Let me welcome you to Hostel International's Northwest Portland Hostel! For those of you who thought we have been staying in the run of the mill rat infested, grimy, germ factory of a youth hostel that you might be used to, let me show you otherwise...
"This is Portland's most centrally located hostel. You can walk to the city centre, Amtrak/Greyhound, Washington Park (Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Oregon Zoo), Powell's City of Books, museums, downtown, the Pearl, Chinatown and more. Only 3 blocks to Portland's fareless zone: all buses, trams, and street cars are free in downtown. "
Here is the main lobby.

In this photo a typical private room is displayed by one of the knowledgeable hostel tour guides.
Here we find our intrepid explorer, Renee, proudly displaying every worldly possession that has accompanied us on our travels. It's all there. Our bags all weighed in at just under 50 pounds in Detroit.
