City Repair/Village Building Convergence
The hostel participated in the Village Building Convergence in 2007. City Repair (a non-profit organization) helped organize and erect a community cob bench and bulletin board on the corner of SE 31st and Hawthorne directly in front of the hostel. The VBC purpose enhance the livability and quality of life of people in the community by created public spaces and is a good example of the community spirit of Portland.
