Hosteling International Portland Northwest: Hosteling in Portland is super.

This hostel is just 10 minutes walk from downtown, and 5 minutes walk from 2 of the best dining streets in Portland.

It's seemingly set in inner suburbia Portland.

The cab ride to the hostel from the Greyhound terminal was just $8 if I remember right. A good option considering I arrived at night and had no idea where I was.

The hostel is set within 2 buildings. They obviously started with just the one building but expanded with growth. They would expand further if they could. This place was busy. And I can see why. The location is great, and the accommodations decent.

Cameron's Hostel: Great private hostel

You can rent a room in this person's home for 40$ a night. I believe is was 250 for a week. And they give good deals on longer stays. They have 2 rooms for rent. Two very nice young guys (one is the owner) live there permanently and you never see them. Except one of them comes out once in awhile to bake two pot pies. In a very quiet and safe neighborhood w/ a fenced back yard to relax in. Kitchen facilities available. If you walk out the door and go left you can catch a bus that goes right downtown or walk to the right and catch one that goes to the Max and to Hawthorne street which is fun to hang out and drink beer/shop/watch a movie and has lots of restaurants.

This is a very nice little house. You would feel comfortable to let your mother stay here. There is a nice older man that lives next door that helps with the upkeep of the house and will help you out with anything. Plus the owner lives in the house too so it is really safe. You get a key to your room and the front door. There is a tv room and laundry in the basement for free. There is a donation jar upstairs for laundry soap or if you eat a package of their Ramen soup late one night you can pay for it there also.

Hi-hostel Northwest International Guesthouse: Great hostel

I lived in Portland for a five years previously and returned to visit. The location of the International Guesthouse is unbeatable. You are just minutes to 21st and 23rd street and a small walk away to hop on free city transportation (you have to be within a certain area to get it free). 21st and 23rd street are long trendy streets (but dress is casual, laid back area) w/ many bars/clubs and restaurants. And there is shopping. Our private room was nice. One bathroom per floor 2 floors total. A nice little lounge area with helpful tips lying about was useful and deserted. Very peaceful place. I really felt like I was on vacation in my old home town. I would give the place an excellent but the stairs are steep and the place needed a bit of upkeep.

This house is not connected to the hostel but is a few blocks away. Check in at hostel.

Homey, super super location!, quiet, lounge, community fridge, helpful guidebooks with tips, free muffins/bread, coffee/tea/sodas available for small fee (on your honor).

Rock n Roll Inn: Haunted hotel

I've never stayed here before, but it's a cheap place to stay (rooms as low as $40.00) Make sure to make reservations well in advance though, there are only 11 rooms.

This place is in an excellent location, it's not right downtown, but it's only about 5 minutes away. You can catch the Max a block down the street which will take you right downtown. It's located in an area which is very popular right now with the artsy crowd. There's an art gallery, a Mcmenamins that serves great German food and microbrews and even a place where you can create your own wine among other things.

This inn is located above a tavern called the White Eagle Saloon (also owned by Mcmenamins). It's said to be haunted so watch out! It's an older building but they decorated it really cool plus it's very clean and well kept.

Skamania Lodge: Skamania Lodge - Gorge-ous!

This is a super fancy resort with Golf courses, a great restaurant with a huge fireplace, and an incredible view of the Columbia River and the Gorge. My parents and I had a great time at our Christmas lunch at Skamania.

It has everything - a little expensive though. But the view is incredible.

Hostelling International - Portland Northwest: Beautiful city, superb hostel...

Fabulous little hostel in an adorable neighbourhood of Portland. A few blocks away there’s a Trader Joe’s for all your supplies, and a few blocks beyond that is the heart of the Northwest-Nobhill district centred around NW23rd Avenue – full of great little independent shops, restaurants and coffeehouses. The hostel is well maintained with great facilities and helpful friendly staff but the location is definitely what makes it one of the best places I’ve stayed. Close enough to walk/take the bus into the heart of Portland but just far enough out to make you feel like you’re in a small town.

Really, I can’t recommend this place enough. I long for an opportunity to get back to one of America’s most attractive cities and this home from home within it.

I cut & pasted this from the HI page - but this was all there when I passed through!

Free bread & bagels
Free Portland Map
Free local calls on our guest phone
Free local and travel information
Free lockers and luggage storage
Free public transportation within the city center
Free summer concerts in neighboring parks
Free: sales tax free shopping

HI Youth Hostels

There are two main hostels, one on the west side of the city(NW) and the other one on the east side(across the river).

The NW location is on 17-18th and glisan, very close to NW 23rd's shopping area, the Portland Street car, a 15 minute walk to Powells books and next to World Cup Coffee, a primo place!

The SE hostel is in a somewhat more relaxed area, but it has many theaters, cafes and neighborhood pubs nearby. Both hostels are somewhat off the main cruising streets so noise shouldnt be too bad.

Both are cheap, in the city, have good places to shop, eat and hang out nearby.

Its also a fairly quick walk or ride to the train station.
