  • Pro: - Attendants were generally respectful and answered questions well - Foosball, chess Con: - Bathrooms were not cleaned often enough - Thin mattress and metal support bars made sleeping uncomfortable - One attendant refused us a towel citing only one towel exchange per day. Another allowed it. - Window was difficult to close, letting in cold wind. It didn't have a protective screen either, potentially allowing bugs to enter - Cigarette smell - Breakfast included only bread

  • The location of the hostel is great. Being so close to King St Station allowed for me to travel easily throughout the city and to other destinations. The distance to Pike St Markets and the Space Needle is not huge and an easy walk. The big thing was having the link train to the airport so close to the hostel and I was able to leave my bags there after I checked out until I was ready to catch the train to the airport. The staff were nice and friendly but did lack some local area knowledge.

  • I shared my experience with the "Share your experience" link in my email. Anyway my family and I had a great time. The lady who put out breakfast was wonderful. I can not remember her name but she was so pleasant and she had everything-clean! I complimented her and told the front desk about her and the guy who helped her clean. They were so cool and awesome. Her smile and friendliness made me feel welcomed and happy-she has a cool vibe and spirit We will return in the future.

  • The hostel is very good for travelers on a budget. Location is excellent. Location in Chinatown and near downtown Seattle. The location is also next to the train station and bolt bus pick up area. The hostel provides free wifi, free towel, and free breakfast. Overall, excellent hostel! Higher recommended!!

  • Great location--near many buses, train and King Street Station. Many interesting street people around, always asking for money, and sometimes aggressively. Although I never felt that my safety was threatened, I remain aware of what's happening around me. The area seems like it's on life support. Chinatown seems so....old, so lifeless. Very uncharacteristic. Neighborhood in flux.

  • You ask guests to save Walter by taking shorter showers, why not install low flow shower heads, and some plugs in the sinks.
