Hotel luxury at hostel price
Ignoring the human elephant sleeping in the bunk above me, The Society Hotel's bunk room is possibly the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in (and I'm well seasoned). Some may be wary with 24 beds in a single room and triple towered beds, but you'd never know you were sharing with that many. The semi-private curtained beds feel like memory foam mattresses, all linen and a selection of size towels is provided as well as other necessities like toiletries and ear plugs. Great for anyone travelling light. Multiple bathrooms meant never waiting in line. The location is less than a 10 minute walk from the Greyhound and Amtrak stations and similar to the centre of downtown shopping so perfect for getting around easily. The staff were polite, friendly and super helpful at check in and check out. The roof terrace was an added bonus to spend the last few hours in Portland with a local beer in the sunshine. An honestly perfect hostel room I would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic hotel but in a rather ‘edgy’ area
An excellent hotel with fantastic, friendly staff, a clean and comfortable room (we had one with a private bathroom) and lovely rooftop terrace and cafe in the lobby. Only downside is the area - noisy clubs/pubs and lots of homeless people around... definitely feels a bit edgy. Plenty of police around too but I’d recommend an Uber rather than walking if travelling alone after dark. Shame because the hotel itself is great so if it was in what felt like a safer area it would be perfect.
