It was wonderful staying at the Northwest hostel. I really appreciated the offerings there including the cafe, complimentary breakfast, and walking tour. The ability to purchase a parking permit for the zone where the hostel is located made my stay very convenient.

I liked the café attached to the hostel, esp. for the weekend pancake breakfast and live music. The modern bathrooms were very pleasant. I felt the hostel staff at the front desk could have been friendlier. Location was topnotch, esp. for a hostel.

Not a light traveler, sometimes I need to put my bags away before+/after my stay. HI PDX NW has been very helpful with that. Another highlight: I had some stuff that I needed urgently while in town, but delivery had to happen before my check-in. Well, this hostel gets a gold star for receiving and holding it for me until I am ready. All that, on top of the cleanliness, convenience and excellent service of this place. If you prefer a communal experience in PDX, you can't go wrong with HI PDX NW!
