Seattle is a seaport city that combines vibrant city life with cultural attractions such as the SAM Gallery and the Space Needle delivering the wow-factor. Whether staying on a city vacation or eager to explore the wilderness of Washington State, Seattle hostels put you in the thick of it all.
Hostels in Seattle offer both private rooms and dorms, with many including 24-hour reception and laundry services. Additional modern touches such as free Wi-Fi are also available in some Seattle hostels.
Climb the 605-ft tall ‘Space Needle’ spire at Seattle’s central point or, if you prefer to stay closer to the ground, take a ride on the monorail for some great city views. Visit the Museum of Pop Culture to see how Seattle has risen through the years, from classic American Sci-fi to grunge music, and much more. Elsewhere, you’ll find art museums, theaters and world-famous farmer’s markets, such as the Pike Place Market.
From tiny boutique stores to luxury shopping malls and department stores, there is something to suit all budgets on a Seattle vacation. Head to the Pike Place Market for bespoke goods or head to the city’s main mall, the Westlake Center, for everything under one roof.
Eating out in Seattle will depend on your budget, with burger joints, bakeries and hip coffee joints located across town. Luckily for you, you’ll never have to venture far from your Seattle hostel location to sample the freshest flavours. Asian food is particularly good in Seattle, or head to the Downtown district for pizza and small family-owned Italian restaurants.
Seattle hostels typically sit near to the area’s main transport links, such as Seattle streetcars, metro systems and buses. As Seattle is a particularly compact city you can explore most of it on foot but, if you are traveling farther afield, grab an all-day transport to get around town quickly on the metro.
