We proudly announce the Grand Re-opening and Remodel of the Seattle Green Tortoise Hostel on September 16, 2006. Our new location is conveniently located at First Ave. and Pike Street, right around the corner from our old Hostel, and across the street from the famous Pike Place Market. The new hostel, with a view of the Puget Sound and the Market, boasts 30 newly-remodeled bunk rooms in the elegantly restored Elliot Hotel Building, which once served as short-term housing for loggers, dock workers, and Miners who came to Seattle in the early 20th century. The beautiful historical building has plenty of modern charms too: European style bath and shower rooms are brand new, as are the kitchen and common areas. We are within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, The Pike Place Market, The Space Needle, The Experience Music Project, Pioneer Square, and more. Plus, we have….

The Green Tortoise's accommodating staff can arrange tours to explore the city or make suggestions for independent travel. An extensive information board lists what to see and do and how to get around.
Pike Place Market is famous for fish-throwing, fresh local produce, bakeries, flower shops, cafes, the original Starbucks location, and dozens of ethnic food stalls and restaurants. This colorful neighborhood is also one of the city's safest, and our hostel is a close walk to such famous landmarks as Seattle Center (where the Space Needle and the Experience Music Project *AKA the Jimmy Hendrix museum * are located), Pioneer Square, the Waterfront, the Washington State Ferries to nearby communities, Capitol Hill, and Queen Anne.
Coming to town for a live music show? Come check us out -- we're located pretty much in the heart of the live music scene with venues like the Crocodile Cafe, the Showbox Theater, the Paramount Theater, and the Moore Theater all just blocks away from us.
The Green Tortoise Hostel offers the best value for your dollar. All of our prices include taxes. We also offer free breakfast, 9 free high speed Internet access terminals, and free dinner on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We also sell discounted tickets for movies and the Experience Music Project (you save $6).
The Green Tortoise Hostel has an age restriction and cannot accommodate minors (under 18 years old) in dorm rooms. Minors traveling with adults must book a private room. If you have any questions about this policy or would like to explain your circumstances, you must contact us directly.

The World Famous Green Tortoise Adventure Travel began over 30 years ago, with a hostel on wheels and the realization that beautiful places, great food, and sociable people were the only essentials for gratifying travel experiences. The Green Tortoise hostels in San Francisco and Seattle are built on this fine tradition. The Green Tortoise San Francisco and Seattle hostels are created around a social communal experience.
