Still one of the finest hostels in the United States. The location is iconic; the bathrooms are ideally designed and private; every dorm bed is equipped with a privacy curtain and reading lamp; and three meals a week are free (in addition to the reasonably good breakfasts). My only nitpicks would be that the water pressure in the bathroom sinks is irritatingly low (presumably to save water) and the towels are not free. This is likely the best hostel in Seattle, and possibly the West Coast.

Thank you to all of the staff members. The Hostel was very clean and quiet. I love the location and the activities. The taco and pasta nights were great.

Staff was okay, some of them weren't nice and some of them were cool. Bathrooms were clean and the location was great. But the rooms are really not well arranged, it's hard to get to the top beds and they are claustrophobic. Rooms weren't well ventilated so most of the time the room smelled really bad. Breakfast and the taco dinner were really good. However, I did see a cockroach in the kitchen my last morning there... And it would be great to loose the paper towels - not environment-friendly.

The hostel made a clean and great impression from the first minute on: The staff was super friendly and the facilities modern and very clean; I liked that you have single bathrooms on the floor instead of common bathrooms. Stayed there over a tuesday night so that I could enjoy the free pasta dinner which was delicious just like the breakfast. Would definitely recommend the hostel and stay there again!

Great hostel! Best of all is the location, it is literally across the street from Pike Place Market, perfect place to be. There is food and shopping and public transportation is available all around. Most things are walking distance. Hostel is very clean, there are plenty of bathrooms, bathrooms are private. They have a beautiful dining which lets a lot of light in. I would definitely stay again.

The bed itself was fine but the dorms are a bit unlucky arranged. To get on your locker you always disturbing others or if just even 3 people have to get ready in the same time it s getting a bit enoying.

Beds were abysmal. It was constantly loud too, hard to get sleep with all the external noise being made. The front counter staff and Sasha were great. The free meals and frequent activities were great and very much appreciated.

Everything you would ever need at a hostel and then some. Breakfast amazing, and the dinner was great too. I don't think it would be possible to be in a better location.

The location cannot be beat. This is the only cheap place to stay and you are right by Pike Market! You cannot go wrong. I would venture to say if you stay elsewhere, you are making a mistake. There were various people here from normal backpackers to VC partners - very cool group of people.

Everybody is super nice! makes you feel at home away from home! Location is perfect, there's breakfast everyday an dinner 3 times a week wich helps bringing people together as well as the tours they offer.

My room with 2 bunk beds was just off the lobby. In my bed I could hear the hall door and the bathroom doors slamming all night. I also had the misfortune to have a bunk mate who was VERY disruptive.

Location is a winner. Staff is nice and breakfast is free. The wifi doesn't reach to the rooms, but is good on the common area. You will not find a better location to the cool things that are in Seattle than this!

Underwhelmed. Dirty, old and noisy.

Probably the best location for visiting Seattle since it's just beside the market and you can get to anywhere easily. They have free dinners too.
