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!

Superb

This is super convenient to nearby trains and local transit. It was my first time in a hostel, and I was impressed by how easy it was to get in, how helpful the staff were, and how nice the spaces were. Some world travelers told me this was one of the nicer hostels they'd ever been in. I'd definitely come back if I return to Seattle.

Very Good

The neighborhood can be a little rough, but the hostel felt secure and safe. The kitchen/common spaces were well stocked and comfortable. The room was on the sparse side and not super clean, but not bad. A few simple things could improve it a lot, like curtains around the beds. The shower setup also wasn’t ideal. The shower in one bathroom didn’t lock and had nowhere to change/put clothes. The shower in the other had no hot water. Overall a convenient place to stay, decent for the price.
