After exiting, follow the signs to Route 77, which becomes State Street. From this point, follow the directions from Downtown Portland (below). From Downtown Portland Take State Street (it's one way) and go over the Casco Bay Bridge. At the traffic signal at the end of the bridge, proceed straight onto Broadway. (Broadway also goes to the right, but straight will take you to the museum.) Continue on Broadway until it ends at Spring Point Marina (approximately 1.5 miles). Turn right at the stop sign onto Benjamin Pickett Street and turn left at the next stop sign (Fort Road). Follow Fort Road through the SMCC Campus until it ends at the water. The museum is on your right.

    So this hostel has apparently undergone a series of improvements recently such as an outdoor 2nd floor patio area~~it seems really 420 friendly.
    I got to stay for 2 nights, and got to meet some great people!!
    It's location is unbeatable; walkable to any downtown Portland location, right above some late night pizza, close to bars, food pods, etc.
    Nice kitchen area, TV, and bathroom. No complaints except it does take a while to get the water warm enough to shower in.
    For the combo of PRICE, location, and vibe, it's a pretty good bet!

    One of the cheapest lodging we could find downtown. Stayed one night. Budget/no frills in a decent/central location. Close to public transportation. Didn't notice an elevator but I think there are only 3 floors. Room was slightly larger and also less sketchy than I'd anticipated. A/C, microwave, mini fridge. Free wifi(need password to access). Toiletries & amenities sparse. Bed was OK, not overly hard or soft but kind of creeky(honestly I've slept on worse). Did not see any bugs. For downtown I thought it was fairly quiet, although there was a nearby...Read More

    It's okay for the price when your in this area but I had the creepiest room on the first floor (#29) it seemed like it was in the basement. You have to unlock ONE door than you walk into a dark hallway with no lights and five steps ahead it was a door knob that led to a room. Need I remind you only the first door locks, and a OLD CREEPY SAUNA that you can't really see inside and the handle is taken off? Never seen anything like this. Never get this room try a higher floor where it's very noisy lol

    Accommodating and comfortable for the price. In a great location and a very decent price. The staff was super helpful and friendly.
    In response to all the negative reviews: You can't expect to stay at the cheapest motel in town and have luxury amenities.

    Some of the previous reviews seem harsh. I stayed here for 4 nights as the Airbnb options in Portland weren't great and it was a good motel. Clean, good location, plenty of nearby public transport, seemed quiet at night, air con. It was also a relief to have good quality reliable wifi as I've stayed in places more expensive than this with terrible wifi signals. Staff seemed fine to me - very friendly.
