They provide fresh fruit for breakfast. You're also welcome to buy your own supplies. Just label your items to store it in the communal refrigerator.
It's located right downtown. Make sure you have a reservation.
This is a good place if you're on a tight budget.

If you don't mind sleeping in a bunk bed in a room with six other people, this place is highly recommended (considering you pay US$10 a night and get breakfast included).
The location is superb unless you mind the hippies/alcoholics/druggies outside the door and several porno stores and theatres nearby. Just a few blocks from Pikes Place Market and the financial district.
Internet connection available for US$1 per ½ hour or you can go to a lovely internet cafe 5 minutes down the road.

The Seattle Hostel is noteworthy because it's the Northern terminus of the infamous Green Tortoise Adventure Travel Bus Route, which you should be aware of. The big buses are rigged with bunks and lounges, more like a cruise than a bus. They stop at hot springs for (famously naked) bathing. They run a regular service from Seattle to Manhattan Beach, just south of LA for around $70. You sleep or hang out with other adventurers, eat communal meals at their campsites, and have a helluva trip. They also offer longer trips, like to the East Coast, loops of National Parks, even to Costa Rica. This is a hip safari, not just transportation. On the other hand, it's a fun, fairly cheap way to get from LA to Seattle or points in between. Check out the Green Tortoise Website for their current rates, adventures, and neo-sixties attitude.
