  • It takes a while to get there from the city center but way is quite easy. Hilltop Hostel is located in an old house with garden and a porch - very nice place to chill during evenings or lazy mornings. Place could be more renovated and clean but atmosphere of real backpackers' place repay for inconvenience. Unfortunately I have to say that our food from the kitchen was permanently stolen - even if signed.

  • Wouldn't recommend. This is due to the unfriendly/aggressive staff and the unfriendly atmosphere that this creates. AVIOD

  • Awesome location and environment; excellent access to the metro. Friendly staff. Linens + towel included. There does not seem to be lockers but they allow bags on the bed. Open access around the clock but there's a door code for security. Bathrooms were very clean and functional. There seemed to be some music playing around the clock which didn't bother me-- I could hear the bass notes from the dorms upstairs. The metro fare to get out there is worthwhile. My hostel of choice when in DC.

  • I had a very good time at the Hilltop Hostel. It has a real "home-y" atmosphere, with comfy couches and holiday decorations. The back porch and yard are lovely and I spent a lot of time out there sitting in the sunshine with the birds. The staff and other guests were friendly and helpful and it made for a peaceful and happy stay. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Nice hostel if your really just looking for somewhere to sleep! Wasnt very lively but we only need a bed for the night so that wasnt a big deal. Friendly staff, secure, right next to train station which was great! Needs a few 'touch ups' though :)
