Been there just for one night but I highly reccomend it! The position is great close to the market and the rooms are new and clean! In addition, the hostel organizes several activities that people can take part and explore the city with other backpackers! Just go there

The location is superb! You're right next to Pike's Place Market and a 15 minute walk to the sports stadiums. Great food all around. They provide complimentary breakfast including eggs and pancakes. They also provide a free dinner several nights out of the week. Really friendly and accommodating reception staff. I'll definitely stay here again when in Seattle!

This hostel locates in very front of Pike Place Market. So you can get a cup of one of the nicest coffee in Seattle as soon as you wake up. Services and staffs were perfect as well. Also I joined a couple of events that took place at the hostel such as Thanksgiving party. I actually got some new friends... More

I have to start off by saying that I am a frequent traveller and user of hostels as a budget friendly alternative to hotels. This review is based on my personal experienceof other hostels that I have visited (mostly Canadian). the hostel appeared to be at standard levels in terms of cleanliness, friendliness of staff and social activities. However I... More

I've stayed there last summer for a few days and totally loved it! I felt comfortable right away there. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. The hostel offers lots of fun activities like movie nights, sightseeing tours or pub crawls. That's the best way to meet people from all over the world. I would... More

Stayed there for a few days - coming in from the airport knowing absolutely nobody, this place was great. First evening they organised a communal dinner followed by a bar crawl - perfect to meet people. Oh, and they have the greatest bathrooms I've ever seen in a hostel.

I read thru many comments before coming to Seattle and I wasn't sure what to decide. Today is my second day and I have extended my stay to 3 more days. The place is nice, clean, and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is good. Can make my own eggs, pancakes .... The audience is international. I suggest this for... More
