“Okay hotel for the price”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Close to everything and nice people, rooms were clean, but very basic. This is a good stay for the money.

My wife and I stayed here a few months back, we got a private room, which was basically a cheap hotel room. Didn't spend much time there - but it was such a great deal.

Yeah, the decor was bad, but the staff did every thing to make us comfortable.

Seaside as a whole didn't live up to all my expectations, but it has it's gems. This hostel was a good stay.

The Seaside Intl. Hostel is one of my favorite vacation getaways. For only $26-$28/night ($26 your first night if you take the bus) you get to stay in a clean and generally almost or nearly empty dorm room. (in the five times that I have stayed here is has only been full once; the other stays I've slept with between 0-4 other women)
It is a nice walk to the beach, and also about a ten minute walk to the 'seaside strip' of restaurants, coffeeshops, and gift shops.
They offer a continental breakfast of eggs and pancakes, and have a well-stocked kitchen (of utensils, etc.) so that you can easily make other meals here.
Highly recommended for a quiet getaway!

This hostel was in a good location, had a very friendly staff and cool office, and we had a private room with bathroom which was great for a hostel. The decor could use some updating though-a coat of colorful paint and some interesting pictures on the wall would add a lot of character for very little cost. This looked more like a dumpy old motel room. It was clean and comfortable though, and for the price not a bad deal. Just not one of the most memorable hostels I've stayed in.

My wife and I stayed at this hostel in one of their private rooms. We stayed in one of the private rooms closest to the main office and it was basic but very nice and clean. The private rooms nearer to the road are not nearly as nice... if you hear mixed reviews, this is likely why!

I think people forget that this is a hostel, so your mileage varies depending on the people that are working and staying there. Djembe playing Jeff started helping out last week and really instilled a great spirit in the place. He may be gone as soon as tomorrow, or he may end up running the place. Who knows?

The point is, this is a great hostel in a great location. It needs fantastic people visiting to keep the vibrant experience alive!

Room Tip: A general rule.. the lowest numbered private rooms are the best (rooms 1 - 4 are dorms I think)

Lovely little hostel overlooking the river. Very lovely owner that checked us in and greeted us with a smile. She was very helpful in advising us what to do in Seaside. Loved the Kayak rental on the river from hostel -$9 each for 2 hours - bargain! You can't go wrong! We rented double private room that had it's own en-suite! A luxury when you think most hostels have shared facilities. Great price too, would have loved to stay longer than the night we booked. The oregon cost is very pretty to visit and no sales tax is a bonus too if you want to shop in Seaside outlet mall that is a walk from the hostel. Amazing stay, thank you very much, we have been to many hostels around the world and this is one of the best for the all around package! You have got to visit this place! Jo and Phil, Wales UK.

We had a very pleasant 3 night stop here. Seaside as a place doesn't really have much to offer but it is a quaint place feeling very much like an English seaide town and being on a 6 month trip it was nice to find somewhere that was cosy, safe and where we could just relax. The hostel was great offering free pancake breakfast and a well equipped kitchen with the best free food shelf so far! (its nice when a hostel has herbs and spices for guests use) It is not a party hostel but that suited us fine. Our room was great, clean with an en-suite.
