I'll be in Portland from Jan. 5th-12th for an externship. The externship will most likely be in a building downtown and I'll need to stay somewhere where I can access easy public transportation. I've heard that there's a hostel in the Northwest section of the city that is pretty nice and safe. Is anyone from the area that can give me any feedback? I would like to avoid getting a hotel if all possible since I am a poor grad student, but I want to stay somewhere safe since I'm a mid-20s girl staying by myself. Has anyone had any experience renting a house for a week? I know Portland is a pretty progressive city and craigslist usually has a lot of temporary housing available. I am a little nervous to try but the money saved could definitely be worth it.

I would also appreciate any idea of things to do while I'm there. I know winter is pretty bleak there but I'm sure there's still some fun coffee shops/bars to check out.

Thanks!
