I experienced some interactions with certain individuals that are consistent with the terrorizing harassment that the Scientologist Gang Stalkers inflict on their victims. I have been asking to speak with the owner to find out if it is coming from the top or was this the staffs doing? I'm glad they have video and audio recording there so we can see what I'm talking about and then ask the individuals themselves since there is records of all guests. I hope the owner reaches out soon. It's a cool place if your taking a bunch of drugs and need a place to veg out with other junkies and just waste time. I'm a WORKING man and don't have time to waste.

Property's Favorite Review
My friend and I needed a place to stay but HATE paying for overpriced hotels. This hostel was amazing. It is within walking distance of literally EVERYTHING. It's very clean, and the hang out areas were well kept. There was a specific smoking room, which was nice. The kitchen is spacious. You could cook almost anything in there. The food storage system was great too. This is the only place we will stay!!!

First I have to warn to be cautious about parking in the West End parking garage where they have a discount. Even though the garage is locked at night, and even if your car is visibly completely empty with nothing to steal in it, it may get broken into like mine did, which is a real hassle when you are trying to enjoy a vacation. I would find a more secure parking option or find a way not to bring a car into the city. The hostel itself was great. The rooms were small (in number of occupants), and noise didn't carry from room to room, so it wasn't too hard to get a good night's sleep. The lockers were very large, I was able to fit my big suitcase, my smaller carryon size suitcase, and my backpack and keep everything secure. Everything was clean. I wasn't really looking for activities, but it seems like they had a lot of tours and events for people who did want to meet people and find things to do. And the free breakfast options were decent. I would definitely stay here again.

A really warm and welcoming hostel atmosphere. It felt safe, inclusive, well resourced, really well set up for as much privacy as you could get in a hostel environment. Breakfast was really nice, especially considering it was complimentary. Great social opportunities, towels and locks were affordable, and great airflow through out. Thoroughly enjoyed, probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in.

nothing bad to say about this hostel other than the trade working staff should leave drama at the door and be better about communication. I do not recommend staying here long term or traveling alone..

The place was clean, safe and reasonably priced. Across the street from all the main attractions such as Pile Market, Gum wall, original Starbucks. We were only a short walk to the space needle. I would definitely visit again. We reserved in advance and had a private dorm, with Four bunk beds which was perfect for my party of 4.

The building is abit old but they are very clean. There is free breakfast and ATM, ear plugs, coin change machine. The bathrooms are also beautiful. The rooms can be abit cold but they are willing to make your stay comfortable by adding you a blanket or Changing you to a room with working AC. The staff are polite and helpful, I just admire how they work together in their bright green jackets. The place is near the market place and in downtown. Beautiful trees around too. What made my stay okay is the level of cleanliness period.

Green Tortoise is clean, friendly, central & cheap - the staff are fantasistically helpful, the hostel is a minute away from Pike Market and less than 10 minutes walk from the Washington Conference Cenre and Sherraton (where one night costs as much as a week at the Green Tortoise. Wifi, shower, breakfast and a great place to meet people.
