The Hawthorne Hostel in Portland, OR is one of my favorite placs. Why? Because on any given day, it's buzzing with people looking for good times, excellent conversation, and the whole structure works as a eco-friendly place. It's got an earthen roof, rain barrels, tents out back for the folks with lesser income, and great buffets on Sundays called Gracie's Lunch.
Every city should have a Hawthorne Hostel. Check out some other cool places in the Traveling Zoo
Meanwhile, it's time for a ride!
