The green tortoise hostel in deninately one of the best hostels that I have stayed in .
I finished up one the Green Tortoise road trips and I had previously hear that this place was a good hostel.
As with all hostels you are sharing rooms with other people. For me the bed were comfortable which you dont ofter get in hostels. I was staying in a dorm room with five others. If you are looking for a private room there are some available aswell. I would have no quams about going here with my girl friend as this is the kind of place that you will meet loads of like minded travelers.
The people who work in here are pretty helpful. They will help you get organised for any trip that you want and even suggest some places. They really found us a good deal for some bike hire. I cannot remember the name of the company they suggested but they were great value.
The hostel has a great lounge room which has fooz ball table and guitars dotted around the room for any Ben harper wanna be's.
The hostel organise some food trips to some resturants in the local area. All in all this is a cracking hostel and it is well worth the visit :-)
If you want to do the hostel a little favour, dont book through hostelworld as they take a very large cut. Email them directly.
