  • This hostel is located right by the Pike Place Market, Target, Walgreens, and several coffee shops and restaurants. Even though the location is perfect, there are a lot of homeless people circling the area, and the hostel's front door is always unlocked -- anyone can access the lounge area (which is usually crowded) at any time. Other than that, the staff was friendly, the bathrooms were clean and the bedrooms were great: all beds have curtains, reading lights, fans and several power plugs.

  • Great location; Staff OK...but one from Iowa was a stickler for the rules and not very helpful when I complained about a broken blind letting in too much light at night.....hard to sleep....She had no solutions and would not even let me put a towel over window...I had to place paper towels over the blind..Obviously lack of training.....Also pub-crawl tour guy was very passive at times and kept us in a deadbeat bar way too long...people started leaving and checking out of the "crawl".....

  • It was an amazing hostel with great amenities and close to everything. Even if you have nothing planned, they sure do and it's perfect for even a short visit. ABSOLUTELY stay here!! The only downside if they make you pay for using a towel, but outside of that, it's the best!

  • It was a great deal and very conveniently located! I loved that there were privacy curtains on all of the beds and a storage space for every bed. Remember to bring a lock with you! Staff was really helpful and friendly.

  • You can literally see Pike Place Market from the window of the living room! And this is the very first hostel I've found that has put on curtains in front of each dorm bed, which is very considerate of people's privacy. What's more, you got three FREE dinners every week! By the look of it, they are extremely yum...

  • The price total is $105 before tax but I booked online and I paid for down payment $12.40 and then I got the email from Hostelworld. It says the balance of $92.40 is payable when you arrive at the property. But when i arrived at this hostel, i had to pay $105 not $92.40. I don't understand why? I paid $12.40 for down payment for what?? I told them about this but they still charged me the total price.

  • I can't really speak from an experienced hostel stayer as this was my first time ever staying in a hostel. Regardless, it was a great first experience staying in a hostel. The building is far from luxurious but definitely has a comfortable feeling to it. Staff was friendly and you can't beat the location. Would stay again if traveling to Seattle.

  • I was only in Seattle for one night, but I had an amazing stay at Green Tortoise Hostel. The location, directly across from the Pike Place Market, cannot be beat, and everyone I encountered was very friendly. The dorm beds each have their own fan, light, and curtains, so I found they provided more comfort and privacy than other dorm beds I've stayed at in hostels. The blankets seems a little short/small/uncomfortable and the pillows pretty flat, but everything else was wonderful.
