The location is great, just steps away from the market, and everything is in walking distance. Friendly staff, good value for money in Seattle. The bunk beds have curtains for privacy.
My first stay in a hostel. The rooms are a bit small, no place to get stuff out of a big suitcase. Not enough bathrooms. Some stains on the bed linen. Lots of steps to get into the lobby, inconvenient with heavy luggage.
Clean, well organized , good location , the locker at the room were very roomy.
The check in could be early
Great breakfast, secure luggage storage and excellent location next to Pike Place Market.
I wouldn't quite call it a party hostel, but they have regular drinking-related events and 2 out of 3 nights I stayed there I was woken up by other guests coming into the room talking loudly in the early hours after attending said events.
Good location, comfortable lounge and good WiFi
Horrible mattresses. Just got a bad back pain from them. The wooden construction is solid though. The worst thing is the noise in the rooms. Not because if people, as that’s normal in a hostel. No, the fans in the room. Everyone has his own connected to their bed. This causes much noise and vibrations in the beds. Couldn’t sleep because of it.
the bed had a little dust
The Green Tortoise philosophy is that great food, beautiful places, and sociable people are the only essentials for a more-than-gratifying travel experience. The Green Tortoise group built the Seattle and San Francisco hostels around this social and communal ideology and experience. After expanding and refining the entire hostel experience, guests now have free Internet access, communal meals in the self-catering kitchen, private bathrooms, and comforts that make The Green Tortoise a unique place to stay. Located just across from the world-famous Pike Place Market, in the heart of beautiful Seattle, The Green Tortoise is ready to take visitors’ travel experience to new heights.
The Green Tortoise offers co-ed dorms, female dorms, private rooms, and family rooms with queen or twin beds. Each bed has a large storage locker, reading light, fan, four plug electrical outlet, and convenient privacy curtains. Bathrooms are all shared in the hallway but are private and individual units that include a sink, shower, toilet, and a locking door so they are not shared while they’re actually in use. Amenities also include 24-hour reception with no curfew or lockout, free luggage storage, free computer and printer use, available bike rentals, and access to walking tours, city tours, and pub crawls to get the insider views of Seattle.
The Green Tortoise partners with Seattle Free Walking Tours, inspired by the adventures and travels of the tour organization's co-founders. Free tours are a phenomenon throughout a large part of Europe, and it is this organization’s hope to introduce the concept in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
