  • Everyone was very nice and it was a diverse and interesting crowd. However, room 7 was very cold, on account of a window A/C unit that was installed in such a way that an inch-wide gap underneath lets in a constant stream of freezing air (in January). In the middle of the night, I realized this and had to figure out how to block the air from coming in and put on lots of more clothes. Also, the A/C unit itself was very dirty, to the point that I felt compelled to clean it. The kitchen, too.

  • For me it was a bad place. Far enough from downtown and Smithsonian Museums. Dirty. Cold. Bad breakfast. The owner, Steve is unbelievable impolite. I will never recommend to someone else to stay in this hostel.

  • My favorite hostel I've ever stayed at. The people were wonderful, staff and guests, the bed was good, the WiFi was fast, and the location was good enough where I could walk or ride a bus to just about anywhere.

  • Very well located, a lot of bars and restaurants on the street. If you like sports there are also plenty of stuff to do in a field 5mi. Walking from there. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the Ac was working perfectly. I felt safe and left the room without any fear of being stolen. You won't find a better place at this price.
