Hostel was full so they transferred my private room booking into an adjacent & affiliated hotel, the Fitzgearld. Happy with my stay.
HOTEL NOT A HOSTEL!!! It's a good hotel, good location near Seattle centre, quiet rooms etc. however, I was purposely looking for a hostel not a hotel. While my stay was fine, I feel mislead by hotel owners.
1. It's not hostel, it's a motel. 2. It's not called AAE. It's called Downtown Vale Inn. so, they are eitger lazy or lying on this werbsite. I was looking for hostel as I needed to be able to cook own food due to dietry constraints. This place was advertised as a hostel but it is a motel with no hostel facilities. 3. Getting over these nasty surprises, place is good as a motel. University location, quiet, not far from city centre 4. If advertising was HONEST from start, would like a lot
Individual cell bedrooms were novel sleeping experience. Claustrophobic folk may wish to think twice. Only comment for consideration is hall way light gets turned off for the group tours of the historic building. This makes accessing rooms very tricky as one cannot see the combination lock.
Pool was shut. Laundry facility can't be used before 14.00. Single room I had booked had no direct access to fresh air, feeling very claustrophobic. The building is what it is, but for me, I would not choose again.
Good location, good hostel, good value. It's very close to Gare du Nord which is a plus. Not related to the hostel, but beware con artists at the station. Would recommend this venue.
Good location. Close enough to grotto to walk and far enough away to avoid most of the bustle and hustle. Hotel is an old building, which is factored into price.
