Liked: Good location and pretty quite so if you want a good nights sleep, then here is a safe bet. Very close to train station!!

Disliked: Due to location in Chinatown, it stinks of Chinese food constantly at the reception and other rooms. Also it's pretty hard to meet people here, everybody seems to stick to themselves which isn't hostel like at all, having said that if you want a quiter side of life it's perfect!!

Liked: the common room upstairs with the wifi and all the sofas.

Disliked: the price (30 bucks for a bed in a 4-beds-dorm, plus 10 bucks taxes)the fact that you cannot choose your bed when you arrive, they assign you a bed with a letter..the name on the street ("american hotel") is not quite the same as on internet, so people told me they almost did not find it.

Liked: It's not far away from the main places like pioneer square is a ten minute walk pike market a half hour walk it's good cheap grocery store round the corner.

Disliked: Bunk beds are good but need to be a bit more sturdy cos when the person on top moves the whole bed shakes and wakes you up.
