Don’t wait ’till it’s too late! Reservations are accepted by phone, mail, or email.  You can even use the Book Now link to HI Hostels (for reservations 48 hours or more in advance). You can book for reservations less than 48 hours in advance by calling us directly. Sometimes we may be fully booked online, but have availability, so it’s not a bad idea to call us directly. A Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express, or money order in the amount of the first nights lodging fee will hold a reservation. Should plans change, you need to cancel 24 (48 for a private room) hours in advance or your card will be billed for the first nights stay (first two for private room).  Please note that a reservation is not confirmed until  you receive a response from us, and check below for everything to include. Groups- please see bottom for reservation procedures. Linens are included in the rates, but the lodging tax will be added at check-in (12.5%)*.


*PLEASE NOTE EFFECTIVE JULY 1st- Lodging tax will increase from 12.5% to 13.3%

Check in is from 3pm til 10pm. Be sure to be checked-in before 10pm! The front desk will be closed and the door will be locked . Once checked-in, there is no lock-out so you can come and go as you please.

Groups: get member rate of the dorms per person, including extras (see below). Sorry, but no groups May-September.

Bicyclists: We offer a $5 discount per night for self-supported (not part of an organized group) bicycle tourists. This means you must be riding your bike into and/or out of Portland. Sorry, but bringing your bike on Amtrak, Greyhound, on an airplane, or the back of a car and just riding around town doesn’t qualify for the discounted rate. Get the discount, then get to the shower!

You can email us ( or call us at (503)236-3380 if you have any questions.
If you would like to make a reservation via e-mail please use the following secure form.  Keep in mind:
1-It is always best and more efficient to call the hostel directly for the most up-to-date availability and information.
2-The reservation request is only a request, it doesn’t guarantee a reservation.

3-We don’t accept reservations requests within two days (48 hours) of the date of you arrival, meaning the date of the request has to have at least 2 days notice.


4-For the “Request a Reservation” form and email requests: Please remember that you don’t have a reservation until you have received a confirmation e-mail. If you reserve via phone, there is no confirmation email unless specifically requested.
5-The hostel isn’t responsible if you haven’t received a confirmation e-mail.  Many e-mail accounts will block e-mail unintentionally as spam.  We recommend that if you haven’t heard back within 24 hours of the reservation request to contact the hostel ASAP.
6-Please click the Request a Reservation button below and fill out all of the information on the secure form:
  • your name
  • phone and/or e-mail address
  • credit card # with expiration date and name as it appears on the credit card
  • date of arrival & how many nights you are staying
  • how many people & their gender(s)
  • If reserving a private room for 2 or more persons, whether you need a double bed or separate beds

NOTE: Please DO NOT use the “Request A Reservation” button for inquiries that start 48 hours or less from now. This means reservation requests for today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow. We cannot guarantee we’ll be able to respond to you in time!  Please call us directly at 503.236.3380 or toll free in the US 866-447-3031.
