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.

Rooms and Dorms

You can choose between our dorms (if you’re feeling social) and private rooms (if you like your space). The hostel's in a quiet neighbourhood so there's no need to worry about noisy neighbours. Security lockers in the rooms are big enough for your essential stuff and linen is included. There’s free Wi-Fi, too, so you can unwind with your favourite show before bed.

Extras and activities

Our friendly staff are always happy to recommend places to explore. And our free city maps have all of the highlights so your data can be spared when you’re out and about. Free artisan bread is on hand to set you up for the day. Drivers can park on the street outside for just $5 a day. Our events, including pub crawls and walking tours, are free and regular, giving you the chance to get an insider's view of Portland.

    I sprained my ankle within a few hours of arriving in Portland and the staff we’re great for helping me replan my trip to involve more low key adventures. They also had some ice packs and Advil on hand that they gave me to go which was so appreciated. I ended up on cannon beach, leg propped up with blankets and ice packs tied to it. Not the adventure I expected but still great and way better then cancelling to go home.

    This is a very clean, high quality hostel with great service and awesome staff, that is pushed into greatness by their truly amazing cafe. It serves food and drink including gourmet burgers, beer, wine and kombucha from early morning to late night, and has a great vibe to come home to or to start your day. It's lively but never too crowded for guests. We almost didn't leave. :-)

    Such a great find! They have a great location in Portland, a Cafe with pretty great food, the free bagel (plus coffee or juice) is a clutch start to the day! I stayed in a 4 Bed Room and found it to be a great experience. Also, the storage before, during, and after your stay (they let you store stuff on both your check-in and check-out day) is fantastic! Finally, they have a lot of great community space, and fantastic events. Best hostel stay yet!

    Nice multiple building complex. Main building had registration, a nice cafe and sitting area. other buildings had kitchens. Place was well maintained and clean in a nice residential area with other cafes and restaurants in the area. Weak points were the lack of parking and not enough bathrooms per number of guests ( A U.S. hostel thing?) I would stay there again.

    The location for this hostel is great, we walked pretty much everywhere. The rooms are also pretty spacious for a 6 bed dorm, however the beds were quite squeaky which was a bit annoying. I really liked how it was attached to a cafe and that was where breakfast was served, it added to the atmosphere for sure. Overall, would recommend!
