Lonely Planet review

An international crowd of young party-scene backpackers flocks to the Green Tortoise. It’s on Broadway, North Beach’s seedy (though safe) strip-joint strip. If you’re into rowdy hostels, look no further. Bars, restaurants and cafes are right around the corner. No curfew.

Our independent authors have visited Green Tortoise Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in North Beach & Chinatown.
