A hotel hostel offers a combination of hotel and hostel-style accommodations. Hotel Hotel Hostel offers hotel-style private rooms with private bathrooms, European-style private rooms that share bathrooms in the hallway, and European-style shared dorm rooms with shared bathrooms in the hallway.

Please make all reservations through our website so there is a record of your reservation request and we can send you an email confirmation! We are NOT responsible for phone reservations made. For special reservation requests or group bookings of 6 or more, please email us at hello@hotelhotel.co.

We are happy to accept travelers coming through Seattle! Please have your travel itinerary and a valid ID (US drivers license or passport) ready at check-in. If you live in Washington State, it is mandatory that you email before booking for prior approval.

Ask us anything! We are here 24 hours a day. No question is silly--we will even tell you how beautiful you really are!

7 days is our max, though we do occasionally make exceptions. Just email us the nature and length of your stay and we will get right back to you.

You are expected to pay upon arrival, cash or credit accepted. We only take your credit card information at the time of your reservation to hold your room.

You can cancel or modify a reservation without penalty by email 24 hours prior to check-in. This means giving notice before 2 p.m. on the day before your arrival! If you cancel late or no-show, the full cost of the first night of your booking will be charged to your credit card.

Of course! However, anyone under the age of 18 must be traveling with a parent or guardian. Youth ages 10 to 18 can be in a dorm if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Kids under 10 years of age must stay in a private room.

We love kids and wanted to make it easier for traveling families, so we created a special family room which is reserved for families with children! Families renting the room get a king bed for parents, a bunk bed for 2 kids, and a discounted room rate.

We supply all bedding, so please do not bring your own. Feel free to use your own towel or rent one for $2. If you book any style of private room, 2 towels are included in the room price!

We have free lockers in all the dorm rooms! Bring your own lock, or rent one for $2. We have a limited number of locks, so lock rental is based on availability!

Hotel Hotel has a fully loaded kitchen with a gas stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and all the tools you need to cook for yourself and your friends!

Only registered guests may be in the hostel! Fremont is home to many, many great restaurants and bars/cafes if your friends want to visit you!

There is a parking lot across the street from the hostel that costs $10.00 for all day or all night parking. Paid street parking is $2.00 an hour from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.). Limited free street parking is available in 2 hour increments, but you must make sure to move your car every 2 hours.

Bikes cannot be stored in the hostel or rooms, but we have a bike rack right out front of our building. We also have a hidden public courtyard where you can store your bike available from 10 a.m. to midnight. Please bring your own lock as we do not supply bike locks!
