Second Home Hostels

Seattle, USA
77%

The hostel staff is friendly and willing to stay up for late night travelers (I got there after midnight!), probably due in part to the close proximity to the airport. They provide a simple breakfast that is available at least as early as 4:30 AM! There is not much to do in the direct area, but it's not difficult to get up to Seattle. I walked the 15-20 minutes to the airport at 5 AM alone and felt safe. Only drawback of hostel - be prepared to take quick showers! (only one when I was there

This is a fairly laid back hostel with most people sleeping in til about 10. People are quite friendly and eager to chat. If a night out in the clubs is what you desire, this a great locations, just minutes from a popular university area. Location wise, it's fairly easy to get to other parts of the city. There is a great public spa just up the block that should not be missed. The showers at the hostel were okay, but the water pressure was a little weak. (just go to the spa instead!)

Mixed dorm rooms have curtains around beds to make it as private feeling as possible. Hair dryer available is only so-so (cool air only) so bring your own if possible. Clean, friendly and suggest great bars.

Thank you very much for staying with us and a comment. I am very sorry about the hair dryer. It was broken. I have got a new one. It should be great if you come back to this hostel when you visit Osaka next time.Thank you very much again!

This hostel was very friendly and helpful. The staff was always willing to give their useful opinions, the overall atmosphere was great and allowed for the community to be open and get to know each other. Although the staff is fluent in English, they'll be patient and happy to speak to you in Japanese if you so desire. Overall, great, great great!!!! Go to every onsen you can!!!
