They don't care if you let them know that you're coming at 9:45 pm, you'll be out in the cold without a hotel. They lie and say you can come at 9:45 and 15 minutes after check in.
The people at the Capitol View were really kind and trying to solve our problems right away.
The personal at the luxuy apartment (Masscourt luxury apartments) were rude and unpolite. We had a reservation that started with a check in at 11 am and the receptionist was rude about it and told us we had to do the check in at 4 pm. We had to go back to Capitol View hostels (where they were REALLY nice about it) and came back again to another concierge who was also kind of rude to us because the check in was supposely at 4 pm again. With a lot of effort, he finally agreed to do the check in at 11 am.
Relatively clean hostel. easy procedure. good location but I don't think it was worth the price.
I spent 2 cold mornings because they turned the heating off ti save some money I guess. And most if the time there was no staff.
Stanley was so lovely staying late to let me in. Very friendly staff, good facilities and comfortable bed!
Great location ~5 min walk from the conference centre and very close to the main sights etc. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.
Kitchen cupboards rather than open shelves for storing food would be a good idea.
Excellent location Very clean Nice and friendly star
Good location, as very central and close to Union Station, the federal triangle and downtown. The staff was kind and supportive.
I could feel the spring of my mattress in my back all time... The shower facilities should be checked for their functionality more often, some fell in pieces...
I love this place and the people.
Nice and friendly place, close to the main attractions. Room and bathroom are clean. Internet connection everywhere.
Breakfast not included
The staff was very friendly and helpful especially staffer Sarah.
Everything was in order. The only thing was I did not receive a receipt onsite for my cash payment. My receipt was sent by email to my office.
I dont think they changed the bed...
Very spaceous Good beds Very good location Rooftop pool and jacuzzi were delicious
Temperature in room very high, couldn't lower it despite help from concierge
The room was infested with ticks / O quarto estava cheio de carrapatos
The staff, the bed, the roof top pool, all wonderful!
1. Got a refund 2. Sarah the receptionist is good
Was meant to stay here 3 nights, but ended up staying 1 night and checking into another hostel because I got bed bugs. I can 100% confirm they were bed bugs despite the manager coming up with 100 other excuses. The whole place is old, smelly, falling apart and not particularly clean. Also there are homeless people outside yelling at all hours of the night. I would recommend the HI Washington as it is cheaper and much better located and even if it says it's full, it probably isn't because they leave space for walk-in customers.
The hostel is at the good place near the city centre. The rooms, beds, bathrooms were clean and comfortable. There were friendly peoples. Good place for staying for short time.
The bathrooms are not separated (the bathrooms are used by men and women), however, there is a lot of privacy. You have to bring your own locks or you can buy locks for $5.
One of the best hostels I've been to. Friendly staff, pretty good wifi and quite comfortable dormitories. Great location and nice roommates.
Someone stole my food from the common kitchen. No mirror in the nearest bathroom.
nice stuff, nice place , close to town ...
Stanley didn't make me breakfast, and there was no free vodka ...
we loved the apartment and building, it's proximity to tourist monuments and things to do. The wise guys pizza joint on the bottom floor is a must visit and eat. If you want to save, Walmart is two blocks away and doesn't charge for underground parking.
website, it was wrong, no 1100 checkin as stated and could not get in room till 1600. Had groceries and nothing scheduled to do until after checkin. If getting apartment, it is located elsewhere and the staff doesn't care. Never received a receipt online or in person, not sure of additional charges yet. Parking is very expensive and closes early, had to park on street twice.
Friendly staff, reasonable price, great location near the National Mall.
WiFi is very unstable
Spacious, well furnished apartment; Comfortable bed; Great location - close to all the sites and only a few blocks to Metro; Secure building; Great view from the roof top patio; I would definitely stay here again!
No kitchen garbage can - just a loose bag in the cupboard; very few utensils/pots and pans. Different room for first night due to a mix-up, but they were very nice about it and made the switch easier by moving my belongings while I was at my conference the next day.
Staff, Friendliness, helpfulness, kitchen facilities, comfy bed.
Does not have someone to open the door before 10:00 a.m.
the receptionist Sara is very nice and helpful.
