  • 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.

  • The only good thing about this hostel was the location. The room was tiny, and we couldn't lock the door from outside, internet never worked, we had to go to the entrance to be connected. There was only one (alway broken) shower and toilet for 15 people !! Inadmissible. No table to eat. And the 'receptionist' guy was rude, always cursing and using vulgar word. Someone should inspect and close this 'hostel'. BIG WASTE OF MONEY ! Don't go there !!!! Deborah from Brazil

  • The hostel was fine, but there were no dishes and tables in the kitchen! Also no WiFi-connection in the room (and a really bad internet-connection)

  • Washington is a very nice city but I am not all recomanding this hostel, and I saw a lot of hostels in the USA. If you are only looking for a bed, it's ok but a little expensive, For atmosphere and facilities, forget it. Just : there are no table and no equipments in the kitchen. So it's difficult to seat and to have a nice time with people you've just met.

  • When I got there, the staff sent me to another room. In another building. The room was better, but this situation is a little frightening since I was traveling alone and it was late in the night. Oh, and they don't like taking cash at the Hostel, don't ask me why, but they prefer credit card.

  • It is a good and safe hotel for this price. If you want to have party you should just to go upstairs but if you want to have clean towels in the early morning - it is hard to find someone who can give it to you because all stuff are sleeping after party-night

  • Location and value of money for this hostel if thinking about these thing you must go and stay at this hostel. Dinning Table & Chairs are Missing in Kitchen and as well Plates and Cooking Pans. No. of Bath rooms must increase in your 2nd Building.
