This is a really nice, clean hostel. The baths and bedding are clean and new, and the owners are friendly and smart. I would definitely come back if I was in the area. The free breakfast was a nice touch, and its much better than most free hotel breakfasts. Its in a good location for hiking, skiing or mountain biking.

This is the nicest hostel I have ever been. The owners were wonderful, helpful and friendly.  The house is impeccable, bathrooms and bedding were very clean and breakfast is included with your stay. I would definitely stay here again.

We loved this place; charming, clean, up the street from great bakery, and pub, and 5 miles from the Willamette National Forest- great hiking trails and waterfalls. Went to bed smelling the apricot-pecan bread that had been baking for breakfast; a complimentary fresh, healthy, vegetarian meal. Cozy, B&B style rooms ideal for reading, and relaxing, and yet, as a bonus, our 3 year-old daughter was made to feel welcome!

This is a beautiful place. It's a hostel in that it has shared bathrooms but they are extremely nice and there are 5 of them. We were the only ones here and payed for a double bedroom but the owners upgraded us to a queen free of charge. The complimentary breakfast is all homemade, vegetarian, and delicious. Would definitely stay again

Four friends and I stayed at the Guest House for one night last week on an Oregon bicycle tour trip. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by the owners, Gary and Linda, who warmly made us feel welcome. They offered a lot of great local, insider, information about the surrounding terrain, roads, and (few) restaurants.

Gary even called the owner of the local bakery (Lion Mountain Bakery) at home that evening to order our sandwiches so that they would be ready for us when we rolled out early the next morning.

The Guest House is very well-appointed. We stayed in a 6 person room (3 sets of bunk beds), which was very comfortable. Showers were plentiful and very clean.

There is a nice outdoor hot tub for use, although after the long day in the saddle and a late night at the local brewery, we skipped it and opted for more sleep instead.

Gary and Linda have really figured out the needs of their guests, which are often road cyclists or mountain bikers. For example, there is a nice large locked room for many bikes, a bike repair stand, chain lube, tools, etc.

Also, the homemade breakfast in the morning was really fantastic. Coffee was great (expect that in Oregon), and Linda's homemade granola and smoothies were very good- perfectly suited for our long day on the bikes.

I can't recommend this place more highly. Stay here if you're passing through. You won't regret it!

I agree with many of the other 5 star reviews. My friends and I just stayed here and the owners were very friendly, the food was very good the lodging was very modern and very clean, the bathrooms were shared that were very modern and very clean. We had an excellent time and would stay here again.

I love this place! It's our getaway every spring as a jumping-off point for skiing and hiking all over the Willamette Pass area. It's recently been renamed as a Lodge and Guest House (used to be "The Oakridge Hostel"), and I think that's fair. The bathrooms are shared, there are bunk beds in most rooms, but those are really the only hostel-y features; it's certainly NOTHING like any American hostel you've ever been to. Even with some common areas, the lodge feels very quiet and relaxing. This is probably due to its size. There are only four or five rooms, plus ample bathroom/shower set-up, and the proprietors do a good job of drawing in clientele that are very respectful of space. There are two common areas, one on each floor, with comfy chairs for reading, writing, or playing cards.

The breakfasts here are organic, and they 'stick to your ribs,' too; a perfect start for a day on the hill. Fresh squeezed carrot juice, Wandering Goat coffee, and homemade granola with yogurt are the staples, the second course changes daily. The proprietors are affable and knowledgeable of the area.

Prices raised this past year by about $15-20 / night for the private rooms, so they now sit at  $98.10/night for a double bed, and $109/night for a queen bed. This is still a good price for what you get (e.g., same price as the Best Western in town, and includes your breakfast--remember?), but a challenge given U.S. and Oakridge culture. Case in point, we have been the only patrons on a couple of visits.

The location is great; within walking distance to the Lion bakery, the Library, and the most famous place in town: Brewer's Union. Of course, like all places in Oakridge, you're going to hear the train. I, personally, have never been bothered by it but the hotel stashes plenty of earplugs throughout the rooms and common areas if it becomes an issue.

I highly recommend the Lodge to patrons of the area. I know I certainly won't stay anywhere else while in town.

We expected a typical hostel and we were pleasantly surprised.  The owners, Linda and Gary, were really nice.  The rooms are very nicely decorated and spotless.  The patio is an awesome place to hang out after great mountain biking rides.  Even their bicycle shed is beautiful.  I would definitely come back and stay there again.

My biking buddies and I love this place. Great service, comfortable beds and great food. No complaints here! Stay in the Lodge, ride the epic trails of Oakridge and enjoy the rest of the funky small town of Oakridge!

Looking for an epic trip in Oakridge tearing up the trails with a group of friends?  This is your place.  Gary and Lynda go over the top to make your experience special.  Not only do they provide a healthy and full  breakfast each morning, they even arranged a gourmet meal for 20 at the lodge.  Gary now owns the bbq pit in town so make sure to check that out after a big ride.  Accommodations perfect, bike storage and wash perfect, food perfect..... I guess this place pretty much rocks.
