The Eugene Hostel was built in 1930, upgraded in the mid-60’s and newly remodeled in the spring of 2006. Our Hostel is filled with colorful art and fun musical instruments. Guests often say that the Hostel feels like their “home away from home” with a relaxed and welcoming vibe. Owner Mac and his trusty dog Oso have run the place for almost 10years.

Most of our staff are travelers too! Through our work-trade program we get to meet and work with people from all over the world. We pride ourselves on being staffed 24hrs by awesome people.

The Hostel works to be sustainable by making our own non-chemical cleaning products, growing food to share, composting & recycling. 

Take a look through our website and read about our rooms and events as well as info about the Whiteaker neighbourhood. 

We look forward to your visit!
