  • Accommodations were very inexpensive, however, there was no locker so you could safeguard valuables. Also, the washrooms were not clean and there was visible mold in areas like the mirror (probably due to the lack of exhaust fan in the washroom).

  • Incredible hostel, location, staff, and value. Stayed for 3 days and couldn't have asked for more. Read a review when checking it out that said bathrooms smelt bad, but didn't find any problems in either of the two bathrooms. Everyone there was amazing. Very diverse, from Asia, Europe, Canada and more. 711 convenience store next to the hostel was perfect for all food, and open around the clock (which was good, as I came back from downtown late at night). Metro and bus were VERY convenient.

  • I really liked the hostel. It has a great atmosfere and nice people. Bill, the manager is very kind and knows Washington well. He gives great advice on where to go and even knows non tourist neighbourhoods (i had to do some interviews). The bus is near the hostel and very convenient, and you are in no time in the downtown.

  • The only thing is that it's a little far and a bit messy, but for the price it was fine.

  • Bill! It's late to write review but I haven't forget your help and kindness. Can't believe to meet hostel owner like you. I'm sure everyone will be satisfied for staying in your hostel. Thanks for your consideration. Hope you are going to be well =)

  • Bill is amazing. Well-informed, kind and helpful. Cleanliness of a place depends on the attitude of the tourists. I had no reason to complaint.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
