Shame the dinner was late on Sunday, we got bored of waiting in the craziness and left. Be good if there were toilets only not full bathrooms so people don't need to wait for those having showers

Owner Comment (Hide)
Our apologies for the late dinner, sometimes things just take longer than expected. For any future stays there are two toilet only bathrooms in the lobby/common area for guests to use at any time in addition to the 16 full bathrooms with showers through out the hostel.

Perfect hostel if you want to discover Seattle downtown and perhaps meet some new friends. The staff is very helpful and gives you a lot of nice tips. Good breakfast. Well organized hostel! They have Queen-size beds, that are really nice!

Excellent location - right nice to Pike Place market and within walking distance to all of Seattle's main sights. Good wifi, free breakfast (eggs or pancakes, toast and fruit), good hostel activities available (bar crawls, movie nights, free pasta nights etc). Rooms pretty basic but decent. Showers and toilets always very clean.

Great location, staff and breakfast! Free dinner was great too and good mix of ages staying there. Only thing I didn't like is that some of the bathrooms have open showers so the whole bathroom is wet afterward. A hanging track with a shower curtain would go a long way to helping the problem. Also a shelf for toiletries in the other showers and bunks would be great. Just a suggestion on how to make a really good hostel even better.

Awesome staff and perfect location right down the street from the market. I was traveling alone and it was very easy to make friends here.

One of the best hostels around for many reasons. The dinners were great and the atmosphere made my time in Seattle really memorable. The staff members turning on the dorm lights around midnight to show late check ins to their room was the only fault I could find.

Excellent location, great staff, breakfast and free dinner. Only thing I didn't like are some of the showers are open which leaves the bathroom soaked after use. A simple ceiling mounted track and curtain would go a long way to helping the problem. Would also suggest shelves for toiletries in the showers and beds. Just ideas fo how to make a really good hostel even better.

Found it a little strange staying in an 8 bed dorm with 2 of the beds being double beds - made for couples staying in the room. Avoid booking this room if you don't want couples getting it on in your room while you sleep. Apart from that loved the free dinners. Also the Dead Guys and Parks tour was really good. Fantastic bathrooms too.

my loved staying, friendly receptionists, handsome, courtesy, welcoming and always ready to help. I love their sincere smile~ Great atmosphere, nice communication climate ^_^ I would say this lovely hostel is the most outstanding one during all the hostels I have visited. The lovely green tortoise would be my must-stay in the next visit. (*^_^*)

I would have rated their facilities as "excellent" if not for the FANS! Who installs the loudest fans in the universe into hostel bunks? I spent my first night tossing and turning until at 3 a.m. I decided to install a decibel-level app to find out just how loud the fan in the bunk next to me might rate. It fell short of Washington State's noise pollution threshold (57 db), but at 50-52 db on an otherwise quiet night...its purr was more of an agonizing, sleep-depriving roar.

Good location, helpful staff, great bathrooms. The dorms were a bit small and hot, but if you stay in the dorm room for most of your stay, you are doing it wrong.
