Liked: Very clean and safe. Good walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. Hostel seemed to offer tours and activities on most days.

Disliked: VERY anti-social. No drinking (except in the courtyard, which closes early) and no noise after 10pm. Maybe we just went on an off-week but everyone staying there was more interested in their tablets/phone than actually interacting and talking to other guests. Very odd feel to this place. They also slapped us with extra tax. Every other hostel we booked with hostelbookers, specified there would be tax payable on arrival but not this place.

Liked: This was a great hostel in a good location close to everything we wanted to see. The kitchen was fully equipped and really good. The breakfast was really simple – just bread and jam, but as there was a kitchen we made our own food as well so it didn’t matter. The bunk bed dorms were fine and had lockers in the room. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The location was great.

Disliked: They make you pay extra for basic essentials like towels and parking, which, for the price, I could've just gone to a little motel. The hostel is expensive considering it offers less than a cheap motel where my friends and I could've slept in our own room. The point of hosteling is to make it cheaper to travel, and HI-NW PORTLAND doesn't if you're more than one person.

Liked: Great location, beautiful main building, helpful staff, comfortable space.

Disliked: The only thing really was the funky smell permiating the dorm building. Be nice to use some aromatherapy to mitigate the problem. Also the messiness of other guests but thats not the fault of staff.....its a personal thing.
