& Group Bookings
We are the ultimate place for groups to gather
The Black Elephant is perfect for weddings and group stays in Portland, Maine!
If you are looking to house a larger group for an event, wedding, or just a weekend of shenanigans with friends (18+ only), we encourage you to give us a call! We are the perfect spot for a memorable Portland bachelor / bachelorette party. We love to book groups and curate a great vibe and beautiful space for the ultimate connection.
If you're looking for a few rooms you can book as private rooms, without reserving the whole hostel, these ones might be for you:
FISH SIX PRIVATE DORM - sleeps up to 6
PROFESSOR BOOTY PRIVATE DORM - sleeps up to 8
ENTERPRISE PRIVATE DORM - sleeps up to 8 (in 4 full sized beds)
how to book a Hostel Takeover:
A Hostel Takeover is a chance for you, your friends, and or your family to take over the entire hostel space just for your use. We sleep up to 60! Depending on the season, rates vary from 2k to 5k per night for all our rooms, clean linens, our garden, and our team. You will not find a better rate to house your peeps in the city center. We are a great spot for an affordable and funky wedding weekend, or family reunion. Email or call us for more info!
Booking the whole space for weddings, school or corporate travel can be a lot of fun!
The Fine Print:
*We do not allow Hostel takeovers between June15th and Labor Day - Think winter, spring, and fall!*
The hostel is typically 18+, but for hostel takeovers, we make an exception!
