Liked: The location is the best!!! It is just within walking distance to many attractions, especially the Pike Place Market, is just right beside the hostel. Another best thing is the big locker under my bed, I just can put all my 3 luggages under it without security worries. The biggest locker I have ever seen in hostel. And the free breakfast and dinner were nice!! I like them!!!

Disliked: Hmm... I would say the free luggage storage after check out. Since it is an open area without care, so I felt unsafety to put valuable things there. Therefore I needed bring all my valuables including my netbook to travel around on my last day. It was pretty terrible and tiring.

Liked: Great Location, Friendly staff, good tours and activities, great breakfast and dinners

Disliked: the room which I stayed in was directly opposite the private lounge...people talking throughout the night and sleep was disturbed. Also, the smell from the cooking in the kitchen filled up my room and stinked my clothes too

Liked: The location of the Green Tortoise cannot be beaten! Right in the heart of Seattle, it is the perfect base for exploring this great city. The cutrains on the bunks are a fantastic idea, giving you a little bit of privacy, even in a dorm room. The bathrooms and kitchen are both clean and spacious and the common area offers a good social atmosphere.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: It´s placed very central, you can reach the best places of town within a few minutes walk. It´s very near to the sea and just around the corner of Pike-marked with a lot of shopping facilities. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful!

Disliked: Doing breakfast on your own might be a lot of fun but takes much time. Almost to many people in the hostel.

Liked: The location was good, and they let me store my bags for the day after I checked out.

Disliked: $20 cash-only key deposit was inconvenient., as I was not notified of it in advance. Two of the workers at the front desk were utterly useless. I asked about activities that were posted in the lobby, and they had no idea what I was talking about. One of them could not even tell me how to get to the airport from the hostel! Are you kidding me?

Liked: Really great hostel. The bedrooms are nice, the curtains on the bunks a really nice touch, and the lockers under the beds a very spacious. Bathrooms were clean and hot water good. Breakfast was pretty good, although I didn't get any waffles! Dinner was free on different days than as advertised so you might want to check that if it influences your booking. Only real bummer about the place is that the wifi doesn't work very well, although it seemed to be better in the bedroom rather than in the lounge area. Staff were friendly and helpful - thank you in particular to Adam for being really helpful (I think that was his name - long blonde hair).
