I almost sprained my ankle on cracks in the dimly lit sidewalk. Way too expensive, dank, dark and freezing. Dinky bathroom, rude immature, female workers (except one male) who do nothing for you but collect your money and complain about your cleaning your dishes. You have to pay for coffee, basic White flour pancake breakfast. No guest laundry. No activities....

My daughter is currently staying at Eugene Whiteaker Hostel and is loving it...so much that she extended her stay as it is very welcoming with great amenities and a caring community atmosphere. The staff is awesome, to name a few: Mac, Sally and a nice girl from Australia. She highly recommends and it is also in a great location. If...

The title says it all. I enjoyed this place very much. Breakfast is included and the price is quite reasonable! I had a single room in a the other house (not the main one) which is around a 10 minutes walk from the main house where you have breakfast. In my house, there was a beautiful little garden. Lots of...

It's an incredible, pet-friendly, no judgements place. Mack and Oso where incredible hosts. Breakfast was sufficient (Great coffee!) It's location is perfect, its a couple blocks from Restaurants and carts, so little noise. And a couple blocks from several bus lines.

Hands down one the best hostels I have stayed at, and I have stayed at my fair share... Came for the good bed and convenient location but stayed for the people! There are always people to hang out with, either chilling in the garden, playing gitar, doing yoga or stargazing. The vibe here is simple- Life is good. The house...

This is a great Hostel, fun people stay and work here. The bed rooms, kitchen, and bathrooms are very clean! You get a fresh towel, a house key, and clean bed coverings when you check in. You pay a $10 deposit that is returned when you depart. You have full use of the kitchen, there are plenty of clean dish...

Bonus points for the location and overall vibe! Stayed here for one night in a private room. It was our first visit to Eugene and we absolutely loved the area around the hostel! It is located in a leafy residential area of town, full of colourful houses and street art. Although it's not an urban area, there are great breweries,...
