Private rooms are very spacious, though can get warm without aircon and the window only opens partly. There were bright lights that shined through the window all night and the blinds don't block it out enough. Curtains would have been better. Location is great. As with many hostels it's a shame they discriminate against men with female only dorms but... More

Best thing about this hostel is its location. We walked to the needle and other popular tourist spots such as the markets/pier etc e loved the location. The rooms are the same as what you see in the photos. No aircon just fans, beds are ok and the paint work may or may not be your thing. We stayed 3... More

Very good value for this hostel in an expensive city. We took 2 rooms, one with a private bathroom and one without. A private bathroom is nice, but you can find many bathroom in the corridors, so you won't have to wait long if you take a room with shared bathroom. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The location... More

I went on a weekend get away with my oldest daughter. We stayed in a 4 bunk dorm with a shared bath. This was my first time in the dorms. I've previously stayed in private rooms with no attached bath. The dorms were roomy and the the private bath was fine, but I would just stick with shared, not worth... More

I basically checked in after arriving via Amtrak, crashed out for a few hours got up and left for the airport by Uber so didn't really get to experience much of the hostel or the area. The hostel location seems to be near several interesting bars and clubs but was a bit far away from Pike Place Market (which I... More

Really enjoyed our 3 nights at City Hostel. The location was ideal, walking distance to Pike Place Market, Capitol Hill, Space Needle, Waterfront, Pioneer Square etc. We stayed in a private room - good size, had our own sink and space to hang clothes. No A/C though and we visited during a heatwave....!! The breakfast was really good - tea/coffee,... More

Friendly staff very clean and fantastic location. Feels like a scene out of the late sixties or early seventies. Check out the back garden out the basement for a cozy morning coffee. Would definitely stay again. Old hotel with a grungy new attitude

For what we paid, this place was an absolute steal! We got a private room without a bathroom. There was a sink in our room, which was great for getting ready for bed at night and in the morning without walking down the hall. As we read on TripAdvisor, the shared bathrooms were spotless and well-maintained. The location was fantastic... More

The city hostel is a very nice and clean hostel close to downtown seattle. Every room is dedicatet to an artist who painted its walls. There are enough and very clean bathrooms with a huge water pressure in the shower - showering replaces a massage :-D The only downside is the small breakfast, but i guess this is america ...
