Welcome to Portland’s hip and lively Nob Hill district, home to our HI Portland hostel. We're set in an elegant, clapboard building that's about as all-American as you can get, with the buzz of downtown Portland is a brief stroll away. Check in at our 24-hour reception, stow your stuff in the luggage store and head straight to the leafy gardens with their courtyard and BBQ – fill up on burgers and beers. Cook up a meal in the kitchen or grab a brew in our café, then kick back with a movie in our sociable common rooms.


No more puzzling over transport maps – our hostel is just 15 minutes’ walk from the nearest Greyhound station and 16 minutes from the Amtrak station. From the airport, hop on the red line MAX train to Providence Park Station, then walk five blocks north on 18th Avenue to the hostel. The Nob Hill district is an Instagrammer’s dream, with its picture-perfect streets, artisan cafés and affordable craft-brew bars. Stretch your legs with a wilderness hike in the sprawling Forest Park.

    Disclaimer. I was in a four-bed room by myself the first night. Only two of us the second night. Hats off to Justin who made check-in a very pleasant, and informative, experience. There were many amenities which I appreciated even though I didn't use them. Here are some of the things I liked. It's a short, pleasant, 5-10 minute walk (depending on your speed) to the Max metro red line. The facility is restricted to those who have card access. Not perfectly clean, but for sure very clean.

    One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. The building is cute, the location was ideal, the staff is super friendly and helpful, the facilities were squeaky clean, and best of all the bed was very clean and fresh and comfortable. Parking on the street was very easy and cheap. I was a little nervous about my car, since I could see glass from a previous break-in on the ground, but I think if you keep stuff out of view you should be fine, as I was.

    This was a really nice place to stay. The location is very very convenient. I personally walked everywhere since most things were less than a 25 min walk but bus transportation is also located within a block or 2 from the place. The staff was overall really nice. The space is an old house but it is very neat for the most part. They are also practicing social distancing to the best of their ability. I stayed in the female dorm and there was only 2 of us there even though the room fit 8 :)

    Nice location but parking is hard to find and the city itself is big on ticketing (obviously not the fault of the hostel). There's a bit of a social atmosphere and the cafe attached was very good. My room was clean and I was only in an 8 bunk with a friend, but I imagine it would feel pretty crowded if it were full. I would definitely stay again. Staff was super nice, enthusiastic and helpful.

    Couldn’t have asked for a better experience, except for cleanliness. They’re short staffed right now, so the bathroom in my doom. needed more attention. But, when I asked for this to be addressed staff was apologetic and attended to my request immediately. Justin at the front desk is welcoming,accommodating and knowledgeable about the hostel and neighborhood.
