The best part of this place is the staff. Everyone is extremely nice and make you feel a welcome part of the community. I only wish I had stayed more than one night to talk more with staff and other guests. Also...the living room had xbox and wii ;).
I was initially anxious staying in a hostel as I never had before and I had always associated hostel as something scary dirty etc.. However this place has completely changed my opinion I love it. I stayed for a night. The staff were so friendly it was super clean and homey. They organise activities every night and have free tea and coffee, spices in the kitchen and happy hour 8-9 where you get free beer! The bathrooms were fine I only had to wait once for the bathroom and that was about 10 mins. Would Defo stay again if I went to DC and would recommend for those who want a cheaper stay! I paid 28 dollars for the night. Age doesnt really matter most I would say were in there early 20s though some were older. They accommodate for all!
Easy to find near Union station very good
Shared bathroom and restroom
Perfect location near from Union Station
Too Many beds were put un really small bed rooms. Not enough bathrooms compare to how Many people were sejourning there, and they weren't cleaned properly often enough!
This is a fun, friendly place. Jude, Caroline, and Sander made me feel at home. I will def be back. Great value!! 7 min walk to Union Station. Kenny
Staff are friendly, the place has a nice atmosphere, the hostel is within walking distance of many sights, or at least, within in walking distance to a metro.
Place was really clean, yet homey. Wasn't sterile like some hotels can get. Enjoyed the community and overall friendly atmosphere. Made to feel welcome, regardless of age or ethnicity. Location was exactly what we needed. And option of having a full kitchen and area to do some cooking was really great. Great pricing. Really close to everything, and staff was extremely helpful answering numerous questions.
Some foul language, crude humor.
Great sociable atmosphere in the hostel with friendly and accommodating staff. Very comfortable and secure.
Nothing at all.
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!
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
