Location was incredible for the value, staff was extremely friendly and they served free beer one night which was awesome.
Nothing to complain about. Bathrooms weren't the cleanest, but you should know what to expect when staying in a hostel over a hotel and there were plenty of space and they're shared just like any hostel. Definitely better than most of the other hostels I've stayed in.
it was nice! more than anything, the staffs were really friendly and nice. and bathrooms were clean all the time. and the location is really perfect. if you have tight budget it would be best choice in seattle.
as the building is a little bit old. during the night. it was a little bit cold, and noise from outside was bothering me.
Breakfast was good, nice selection of choices. Location is great, easy access to whatever you wish to do, and or see. And your Staff is incredible! - So helpful, kind, and nice!! Could not have asked for better amazing people.
The only thing we had a problem with is the staircase at the door, for anyone with any physical issues, and/or for older folks it is a challenge to climb due to the steepness and the number of stairs. A chairlift or elevator would be awesome & would make the Hostel handicapped friendly. (Due to the age of the building, I don't know if it's possible)
The breakfast was great! Free eggs and fruits for breakfast were plentiful. Coffee was good. One of the best breakfast I ever had in a hostel. Privacy curtain, lights, fan and lots of outlet on each bed were highly appreciated. Centrally located and accessibility to everything.
A single mirror in the sleeping quarters would be real nice.
The location is just right at the pike place market. If you think it’s gonna be noisy, sorry to break your imagination. The hostel inside is quiet. The bunkbed has the curtain all around, so you will surely feel privacy. All the staff was nice. The restrooms were being clean all the time. If you want some activities, they got a lot in every night. They even have the coin changing machine at the lobby just ti make sure you prepare for paying the bus.
Not that much choice of breakfast.
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.
