Accommodation: 6-bed mixed gender bunk room in the Alberta Arts District--the center of all that's weird and wonderful about Portland.

Come hang out at our guest house and wander Alberta Street...it's a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants. We've got world famous pie, 5 kinds of Thai, an amazing tea shop, vegan bakery, co-op and guitar shop within a few blocks.

  • This place was great. Superb location on Alberta St, nice rooms, and a cozy kitchen and living room area. Rochelle was always very responsive in her messages and everything went off without a hitch. If I'm ever in Portland again, I'll be sure to look here first!

  • Place was exactly as described in an excellent location in the Alberta Arts district, as well as walking distance to public transportation & a bike rental spot.

    Rochelle and her team at the Inn were friendly and accessible. The place itself has charm with a lot of artistic flair. They had hot tea on hand, a beautiful porch to unwind after long days out in the city, a kitchen with all the necessary kitchenry, and interesting folk from all over staying there as well. The list literally goes on, it's a neat little spot.

    If you're wondering where to book a place when coming to Portland look no further. THIS is the place.

  • Rochelle was awesome and the room, as well as space provided, was wonderful. The room was quiet and clean, as was the rest of the house. She was always extremely easy going and willing to help us out with any questions we had. We could only recommend this place to anyone and everyone visitong Portland.

  • I have to say, I was really surprised how much I enjoyed staying here. It turned out most of the people staying at the hostel were 20-somethings all in the art/ design world. As a designer moving to PDX, it was great to meet new people, go out for drinks and overall just soften the sometimes crushing realities of finding a place in Portland.

  • This is a great spot in the heart of the Alberta action. The house was a quiet respite for me- a place to rest my head and sip some tea in comfort during an otherwise busy time. Rochelle is still hard at work on the house and the operation of here Inn, but it already is a great place to stay. Look forward to staying there again.

  • Rochelle was a great host! She was in touch with me well before the date of stay and helped me throughout.
    The room was super nice, with a really comfortable bed and attached bathroom.
    And the street, Alberta St, is just fantastic. Ended up spending almost all of my daytime just there! The coziest sun soaked tiny little places playing the best soul music. And this Indian restaurant, where the decor and its attention to detail just makes me so proud :D
    If you're doing Portland, you need to do this street. And if you're here, go with Rochelle. I know I will :)

  • The hostel was great! The room was comfortable and cute, and the house was beautiful & warm. Rochelle was a great host, communicative and respectful. I really enjoyed my stay here.

About
“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle Bought a ticket to Portland in 1990 upon returning from England and haven't left the Northwest since. There were extended stops in Bellingham and Castle Rock, WA, and houses all around Portland, though now I can't imagine living in any neighborhood besides the Alberta Arts district. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushes the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further. Our house is in a fabulous spot right on Alberta Street. Great food, art, yoga, and shopping abound for all budgets. And please don't pass on the pie at Random Order, less than 2 blocks away. Pie hater, I, and still it's divine! There's a nearby bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks. Currently we have an artist in residence expanding our artification. Right now, he's creating a mythic tree mural in one of our guest rooms. In the summer, look for our new and colorful patio! I'm a storyteller, currently writing a musical and hatching ideas at the intersection of art and activism. Portland is a great place for creativity - full of quirky, wonderful people, beautiful natural spots that feed the spirit and loads of cultural offerings.Must visits on my list include the Gorge waterfalls and Powells books - the ultimate planetary bookstore (at least in this galaxy). I think one of the best parts of traveling is feeling welcome and comfortable wherever you land. When I'm on the road, I steer toward cheerful, friendly spots with just the right mix of privacy and community. Living in England cemented my fondness for guest houses. Those happy stays in cozy homes primed me to seek out similar accommodations whenever I travel. While raising my son - he's off to college in western Mass - I wanted to fill him up with plenty of road time. We twice twirled the US and trekked a time or two to Europe, Mexico and Central America. I think travel is a priceless gift to children and if you're traveling with kids, I'll be delighted to welcome them as guests. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories - but only if you want to share!
