In the middle of an expensive tour across North America, me, my husband and 16 year old son needed a budget place in Seattle as our base for a few days. The Green Tortoise Hostel proved to be perfect!
As the rest of our accommodation was to be in 4* hotels/ with family we did wonder how this stay would measure up. Needn't have worried! We had booked well in advance and reserved a room to ourselves, with 2 pairs of large bunk beds, each with their own curtain, fan and light. Large lockable underbed storage (take your own padlock if sharing the room with strangers). Room was tired in hotel standards - fine from a hostel standard.
Bathroom facilities were excellent - they look like they had been recently refurbished and were very spacious. Great showers with toilet, never needed to wait long for a shower.
Breakfast was a help yourself, make your own pancakes/ fried eggs etc all included in the price. A couple of nights of the week an evening meal is included too! We had a terrific spag bol.
Free internet and printing facility for tickets etc. Large lounge and dining space, very helpful staff, who lay on regular tours/ pub crawls etc for those wanting to see Seattle and/ or opportunity to connect with others here.
Finally - GREAT LOCATION! Right by Pike Place Market and the original Starbucks! VIbrant area in the daytime - close to the waterfront and transport connections. GREAT value for money. We'd come back here for sure.
