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

    Perfect location for a baseball game. Very clean and friendly staff. Appreciated the details of individual lights, fans, and outlets per bed. A small shelf would have made it perfect.

    Great place to stay. Good places to eat in the area and not far walking from the city centre and the train station is right around the corner. Really nothing to complain about the hostel itself; very nice staff, room, bathrooms, kitchen etc.

    Nice hostel in China town located not far from the bus/ train station. There are other hostels that are more central towards pike place markets if you are here to party but this is fine if you are just passing through or are arriving late from another destination. The hostel is a bit confusing to find as it is not advertised outside the property - just look for the hotel!

    Dirty hostel. Elevator is not available for guests most of the times. Bathrooms are dirty. Breakfast hours are very bad (6-9 am). And the worst, they charge you 5 dolars to keep your luggage but they let you know this once you are checked in, so you don’t have any other chance. Should I knew this beforehand I would definitely not book it. One of my worst experiences on a hostel. Definitely don’t stay here.
