L'œuvre de la Maison des Voyageurs
One night, I believe it was just before Halloween, there was a group of perhaps eight of us -- lively and engaging individuals from both the US and abroad congregating in the main room, warming up to a typical hostelesque spontaneous evening of introductions and good intended chit-chat. Indeed, a night wonderfully familiar to a hostel of any sort, anywhere in the world. However, this place was not a hostel, but a house of some ominous kind, and this was not just any place in the world, but an intentional exception to it -- Portland, Oregon. So then, just as what would seem to be customary to a group of traveling individuals, there began to crackle a small kindling, a central spark to what could have been a smoldering and rich slow-burning fire, swooning us all together through the night. Tragically, this was not to be; the limit of noise had been breached, as was ordained by The Rules, being dispatched to all of us sitting there (yes, sitting -- we weren't rowdy) by a slumberous young lady, clad in her nightgown, emerging from the house residents' upper story. "I can actually hear you guys talking upstairs, and it's past quiet hours." All at once, it was unanimously felt, that this was a home, not a hostel. What was the time? Nearly half past ten o'clock. Quiet hours. After the house resident left us to return to her unperturbed sleeping chambre, we were left steaming a little. After fumbling with a few trite attempts to reconcile good humor and experiment with snarky whispers, we eventually all agreed on something in the spirit of our mutual condition by somehow all saying, "why don't we go to the bar?" Is the home to the traveler the same home to the host? Indeed it can't be! Is not the nature of travel to live by the free-flowing experience of life? Indeed it must!
Very clean and helpful staff.
I stayed in the female dorm. It was large, clean and comfortable. It was like home away from home. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
