  • This place is good. But loud noise from outside window in the morning! I can't sleep from 5 o'clock.

  • Very big and unpersonal hostel. You get a good bed and clean rooms but the staff is repeating their by heart answers to your questions sometimes missing the point. The elevator was out of order (8 floors!) and it seemed to be already for a while. 2 of 3 showers in my floor were out of order, but there were enough on other floors. Also the hot water system was running on backup even though I didn't feel the water was too cold. And you have to pay extra for everything.This hostel is simply to big.

  • The faucets for washing faces and hands could be better. They're so hard to use!

  • Lots of pros: super friendly staff, free breakfast, comfortable communal spaces, fantastic location next to a capital bikeshare rack or a 15 minute walk to the museums/monuments downtown. Only con: the internet, at least when I visited, was extremely slow. Would definitely stay here again.

  • The HI - Washington DC Hostel is located near Central Station. The staff in the hostel are very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is excellent, security is excellent, and the location is perfect. The hostel provides free wifi, free breakfast, and free towel. The rooms are very large and the hostel has a large living room in the first floor where you can easily meet new friends. Overall, I highly recommend this hostel for both local and international students. Thanks!! A+

  • This was my first time on a hostel and it did live up to expectations. Location is perfect, ambient was very friendly and the night tour to the monuments (free!!) that they offer is a great moment to make new friends and share experiences. Thumbs up!
