Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to get a list of alleyways within a geographic bounding.

I believe I want all ways with this tag: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:service=alley?uselang=en-US

Can I do this through a hosted web service somewhere? Or do I have to download the entire data set and use osmfilter offline?

Use Overpass Turbo (or Overpass itself) for this sort of thing.

For large scale filtering, such as the USA, use a downloaded extract and Osmosis or osmfilter.
