Hostelling International - Northwest Portland Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2017 via mobile

This Hostel/Guesthouse offers a range of rooms. I stayed in a small private room with a single twin bed. It was clean, comfortable, and no frills. The shared bathrooms were also private/single use with locks, so it felt like staying at a private residence. Towels are included.

It is located near popular shopping and restaurant areas. Very little wait for an Uber and walking distance from the train.

I highly recommend for the value!

I was only there one night, but if I had stayed longer, I might have participated in the regular group activities they have planned during the week.

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 3 nights. Good private setup - much prefer 2 bunks end to end rather than 2 bunks next to each other where you can stare into your bunk neighbours eyes upon waking up. Breakfast was regulated with 1 bagel and coffee/tea/juice + 1 refill. On site bar/cafe, but you were also able to drink your own alcohol in the courtyard out back. There were crates of free baked goods in the kitchen one day (pastries, breads etc) which may be a regular thing. Quiet and clean place to stay, one of the better hostels in the US.

After hosteling for over two decades, I can say with assurance that this was one of my more pleasant experiences. I stayed in a private room and, overall, it was not exactly a classic hostel experience -- I didn't strip my own bed and take my linens to a communal laundry basket upon check-out. My room consisted of a wonderfully comfortable bed positioned right by a second floor window that looked out through tree branches onto a scenic vista. I woke early every morning to observe the sunrise. Simply lovely! Room also contained a desk, a floor lamp, a chair, and a small bedside table. The rooms on our floor shared three bathrooms.

Upon check-in, I received vouchers for a free breakfast beverage and a bagel. Hostel guests have their own lounge and outdoor courtyard in which to eat, relax, and one night even enjoy a small concert. The hostel cafe also serves lunch and dinner. They make a mean hamburger.

The hostel is within walking distance (about 10 minutes at my pace) from the red MAX train line, up a gentle hill. There is a Trader Joe's not too far away if you run out of supplies (the front desk stocks travel size toiletries at rock bottom prices) and the Mission Cinema is just down the street. $4 movies cannot be beat.

I need to mention how absolutely lovely and helpful every single person working the desk was. Usually at hostels, one encounters at least one grumpy front desk staffer, but not this place. You all deserve a gold star.

Room Tip: Private room on 2nd floor over the front door not good for light sleepers or those who wish to go to...

I had a wonderful expericence in this hostel. The beakfast was good, the facilities were really nice and clean. The hostels activities were good and a nice way to meet people and get to know the city. They even have a secret garden to hang out in with fellow hostellers. The staff was nice and helpful. I will come back.

This is a nice hostel within a walking distance from the Greyhound bus stop (15-20 mins walk). The hostel staff is good, special thanks to the friendly housekeepers over there. Breakfast was included, ( a beverage and a bagel from the café attached to the hostel). overall the hostel is very clean, I have seen housekeepers cleaning bathrooms, common areas and rooms everyday of my 4 nights stay.
They offer a different activity everyday to discover the city or have a drink in one of the many breweries in Portland ( tour or activity can be cancelled if not enough persons are registered though).
Overall I would recommend this hostel.
