too dirty and wifi doesnt work very well. 3 private bed makes me feel that we have 3 beds in a room, but obviously it isn't. suggest spend just a little bit more money can stay in much more comfortable and clean motel in portland.

Great staff, great value. We enjoyed our stay.


Cancellation policy is a bit over the top. It should only be 24 hours notice not 48. And the full first night cost should not be taken.


This is not a real Hostel... its a cheap run don hotel that charged full hotel prices for a seedy room .... one of the mattresses was ten years over due to be replaced and was collapsed on one side. There was a leak in the bathroom sink plumbing, black mold developing in the bathroom ceiling and the swimming pool was covered permanently with a tarp... hiding what I will never know. 2 beds cost $100. NO DEAL.

My friend and I stayed ther for a convention for 3 nights and it was really good. It was near the train station and close to the city and there were good places to eat around. We recommend it to anybody with a little budget. The two women that do the reception the night are really nice but the other guy was less friendly.

I was a little surprised when I arrived because what i had booked was a 6-person dorm, but the place was a motel, not a hostel so we ended up with 2 rooms. It was a bit misleading.


It was written, that it is close to the Greyhound and Amtrak Station, that is not true. Otherwise it was not a Hostel but a Hotel, and for a Hotel it was okay.


A motel that doesn't really have all the negative sides that motels usually have. It was clean, had friendly staff, and a reasonably good location in central Portland.


A motel, but above average. I liked this place


Room was nice and clean; however, bathroom was a little worn and the shower/bath need work. Although it looked clean, we had concerns. Also the sink water was hooked backwards - cold on the right, hot on the left which almost caused burns when we used the sink. Shower was hard to adjust due to old fixtures. One thing we missed also was coffee, either in the manager's office or via vending machine. Burger King is close but the neighborhood was a little sketchy, we had concerns at night.
