HI - Northwest Portland Hostel Reviews


We are centrally located in Portland's historic and vibrant Northwest/Nob Hill neighborhood with cafés, shops, brew pubs, theatres, galleries, and nightlife. You can walk to downtown, Amtrak/Greyhound, Washington Park (Rose Garden, Japanese Garden), Powell's City of Books, Saturday Market (& Sundays too), farmers' markets, museums, the Pearl, Chinatown and more. The Mission Brew Pub Theater ($3 movies) is only one block away. Nearby Forest Park, the country's largest urban wilderness, offers great hiking and biking. If you are tired of walking, catch a bus, tram, or streetcar for free in Portland's fareless city center zone, which starts only 3 blocks from the hostel. The airport MAX train stops 5 short blocks away (get off at PGE Park).

Rates quoted are for Hostelling International members. If you are not a member, you may join on arrival or pay $3 extra per night, per person.

Lodging tax of 12.5% will be added to all overnight fees on arrival.

Registered guests have 24 hour access. Registration hours are from 8am-12 midnight.

Our hostel is housed in three historic buildings. Our main building, the Elliston, built in 1889, is a historic landmark and on the national register for historic places. The hostel features dorms and private rooms, outside courtyard with BBQ, kitchen and dining room, small coffee bar, common areas, laundry facilities, Internet kiosk, free local phone calls, free wireless internet for laptops, free lockers and luggage storage, free parking lot and free on-street parking, and free pastries, bread or bagels.

Helpful and friendly staff offer great information on things to see and do, and we provide free maps. Our information boards are updated every week. Van tours can be booked to Mount St. Helens Volcano, Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls, and the Oregon Coast. During the summer months, free weekly summer music concerts are offered in neighboring parks.
