This is a friendly, good quality hostel. The rooms are very basic, unless you book a private one in which case you will have your own bathroom. The bunk beds are metal framed and are the only furniture in the room bar a row of lockers to lock up your belongings. Outside of the room though, amenities abound. Several TV/lounge areas, a large breakfast room and a laundry/ larger locker room as well. Only downside is the location in the depth of China Town, which can have a slightly sketchy vibe at times.

If you are looking for a place to sleep, leave your things as you explore, and have an interesting conversation or two, then this will serve you quite nicely!

They offer a community continental breakfast and the location is pretty convenient to get to where you need to go in Seattle. Note: I find Seattle to be quite walkable, just bring a hooded jacket or an umbrella and you're set!

My only concern is that you should be aware at night when you step foot outdoors though because this area has a couple shady spaces nearby. But that's just good advice for exploring a new area anyway.

Tip: Ask if you can do a work trade. Many hostels I've contacted over the years have an option for you to work a few hours a day in exchange for your accommodations.

I was impressed with the cleanliness and general high level of organization at this hostel. Lots of hostels are pretty grubby (and this one's in a pretty grubby neighborhood) so it was nice to see how tidy it was inside. Laundry facilities, a short walk to cheap and late-night food, and a colorful and friendly dining room make this a winner for budget travelers. Bring your own padlock.

Really good clean hostel, fans for every bed, comfortable mattresses, clean bathrooms / common areas, Free Wi-fi & breakfast. Just a really nice hostel.

Only downside is the neighbourhood around it is pretty sketchy sometimes, but then again most of downtown Seattle can be pretty dodgy.
