Positive Reviews

Convenient central Portland location

This hostel’s location in a complex of historic buildings on a tree-lined street in central Portland, Oregon appealed to reviewers. Not only was it in a fairly tranquil area, but also it was within walking distance of downtown attractions, museums and parks. There were also public transport stops plus shopping and nightlife options just a short walk away. Drivers liked the proximity of Interstate 405, enabling easy access to citywide attractions, sports venues and the airport.

Shared facilities and low-cost rooms appealed

Travelers said the basic rooms were nothing fancy but were clean, cozy and well-maintained. Visitors welcomed the availability of lockers and the provision of linens. Those looking for a little more privacy appreciated the option of private rooms alongside the dorms featuring bunk-beds. Budget-conscious guests welcomed the affordable room rates and many said they got good value for money for the city center. The pleasant outdoor terrace, communal kitchens and free Wi-Fi were also popular.

Good service and friendly atmosphere

The friendly, well-traveled and helpful personnel brimming with local knowledge won praise from reviewers. Guests also appreciated the packed timetable of social events on offer like nights out and movie screenings.

Negative Reviews

Limited breakfast offering

The limited free breakfast offering of hot drinks, breads and spreads disappointed some travelers. However, there were several cafes located within easy walking distance.

Parking arrangements weren’t ideal

Although the on-street parking permits were reasonably-priced and easily available from reception, several drivers commented that during peak periods spaces nearby were sometimes limited, causing them to park several blocks away.

Critics noted flaws in some rooms

Maintenance and cleanliness issues such as dated decor, musty smells, creaky bunk-beds and insufficiently cleaned bathrooms bothered reviewers in several rooms. Light sleepers occasionally claimed noise from connecting rooms was audible, causing them a nuisance.
