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... More

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... More

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,... More
