while doing a motorcycle trip round the u.s, both Portland hostels were fully booked. i tried this one as a long shot as i new it was mainly for cyclists. the owner, Chris was very accommodating for my motorbike - advising a sheltered area for it and even a kick stand! really clean, small and friendly. free laundry service, good quality beds and furnishings, modern quiet. in short, a good stay and good value at 36bucks.
