The World Famous Green Tortoise Adventure Travel began over 40 years ago, with one sturdy bus and the realization that beautiful places, great food, and sociable people were the only essentials for gratifying travel experiences.
The Green Tortoise hostels in Seattle and San Francisco are built on the fine tradition of a social communal experience. We have expanded and refined the hostel experience with free internet, free meals, private bathrooms, and comforts that make The Green Tortoise unique.
