    Can't beat the location! It's just in front of Pike Place Market, so wherever you go it's super convenient and also a lot of places to eat nearby. There is Target beside the hostel, so easy for grocery or toiletries shopping as well. Hostel is very clean including bathrooms, rooms and common area such as kitchen and dining area. Staff are all super cool, friendly and helpful. Definitely my choice whenever I return to Seattle!

    It was awesome stay. Location, cleanness, the service of stuff, breakfast,,,,,, everything was great:) I would say that I could come back to Seattle only for this hostel😊 On Sunday, we got free dinner, that was awesome too. I wish I could stay longer! For future traveler, we can borrow dryer at front. We can buy lock, soap and toothbrush and toothpaste at the front.

    Overall amazing value/quality ratio. Only two complaints: a) The small privacy curtains from the bunks could definitely use a wash, the ones from my bed smelled like feet.. b) The ratio beds/showers needs to be improved. While comfortable for the user, I think it is a very bad idea for a hostel to have complete bathrooms with toilets and washers, because turns tend to be very long. Other than that, great place with a very jolly atmosphere.

    Beds are a bit firm. Staff keep bathrooms and common areas clean. I did encounter a dirty bathroom but that was left like that by dirty people staying there, bathrooms were cleaned later in the day. Location is perfect, close to public transportation and lots of parks and museums are within walking distance.
