West - Cheap lodgings in Seattle - What do you mean by "Hostel"?
Aug 14, 11, 1:42 pm
So I need a place to stay in SeaTac for one night.
I am on booking.com and have found a Hostel for $30/night. Is this room just for me or will there be some other people in it too?
In the photos I can see some bunk beds.
Also, what is the best website to find cheap hotels in SeaTac?

a call would confirm what you get, but a hostel in my mind is a bunkhouse, w/cheap rates for youth & senior budget travelers....

Hostels can range from a room with 2 or 3 beds to a room with 20 beds. You may not be guaranteed to have the room be exclusive to your reservation, so they often have lockers or drawers that you can "rent" locks for to keep your valuables in.
I stayed in about 30 hostels during my two month backpacking trip in Europe last year. Some are much nicer than others... and sometimes spending the extra 15 euros per night would get my buds and I a private room instead of a 20 bed dormitory room!
Hostelworld.com is the best site for hostels and has a lot of information and REVIEWS which are key!

As the Seattle area is most often discussed in the Travel->West forum, I'll move this there. Ocn Vw 1K, Moderator, TravelBuzz.
