My only issue- and its not a big one- is that there was no duvet for the comforter. That is, you just got a flat sheet and a comforter which was used by everyone. Wouldn't be a big deal except everyone throws off the flat sheet while sleeping so you are sleeping under a comforter used by lots of people. Other than that though, great hostel with a cool vibe.
The staff at this hostel were awesome, know lots about Seattle. The place just has an awesome atmosphere and free breakfast is always good
Regardless to the horrified mammal organ paintings on the wall (NO, being weird is not art!!! ), the biggest problem is in the external surrounding- numerous pubs around the hostel. You won’t get any peaceful moment while your brain needs a rest at night. If you prefer a sleepless trip in Seattle, why bother to stay in a hostel for a bed! I originally reserved 7 nights but moved out after 2 nights stay, and lost the rest of my booking deposit.

Great hostel you are running. No complaints. You have GREAT staff. KC (Kacey?) and Julia very very nice. Good suggestions of things to do. Very accommodating. It really seemed that everyone there was HAPPY to be there. THAT is what MAKES the atmosphere of a hostel. You guys are doing it right. This was my first time in an American hostel and I was a bit nervous about it. No need to have been though. You are up to European standards. (And better than some I have stayed at in Europe, lol.
super amazing staff, and I was really impressed by the complimentary breakfast and the clean washrooms. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Seattle, hands down.
great hostel. only complaint was not having plugs or a night light by your bunk :)
Great staff, nice people, good atmosphere. The location was really nice and the bathrooms were always clean. Toilets and bathrooms were always available. I had a great time while staying there!

The stay was fantastic and by far the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in, you can tell the owners take pride and the staff work hard. It was also great to see the difference that having a dishwasher in the kitchen made as all cutlery was clean and in good condition. Breakfast had a great range and the facilities on site, i.e. shared bathrooms, wifi, kitchen and the downstairs cinema as great. The only downside for me was that I do not believe that hostels are a place for children.
We went to this hostel in Seattle, the location is excellent. Our room was very dusty to the point I had to purchase pills for allergies which I had not gotten in a long time and I remain sick at this point. Aside from this the whole hostel was clean and the facilities where very good. A greeat idea: add a bathroom window or something electric to avoid auwful smells in the bathroom on the first floor as not to disrupt breakfast. I did not appreciate Juliette constantly flirting with muy husband.
City Hostel Seattle was recently renovated and offers really nice facilities. There are plenty of showers and restrooms for use on each floor. And the breakfast is provided everyday from 8-10am featuring cereal, milk, fruits and toast. The staff are really helpful and friendly so feel free to ask them anything :) I'll definitely stay there again if I come back to Seattle.
nice place! And people is so friendly. Totally worth!
I had a bad first night here and the staff was really accommodating about making the rest of my stay comfortable. The location can't be beat: it was easy to walk to the Space Needle, downtown, and buses that went elsewhere. The street outside was fairly noisy at night, though. The hall bathrooms were usually clean and the breakfast was decent. I got to meet some interesting people.
The cashier with long curls is so nice ! Hope to see him again!
Cool place in a quiet location. Close to markets and Space Needle. One of the staff sent me to 5 point Cafe for lunch, one of the best meals in an amazing cafe I've had! Thanks guys!
