Overall, this is a really nice cozy hostel in a good part of town. The beds were really comfortable. It's not on the MAX line, but there is fairly regular bus service to downtown. It seems strange that reception is only open for a few hours a day, but there are less than 20 beds, so I guess that makes sense. Seems a bit expensive for a hostel, but it's probably justified given the lack of accommodation in Portland.

Unbelievable location. Amazing views of the square from the rooftop bar and overall a fun atmosphere. The only windows in the room were to the lobby/restaurant below, so the room was always loud. Also, when I got there at 1:30 the front desk told me I had to wait until after 2 to check in and made no inquiry as to if the bed was ready.

The hostel was OK. Quite small, it looked like a house that someone converted into a hostel. Staff were helpful and the place had character but not a lot was going on there.

I thought this place was unbelievable value for the money. I couldn't find any hotels in Portland under $100 and this place was only $54 and I had my own queen sized comfortable bed with a large private bathroom and cable TV. It was close to the max (Portland's subway station). True it is not a fancy place by any means, it is a cheap motel. The room smelled like smoke even after being there a few days and the bedsheets smelled a bit like bleach. But for the price you really can't beat it.

Excellent hostel. Great atmosphere, good for meeting people. Bar area is really chill with good food and cheap prices. Unbelievably cheap for a clean place with a comfortable bed. A little far (30 minute walk) from the main tourist hub although in some ways this is good as it is quiet in the middle of a residential area. No air conditioning in the room, although I heard some rooms have it.
