The hostel was friendly and well located. The staff were very helpful. Good WiFi and breakfast included. We had driven down from Canada and the parking was a bit complicated but easy to find...we ended up parking in the street but there are lots of other options

This hostel is very clean, well organised and efficient. We stayed in a double with shared bathroom, and never had to wait for shower or toilet. Our room was very clean, although occasionally the central heating system got a bit hot (but we just opened the window). Very easy access, both front door and bedroom door with the same key... More

Spent three nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hostel is clean, and the staff knowledgeable and very friendly. It's in a great location, easy to walk to the majority of tourist sights. Also I love the fact that every room has it's own unique artwork, with a story from the local artist. Overall the place has a great vibe,... More

The City Hostel was a reasonably good place to stay. The location is quite good, the staff were helpful and there was a great guest kitchen which almost resembles a commercial kitchen. My room was clean, the free wifi worked - I can't really complain! The hostel is unique as each room is decorated in a different way. I didn't... More

I stayed in a couple of hostels during my trip to North America (Canada & US) and City Hostel Seattle was one of the better ones. It was comparable in price to most others, had a decent free breakfast every morning, the cleanliness was better than what one would expect and the staff was really friendly and supportive. The place's... More

Clean, comfortable, friendly staff and reasonably priced. It's at best a few bucks more a night then the cheapest hostel and worth it. Great location, walking distance to the everything. Stayed here twice actually-in May and June of 2013 and highly recommend it to others in the Seattle area.

I stayed here for six nights in December 2013, and I loved everything about it. Staff is so, so friendly, the location is perfect, and every inch of the hostel is spotlessly clean. Definitely recommendable. Thank you!

2nd time staying here in 5 years. In a private room this time instead of a 4 bed dorm. Staff are friendly but very conscious about checking cards on entry for safety so I felt very safe. Multiple bathrooms on every floor and a well equip kitchen on every floor. Private rooms are very large and spacious, clean and nice... More

This is one of the best hostels I ever stayed. Everything is clean, the rooms have extravagant paintings which makes the hostel kind of an art gallery, the staff is super friendly and tells you everything you want to know about sightseeing in the city or whatever you ask for. They really take their time to help you. If you... More

This hostel stands out SO much compared to any other hostel I've stayed at before. This was the first place we arrived at in America and we couldn't have asked for a better place. We had just got off a 23 hour trip from Perth, Australia and were insanely jet-lagged. The staff showed us our dorm and showed us around... More
