyond to be helpful and understanding of my situation. You can't go wrong staying here and visiting or trying to relocate like myself.

The Friendly Bike Guest House is a cosy place to sleep and hang around; for travelers and especially for bikers! The landlord is helpful and gave me the information I needed. Because Portland is THE city to bike (in the US;) I rented a nice sportlike bike from the landlord. The room where I stayed in was a spacious room... More

I first stumbled upon the FBGH in 2012 while on a cross country adventure... The Guest House was an awesome respite from life on the road, and the owner and fellow guests were a wealth of information on things to do in Portland! Since then I've returned EVERY time I've visited Stumptown and stayed at least one night... Most recently... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2016. FBGH is a charming little place in NE Portland, a lovely part of the city. It's within walking distance of some fantastic restaurant & shopping streets, a big supermarket, and plenty of cafes/bars/breweries. It also feels extremely safe - I had no qualms about walking around by myself at all hours... More

I visited PDX for three weeks last month (January, 2016) and stayed at the Friendly Bike Guest House (FBGH) for two of these three weeks while I attended classes at the United Bicycle Institute (UBI) in North Portland. I found that the FBGH is a well-designed, well-maintained, and comfortable guest house to live in that is owned and operated by... More

What can I say about FBGH!? To start, I decided to book a private room for a few weeks, while attending UBI. I wasn't supposed to arrive for another day, but Chris (the man behind the curtain), was able to set me up in a shared room early. The guest house is all of about 200 feet from the school,... More

Fantastic home away from home on trendy N Williams Ave. Close to N Mississippi, Portland City, NE Alberta and just about everything else!! Public transport was an easy walk and a "WholeFoods" style market is only a few blocks away. The house is spacious, clean and well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. Our room was good sized... More

This was a great place to stay. I really wanted to be staying in Boise so booked here. It was warm and welcoming and easy going. It's clean and fresh and I met amazing people here. The Boise neighbourhood is great for walks, riding, eating and drinking.
