Welcome to our hostel

Situated in one of Portland's most popular destinations, Portland Hawthorne Hostel offers quaint eateries, coffee houses, pubs, unique shops and the famous Bagdad Brewpub and Theatre. It's the perfect blend of urban pulse and friendly attitude. Our hostel does not have a 24-hour check-in desk and all guests must arrive before 10pm to complete check-in requirements.

The hostel offers a spacious kitchen and common rooms, comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi. Free Breakfast includes coffee/tea, all-u-can-make pancake, cereal or oatmeal with milk.

Outside there are front decks and a side yard for relaxing and people watching.

Please note: There is a neighborhood cat that hangs out mostly outside but occasionally comes into the foyer. It does not go anywhere else in the hostel.

Discounted bike rentals are available as well as (third-party) tours from the hostel to the Columbia Gorge, Mount St. Helens, whale watching and historic Portland. A quick trip to city attractions such as Powell's Books, the Old Town, weekend market, Washington Park and Willamette River Promenade are also recommended.

My roommate ended up being a smoker which gave me a headache. She also got up every 2 hours to take a smoke break or something which kept me up. Don’t think there is anything the hostel could have done about that but it was a damper on my experience, just relaying honest Feed back, everything else was great

The experience was ok but the attitude of the front desk staff when we initially arrived and later in the afternoon was terrible. I believe the ladies name was Maria. Initially when we walked in it was 9:30 in the morning, but without a hello immediately told us that there was no way that we could check in. Not an offer if we can keep your bags or anything. We came back at around 2:30 in the afternoon which was before the agreed checkin time of 3, but I have never stayed at a hotel or hostel who does not try to accomodate a checkin only slightly early. Instead we were told she did not do checkins and would rather add our name to a list. This meant that even being the first people on this list we were not checked in until ten past 3. 40 minutes after coming back. Her attitude was the worst I have experienced anywhere in the world and quite frankly she needs a reality check.

Hello Jacob, My name is Talbot and I 'm the manager of the hostel. First off, I'm sorry that you had that experience... There's not excuse for it. Second.. We don't have a staff member named Maria, the only female currently working with us is Rachael, and that doesn't seem congruent with anyone's past experience. I'd really like to know if you can email directly to confirm if that you are positive this occurred here, I'd really appreciate it! BTW- we have day storage no problem and are used to folks coming a bit earlier to drop off their personal items. Hope to hear from you- Talbot HI- Portland Hawthorne Hostel Manager

Such a friendly and helpful staff. So convenient on the 14 busline. Lots of great restaurants to try. We recommend Cubo de Cuba, acriss the street.

Sehr ökologisches Hostel! Keine Kästen oder Schließfächer in den Gemeinschaftszimmern. Jedes Bett hat Steckdosen und eine Bettlampe. Frühstück zum Selbermachen im Preis inlusive. Lage außerhalb der Sehenwürdigkeiten, aber in tollem alternativem Stadtteil. Bushaltestelle wenige Minuten von Hostel entfernt, Einkaufsmöglichkeit 8 Blocks entfernt.
