    what a cool place! unfortuantely my stay coincided with the corona virus drama. this was a very very classy hostel, awesome down comforters!, classy decorated, safe, great location, didn't get to try the restuaruant and food as it closed but the menu looked great! this place normally had entertainment, a pub and very cool social area. Kudos to the decorators.... I'd give it a 10 especially for the price...a great value all around.

    Great place to stay! In the middle of the city! Nothing better than a restaurant and a bar below where you stay! Very close to the burnout bridge to cross and hang out at the old city. Train station a block away that will take you from and to the airport! Will definitely stay again!

    Very new, and stayed out of season so slow... which I like but some like more social. All that to say, maybe the nicest hostel I have stayed at. Very cool addition to PDX.

    Fantastic place! Stayed in the communal room one night and then booked a private room next night. Gorgeous aesthetics, eclectic pieces everywhere, friendly and accommodating staff and super clean!! The beds in both rooms were so cozy and better than I could’ve imagined. 10/10!

    KEX is not like any hostel I’ve stayed in before - it’s slick and stylish with comfy bunks, spacious dorms and hotel-style shower/bathrooms. Yes, it is a bit more pricey than a regular hostel but it’s a pretty luxe experience so I didn’t mind much. The staff were great and helpful with suggesting things to do. The basement communal kitchen is cosy but could do with a few more bowls and mugs!

    I enjoyed my week long stay very much in the 18 bed room. The staff was AMAZING and incredibly helpful - even got my chapstick from behind my bottom bunk after I checked out so I was able to get it when I returned to get my luggage out of their storage space. The room was very spacious, the beds super comfortable, and my linens were changed/made every day. The restrooms are quite glamorous. There are bus stops and a train next to the hostel or across the street. I highly recommend this hostel.

    Nice clean hostel - more like a hotel. New facilities, great design. Comfiest beds I've ever slept in, in a hostel.

    The overall facility was good. But my stay was horrible. Parking is very inconvenient. Also woken up at 2:30 by a couple making an abundance of noise, turning on lights... among other things. Based on my experience will never stay at a hostel again.
