Welcome! We have both shared and private guest rooms to serve you!

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. Catch a flick at the Kennedy School or live music at the Alberta Street Pub or Alberta Rose Theater.

Every Last Thursday, we have a freewheeling art festival on the street. Last Thursday is a rich tradition where it's free to vend and attend. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, Native American drumming circles, fab art and funky attire right outside our front door!

We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated biking boulevard. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, Lloyd Center Mall, Convention Center and Light Rail and less than 15 minutes to downtown Portland.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Absolutely awesome place to stay! I booked it super last minute, literally halfway through my flight to Portland from Atlanta, and Rochelle was very quick to respond and confirm my booking. She provided really helpful information on how to get to the house from the airport, clear details on where my room would be once I arrived, etc.

    Very clean and comfortable house. I was one of only 2 or 3 people staying there at the time, but even if it had been full it would have been a wonderful place to stay. Full kitchen at your disposal, warm shower and space heater for those extra cold mornings, comfortable beds and clean towels available complimentary. I really enjoyed the full sized living room for my early morning reading and daily adventure planning.

    Lots of great places to eat or grab a drink right by the house. Definitely check out Barista coffee shop, arguably one of the best coffee shops in Portland. Downtown Portland is just a quick 20 minute bus ride away, and the bus stop is right across the street from the house.

    I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay at Rochelle's guest house. If i'm ever back in Portland I will definitely stay there again. Thanks for making my stay so amazing!

  • Although I am a frequent hostel user, I was nervous about reserving a spot in a 6 bed coed dorm that's not managed 24/7. However, after finding the Inn, giving myself a tour, and meeting some fellow guests, my fears were somewhat relieved. I did not meet Rochelle, but she did communicate prior to arrival. I was thankful for space to relax and read, cook dinner, sleep surprisingly well, and get clean and ready for the next day. The Alberta Arts district has a lot to offer and left me feeling inspired.

  • I truly loved staying at the beautiful early 20th century "Red House" in the heart of the bustling Alberta Arts District in walking distance to a great food co-op, bicycle shop, food carts, cafes, bars, stores, and much more. The house is very tastefully decorated with a nice mix of traditional and modern furniture that go well together. The house exudes an air of comforting old world charm and is the type of housDistrict in "This Old House" or some similar show or publication. I have met some great people here from diverse backgrounds and really enjoyed the overall ambience of the hostel. Rochelle was very accommodating and made sure I had a very comfortable stay. I feel fortunate to have found such a great place with such great people.

  • 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.

About
“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle I've lived all over Portland, but after planting roots in the Alberta Arts district a nearly a decade ago, I can't imagine living anywhere else. 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 great spot--so close to fab food, art, yoga, and shopping for all budgets. (Don't forget to stop off for a slice of Random Order pie!) We've got our own local bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks. Portland is rich in beautiful natural spots and diverse 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 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 lodgings when I travel. I love being able to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories. Welcome!
