  • The hostel is relatively far from the downtown area, so plan ahead with public transportation if you want to stay late in the downtown area. The beds were horrible - old mattress made it feel like I was sleeping on a piece of wood. Free breakfast is a plus, but there is no real common room or any entertainment facilities

  • Cool and comfortable hostel to stay at when in the Portland area. It's eco-friendly; water comes from the rain collectors. Free pancakes in the morning, and lots of info about what to do in the area.

  • The atmosphere at this hostel is awesome. I met a lot of great people here! I would definitely recommend bringing earplugs to sleep through snoring.
