    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.
