We liked the neighborhood and closeness to public transport, and the Farmers Market. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and there was NO EVIDENCE OF BED BUGS.

Comfortable stay in a great, central downtown location.


There isn't a common area to hang around and meet people. The hostel is located in a central area. The staff is very helpful and nice. The toilet is clean


Everyone knows that this hostel is poor but I had no other choices since there aren't many hostels in Portland.


I would recommend you not live here


Great location in Downtown near PSU, close to Pioneer Place and the farmer's markets. Only problem is no AC so windows have to be left open in the heat, and the bar next door stays open until late so it's very noisy at night.


One bathroom for 8 people is too little. Give earplugs for outside noise and extremely squeaky bed (bunk 30 A and B). The kitchen was nice and well kept.

My friends and I stayed in a private room - four people $45 each a night. Good value for money - it had it's own bathroom, basically a hotel room. The rooms power points only worked when the lights were on and even then some didn't work.


The guy at the counter was super friendly and was very helpful. Rooms were much nicer than I expected based on what we paid.

This is just a hotel. Shouldn't really be classed as a hostel. The main good points are Pizza Schmizza next door, and a Starbucks and train stop nearby.
