Doesn't have to do with the service at Hostel. It's the location. Too many sad homeless lying on the sidewalks,vslerping in the cold, November rain while luxury cars of I guess local Seattle residents are parked in crowded parking lot around the corner. Have to pay UD$20 for overnight parking. There were too many international travelers and domestic US travelers in this extremely crowded, full hostel staying Saturday after Thanksgiving. Nobody answered door or phone. I couldn't get in.

Overall, the were friendly and helpful. The hostel is kept clean. It is a bit dated but is well maintained .They have key card security.. The rooms, kitchen, & breakfast were all good. As for the location, perhaps at one time it was good as it’s by Pike Place Market but sadly the area is sketchy and less safe. Our car window was smashed (nothing taken) in the parking garage that hostel guests get a discount in. Don’t leave your car there. That experience put a damper on the trip.
