Everything about this hostel was great. The staff were always available, warm and friendly. The daily breakfast that the hostel was provided was much appreciated and allowed me to spend more money in Seattle. I have no complaints and will return again.

Definitely recommend staying here. It's at the heart of downtown Seattle, access to a lot of restaurants and fast-food joints. Price is relatively modest, but love the amenities that the hostel provided. Want to be part of Seattle? This is the place to be in.

I had a wonderful visit and the staff and the scheduled opportunities for events made my visit to Seattle amazing! I experienced parts of Seattle only someone who lives there can proudly show off. The location is ideal for experiencing the best of Seattle, amazing things all within walking distance. The facility and staff are top notch! I will stay here again for sure!!

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.

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.
