Based in a renovated historic building from 1926, Hostelling International Seattle at the American Hotel offers a convenient location in the International District of downtown Seattle just one block east of Union Station.

This safe, clean and modern Seattle hostel offers both private and dorm room with a range of facilities including free Wi-Fi, Internet access, TV room and 24 hour kitchen and dining area. There is a grocery store one block away so guests can bring their own food back to prepare, and in the local area there are many restaurants, a bakery and a sandwich shop in the hostel itself.

HI Seattle at the American Hotel is close to many attractions including Pioneer Square, home of the Underground Tour; sports stadiums such as Safeco Field, Qwest Field and Seattle Sounders FC; the Seattle Center and the Space Needle tower.

What travellers think...

Green rating



I appreciate the 2 free meal nights but it probably would be more beneficial if there was a day in between them say on Tuesday and Thursday instead of back to back nights. Also I enjoyed my stay but ur limited to only 14 days for the entire year, my room was never full the entire 2 weeks, if there are beds available and not booked for the next 24 hours there should be some way you could 'stand-by' and claim that available space.

The pier... You can also get in a great run at Sculpture Park adjacent to the pier.

Staying anywhere but here - it's too dodgy an area to be coming back to late.
