Eugene Whiteaker Hostel
Reviewed October 21, 2013

I stayed two great nights at the Whiteaker Hostel and when the time came to leave I felt like I was saying goodbye to a new family. The Sunday potluck brought out the best in the neighborhood chefs and the well stocked and cleaned kitchen made it easy to buy groceries and prepare a proper meal. The bathrooms and beds were clean, the music room equipped and the fire pit stocked. It was a great stay with wonderful people and I look forward to coming back.

the whiteaker hostel seemed to be a nice warm quiet place to relax. i had a great stay here i even got a bottom bunk next to a window,my favorite it's better to ask for one when you check in or call early. i alway's book with www.hostelbookers.com the staff do keep the place up to standards and it is clean to. they have free wifi and everything is walking distance. buses, restaurant's a good place to eat at is papa's soul food right around the corner great BBQ. it's even in a quiet neighborhood with tree lined street's it's perfect for a walk on a sunny day. i only stayed for 5 day's this time, it doesn't seem to be a party hostel either, so that's good. i will stay here again in my travel's.!

This place is eclectic and fun, just like the city it's where it's located. Full of friendly people who are willing to help you out, the Whiteaker Hostel is clean, quirky and affordable. If you're looking for a casual, low-key place to crash for a night where you feel safe and comfortable plopping down on a couch to meet some new people and listen to them make music on one of the many instruments provided, this is the ideal location for you.

No doubt, this is going to be different from your typical hostel expereince. Its more like staying at a friends house then it is a hostel. But this by far is my faviorte place to stay when I visit in Eugene. The staff is always willing to help you with anything you need. As a runner, I sometimes need a little more extra time in my room if an event is going to run up against the check out clock and they always take care of me.

It is always kept clean and the kitchen is full of stuff for you to use. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The back yard is all multi purpose with places to sit and eat, or places to have a bond fire, or to park your bike.

Room Tip: Masters Dorm is my faviorte

We needed a last minute stay with all the surrounding hotels booked out for events going on over the weekend. The Whiteaker totally pulled through, booked us into a room upstairs last minute for a great price (considering we could have paid $175 a night). The staff were all very friendly and helpful...plus they made delicious coffee. We got directions to the beautiful rose garden and river for a run as well as to the Saturday Market.

We stayed in 'The Loft', so our experience will differ from most, but the lodgings were excellent for the price. We basically had our own apartment on the upper floor of the hostel's second building. It was quiet and comfortable with a private kitchen and bath, and would be a great place for an extended stay in Eugene. That being said, it's still a hostel and isn't like staying in a nice hotel or B&B, but the management was friendly and the location convenient. The loft bedroom could use a reading lamp that works and a little more room around the bed for access, and the bathroom and kitchen could use a little TLC, but we'd definitely return.
