    A hostel of greats: great location, great price, great staff and great vibe. Spacious common areas, amazing free breakfast that includes eggs and pancakes, easy as to meet new people, free dinner on certain nights, very private and fancy bathrooms, by hostel standards, cheap bike hire and fun pub crawls. The only down side is the rooms are quite stuffy, which can be annoying in summer time, but each bed has a fan installed so it's usually pretty easy to get cool. Would definitely recommend to everyone, and make sure you get in quick because rooms don't stay vacant for long.

    Good hostel with friendly staff and a good location. The free dinner was amazing. The only downside was the cash machine didn't work, but I'm unsure if that was the hostel's fault or an outside vendor. Would definitely recommend.

    Very good hostel. Clean and perfect beds, good size rooms, good and clean bathroom and toilets.
    Tours all the time, good breakfast, free dinners.

    We were not so happy about the kitchen facilities. It was small and not good equipped for many people to cock there at the same time.

    Great breakfast, tidy dorms

    This hostel was very welcoming and most importantly, clean. The breakfast is fantastic. I was in a 6 bed dorm - the beds have privacy curtains and individual lights. The dorms also have a little handbasin which was great. Lockers are big enough to put all your stuff in. Great stay in a super location right next to Pike Market.

    When people asked me why I wanted to start my trip in Seattle, I could never give them a detailed or definite answer. I really don't know that much about this city, I've just always had a good feeling towards it. Whenever it's popped up in TV shows or movies, I would always think to myself, hot damn, Seattle is rocking. What's not to love about a …

    Der Dienstag Morgen begann schon früh für mich. Ich musste um 4:45 Uhr aufstehen um den Bus zum Pearson Flughafen um 5:35 Uhr zu erwischen. Ich checkte aus und machte mich auf dem Weg zum Bond Hotel. Der Bus kam fast pünktlich und der ältere Buschauffeur war schon in ausgezeichneter Stimmung und fragte mich nach meiner Adresse und Telefonnummer ( …

    impromptu adventure to Seattle with a few top class concerts afterwards from Micheal Bublé and the majestic Queen + Adam Lambert (I’ll do a separate posting for those two gigs) but here it goes.

    Getting into Seattle, I had the problem that I didn't have 2 dollars to my name in cash but also could not withdraw any Cash until midnight and I had to put down a cash deposit. They overcame this problem by taking my passport but this was a little inconvenient as Washington law states to get into an bar you need to provide your Passport. After …
