Oregon Ostelli


Oregon Comments

Everyone should get a chance to visit Portland! I initially went to visit colleges in the area (Lewis and Clark was amazing, so was Reed), but the culture is really what captured me. Everyone in the area is so involved with the environment and nature, it's extremely refreshing. Don't be surprised to find that many people use bicycles or public transportation as their main way to get around -- that's just the kind of place it is!
Portland may feel small, which is part of its charm, but it is not a "small American city". The metropolitan area population ranks 22nd in the USA at about 2.2 million people.
I moved to Eugene from Kansas in '99. It was an eye-opening experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors.
Portland is a liberal, hippie town that doesn't deserve to have consumers' hard-earned cash. Everywhere I went people were rude and stuck up. It is beautiful but the people make it not worth going back. It's not a recommended stay unless you go out of the city, maybe then you will have a better time than I did!
We had the best time in Portland. We just love that city and people. We will always hold Portland close to our hearts. Thanks to the many nice people in Portland and Oregon who made our visit a nice one.
Yes, Eugene is DEFINITELY hippy-ish. I've lived here for about 18 years now. Also lots of extremist environmentalists (AKA tree-huggers) and beggars. Expect to be approached several times by panhandlers while anywhere near downtown. Eugene is nice and there's lots of various outdoor activities nearby as well as several small theater venues and the Hult Center for large-scale musical and theater performances.
