I stay here late in October 2014. I had a great time while staying here and met a ton of people from all over the world and made some good friends. The Positives are...Plenty of bathrooms with hot water and good water pressure. Plenty of plugs for all your gadgets. Good music playing all the time. A nice common room...

I'm a thirty something solo traveler on a budget, and I didn't stay in a hostel in forever. Seattle is pricey though, so I decided to stay in a 4-bed female dorm room. I did not regret my experience! The hostel was very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and my roomies very considerate. I didn't eat the breakfast in...

Overall this was a good experience. The location was great, you can pretty much walk to all the major attractions, and the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and you never have to wait. The room did feel a bit dated but the beds and linen were good. The general facilities were also pretty good - overall not a bad place...

Me and a friend stayed at the hostel for 2 nights. Everything was fine. The location is great. We wanted to come back a week later and made a reservation at the front desk. We told the guy the date at least 3times. He repeated the correct date. A week later I called them to let them know we'll be...

This place looked better than some of the other Seattle option so I went with it. I wasn't disappointed but there were something that just didn't roll with me. One being the decoration in our room. I know they're all painted my local artists, but our room just looked dirty and unclean. There was also medial diagrams of spines and...

The location of this hostel is probably the best thing it has going for it. The staff are really helpful even though they didn't know the answer to a lot of my questions they always looked up the answer for me. There isn't a lot of seats in the kitchen so at breakfast a lot of people were sitting in...

From the moment we were met by reception, City Hostel Seattle did a great job of making me and my companion travelers feel welcome, and quickly helped us secure our bikes in their secure storage area even though we arrived at 11 PM. The amenities were better than your average hostel. The staff was friendly, available 24 hours a day,...

I just finished up a 3 night stay at the City Hostel and was very pleased. The staff was very friendly and numerous (the desk is manned 24 hrs a day) I felt very safe with key card entry into the building and the desk staff double checking everyone's cards as they came in. The rooms and bathrooms were very...

Only stayed one night on our way between San Francisco and Vancouver but we'll be coming back. Excellent location, great clean bathrooms, adequate breakfast an friendly staff. The only minor point I'd make is that our 6 bed dorm was quite cramped with little space to store our stuff. No biggy and didn't bother us. We'll be staying here again...

I really liked this place. It was relaxed and friendly and in a great location, with bars and restaurants all around (including the legendary Crocodile Cafe venue!) and within easy reach of the Market, Space Needle etc. We stayed in a four-bed dorm decorated, like all the others, by a local artist and were surrounded by amazing portraits of film...
