I really enjoyed staying here. The location is great, the beds were really comfortable, or at least they were for me after spending long days walking around Seattle, and Mike, the host, was very friendly and hospitable. I definitely recommend it!

First of all I should thank Mike for helping me solve a real trouble with my suitcase. Secondly, I'll try to provide a little more information. The location is in Seattle Chinatown and is extremely convenient, just a few metres away from the Intl. District station (Link-train to both airport and Washington university). During my stay (3 nights) the neighborhood as well as the place were very quiet. The place is a large room (let's say 13x20m or more) divided into a small entrance, large temple hall (where the beds are put), two small rooms where things are stored, basic kitchen, Mike's room, and washrooms. The kitchen is equipped with coffee machine (you can purchase coffee pods), kettle, induction cooker, and fridge (I might forgetting something). The washrooms are rather clean and equipped with many different hygiene products. During my stay we were always 2 guests each night, and you should not expect more than 3 per night. Mike was precise and helpful also with check-in and out. I am glad I found this place.

For the most part it was as the listing described. There were some inaccuracies, though, such as the mention of mandatory services and food
