Rooms and Bathrooms
Each room is so unique, you could stay multiple times and get a different living experience each time! The hostel was formerly an apartment complex, so each apartment unit has two to three rooms and at least one private bathroom, along with a kitchen and living area. Unlike many hostels that display blank walls, each room is beautifully decorated. Keys are given to guests for their unit and room. Bunk beds, single beds, full beds, and queen beds are offered. Private rooms are also available.
Ashland Commons is ideal for groups, as they can rent out an entire unit for themselves, but it is also good for individual stays. Although there are no common spaces where everyone can gather, each unit has a kitchen and living area with television, games, books, and local travel information. Wi-Fi is available and free. There are a variety of people who come to stay at Ashland Commons, many who come to see a play at the famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival. During the school year, there are many students on extended field trips, as well as Pacific Crest Trail backpackers and more urbanized backpackers from across the United States and around the world.
A stay at Ashland Commons not only guarantees a restful night's sleep, but also the opportunity to experience a unique culture found only in Ashland, Oregon!
