Founding Philosophy

“A hostel for travelers, designed by travelers”

We had never even thought of the words “customer service.” Being travelers ourselves, it just came natural to want the hostel to feel like home on the road for our travelers. At a time when most US hostels locked you out all day, had nighttime curfews, rules that didn’t always make sense, and treated you as someone lucky to be staying; we wanted travelers to feel a sense of freedom, to feel at home, to be able to come and go, with no senseless rules … a user friendly hostel … no curfews, open all day, helpful and friendly staff, well equipped with a homelike feel, and lots of information…

“We reserved for two nights and stayed for three. Portland is really great and the Youth Hostel was the best we have seen since we left NY. I am really looking forward for my next stay in Portland.”
