Happened to find this hostel online; looking for a place to stay one night before hiking. Great location! Right across from Pike Place Market and within a few blocks of the light rail. Clean facilities and very friendly employees. If you are an adult and just want a budget room to sleep in, check this out.

It's just the perfect location to explore the city. Especially, the pike place market is just 1 min walking distance. The bed was clean and the bathroom was clean too. But it has two minus points. 1. low water pressure: you have to be patient 2. noise from the street : if you are a light sleeper, you definitely need... More

I was very impressed with the cleanliness and hardworking staff! The staff went above and beyond multiple times. I love Seattle and there is no where to stay thats better than this place when it comes to the ridiculously low cost, PERFECT location, and awesome staff who keep the place clean and guests happy.

Green Tortoise has got something that common hostels don't usually have: individual fan & reading light for each bed & curtail for privacy! The fan helps a lot in ventilating the room without the need to open windows (which may be noisy due to road facing). This makes it stand out of the rest of other hostels!

The hostel was great. Located directly next to Pike Market. Breakfast included, spacious showers, activities to take part in (day and nighttime), a looooot of space for luggage (probably loved that the most), friendly helpful staff. If too many people were in the kitchen it got a bit snuggly and since the showers and toilets are always together in one... More

Very well located, classic hostel. Not super comfortable mattresses but they work. I always try to choose the beds further from the doors. They have curtains for every bed and that's pretty good. Noise from the street in the room where I was, but I sleep well if I'm tired enough. Must go to Snoqualmie in a day trip :D

This is one of my favorite hostels in North America. It is located right in front of the Pike place market; there are a lot of restaurants/cafes/shops around the hostel, and it's only a 3-minute walk (maybe less) to the 3rd Avenue, which is where you can take most of the main buses that run through Seattle. The staff were... More

The Green Tortoise hostel is in a fantastic location - right by Pike Place Market. The rooms of the hostel are clean and the hostel offers many social events and has many common areas which are great for meeting other travellers.

Right in the middle of town, everything close by. Little noisy because of that. It's an oldfashioned hostel, no more no less. Quite cosy and fun to be there if you like this type of hostel and don't fuss to much about little things. You only pay a few dollars to stay here .... Free breakfast, there was even a... More

In my opinion this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in whilst travelling North America. The location is brilliant, round the corner from shops, across the road from pike place market and an easy journey to any tourist attractions. The beds were comfy and had curtains around them as well as personal fans which were greatly appreciated.The bathrooms... More
