Liked: Arranged activities were organised well. Security and location were good.

Disliked: There was a whole lot of interesting tours advertised however, when I asked where the meeting points were, the staff memeber had no idea - didnt ask any of the other staff members - and sent me on a wild goose chase in the general direction they thought it was. Suffice to say I never found the meeting points to go on the tour.

Liked: great central location, free breakfasts and free dinners a couple of times a week. Something going on every day - the food tour was amazing. The rooms were small but each bunk has privacy curtains, a reading light and a fan, and large lockers underneath the bottom bunk for storage.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Those little privacy screens = stellar, especially since I'm pretty sure I got put in a boys dorm (I'm a girl), that they made into a "co-ed" dorm upon my arrival. Breakfast is great, free dinner is great, and be sure to visit the Seattle Coffee Works downstairs - get the Don King donut; it's freaking amazing.

Liked: Free dinner was a plus. There were plenty of good social activities and the hostel is located in practical location.

Disliked: The breakfast was probably the worst I've had at a hostel in the States. The wifi never worked and so I had to go to Starbucks across the road just to check my emails.

Liked: close to pike's market, glad to have privacy shades and a light on my bunk, plenty of bathrooms (so no waiting!) and very friendly staff.

Disliked: The breakfast was alright (pancakes and eggs to cook yourself!) but the fruit they had out was sad-looking.

Liked: Breakfast included. Dinner 3 x a week. Top bunks appeared easily accessible. Curtains around bunks for privacy. Sink in room. Lockable space under bunk for bags so not cluttering the room. Vending machines were cheap. Own power points and lights. Bathrooms had sink toilet and shower in one. Good kitchen- don't have to wash dishes as is a dishwasher- altho always per wash ur crockery and cutlery!

Disliked: I was on a bottom bunk the was on the door so everytime someone came in or out of the room I was woken up. Some bags may struggle to fit in lockers. Bathrooms were generally really clean however lacked adequate ventilation so very humid. In busier periods there may not be enough bathrooms.

Liked: I liked the free breakfast and the free dinners. They also had free coffee/tea/hot chocolate available all day. Also had a massive kitchen so you could make your own food if necessary. They also had nice bathrooms - big single person size bathrooms, meaning no awkward moments with strangers as you get undressed. There was a lot on offer to do, and the hostel is ideally located - close to everything! The rooms are great too as each bed has its own curtains, lamp, plugs and fan, which is great in this hostel environment as it was easy to keep to yourself and get rest.

Disliked: The top bunks were extremely high and sometimes quite a challenge to get up and down. The staff were good, but not overly enthusiastic, which can be a good or bad thing depending on the type of traveler you are. I found some of them to have a "too cool for school" vibe.
