I love this hostel! Stayed here last year and was looking forward to coming back. One thing I would like to see is more of a lounge space - somewhere with comfy couches and chairs that's big enough and quiet enough to do some yoga. There are limited cozy spots in the hostel - lots of tables and chairs, but few places where I could settle in and relax. Also, I find the music in the hostel to be too loud and would love it a little quieter. I want to make sure the staff gets credit for being so warm and welcoming! I called before I arrived because my flight was landing after 11pm and I wanted to make sure my bed wasn't given away, and the woman who answered the phone was so friendly and kind and reassuring that everything was fine. I had a glass of wine and the community dinner at the hostel cafe on Saturday night, and the man behind the counter was very patient with me and accommodating when I asked to make an addition to the meal. It makes such a difference to have such nice people working there.

This was my fifth stay at a HI hostel and I do plan to continue in the future for the great value, location, and service. However there is one thing I want to bring up. According to both the hihostels.com website and booking confirmation email, "Rates quoted assume guests are not members of Hostelling International or a National Youth Hostel Association" and "A discount of 10% of rates quoted is available to members on arrival." However upon check-in I was informed there was no such discount for members. Please update this to match the nwportlandhostel.com FAQ to avoid confusion. Thank you!

Would be good to have a light by the beds. Showers and shower mats could be cleaner. Lovely staff and volunteers- v friendly and helpful.
