    The folks at AAE Portland Downtown in Portland were most accommodating. They helped me find transportation to the hospital where my granddaughter was staying. I would defiantly recommend them. Thank you AEE Portland.

    I stayed there when I was looking for an apartment to move down from Seattle. The staff were very courteous and friendly. I would certainly stay there again, if I needed to.

    Suited us fine, certainly cost wise and location was good for public transport but this was far from salubrious, albeit clean and maintained. Shower worked but no coffee provision albeit a microwave and fridge. Limited restaurants nearby although adequate if you just want to be fed reasonably.

    There should be zero reason that they don’t accept people over 30 for the hostel beds. Showing up and being over 30 and being turned away with little to no option but sleep on the street was pretty aggravating. I was told I could tent a room that was over 100$ more than the initial price I was to pay. If they’re going to have such a ridiculous policy (as if anyone over 30 doesn’t travel and want cheap accommodations) they should make that clear when booking. Also, they kept 6$ of my money. 👎🏻

    I had initially booked the Hostel and while booking it was not made obvious that the age limit is 30 years. When I got to the hostel, to my shock I realized that I would not be able to get a room there and had to book a hotel room at the last minute, ruining my trip budget. I'm not against having such age restrictions, but they should be made clear at the time of booking and not hidden away in some fine print. I had a terrible experience because of this.

    THIS IS NOT AN HOSTEL It's a shared room in a motel The heater is loud and not working well. There are no cookers. They are building a skyscraper just infron: VERY NOISY. The community area is inside the room and there are no table and chairs.

    I was met at the front desk with aggravated tone as I was unsure of my booking source. As I found my confirmation email I was lectured on importance of this. With no noted policy on the web at reservation time I was surprized I could be turned away due to age, talked to with high level of disrespect, and required to pay a deposit. . .When I alerted the company hostel world they lived up to the name and kept the deposit. Bewaire.
