Top tips for finding the perfect Portland hostel
- Travelers looking to experience the liberal, artistic atmosphere that Portland is famous for may wish to opt for a hostel instead of a hotel. With a few exceptions, most hotels are relatively standard, while the blossoming hostel scene provides plenty of options for unique, social, and inexpensive accommodations. It is not uncommon for a hostel in Portland to be built into a period house, which creates a unique atmosphere and helps travelers to feel at home in the city. Many hostels distinguish themselves from the crowd with memorable themes, such as the Hi Portland Hawthorne District Hostel, which has created a name for itself by being eco-friendly, or the Tropical Guesthouse, which features lush tropical gardens and a fishpond.
- The majority of hostels in Portland are not located downtown, which can be a good thing for travelers who want to get to know the city: the best bars, restaurants, shops, and microbreweries in Portland are to be found in neighborhoods such as Hawthorne, the Pearl District, and the Mississippi District (all approx. 10m drive from Downtown). Some hostels, such as Travelers House, offer bike rentals so that guests can explore the city at leisure.
- Solo travelers looking for a hostel in Portland will love the social vibes at properties such as HI – Portland Northwest Hostel and Travelers House. Both offer small dormitories that can sleep up to four guests, and both have numerous facilities ideal for getting to know other people, such as shared kitchens and common room areas. Hostels like these regularly host events, including movie nights, BBQs, themed dinners, and bike tours.
- Female travelers have plenty of options when looking for a hostel in Portland, since most properties offer female-only rooms. The Hi Portland Hawthorne District Hostel and HI Portland – Northwest Hostel both contain female-only dormitories, and the latter also provides a 24h front desk for added security. Private double rooms can also be booked here.
