  • I've stayed in hostels before, but my experience with Capital Comfort Hostel left a disgusting taste in my mouth. We reserved a private room in September for a four-night stay in November. The day we were supposed to check in, we showed up only to find out that they had double booked us. After being there for over an hour, we found a hotel on priceline, got our refund, and left. Best decision I ever made. They did not offer us any alternative housing arrangements.

  • The owners overbooked and then had no idea who was where leaving multiple people sleeping on the floor while beds went empty for the night. The location is good as it is located very near the convention center and a metro station.

  • This place was horrid. Bad location, I had to sleep in an open area because the other people staying in the room I was meant to be in had locked it from the inside and the owner couldn't open the door. The club next door is loud, and the neighbourhood isn't great. Would not ever recommend, pay a bit more for another hostel.

  • It was basically the shittiest hostel I stay in. Club right next to it, so you cant sleep. No breakfast, no separate toilets or showers for m/w. Location is good though, close to the metro...

  • I know that most of you looking at this review will likely not care how bad I review this hostel because you're probably more concerned with the cost and will rationalize this post as a disgruntled guest. I implore you to spend the extra couple of dollars to stay somewhere else. This was the most cramped, unclean place I've ever seen people call housing. The location is dangerous and no where near amenities. The website is perhaps the very opposite of the actual hostel in every single way.

  • I had a pleasant stay over all. One problem though is the WiFi inside the rooms is so slow that I had to go to the lobby area to get internet access

  • We didn't get the room we had made reservetion for. It was extremely dirthy, the day we arrived the restroom was constantly out of service. The shower was horrible, there was mold in the shower, very dirthy. Only one shower for 20 people. There were no utensils in the kitchen, not even a table. Sheets were old and dirty. No communication with the staff. It was the worst place we have ever been to.
