The Hostel Café, in Portland's Historic Northwest neighborhood, is a café and pub serving classic American food with locally produced coffee, beer, wine, and kombucha on tap. Offering healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Hostel Café is open early morning to late night, 7 days a week!
In 1998, they opened their small 36-bed hostel. Over the years, they have grown from that original building to a village of five buildings, all in the same block. Each building has its own character and special features with most built in the late 1800’s. You’ll find common areas, outdoor gardens and courtyard, two kitchens to prepare your own meals, 32 private rooms and 160 beds in small dorms. In the spring of 2017, they completed construction of their fifth building, designed and built from the ground up! Here they added the final touch to their hostel, the Hostel Café! The Hostel Café is a place for their world travelers to experience a variety of American classic meals and sample Pacific NW brews on tap. It’s a place where travelers and the local community can intermingle: the neighborhood's common room! It's a place where travelers get to know one another, share stories and learn of life in another land; a place where the world gets a whole lot smaller!
Tuesday night is live music (7-9pm), featuring local and touring singer songwriters; Thursday night is a Traditional American Music Jam (7-10pm) where fiddles, banjos, and guitars liven it up. Local beer tastings happen a couple times per week.
