Great location, staff and breakfast! Free dinner was great too and good mix of ages staying there. Only thing I didn't like is that some of the bathrooms have open showers so the whole bathroom is wet afterward. A hanging track with a shower curtain would go a long way to helping the problem. Also a shelf for toiletries in the other showers and bunks would be great. Just a suggestion on how to make a really good hostel even better.

Excellent location, great staff, breakfast and free dinner. Only thing I didn't like are some of the showers are open which leaves the bathroom soaked after use. A simple ceiling mounted track and curtain would go a long way to helping the problem. Would also suggest shelves for toiletries in the showers and beds. Just ideas fo how to make a really good hostel even better.

my loved staying, friendly receptionists, handsome, courtesy, welcoming and always ready to help. I love their sincere smile~ Great atmosphere, nice communication climate ^_^ I would say this lovely hostel is the most outstanding one during all the hostels I have visited. The lovely green tortoise would be my must-stay in the next visit. (*^_^*)

I would have rated their facilities as "excellent" if not for the FANS! Who installs the loudest fans in the universe into hostel bunks? I spent my first night tossing and turning until at 3 a.m. I decided to install a decibel-level app to find out just how loud the fan in the bunk next to me might rate. It fell short of Washington State's noise pollution threshold (57 db), but at 50-52 db on an otherwise quiet night...its purr was more of an agonizing, sleep-depriving roar.

Good location, helpful staff, great bathrooms. The dorms were a bit small and hot, but if you stay in the dorm room for most of your stay, you are doing it wrong.

Great staff and wonderful environment to meet people of all ages from all over the world. The complete opposite of a snooty, expensive, anonymous hotel.

Seattle Green Tortoise staff are friendly, easy going, and business-like, all at the same time. The whole place is clean. The bathrooms are tidy, and the sleeping room that I was in was likewise well kept. This was my second time at the Seattle Green T, and I'd certainly stay there again. Probably will, in fact.

I would have liked if the towel was added to the cost and provided for me. Towel rentals are available to $1 at the front desk - a minor inconvenience for a busu traveler. I would gladly stay there again. What a charming and delightful staff.

Chelsea at the front desk is awesome not just that she checked me in, she also offered me her jacket for the pub crawl, leading by sasha who's also a great tour guide. If you ever get the chance to join the dead guys and parks tour- do it! The bathrooms in this hostel are amazing, you've a proper bathroom and don't need to share it with other people. Just wanna say thank you for having me and making my stay as much comfortable as possible.

Great hostel. Lots of individual bathrooms and showers which were all very clean. The rooms themselves are small, but they have privacy curtains. The location is right across the street from Pike Place market.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Prefect location. Free breakfast included Eggs (which is a first for me) and pancakes plus the usuall. Free dinners provided on specific weeknights were amazing, and provided vegetarian options. Common area has a very nice vibe, and they have a smoking room, which although not my cup of tea is certainly an interesting addition. I enjoyed the pub crawls put on by the hostel, but I felt too long was spent at each pub, limiting the number visted.

Yup, theres a reason why this place is great. Free breakfast with eggs, taco and pasta nights (they dont skimp on the food- plenty to eat), GREAT location, good vibe, clean, and has activities for u to do pretty much each day. The owner knows how a backpacker hostel should be like- u can just tell

Great, central location with some of the nicest hostel beds and showers I've seen. The privacy curtains are great! Free food is a plus too. Only negatives would be the oddly-arranged and slightly run-down common room and the urine smell by the front door, but those are really pretty minor things.

This place is great. 100% recommend it. I did have some trouble with the bike rental, it wasn't a well taken care of bike and the staff wasn't happy to hear my feedback.

Awesome place. Free dinners, well set up rooms with lamps, curtains and power points on each bed. Clean new bathrooms. Definitely recommend staying here.
