Stayed at the Green Tortoise over the holiday weekend. I loved it! I stayed in a 4 person female dorm, which was great. Beds were comfy & I took a previous traveler's recommendation by bringing my own pillow case. The bathrooms were clean & tidy. I wore flip flops in the shower, personal preference. Breakfast is ok, bagels, fruit & oatmeal. The kitchen is open to guests, so you can cook your own meals if you preferred. Lots of social activities are offered, which are always fun. I arrived on a Friday just in time for Beer Olympics, met new friends & fellow travelers from around the world. Green Tortoise is walking distance to Chinatown, Little Italy & even Fisherman's Wharf. Lots of walking but it's worth it!
