Stopped there on the first nights on our trip north west and not disappointed. The general atmosphere is really good and the front desk staff really nice and helpful. We stayed in a 6 beds dorm and everything was clean and kinda new. The decoration of each is really something to see and not equivalent to any hostel I done... More

The atmosphere is pretty cool and everything is very modern. Rooms are comfy enough but there are no individual lamps so the room light has to be on if people want to read or if they get in late, thus waking everybody up/keeping them awake. Also, the wifi doesnt actually work in the rooms and when it does work in... More

I had a private room for 2 nights. I had to pay for towels? That were a little gray from over washing?? Yeap. Theres no elevator,... More

The Positives are...Plenty of bathrooms with hot water and good water pressure. Plenty of plugs for all your gadgets. Good music playing all the time. A nice common room... More

I'm a thirty something solo traveler on a budget, and I didn't stay in a hostel in forever. Seattle is pricey though, so I decided to stay in a 4-bed female dorm room. I did not regret my experience! The hostel was very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and my roomies very considerate. I didn't eat the breakfast in... More

Overall this was a good experience. The location was great, you can pretty much walk to all the major attractions, and the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and you never have to wait. The room did feel a bit dated but the beds and linen were good. The general facilities were also pretty good - overall not a bad place... More

Me and a friend stayed at the hostel for 2 nights. Everything was fine. The location is great. We wanted to come back a week later and made a reservation at the front desk. We told the guy the date at least 3times. He repeated the correct date. A week later I called them to let them know we'll be... More

This place looked better than some of the other Seattle option so I went with it. I wasn't disappointed but there were something that just didn't roll with me. One being the decoration in our room. I know they're all painted my local artists, but our room just looked dirty and unclean. There was also medial diagrams of spines and... More

The location of this hostel is probably the best thing it has going for it. The staff are really helpful even though they didn't know the answer to a lot of my questions they always looked up the answer for me. There isn't a lot of seats in the kitchen so at breakfast a lot of people were sitting in... More
