City Hostel Seattle is well-staffed with helpful and mostly friendly staff. The rooms are cozy and relatively inexpensive, and there is enough space for luggage so that you can keep your bed free for relaxing and sleeping. I found the kitchen to be well equipped for cooking and meal preparation and a great place to meet and socialize with fellow...

We spent $240 US UPFRONT on a private room that had a sink and a bathtub. There was no plug provided for the bath and no signs anywhere in the room or on the website saying baths were prohibited. We were subsequently told after the fact that baths were NOT allowed (hence there being a Bathtub/shower in our private room)....

First it was pretty hard to find as there was no sign or housenumber at the door. Staff was friendly but only did what they had to do. Beds were super soft. Rooms were quite loud. No plugs next to the beds and only in very few bathrooms!!!

Very nice hostel with super helpful and friendly staff. After a few days there it almost felt like they were housemates rather than staff. Excellent facilities (big kitchen and dining room, movie room in the basement, ...) and the cleanest and best hostel shower I have ever seen :) The shared bathrooms were brand new and huge, very comfortable. I...

Great place for adventuring, 10 min from the space needle and the Pike St Market. Beds were comfy enough and staff were helpful and always present. While they didn't always have events on they were happy to suggest places to eat and drink and to occasionally join you!

I've probably stayed in 300 hostels and this place is right in the middle. The good: great staff (although all seemed kinda burnt out on travelers), great location, affordable as far as American hostels go, overall fairly clean. The bad: just kind of tired and blah. I don't think they've really changed, or really cleaned, or spruced up, or done...

Me and my wife we stayed in a private room. The room was very spacious and clean. Even though it is a shared bedroom, there are so many bathroom in each floor that we never had to wait for anything. Also there is a sink in the room, which helps out for brushing teeth and so on. Location is perfect!...

Amazing location. Walking distance to countless restaurants and bars. This hostel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the Pike Place Market and about 15-20 minutes from the space needle. The hostel rooms were great with each room portraying different themes of artwork. The room that my friends and I ended up in was one of the human heart which...

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...

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...
