I stayed in the female dorms in early October. The location is very good....close to grocery shopping at Fred Meyers or Trader Vics. Also close to nice coffee shops, cafe's, gift shops upon NW 23 rd...a very nice area for strolling. Try the Dragonfly coffee shop or Anna Banana's for your morning coffee. I walked into town alot...easy walk to Powells Books, the great food trucks downtown and many other intereseting places. I took the Greyhound out to the seaside communities of both Cannon Beach and Seaside two different days (as temperatures soared to 28 celcius)...nice day trips. But take a taxi back to the hostel because the walk back is a bit sketchy (and the taxi is only about $7...well worth it). The staff at NW Hostel were very friendly & helpful. One Aussie staff member deserves special mention as she was first rate and practiced excellent customer service consistently. The female dorms were fine...nothing special...clean & friendly with great big lockers and clean en suite. Lounges & kitchens were plentiful, clean and large. Internet computer available for $1.00 and worked very well.
