    Hello, Workawayers!

    Our hostel in downtown Bend, Oregon, is the community basecamp in Central Oregon -- connecting outdoor adventure-seekers over food, beer, and events. Our property includes food and beverage carts, a sauna bath house, hammocks, and firepits. You will be invited to join us for staff outings and weekly activities such as trivia, karaoke, etc. You will learn about Bend and the surrounding area and inform guests and customers on the top attractions, events, and activities.

    Bend is an international tourist destination for great outdoors and craft brewing. 3.5 hours from Portland, Bend sits below the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains along the Deschutes River. Our summer and winter activities include climbing, hiking, biking, cycling, rafting, kayaking, tubing, swimming, caving, skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. You can also grab a "passport" at our visitor center and earn prizes for touring 25+ breweries along the "Bend Ale Trail”.
