Eugene Whiteaker International Hostel Reviews

Regardless of why you want to stay in Eugene (maybe a college visit, sporting event, or a good night's rest between Portland and California), spending the night at Eugene Whiteaker International Hostel will enrich the unique culture of your visit.

The Location

As the name implies, Eugene Whiteaker International Hostel is in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene. While it's a couple miles away from University of Oregon and other attractions, it still has the vibe of an artistic college town. A few restaurants and other businesses are less than a block away.

The hostel is very easy to get to by car, and street parking is free and abundant. If you prefer to travel on foot or by bike, you can safely and easily get across town by using the Eugene Riverwalk. This trail/bike path is less than a mile north of the hostel, with access points to parks, businesses, and the university.

Rooms and Bathrooms

When it comes to rooms, Eugene Whiteaker International Hostel has male, female, mixed, and private options. Dorms have a couple bunk beds (the capacity for most of the rooms is four), with bedding included. Guests are given a key, with which they can choose to lock the room. Large cabinets are provided to store belongings. The rooms are kept very clean.

Both en suite and separate bathrooms are available. While clean and fully functioning, the only downside to the hostel is found in the bathrooms. They can be fairly small without many places to hang towels or set toiletries down. The tub in the female bathroom drains slowly, so you may be standing in several inches of water while showering. Other than that, they do seem to make the best out of the footprint of the building when it comes to bathrooms.

Common Spaces

Common spaces are abundant. The backyard is a popular hangout in good weather, and is filled with eclectic art and the only smoking area on premises. The large kitchen includes everything you need for cooking and food storage, computers, a dining room table, games, and art supplies. Between the backyard and kitchen is another hang-out room with couches. Want a quieter area? Upstairs there's a reading room; plenty of reading material is found throughout the hostel. Wi-Fi is also available everywhere.


Despite how well known the Oregon Ducks are, it's surprising that this hostel isn't known as the go-to place for Ducks fans and prospective college students. It is, however, a highly recommended accommodation that offers a great value for its services!
