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!

It's not really a clean place. It smells funny and the area is not the best to be alone at night or early morning. They don't offer 24hrs check in like most places, you need to pay to storage your bag, things l took for granted in hostels before this one. They do offer free breakfast which is nice. In summary l would only repeat if l'm desperate.

Pros- staff were pleasant, kitchen was huge, laundry was reasonably priced, transport links were excellent, lockers were large. Lots of restaurants and bars within a close walk. Plenty of space to work, relax, watch TV Cons- the bed was uncomfortable, the pillow was too thin, no AC and the personal fan next to the bed was ineffective, nowhere to put anything in the showers without it getting wet. Not very social.

Awesome hostel! Super clean, great availability of bathrooms and showers and a really nice shared space. Stayed in Seattle for a few days, left to hike in the Olympic peninsula, and then came back. Appreciate all the work that goes into making this hostel homey and comfortable!
