Meeting people, stuff and overall the atmosphere of the place.
The only thing is that wifi was so slow I couldn't do anything. Probably because of overload of users.
We felt very welcome and comfortable. The hostel is very clean and tidy. It is lovely and cozy inside, people are very nice, open minded and make you feel good. Nice talks and laughter.
The position is awesome, near supermarket, union centre, and easy to tour famouse spot in city. A small place with well organized facilities.
The kitchen room is too small.
I liked the hospitality and how helpful the employees were there are exceptional employees that made the life the very appreciative. they are real and caring and very flexible and friendly. I LOVE as well the lady who clean she does it perfectly well.
I think in general it was fair although some 1or 2 employees seems to exaggerate who they are. I love the flexibility and how much reliable it is for us who travel far. The hot water in the second floor is a little unreliable. The mouse should be gotten rid of it is discouraging despite the high hygiene.
What didn't I like? This hostel was the epitome of what I expect from hostels. The staff was downright the most amazing people, who are there to help you, welcome you, and make you laugh...A Lot. They work so hard (and do a phenomenal job) to keep the hostel clean, hospitable, welcoming, safe, and fun! They took us out on city tours, pub crawls, and we spent so much time playing games or watching tv in the lounge. Another great thing about the hostel is meeting other awesome travelers from around the world! The facilities were very clean, the beds were comfy and clean, the atmosphere was warm and wonderful, the staff was great, and the location is ideal as it is so close to Union Station (and lots of great restaurants!). I definitely recommend staying here!
Honestly, I have no complaints! It's a great value for your money! Stay here if you're coming to D.c! You won't regret it ;)
The staff were friendly and a lot of fun. The location is good as there is a bus stop just outside and it is walking distance to Union station.
Not enough bathrooms. Also there is no insulation in the walls and the doors don't seal so you can hear people in the bathroom and corridor.
Located right by union station, near all the H street fun AND both staff and guests were completely nice and chill.
Too many stairs, if you're asthmatic,lazy or hate climbing stairs it's gonna be a long stay.
I like that they have happy hour and even night tour
Wifi coverage is not that good in the room
this is one of best hostel iv ever been. Staff are so nice and they give different peogram and free beer every night place is so cozy!
The stuff was really friendly
This hostel is in the part of the town with many homeless people walking around and it looks really unsafe! The beds where so old. Rooms look nothing like ones in pictures. There was a sheet covering the window. Over all it all looks really creepy! Only positive thing is that the front for is look from inside and covered with cam but it did not help me feel safe. I possible please avoid this place.
Staff is wonderful, location..cant be beat..ultra comfortable beds/soft good quality linen..extremely clean..hope they take the concept to more cities!
The staff was really friendly and it was easy to find him and the owner busy cleaning the hostel. There were dolls in a room and living room and i really like it.
They said they provide pancake but it was nothing more than a power,,, which was disappointing. but they don't have obligation to feed me so I won't matter this. And the location is pretty bad to reach with the subway
- location - staff - cleanliness - accomodation
Kind staffs. Happy Hours. people who i met here. Location.-close to Union station. Warm water.
Laundry... the only bad thing..
Everything is nice.
Friendly environment. Great people and staff. Happy hours with free beer.
Staff were kind and helpful. The bed was really comfortable and clean, super close to the huge supermarket.
a little bit far from the metro station, but can take the bus instead of it.
Lobby could be a good meeting point
I really cannot stand it when a hostel imposes strange rules and requires you to take off your shoes
Location was absolutely wonderful! Everything was within walking distance, or a bus ride away if need be. The staff was generally helpful and friendly, and laundry services were available - free of charge. They clean the place everyday, ensuring no crusted over stains and/or dirt. Despite the location of the power outlets, it was very nice that there were many extension cords all over the place. Needless to say, I really got the (great!) value for my money.
Due to its location and its setup, noise has to be an accepted fact -- from the roommates' nightly noises to the sirens wailing outside (occasionally, not always!).
. Overall it was a good stay. Spanish woman hard worker, each day keeps keeps rooms clean. Staff is always around to help.
Some staffs' excessive kindness is not real. Although there are enough bathrooms, time should be limited no more 30min, several times I waited 1hr. Staff should tell persons who smell too bad to do something.
24/7 lobby Security(surveillance camera, lockers) Kind staffs Activities such as bar hop-pings Clean
Good location near the main railway/bus station, also good connectivity to city centre. Highly recommended for any backpacker.
Excellent hostel! Good service!
Comfortable bed, helpful staff
Bathrooms didn't have soap, bathrooms were not that clean/furnished well
Staff did an excellent job making all the guests feel welcome and comfortable. Hostel has a living room where everyone is relaxing and is a great place to meet new people. The staff really put in a lot of effort to make sure everyone is having a great time by hosting tours, game nights and pub crawls
