A mix of cozy with modern touches, this just-renovated space is what you've been searching for! Come couples and small families, it's much more spacious than a hotel room and has far more character. We are located near quaint Deering Center, right outside the hustle and bustle of the city; a short walk to UNE graduate campus. We are on the bus line with close walking and biking paths. We've set this space up for you! So, whatever reason brings you to Portland, be our guests!
“We had a wonderful trip to Portland and made even better by this wonderful Air BnB! It’s in a great location, about 10 minutes to downtown Portland, very clean, and many amenities including lots of blankets and toiletries. The apartment is great for a couple, friends, or family. It’s very nice to have a full kitchen as well! There was coffee for the Kureig machine, water bottles in the fridge and even candies around the apartment! Thank you for a great trip-would definitely stay here again :)”
This is a newly renovated apartment on the 2nd floor of my building and is above an existing Airbnb unit that has been a great hit for the past 2 years and holds a 4.5 star rating w/ over 300+ reviews! It's in walking distance to everything Portland has to offer! It's an older building and has a lot character!
“I cannot say enough to express my gratitude for such a wonderful stay at Nick’s place! I stayed at this lovely apartment during the Covid-19 pandemic and it was such a blessing. Nick and his wife, Sara were such thoughtful hosts. The apartment was cleaned with such care to cater to the CDC guidelines issued during the pandemic. The bed was beyond comfortable, and they provided a fan as well as air conditioning for those hotter days. Nick was very quick and informative with replies and as a family, they were so friendly and accommodating. I loved the tidy simplistic decor with beautiful harbor photographs throughout. Because it is situated upstairs, there is no noise from other tenants in the building. Beautiful views of the city from the many windows. The location is amazing right next to Deering park in town. The furniture is super comfortable and came with a well equipped kitchen. Absolutely loved my stay here and will certainly come back!”
Go Boutique on a Budget! The Black Elephant Hostel is a very vibrant and comfortable space with unique decor. We pride ourselves on being super clean, affordable and friendly. Our LOCATION CANNOT BE BEAT! We are one block outside of Old Port and nestled among some of the finest eateries, shopping, and entertainment in Portland. This is a Shared 8 Bed Dorm Room. Each Bed has an outlet and locker to store your valuables. You must be 18 years or older to stay in the dorm.
“This is the nicest hostel that I've ever stayed in and will probably ever stay in! Heather just rehabbed this space, there is a picture book in the lobby showing the full process, and she did a wonderful job. The decorations are unique, warm and inviting. The common area is clean and well organized. Plenty of full bathrooms to each dormitory. Staff working there are very friendly and helpful. I was worried about the bedrooms being warm in the cold New England winter, but there are individual heating and cooling units in each room that kept the room sufficiently toasty! Not to mention the LOCATION! easy walking to the entire peninsula, but all the best stuff is within several blocks. Would recommend anyone stay here.”
