Liked: The HI Northwest Hostel is just like staying at someone's home. The staff are excellent and knowledgeable. The location is great both a short walk to old town Portland and only blocks from some very nice bars and restaurants or a Trader Joes market. One of the cleanest hostels I have ever stayed at, the bathrooms were immaculate. Some good events organized in house for little or no cost. While I did not get a chance to do it was great to see the hostel giving back by having a session where guests can help make burritos then distribute them to the homeless.Definitely one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at.

Liked: Staff was great, location fantastic, super clean, plenty of bathrooms - never had to wait. Aaaaand the best bread for breakfast one can find on this side of the Atlantic (I am an uber bread snob - few breads in North America even deserve to be called bread IMHO!)

Disliked: - Constructive recommendation: Rooms could be better lit and carpet isn't the most hygienic floor option- Not a comment about the hostel, but a note to fellow travelers: I had some room mates that insisted I turn the light off while I was in the midst of packing at 10pm (which is not disrespectfully late in my books). If you have specific needs of this nature, don't book a dorm people, get a hotel with private rooms. It's a hostel!
