Perfect location, people from all over the world, organized pubcrawl was great even though it was a Tuesday night, breakfast was delicious... loved Seattle and will definitely stay at the Green Tortoise whenever I make it back!
It is not right in the middle of the downtown, about a 20min walk from the main tourist attractions. It is a new hostel, so the facilities are great and it is very clean, but it is more of a hotel than a hostel. Breakfast isn't included, but it has everything else you could need as a backpacker including a well equipped kitchen. Staff was somewhat helpful, but not the friendliest. We had to move rooms due to an electrical problem and were downgraded without compensation.
Very cool atmosphere! The lounge area was great in that you could have some drinks and get to know other travellers at night, but also relax and watch a movie or read during the day. Staff was very knowledgeable about the area and it is close to lots of attractions. Farsi, the owner, likes to get to know everyone and bring people together for food and drinks. Clean and well equipped kitchen.
Staff was very helpful, all Slovenian and had great suggestions for things to do. Very clean, kitchen was great and breakfast was included. We did not have time to take advantage of the day trips but they do offer a wide variety. It was quiet when we were there but we did meet other travellers and had a really great night out on the town. Highly recommended!
