I've probably stayed in 300 hostels and this place is right in the middle. The good: great staff (although all seemed kinda burnt out on travelers), great location, affordable as far as American hostels go, overall fairly clean. The bad: just kind of tired and blah. I don't think they've really changed, or really cleaned, or spruced up, or done...

Me and my wife we stayed in a private room. The room was very spacious and clean. Even though it is a shared bedroom, there are so many bathroom in each floor that we never had to wait for anything. Also there is a sink in the room, which helps out for brushing teeth and so on. Location is perfect!...

Amazing location. Walking distance to countless restaurants and bars. This hostel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the Pike Place Market and about 15-20 minutes from the space needle. The hostel rooms were great with each room portraying different themes of artwork. The room that my friends and I ended up in was one of the human heart which...

I had a private room, adorned with marine-themed artwork, it was like I was in the aquarium! Staff friendly, helpful and efficient - several of us arrived at once off the Victoria ferry and they were well-prepared with extra staff. You didn't feel rushed, they checked you in then asked if you had any questions. The room had a hand...

What a great experience we had at this hostel. My hubby and I are older (50 &60) and noticed a lot of older folks at this location too. The staff were excellent.

My son and I shared a private room with shared bath at City Hostel recently and had a fabulous day. Front desk staff are very welcome and inviting, and perfectly willing to share information about the area. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The shared bathrooms were constantly being clean and the shower area was...

This hostel is very central, but that does mean it can be noisy from the neighbourhood at the weekend. The staff at really friendly and very helpful and the hostel has a nice feeling to it. Beds are quite comfy and you can hire towels for $2. You can easily walk to the waterfront but if you have a big...

It's the best place to stay downtown. Every room is a museum gallery but with cosy beds and an view on the space needle. There is also a breakfast included, which adds even more comfort. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The hostel is situated near downtown on second avenue and very close to bars and main activities
