I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. The rooms were reasonable, bunk beds with fans, shared bathrooms that were quite nice. The hostel had a laundry room and area to drink and eat too which was handy. The 4 hour clean of a small part of our room where we had to leave the room was a bit... More

Pros: -Free suppers two nights per week -Free breakfast (with fruits!) -Good deals on the museums in town -Very good location -Very good bathrooms -Very easy to meet new... More

I was not expecting a nice hotel but I didn't bargain for a frat house either. I'd rather sleep in a tent then stay here again. Pro -Great location Con's -Cheap but not a good value -Mattresses were yellow foam and had no cover -Sheets and pillow case were tattered with holes -Bathrooms and showers needed cleaned more throughly and...

I stayed here with my 2 sons and found it conveniently located between old Seattle and the wonderful museums by the Space Needle. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, guests fun to converse with and the kitchen stocked for a hearty breakfast. We had some noisy roommates who came in around midnight one night, and were not very considerate,... More

Friendly front desk; however, there was one girl (short blonde hair) that was a bit rude when I was asking about the final price of my stay. The rooms are a bit cramped but, the bunks have privacy curtains and a fan so that was nice. They have a free breakfast every morning (pancakes, eggs) and the girl with the... More

As two pensioners, 65, and 67, we loved staying here. We received a great welcome and information from reception, met heaps of interesting and friendly people of all ages and really appreciated free breakfast, 24 hour tea, coffee and herb teas, free dinners on Mon, Wed and Fri, and bins of free food, clothing and toiletries left by other travellers...

I have stayed here numerous times. I have always enjoyed my time at this hostel. The staff are all great and accommodating. The location is right in front of the Pike Place Market downtown. Included in the price is breakfast and on two days of the week it's free dinner. The in house smoke room was a treat. (420 friendly)... More

I have nothing bad to say about this hostel. Great location across from pike place market, good size dorm rooms, clean washrooms, big common area. They have events they plan as well as they tell you about other stuff. The staff give great advise on things to see and do. I went on a pub crawl which was a lot... More

This was my first time in a hostel, so I wasn't too sure what to expect. It was great! I only stayed there for one night, but I was very happy with my experience. Breakfast in the morning was tasty (make-your-own eggs and pancakes). Right next to Pike Place Market, and easy to walk to Amtrak and the light rail.... More

Travelled here for a group university course in mid-late May and loved it. Could not comment on the pricing as it was all included with the group tour, but it was fully booked during our stay. Rooms: All of us were split into 6 bed dorm rooms, each has a sink but no bathroom/shower. Privacy curtains, personal lights and fans... More
