  • Great location, big rooms, very safe. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were clean and quite big and nice, but there were only few of them so it can get busy in the morning. It would be great to have small lamps by each bedside, I missed those!

  • Awesome location: close to all points of interest downtown, and in a safe and exciting area. Building and units are clean and full of character. Staff are so welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is simple but included! Caters to both young and mature travelers. ***bring your own bath towel if you don't want to rent one for $2.

  • I had never stayed at a hostel before and I found the experience to be a positive one. If your expectation is that a hostel has all the amenities of a hotel, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a positive interaction with other travelers, then this is for you. I found the staff at City Hostel to be very friendly and accommodating. The location was ideal for forays into the Seattle area. We came by light rail from the airport and City Hostel was within a few minutes walk.

  • City Hostel was the perfect temporary solution for my brief stay in Seattle. In fact, I'm currently at another hostel in a different state and really missing everything about City Hostel in downtown Seattle.

  • The hostel and facilities were clean, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good too. I didn't find it to be the most social hostel I've stayed at - maybe I came at the wrong time, but there wasn't a lot of inter action. Also, I stayed 2 nights in each of room 316 and 216 at the back of the building - unfortunately both of these rooms back on to an alleyway which was very noisy. Would be great to have curtains instead of blinds too so as to make the rooms darker.

  • Cheapest hostel in Seattle. Located in Bell Town, a "trendy" and expensive area of Seattle. Lots of pricey pubs and restaurants nearby. You have to walk or take a bus 15+ blocks to get into areas with less expensive places to eat/drink. Very clean. Only two bathrooms with single toilet (UGH!) on each floor for 10+ rooms bunking 4 per room!! They had two shower rooms per floor. Long waits for bathroom/shower. Pricey grocery store 1-1/2 blocks away. Major bus lines 1 block away on 3rd Av.

  • The hostel was very clean and well equipped with what I needed. My only complaint was that coffee should be available more hours out of the day!

  • Comfortable and clean but the artwork in the room was poorly chosen for a place where families might stay, disturbing montages of nude women in the woods Splattered with red paint like blood. More like Charles Manson than Monet.

  • The staff was extremely helpful with recommendations. The common spaces were clean and they had many amenities, such as locks for lockers in the rooms, games, and a lovely outdoor space.
