Cozy and with great staff!
Liked: Cozy living room and a great kitchen. The staff was very awesome and welcoming! Decent breakfast consisting of pancakes that you make yourself.
Disliked: $6 for a washing and drying combo is on the expensive side. The pillows were too thick for me.

Liked: Staff are very friendly and the hostel has a family atmosphere. Enjoyed the pancake breakfast and really liked that the hostel puts on local events everyday which you can join, explore local places, and meet others. This is very unusual for a hostel in the USA so I was very impressed.

Liked: Nice homely feel to the place, which was fairly evident given it is in a converted neighbourhood house.
Disliked: Check in was underwhelming and I was pretty much ignored by the young american girl who I later found out was manning reception. Don't need to be hand held but an acknowledgement and a bit of a what's what is the minimum expectation, so severely lacking there

Great place just north of...
Liked: 30 seconds from the nearest bus stop on the 4 line that goes straight to Downtown Portland, and a few blocks away from the Mississippi district which has great food. Not bad at all!
Beds were super comfy! Sheets and comforter are provided. They put me in the House Next Door (basically the building next door), which I actually preferred as it was away from the hubbub of the main house (seems it gets louder on weekend nights with people socializing). Visitors were friendly and respectful and seemed to all be people who could take a hint. The vibe of the hostel was super chill. Interior was homey yet tasteful with welcoming colors, a kind of Bohemian chic. Lots of information for travelers, like guidebooks and free maps. Bikes are available to rent for the day, though I didn't do so.
Breakfast with pancakes and oatmeal is available (though I didn't eat since I was checking out the brunch places and cafes in the area).
I was a little concerned that the dormitories were mixed, but when I asked they made sure to put me with at least one other girl. On the last night (out of three nights), everyone in the room was female! I definitely appreciated the thought. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. I consulted their list of food places in the area multiple times, as well as their map of the Mississippi District.
Disliked: I wish there was a shelf or something in the shower rooms (there are only hooks) - nowhere to put my bags. They don't provide towels or body soap, so make sure to bring your own toiletries (or you could use the communal toiletries and pay for a towel). There was a weird lack of handholds on the bunk bed, which made it a little hard to climb in the dark. There was a little bit of a noise issue (loud music being played in one of the dormitory rooms) on a weeknight close to midnight, but I think either someone reported it or they realized how late it was.
