Why stay in Portland?

Portland may not be Oregon's capital city, but it is certainly the state's most populous city and its most visited. With a very pedestrian-friendly downtown and a laid back (and somewhat eclectic) culture, it can be an interesting city in which to spend a few days. This is especially true if you are into microbrews, coffee, skiing, dining out, hiking or cycling - all of which are popular and well-loved in and around Portland.

Portland is not, however, the tourist attraction that some of its western neighbors are, so it only has two hostels. The two hostels are located on opposite sides of the Willamette River, which runs through the city center, though both are right on or very close to public transportation so both are well suited to travelers without cars. Portland's Northwest hostel is near two of the trendier areas of the city, NW 21st and the Pearl District, as well as walking distance from downtown. The Hawthorne hostel is in the city's more bohemian area. Both are close to plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Those with a car - or those who opt to take organized day-trip excursions - can get out of the city and explore the abundance of nature that surrounds Portland. The Columbia River Gorge to the north is a local favorite for all levels of hiking trails, as well as world-class wind surfing. Nearby Mt. Hood is famous for its year-round skiing, but of course the best powder is found in the winter. Mt. St. Helens is just across the Washington border, but is an easy day-trip from Portland and is great for summertime hiking. Central Oregon is home to one of Oregon's fastest-growing communities - the city of Bend - and the state's best rock climbing at Smith Rock. And the Oregon coast makes a great day-trip, rain or shine, because there is nothing like a hot bowl of clam chowder to warm you up on a cold day!
