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 ...

I liked this hostel. Our room decoration was awesome and bed was comfortable. Staff were friendly and the showers were clean although one shower was painfully powerful with no way to adjust the pressure. We had a room facing the street which was really loud on a Saturday night. We went to sleep around 2am but kept getting woken up... More

This place is okay. Its location is good and the staff are nice. The rooms are not great. Hardly any room in the 6 bed rooms and far far too hot. The artwork is pretty cool though and each room has something different by a local artist. Not sure what happened in our room though as ours was pretty terrible.... More

The Seattle City Hostel was overall a great experience for a place to stay. The location was very, very nice and within walking distance to many great attractions and neighborhoods. It's surrounded by local restaurants and bars, so you don't need to go too far to find something if you don't want to! I stayed in a 6-person mixed dorm... More

I stayed 3 nights over a busy holiday weekend. After a frenetic check-in the place calmed down and was serene. It is well-run, clean, well-maintained. The breakfast, while cold is healthy-and included. WI-FI a trifle stodgy (but free). Towel was soft and at a reasonable price. Belltown location easy walk to Space Needle or Pike Place Market - and if... More

Firstly, City Hostel is a in a great location. It's in the middle of Seattle's must-see neighborhoods, so I could walk to the waterfront, downtown, Capitol Hill, Seattle Center and other places within twenty minutes. Loved that. Rooms were nice and clean. Beds were very comfortable. A sink and mirror were provided in the room, which is always thoughtful. One... More

Pretty nice hostel. The staff was welcoming, and let me store my bags before check in time and after check out time on the days I was coming and going. They had a cool little patio area in the basement. I thought the rooms were kind of bare, with very small lockers that couldn't hold a backpacking backpack like the... More

City hostel is the best hostel in Seattle I swear! We lived four girls dorm. There was best bed made us feel relaxing after walking down the street with heavy luggage. Very nice clerks and good vibes here. The worst thing we could only stay here one night and need to catch the flight. I promise that I would come... More
