I had a private room, adorned with marine-themed artwork, it was like I was in the aquarium! Staff friendly, helpful and efficient - several of us arrived at once off the Victoria ferry and they were well-prepared with extra staff. You didn't feel rushed, they checked you in then asked if you had any questions. The room had a hand... More

What a great experience we had at this hostel. My hubby and I are older (50 &60) and noticed a lot of older folks at this location too. The staff were excellent. Really responsive when I emailed asking questions and great in person too. We booked a private room with a shared bath and requested one close to the ground... More

My son and I shared a private room with shared bath at City Hostel recently and had a fabulous day. Front desk staff are very welcome and inviting, and perfectly willing to share information about the area. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The shared bathrooms were constantly being clean and the shower area was... More

This hostel is very central, but that does mean it can be noisy from the neighbourhood at the weekend. The staff at really friendly and very helpful and the hostel has a nice feeling to it. Beds are quite comfy and you can hire towels for $2. You can easily walk to the waterfront but if you have a big... More

It's the best place to stay downtown. Every room is a museum gallery but with cosy beds and an view on the space needle. There is also a breakfast included, which adds even more comfort. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The hostel is situated near downtown on second avenue and very close to bars and main activities

I was female solo backpacking in Seattle, the San Juan Islands and Canada July/August 2016 and stayed two nights at City Hostel. I am older than the typical hostel crowd, so I got a private queen room with shared bath, which worked very well for me. Of course, it is more expensive than dorm-style accommodations, if you are on a... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel so I was hesitant, but it was better than I thought. 4 of us stayed in a 4 bed room. The room mural gave me nightmares but after the first night, didn't notice it as much. The rooms were so god-d*** HOT!!!!! We were all sweating throughout the night. We figured... More

The best thing about this hostel is it's location. It's within walking distance of Pike Place Market in one direction and The Space Needle in the other. My main two criteria for any accommodation that I stay in is that it's clean and that's it's secure, The City Hostel is both. We stayed in a private room with shower. The... More
