Location! Staff friendliness.
I found everyone, staff and fellow travelers, excellent. A truly unexpected joy. When I return to Seattle, I will definitely stay here.
Not enough time to hang out and enjoy the ambiance.
This hostel is right next to Pike Place Market, and an easy walk to the Washington State Convention Center and the ferry terminals. This hostel has really nice, modern bathrooms with overhead an shower sprinkler and good lighting. Free breakfast with eggs and toast. Kitchen is clean and well-kept.
The top bunk was tricky to climb into because of the way the ladder is constructed.
Staff were really friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, storage was excellent. There was a great range of breakfast foods available and the period of time it was available was suitable for all. Awesome location, so easy to wander out and about, perfect place to base yourself in the middle of Seattle.
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.
