I stopped at the Green Tortoise the first time I came to Seattle, on a characteristically overcast, drizzly October weekend. The friendly staff immediately made me feel at home, checked me in and took me to my dorm room so I could drop my bags. The location is simply unbeatable - once I'd dropped my bags I walked immediately across the street to begin exploring Pike Place Market and the waterfront - allowing me to maximise the 3 days I had here on my first trip.
Beds are comfortable with acres of underbed storage (giant lockers with loops for a padlock) - the integrated power sockets and privacy curtains were also a plus. Rustic furnishings in the communal areas give the place a warm, cosy character and compared to many of the US hostels I've stayed in, an especially friendly feel. The bathrooms are well appointed and there is no shortage of hot water. Breakfast was good.
A wonderful hostel experience and, had they not been booked up on subsequent trips to Seattle, I would have stayed again. Recommended.
