  • I have stayed here before and will stay again. Never had a problem, in fact very positive experiences. Since I often arrive in DC using Megabus, use the Circulator bus. You get on that bus steps away from where you get off Megabus. It is $1 and you get off at K/12th street.The hostel is at K/11th. Returning to Union station, get on in front of Potbelly sandwiches,( there is a Circulator bus sign somewhat hidden by a hanging flower pot) and take that back to Union station. Great hostel. love DC.

  • Bigger TV Room and Common Area!
    Owner Comment

    Hey, thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your suggestion on the TV, and we will look into it. 60" TV's used to be big but I guess we are a little out of date :). As for the common areas, I hope you were able to find and us the common areas on both floors, we have the pool table, conference room and eating studying area in addition to the space on the first floor. We currently have a patio that is unavailable due to construction next door but when they finish there will be plenty more space outside for guests to use.

  • This hostel is a great place to stay.....it has all the amenities one needs for an enjoyable stay. However, more & more very young people are choosing to stay here and some of them need some supervision to rein in their exuberance and i guess boredom at times. I was nearly hit by a falling object on the stairs by one of these juveniles! Otherwise this hostel gives you great value for your money!

  • Great, helpful staff. Well located with easy access to most points of interest. Beds/mattresses are very noisy so any movement (ie turning) is amplified.

  • I tired hosteling for the frst time that too on my solo trip, i had best time. I felt very safe and secure. And the best part is to meet different people from different country. The services are great and at very resonable rate. It was overall a very good experience, i would choose hosteling over hotels any day now,

  • Place is welcoming yet it doesn't feel as open and easy to befriend anyone as I'm usually used to. It's a big place, so, be as friendly as you can.

  • The man who ran breakfast every morning was superb! Friendly, professional and informative, and swapped easily from English to Spanish for those guests that required it.
