  • It's a very nice hostel. The location is really accessible to a lot of the city's attractions. I actually walked to most of the places I was interested in visiting. Unfortunately, I can't say I'd stay there again. The hostel is carpeted, particularly in the bedrooms. Despite taking tons of allergy meds I had a lot of trouble breathing at night and my throat is incredibly sore. They do vacuum daily but with so many people coming in and out perhaps that's not enough, at least for allergy sufferers

  • I feel that it should be stated online that are hidden tax fees. Also the website does not give you all the information you should know about the hostel. It is better to go through the hostel then it is to go through the websjte, I found out later on.

  • After a poor experience staying at HI San Fran Fisherman's Wharf I was hesitant about my trip to Portland, but lo and behold the facilities, location and overall experience at the Northwest Portland hostel proved to be much better. I'd definitely return on future visits.

  • booked a single room for $59 weekday night and $69 weekend night. changed room THREE times the night I arrived (had to drag my luggage all the way myself). their single room is HORRIBLE compared with double room which is only $10 more expensive. really don't understand they could charge me that much for those shabby tiny smelly cold single rooms. had to change to double room later. the staff seemed ignorant of my request. though one of them is quite good and helpful.

  • There was one night where they mixed up my bed, assigning another guest to it without telling me. It was sorted out the next day, but it could have been avoided.

  • Great hostel. Great town. Do something about the consumption of wine etc, more leeway is needed. I enjoyed my stay. Cyril/Homer.
