stayed at this hostel a while back. had a great experience! felt super comfortable and at home, right from the beginning, which isnt always the case going to a new hostel. literally like staying over at a friends house :) it was very clean and well run too, in a great and charming part of town. highly recommend it!
I stayed in the Traveler's house when I was traveling by myself for the first time and was immediately welcomed with such a warmth. The staff was very friendly and had great tips on how to best spend my time in Portland. The rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were very clean and everybody was respectful about quiet times. The hostel is situated in a great area, close to amazing cafés, breweries, bars, restaurants and shops and the city center can be reached very quickly with public transit. I recommended this hostel to all my friends visiting Portland and whenever I might return to Portland I plan on staying there again.
How can you go wrong with free coffee and pancakes. Staff is helpful and knowledgeable of the local scene. Enjoy social activities planned. You forget your on vacation and think you're home. Has all the amenities needed as well as a nice location. I really enjoyed my time and meet some amazing people while I was there.
This was my first hostel experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our location was central to the good action around town and was at most $15-18USD via uber. I found our hosts to be courteous, friendly, and helpful when it came to our stay and suggestions. The Travelers house was also a good spot to meet other fun and like minded people. Bonus points to this designation for having a local artist perform for us on the Saturday. She was as amazing as the experience overall. Highly recommended!
The Travelers' House is a hidden gem! Easily the best hostel I have stayed with. The staff is very friendly and engaging, the house itself felt secure and a very clean environment. There is a bus stop right on the corner that connects to the heart of the city, quite easy to maneuver even for those not accustomed to public transportation (aka myself, small town Alaskan girl).
