New HI Hostel Open in Seattle

Open only since July 31, Hostelling International (HI) Seattle is giving budget and youth travelers an affordable option close to the city's waterfront, just a block from the Amtrak station. Inhabiting a newly renovated four-story building, this spic-and-span hostel has all the amenities you'd expect, from self-service laundry and bicycle rental to a common kitchen and TV and game room. It's also open 24 hours a day. Rates start at $35/night for a dorm bed or $86 for a private room, all with shared bath including breakfast. Nonmembers pay an extra $3/night. For reservations, call (206) 622-5443 or click here. The hostel is located at 520 S. King Street.
