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

This hostel is really good value. The beds are comfortable. The showers are clean, beds are comfortable and there are many things to do like City Tours / Pub Crawls. The staff are really kind and will help as much as possible. The night staff are just as good - very switched on people. I had a really good time... 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

After many months of hostel dwelling in Europe, I was very excited to have a go at hostel life in my own city. So a few friends and I stayed at the GT this past weekend for Sakura Con. We are never going to by back to staying at the Grand Hyatt and the like. We had a blast! The... More

Stayed here in a private room with my friend for a few days on our visit to Seattle. Rooms were a good size with a sink but I found the beds and pillows a little uncomfortable. Bathrooms were all individual bathrooms which were nice. The hostel runs daily activities which looked good but I didn't attend due to short time.... More

I heard nothing but brilliant things about this hostel and was very happy to say they it lived up to my expectations. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The curtains around the beds were a great touch in helping to get a good nights sleep. Great daily events. Rooms and facilities were very clean. 100% recommend

I am a skeptic of hostels after having a family member that owned one, but they have made me a believer that they can be safe. I loved that it is located right downtown, so we could go out at night and just walk back. When we arrived, I appreciated that it was a locked door and that they had... More

I had a great experience in this hostel. The crew was super friendly and the structure of the place was not bad at all. One of the best features were the curtains in the beds, for your privacy. The conveniente machines with good peixes are also great, not to mention the decente breakfast and fun (and tasty) free dinners. On... More
