My husband and I spent two nights here, along with our two-year-old, in a private room. The room was spacious and quiet, easy to walk to downtown Portland and lots of shops and stories nearby. The building itself is beautiful with lots of history and the hostel is well-equipped with kitchens and common areas. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful, best hostel experience I've had! Everything brand new in the new annex and staff super helpful. Really close to everywhere you'd wanna go to in Portland, easy to walk everywhere. Very clean obviously since the building was new, but the main offices were nice too and kitchen area good. Courtyard would be cute when the weather is better.

Nice hostel ! It has lockers in the room and the bathroom was big and very clean as well as the bed. Very nice people ! It has a common room, with a big clean organized kitchen, outside there is a small patio with tables. I really liked the place, it is quiet yet there is plenty of interesting people...

Stayed here for two nights in the dorm, pretty much easy to get around with Downtown and Nob Hill just a short walk away. Loved the quaint atmosphere of the whole hostel, staff were friendly and pretty helpful too. My only peeve was the access card which kept deactivating a couple of times during my stay but everything else pretty...

My boyfriend and I stayed in a clean, spacious room in the guesthouse. I can't speak to the hostel portion but the guesthouse was quiet, had multiple bathrooms (single stall but I never had to wait), and was a short walk from attractions like Powell's. Will stay again.

The property is gorgeous from the outside and located in a well-kept neighborhood. The vibe was warm and friendly when I arrived. I stayed in a dorm and the beds were basic with clean linen and electrical outlets. The breakfast is good for what it is, bread and a few different spreads with some coffee. Typical hostel style, can't complain....

The hostel is old. The beds squeak. However, it is located in a great part of town with easy public transportation and wonderful dining. The hostel provides day trips to neighboring venues which are fun and informative. It is a great place to meet people from all over the world and acquire new experiences.

Lovely histel. I was traveling with my older son. On arrival we asked for a private 2 bed room and it was no trouble. We were taken to the house next door.

I stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend just passed and had to come down in the middle of the night for a few questions. Robert at the front desk was super happy to help me and tried going above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and enjoying my stay. I stayed in a 8 bed dorm,...

average everything. Good place to stay on a budget- quite central and average customer service. Quite a gloomy miserable decor inside but the outdoor area (secret garden) was lovely! Breakfast was kinda bad. They need more laundry facilities
