Property Description

We are a clean, safe, affordable hostel with both private and dorm-style accommodations. Our historic hotel was completely renovated in 2009, retaining an old-world feel while adding modern amenities.

Located in Seattle's International District, we are only steps from light rail, bus tunnels, trains, ferries, bike rentals and more. Getting here, and getting around, is as easy as leaving your plane, getting on light rail, and stepping off thirty minutes later to walk half a block to the hostel. Later, you can travel all over from the same station.

Seattle offers a metropolitan experience in a beautiful, natural setting. It's home to nearly four million people who enjoy beautiful scenery, food, music, history and much more! Ride a ferry, wander through museums, hear live music, go shopping, hike mountain trails, and visit unique neighborhoods. Hungry? There are thousands of restaurants serving delicious food just waiting for you.

Uwajimaya Asian Grocery Store is one block away so guests can bring their own food back to the American Hotel. Or guests may eat at the many inexpensive restaurants in the area, including a bakery, noodle restaurant, creperie, the sandwich shop in our very own building--and much more! View House Rules

Overview

Welcome to HI Seattle at the American Hotel! Our building dates back to 1926 but is very much grounded in the modern day with lightning-fast Wi-Fi throughout. You'll get a free breakfast and free Wi-Fi, plus there are tea and coffee making facilities for a caffeine fix before you head out for a long day of wandering. You can flop down on our soft couches when you get back or cook a meal in our communal kitchen. Once your food's ready, head to our dining area to eat while you play a board game.

Location

We're in Seattle's International District, one of the most connected parts of the city. Within steps of our front door you'll find plenty of ways to get around, including trams, buses, trains, ferries and bike rentals. The International District/Chinatown light rail and bus station is less than 5 minutes' walk away. If you're flying in, it only takes half an hour to reach us from Seattle Tacoma International Airport – just hop on the light rail and walk half a block. We're also a 5-minute walk from King Street train station.

Rooms and Dorms

Book a bunk in one of our male or female-only dorms and get to know your new roommates. If you and your travel buddies want your own space, you can check into one of our private rooms – some of them have en-suite bathrooms. We'll provide the linen, and you can hire a towel if you need to.

Extras and activities

Our housekeeping team keeps the hostel spick and span, and we have a self-service laundry room so your clothes can be kept fresh too. We have late checkout in case you want to sleep in on your departure day and free baggage storage so you can make the most of every minute in Seattle. When you're not out exploring, you can kick back at the hostel – whether that means reading something interesting from our book exchange or playing a game of table football.

    Best ever. Beats even 4- star hotels on things that matter to me -convenience, quick service, attentive, friendly & accommodating staff. Your luggage storage was such a blessing. And the kitchen, complete and delightful to eat in.

    I love the historic building. I don't like that I'm lumped as 45+. Symptom of our youth oriented ageist society. Staff would be happy if all guests were under 40. You can just feel it in their barely covered tolerance of older guests. They do disguise it extremely well though; must take a class online. Only an older person would sense it. But there will be denials. I made my statement. Lovely older building, barely veiled tolerance of over-forty humans, which will be hotly and adamantly denied.

    So this is the first time I’ve stayed in a hostel so wasn’t sure what to expect Everything was clean, shared facilities cleaned and was nice to smell bleach. Breakfast provided was nice: breads/fruit/juice/tea/coffee. Cleaning staff friendly and helpful. Room very basic. Noisy fan. Blinds that let in light. Very noisy outside with trucks/buses making noise all night. Very close to link/subway station although 30+ mins walk from pike place. Overall average but I’d not stay again.

    Overall a normal hostel that really needs a renovation. The first (10/22) of two nights was freezing cold because the heating wasn't activated until the 23rd. That's quite late since the Temps are low already and the windows are on a level I haven't seen besides in developing nations...
