Liked: - Helpful staff - Great message board showing events of the day. - Breakfast was a plus -The beds seemed private even in shared rooms - Downstairs seems more like a café than anything, nice seating area for meals or just hanging out. -Single occupancy bathrooms are also nice, well-maintained

Liked: Right next to Pike Place Market. There's a common area where you can eat and watch TV.

Disliked: In addition to the payment for your room from HostelBookers, you have to pay an extra tax when you get there. I didn't know about this so it would be helpful to list it on Hostelbookers.com. Also they were going to charge me the full amount before I told them that I had already paid 10% through HostelBookers. They said that HostelBookers don't show the 10%. I think this should be fixed so it won't allow for confusion.

Liked: Awesome place. It has to be the best location for a hostel in Seattle! Right by the market, close to loads of bars. Super clean in all the rooms and the bathrooms are spotless and really big! Staff are so friendly! One of them printed me something free of charge, they all have a good sense of humour and are in good spirits. They do a free dinner three nights a week which is awesome, and free breakfast every morning! Great kitchen, The storage lockers are great as they're under the beds so they are huge. Bigger than any locker I've ever seen at any other Hostel

Disliked: The only downside is the price. It's not the cheapest hostel in Seattle, but obviously the best Hostel wouldn't be!

Liked: I would like to think I’m a fairly hardy and experienced hostel user and this place goes into my top three I’ve stayed in. I terms of location, well, it’s in the New York equivalent of Times Square or the London equivalent of Piccadilly Circus, it just doesn’t get any better with Pike Place Market literally on your doorstep and all easily walkable to Pioneer Square, Capital Hill, Seattle Centre and all of Seattle’s major sites. It’s also very near to the Metro. The beds are large, the place is secure and the showers are the best I’ve ever had in a hostel. The breakfast and internet/computers are free and there’s an excellent communal area and kitchen. What sets this place aside though is the staff. The staff could not have been more helpful, friendly or accommodating. If you’re opting for a hostel in Seattle just don’t bother looking at anywhere else. Stay here.

Disliked: That I had to leave.
