  • Great location, super nice and helpful staff! Hostel was clean. Lockers and washing machines in the basement, WiFi is slow but sufficient to check emails. I was a bit bothered by the full-blast AC at night (the hostel doesn't want windows to be opened), and the matrasses made a very loud noice everytime somebody moved.. Breakfast includes coffee, orange juice, bagles, PB, jam-like substance and cream cheese. If I could make one recommendation: a few more and better quality choices at breakfast.

  • The Hostel location is very good, you can walk to National Mall, also is easy and pretty close to bus stop e metro station. The bedroons and bathroons are very clean and the breakfast is excellent. The only negative point would be about the beds, they're not comfortable and everytime somebody moves, it makes a loud noise, making you wake up many times during the night.

  • They should have more than one elevator because most of the times you have to wait several minutes for it to arrive.

  • It's a big, multistory type of hostel that seems always packed with groups of school children visiting DC which might kill the atmosphere a bit. That said, it runs smoothly and lacks nothing. Breakfast is decent, staff is friendly and helpful, it’s quite clean and both security and location are excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

  • HI is in a good location in DC so you can walk everywhere. However as someone travelling alone, it's a TERRIBLE hostel. There is no atmosphere or character in the hostel. The cleaning and maintenance staff even walked around with earphones in so that they didn't have to talk to people. It felt like a factory just processing travellers through with no interest in the individual. If you want to travel alone and meet people, DO NOT stay here- stay somewhere smaller.

  • Pro: Very nice breakfast, activities organized by hostel staff for free, free banana, quite clean. Con: Wifi quite slow, only one elevator serving 8 floors and hundreds of guests, short beds. Overall a very good value for money.

  • The hostel is very well located, there is a bus that goes directly from the bus station to two blocks away from the hostel. The facilities were good and the people working there were super kind. Another thing that is really good, is that the price you are told to pay there is final price, you don't get surprised by extras due to taxes, something extremely good when you're a student and have a budget!
