I had the most amazing experience at the Green Tortoise. The staff and guests made the hostel feel like a home. The work was fair & introduced me to people that have changed my life—I’m currently backpacking across Washington with tradeworkers/past tradeworkers I met at the hostel :) I can’t wait to make my way back for more family dinners! It has been one of the greatest joys of my life working at this hostel and experiencing life with everyone in Seattle.
