City break

08 September 2010 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: Location was good, plenty of restaurants and cafes close by. Only about a 10-15min walk into town

Disliked: The hostel is in an old house so it's a bit noisy and the shower was not the best, the shower curtain kept sticking to my legs.

Sightseeing & culture

24 August 2010 Romylee would recommend this property

Liked: Very walkable to a lot of the "touristy" places, with lots of places to eat and drink within a couple of blocks. Staff was very helpful, and there was free bread (and pizza, though I wasn't around for that).

Disliked: Really difficult to find a parking space! If you're not planning on going out of the Portland area, do not bring or rent a car. Portland's pretty compact and you can walk to most places anyway, and the public transportation system is really good. The only other complaint I have is that one of the women in the dorm snored VERY LOUDLY, but that isn't the hostel's fault.

Gemma Clark

27 September 2009 Gemma would recommend this property

Liked: I stayed 3 nights at this hostel. At first I was concerned as the place smelled like an old people's home. But I got used to the smell after a day. The bathrooms facilities were very old, but worked ok and were kept clean. The kitchen facilities were also clean but very very basic. You had to boil water on the gas hob as there was no electric kettle! My bed was very squeaky, but fine. No TV room or lounge place to congregate so most people chatted in the kitchens. Went on a tour organised by the hostel of the area which ended up at the Lucky Lab brew pub which was fantastic, and met some fun people. Staff very helpful. Would stay again.

Disliked: Gemma left no negative feedback.
