Well this was my first hostel visit and if this is what it's like I'm booking one again. Reception were very helpful and couldn't do enough. I had room 301 it is at the back and I had no noise. Some folks at front got street noise, few lively bars near by. Breakfast was good with great coffee. It's close...

Good location in downtown Seattle, with a great bakery around the corner, and good restaurants and bars in the area. Walking distance to Pike Place Market. Easy access to local buses. Good free breakfast and wifi. Excellent security. Very helpful and friendly staff. I stayed four nights at City Hostel, and was having such a good time in Seattle that...

We stayed four nights here in a private en suite room. I am not sure if the room decor would be to all tastes (ours was mainly tasteful nude photos), but it does make for a unique experience. The staff were very helpful and the security was excellent, in what can be a lively area of Seattle. The breakfast area...

Two stays in three weeks. Single elderly lady opted for private room- the first stay needed to share a bathroom which was brand new and immaculate, great shower, even a hair dryer. Second stay had private room with its own bath. Both rooms spacious. Staff efficient and friendly, all the amenities including free wifi, breakfast, tv room, books, etc. Fantastic...

Highly recommend! Arrival and check in was painless. Really friendly and helpful staff who can give you hints and tips. No elevator but its only 3 floors. Rooms are spacious with a private bathroom for every 4 bed room. The bathrooms in the hallway are nicer though and plentiful. Interesting and bright decor. Breakfast is filling and offers surprising variety....

The staff are friendly and welcoming. The location was really great - cute area a little to the side of the downtown. Good restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Our room had been painted by a local artist which was cool but crazy, with lots of faces, clashing colours and black making it not the most relaxing room. It...

I have stayed here a few times and it is great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The place is clean and comfortable. It is well-located in BellTown - a slightly sketchy neighborhood close to downtown. Since my last stay they have done a small renovation. The...

I highly recommend staying at City Seattle Hostel. My husband and I have stayed in our fair share of hostels around Europe. City Seattle Hostel met our expectations as wells as pleasantly surprised us. The hostel was extremely clean and secure, the management and staff were exceptional, and it's in a perfect central location. (rooms can be a bit snug,...

This hostel is one of the best I have stayed in. First and foremost the staff were brilliant and very helpful with things to see and do in the local area. The rooms are comfortable and have plenty of space too. The lockers are also large enough to store a small suitcase or backpack and some other things. I was...

This hostel ticks all the right boxes in terms of a modern solid urban hostel. The location in Bell Town is very good, the rooms are fair (if possibly a bit cramped), a free no-frills breakfast is served and the staff are helpful. The hostel however does excel to the highest level when it comes to showers and other bathroom...
