Hillman City Rallies Against Illegal Hostel

About a week ago,5f8d6dce3333080a585bcba6ad14439b this story broke about an illegal hostel that got busted in Seatac. There were some initial reports that the operators were thinking about relocating in Hillman City. Since there was nothing confirmed, I held back on posting the story.

Now, however, it looks like neighbors and businesses in Hillman City are taking action. Kiro is reporting that there’s a movement to resist the relocation:

Owners of an alleged illegally run hostel in SeaTac said they’re opening a new location in Hillman City, and potential neighbors are rallying against it.

“I think that they’re in a difficult position, but it’s also one of their making, or mismanagement,” said Joya Iverson, owner of Tin Umbrella Coffee.

The proposed location is along Rainier Avenue in Hillman City.

“I don’t want to see this hostel here. I don’t think we have a choice, but I’m not excited about this,” said Iverson.

Hillman City business leaders voiced their concerns at a business association meeting where they let it be known that they have serious reservations about it.
