Free internet! Good speed and connection helpful staff subway near by! Tours are good from hostel worth going to the needle in daytime and nighttime! Views... More

This place is the best. By far the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. I stayed for seven nights in total over a two week period all in shared rooms. All the people here are great. Full of travellers of all ages. It has a very social atmosphere and the staff is awesome. There is free breakfast every morning and... More

My first hostel stay. The beautiful tanned woman with sandyandy blonde hair checked me in. Besides her beauty, she was kind and informative. She showed me how to work the keys and I chickened out on asking her on a date. I got locked out of my room the first night; the afro-clad gentlemen that works at nights let me... More

I stayed at the Green Tortoise Hostel for 3 nights in July 2014. This hostel is in an excellent location right across from the Public Market, many shops, and good transportation. There is free dinner 3 times a week which can really help out the travelers who are on a tight budget. I went on the pub crawl on Sunday... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. The rooms were reasonable, bunk beds with fans, shared bathrooms that were quite nice. The hostel had a laundry room and area to drink and eat too which was handy. The 4 hour clean of a small part of our room where we had to leave the room was a bit... More

Pro -Great location Con's -Cheap but not a good value -Mattresses were yellow foam and had no cover -Sheets and pillow case were tattered with holes -Bathrooms and showers needed cleaned more throughly and...

I stayed here with my 2 sons and found it conveniently located between old Seattle and the wonderful museums by the Space Needle. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, guests fun to converse with and the kitchen stocked for a hearty breakfast. We had some noisy roommates who came in around midnight one night, and were not very considerate,... More

Friendly front desk; however, there was one girl (short blonde hair) that was a bit rude when I was asking about the final price of my stay. The rooms are a bit cramped but, the bunks have privacy curtains and a fan so that was nice. They have a free breakfast every morning (pancakes, eggs) and the girl with the... More
