“good folks & good rates”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2010

I traveled with my son, daughter-in-law & 2 young grandson's (2 & 4). Had a GREAT time. The boys loved it. The common area in the back that overlooked the river even had a toy box which surprised me. How many places can say that? Not that expensive. I would have liked a tad closer to things but hey, it was a great place non the less. I would most assuradely go back!! Even by myself, in a dorm room!

I stayed at this hostel with my roadtrip buddy, while we were visiting the Oregon coast for a couple of days. First off, I have to admit that this was my first hostel experience! I had heard (and read) that this was one of the Top 10 rated hostels in the U.S. Still, I was a little surprised at the "grungy-ness" of the room. We stayed in one of the nicer rooms, which had a bunk bed and a full sized bed in it. The room was kind of dreary, and there was no soap, etc., which we were not expecting. Again - my first hostel experience. After staying in hotels for the previous nights on the roadtrip, it was quite a difference.

Having said all that, the price is what ultimately attracted us here. I think we paid roughly $60 in total for the night, which was great. The beach is within walking distance, and there is a great kitchen, living room and fire pit in the "backyard" of this hostel. I would recommend this place for the frugal traveler... who remembers to bring their own soap with them! ;)

The Seaside International Hostel is a small, friendly hostel with great staff that really made us feel at home. The hostel is walking distance to town and shops to get supplies, but also just a short walk from the beach which is the heart of Seaside.

Yes, I have to admit I would stay again. It was an interesting experience. Wonderful location. Friendly staff and interesting people from other parts of the world. A great jam session was the entertainment for my 50th birthday. A very sweet young lady from Germany, Lucy, wished me "Happy Birthday" in her wonderful native tongue. The kitchen was very well equipped.

If you're staying in Seaside, this hostel is a good choice.
The rooms are a bit outdated, but they were very clean and the staff at the hostel was friendly.
I don't see any problems with this hostel!

I stayed in the group housing room for men. They also have private rooms. The mens dorm has three bunk beds. I found the room free of odor and well kept. Common area has a full kitchen, dining area, and reading room that is also used for meditation. Breakfast is somewhat hosted with bread, fruit, jam, and pancake batter (donation jar present). Staff was helpful at all times.
