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.

Liked: The water machine.

Disliked: There are no events arranged by the hostel making it very unsocial along with the no drinking within the hostel rule. Our room had a very overpowering chemical smell and you can hear doors being slammed throughout the floor. The staff apart from one or two are extremely uninterested in giving you any help.
