Liked: This is definitely an International hostel. Good mix of people...but mostly for the 'younger set'.

Disliked: Not a dislike... but this type of accommodation isn't for all...caters to young travellers on a budget.

Liked: friendly and helpful staff, plenty of information on the activities and where to go to in Seattle, nice breakfast, comfortable room and common area, foosball for you to kill time when waiting for your laundry to be done, great location where you can easily get access to light rail, buses, or a short walk to pike place market and most of the major downtown attractions.

Disliked: sometimes there's noise coming from outside during midnight such as people talking loudly on the streets, cars or motorcycles with abnormally loud engine sounds, etc.

Liked: 24 hour, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Friendly and helpful other hostelers. Character, updated amenities. Location quite near transit. Excellent value.

Disliked: Walking to it in the middle of the night in the reason from the bus, even though only 3 blocks. (The light rail quit running all the way to the station a few minutes after midnight.) Felt kind of dicey, a senior woman alone schlepping all her luggage!

Liked: This hostel is very clean and offers a good value for your money - including a towel and a full breakfast. The staff are extremely helpful and provide great recommendations for local restaurants. The location is ideal if you're taking the train or a bus to get here, and about a 20 minute walk to attractions. I really enjoyed my stay!

Disliked: I wouldn't feel too safe walking around the area in the middle of the night - but this wasn't a big concern for me.

Liked: The staff, cleanliness and the showers are good.

Disliked: The street outside is very dubious at night, the area is quite out of the way of any good bars and you can't bring any drink into the hostel so there isn't much of a hostel vibe. There is no evening entertainment.
