Immersive Seattle Experience

Liked: Hostelling International-Seattle is located directly inside the International District and is surrounded by restaurants, tea houses and activity. The hostel is located in a historic hotel with stairs and an elevator. Staff are attentive and happily accommodating, while the amenities include a fully equipped kitchen area, complimentary laundry detergent, dryer sheets, bicycle storage etc.Located just up the stairs/elevator from the Link train, the International District offers an array of cultural experience:? food and drink? bookstores? grocery markets? traditional herb and floral shops? Pokemon card, vintage video game, anime and model shops? a pinball museum? parks with ping pong tables etc.Most people get around on foot or train and the city is designed for walkability. If you're physically able, the piers are a short 15-20 minute walk, with all areas of the city accessible by a phenomenal network of public transport to include: buses, street cars, lite rails, subways, monorails and electric bikes or scooters for rent. note: travellers should keep supportive footwear in mind.The homeless populations share the sidewalks throughout the district although, we only faced one encounter from someone seemingly there to target the more vulnerable.Many businesses are still operating within reduced hours due to COVID-19 and the city is still under mask and social distancing mandates with strict anti-harassment policies so, prepare to comply and act in a respectful manner. The business owners and attendants were happy to receive us as patrons and were genuinely friendly.I would encourage anyone to book a stay at Hostelling International-Seattle for a centrally-located, clean hostel with amenities like towels, fans, heaters, hair dryers, irons, kitchen equipment and proximity to the best market in Seattle.
Disliked: Some of the sidewalks and alleyways could benefit from more frequent trash removal and pressure washing.

Good if you want something...

Liked: Location is good. 15 minutes walk to the waterfront, 20 - 25 minutes walk to the centre/pike market. Right next to the train station that takes you to the airport and to multiple buses that take you everywhere in the city. Super well connected. There are also restaurants and cafes around (most of them close relatively early though, so don't rely on them for a late snack)The room was ok. There were multiple power outlets next to each bed and a small individual fan, which is good. Nothing spectacular but it was ok and clean It had a sink with a mirror, which was helpful. The little lamp over the mirror was a plus. There was also storage space that you can lock with your own locker.The key card opens all spaces of the hotel. They also provided heaters and fans in the receptionThey provided free towels in the reception and they let us store our luggage before check in and after check out. There isn't always someone in the front desk but they provided us with a phone number to call and we always found someone who answered when we needed. Stuff was niceBathrooms were fine too. No major complaints about cleaning and there were a few available at our floor. We stayed there for 2 nights and only one of us had to wait because the bathrooms were taken once, so that wasn't a problem. Hot water was always available and water pressure was good.Common space and kitchen are nice and fairly well equipped
Disliked: There is clearly no attention to decoration/aesthetic/color when it comes to the rooms. You just have the basic and it kinda reminded me of a cabin in a boat (which is totally fine with us but sth to mention for people who are looking to stay at a pretty room). There could also be a bit more attention to details. Something like a nightstand or a little shelf next to the beds, to put our phones and stuff, would be really helpfulThe hostel is inext to main streets so there was noise from outside during the night (sirens, cars etc). Nothing crazy but could be annoying if you are a light sleeper. The blinders for the window were not enough to completely shut off the light so the light would wake us up in the morning.Internet was a bit slow at timesThere was a water fountain in the common area but the cold water had a metallic taste that was not idealOverall, this place was good value for money and it is good for people who just want a bed to sleep after spending the whole day outside
