  • Overall it was a great experience, my only comment would be that the manager herself didn't seem that welcoming. I'm sure she just had an off day! I'd definitely stay there again. And my other comment would be, that they need to disclose that you are supposed to pay $20 in cash for the deposit.

  • Loved how it was right on the corner of pike place market! Great central location! Loved the free pancake/egg breakfast! Enjoyed the dorms, clean, private and quiet. Liked the single bathrooms, never had to wait!

  • This is the best hostel Ive stayed in so far. The rooms are away from the common areas which keeps things quiet at night. The bunk beds were great, comfortable mattresses, privacy curtains to close off your bunk with a personal fan and light and lots of outlets, even on the top bunk. Sink in the room was a plus. The storage lockers were huge! My only complaint was that the shower floors were a bit slimey, wish I brought shower shoes.

  • The Green Tortoise is a really awesome hostel. The location is amazing, right at the entrance to Pike Place Market and walking distance to Seattle Center. The activites are fun, especially the Dead Guys tour and the pub crawl and the free pasta and taco dinners are delicious!

  • Best location, rooms are small and a little dark, but each bed has it's own light, fan and 4 powerpoints. Lots of activities happening throughout the week too. And you should definitely do the free walking tour, it was the best I've been on with so many ideas!!

  • We loved the breakfast, how you were able to make your own pancakes and eggs. The only complaints we had were that there was no AC, and the wifi didn't work for us.
