    I was stuck in Seattle on a long layover, so I was really just looking for an inexpensive place to get a decent meal and a good night’s rest before my flight. The place had a lot of charm. I wish I had more time to just look around and hang out. I had a LOT of fun just within walking distance. I’m gonna have to come visit Seattle on purpose sometime!

    Wonderful place. Books out 1-2 months. Found vacancy online when I couldn’t get one over the phone. We were on the third floor and there is no elevator. the staff was kind enough to carry our suitcases up and down due to my arthritis & bad knee. We had a private room and it was a huge bed not a full which we expected. No conditioning of course but had Fan in the window.

    Really good security in terms of who was entering and leaving the building. Was a very nice stay and local to the City sites in Seattle. All staff were extremely friendly and wanted to help.

    Overall great hostel with an amazing location in downtown Seattle- easy walk to the market, art museum, space needle/ museum area and/ or an easy bus ride anywhere you'd like to go! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast was a standard coffee and toast. The staff was friendly! Be sure to bring a towel if you don't want to pay the rental fee. There are also decent sized lockers in the dorm rooms, so good idea to pack a lock although overall security at the hostel was good.

    Good spot! Best part of the hostel was definitely the location. I walked everywhere from the hostel. The morning breakfast was also a nice plus.

    I enjoyed my stay in Seattle. I think I was unfortunate with the roommates I was with - weren't around and not much effort from anyone into creating an atmosphere outside what you set yourself, which was a little frustrating. Small lockers fit a backpack only (if that) and not much room in the room for a suitcase (couldn't fit under the bed). Staff were awesome and breakfast and coffee was a good touch also. Thanks for having me to stay
