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

This is an excellent hostel. Great location directly across from Pikes Market Center, free pasta & meat sauce dinner, comfortable beds with private storage area. Meet some really nice people. Hey Bees Knees & Danta. I really liked the curtains for privacy on each bunk. Couldnt ask for more in a hostel.

Great hostel conveniently located right across the street from the Pike Street Markets. Enjoyed that the bunks had heaps of privacy as each bunk has curtains, its own power, a fan and a reading light. Only bad thing about this was that everyone had their curtains closed and kind of kept to themselves. The hostel also seems to have events... More

Having stayed at the Green Tortoise Hostel in San Francisco I had high expectations for their Seattle hostel and I feel they were fully met! I have stayed here on multiple occasions at this point (basically any time I am staying the night in Seattle). The hostel is located just across the street from Pike Place Market and its many...
