    Great location but it's location also makes it a hub for bums to camp out the front. It's clean and safe inside and there are so many things you can join in and do each day.

Definitely coming back on vacation, not really a place to work out of

Great location! Fun activities, lots of amenities, very clean, great value. My only issues are the bare bones free breakfast and the snooty staff. While half of the folks on staff are warm, inclusive, inviting, and personable, the other half are clickish, cold, and judgemental. I overheard some members of the staff making fun of other guests. Also while working late in the "business center" after staying here for almost a week the night clerk questioned me excessively, called my response hostile, questioned the honesty of my answer and explained to me how strange I looked and how justified they were to think I wasn't a paid guest but someone camped out in their loby. I felt like a total freak but didn't have anywhere else to go and didn't want to wake up the other women in my dorm but I went to my room any way and sat still in the dark for a couple hours. A totally crappy ending to a stressful day. I'd still stay here again and recommend the place to folks on vacation. But I'd tell my friends and family maybe to stay somewhere a little more accepting and inclusive. If you look like your homeless, stay somewhere else.

Awesome, sociable atmosphere at this hostel. Great for solo travellers looking to meet people, especially on the hostel-run outings/excursions that they have every day. Compared to the dozens of other hostels I've been in, even the facilities and cleanliness are pretty up there

A good breakfast is provided daily and starts very early for those who want. The free dinner was excellent, way beyond what I had expected. The location couldn't be better, right in the middle of downtown but still quiet enough to sleep when you need to. Lots of social activities are organised for those interested, altogether a great hostel.

The location is right at Pike Place market which was cool to see. The Parks Tour was a cool way to see the city and I was taken to a great restaurant!

The hostel was very friendly and there were always things happening. We went on pub crawls, tours and even got a free dinner. It was really easy to meet people. The curtains attached to each bed allowed for privacy when needed and the super large individual bathrooms were a treat!

We stayed at the GreenTortoise with 26 students. They loved the rooms, they found them to look like cabins on a ship, and werde stoked about free breakfast. Staff was very helpful und very friendly at all times. The location of the hostel is also perfect

Great!
