location and staff
room is a bit small but acceptable.
Really friendly staff, Kitchen for own use & free Tea, Coffee and bananas all the time! Good Wifi connection, Good breakfast! Activitys for free time (pooltabel, tv, computers, instuments...) & free events depending on day (tours, karaoke..) I loved it and made so many new friends.
I liked the clean, warm and best area location of Hostel, that is best for money. Staff is very friendly. Good free food and free wifi adds in its plus points. Always the morning time warm welcome of John in kitchen.
Location No alcohol allowed Pretty quiet Breakfast
Some bathroom are very cold They are not flexible when you extend your stay, they ask you to change room because someone is coming but the rooms are almost empty, so anyway you have to check out at 11:00 AM and check in at 3:00 PM even if you stay in the Hostel. Luguage storage 4 dollars Iron Bunk bed pretty Noisy
1. the price 2. the staff 3. the staff's ability to problem solve and help the traveler with an alarm clock, directions etc etc etc 4. the new paint job
Next time that I come may I volunteer to work on your bathroom sinks so that they run faster? The dirty water leaves the sinks so slowly that it leaves a mess in the bowl. I believe it is because the overflow drain is clogged and does not allow air through as the water tries to exit. Would love to fix it!
Kind dining staff
No elevator even my room was on 6 floor. The worst facilities where i have stayed
I used to stay here when I first backpacking to Washington DC area in mid-1990s, so there is some sentimental value for me. The location is good and considering how pricey DC accommodation is (even in frozen late January), the price of this place is also a relative bargain.
The facilities are quite old, the space is quite tight. At my second stay in January, the elevator wasn't even working. I had to climb up to my room on 5th floor (which is okay for me, but may be tiring for many other guests) The dining area is nicely arranged but very crowded in morning "rush hour."
Hostel is in good location to walk or catch train to museums. I stayed in private room and it was great. Overall it is very simple, building is old and is currently being renovated (lift not working which was a bummer, however I was told at time of booking and a safe member helped me carry my suitcase to the 6th floor). Until renovations are finished this place is clean, safe and well located but don't expect any other bells and whistles. great potential though and I enjoyed my stay. Went on one tour/activity with other hostellers and our guide was fantastic and it was a lot of fun!
Just having come from Hostelling International Boston, this was a massive step down despite prices being on par, but thats because Boston is brand spanking new. I believe Washington is renovating and it should be great once it is all finished! Only minor complaints were - staff guy at breakfast is extrememly in your face and loud. It didn't bother me most of the time, but one morning I was just not in the mood to be forced to talk to people so I took breakfast back to my room - internet wouldn't work (time out) from about 5pm in the afternoon for the rest of the evening. All other times it was fine.
low price good location I really love the kitchen A warm atmosphere
During my stay the elevator was out of service and I should bring all my luggage to the forth floor and it was terrible
staff not very welcoming noise from other rooms even during midnight
Slow wifi, squeeky beds, cold shower room and water
The washroom is pretty clean. The breakfast has multiple choices.
The breakfast run out pretty fast, but resupply didn't keep up. When the elevator was not working, it would be more thoughtful if they could provide free storage for big luggage.
The whole thing. I had a great stay in this hostel. The staff is great especially John, the breakfast attendant.
Elevator is under renovation.

close to downtown all tax included
good breakfast and best wifi
Bad bed, dirty shower room
Staff, location, price
It was very very very cold in the bathroom, so it's easily to catch a cold if you do not have high slippers, And my bed linen was with holes. So I think it could be much better than that.
everything even the elevator and hot water are broken
vatilation blows directly to bed
I felt frustrated when I used water in the bathroom because the pressure of water was so weak and I couldn't make water keep running. Water kept stop running after even a few seconds.
The staff and lovley environment.
good location strong wifi free breakfast
seems like many things are under maintenance, e.g. lift (it will be tough if you are living on higher floor) , some parts of the washroom are also not available
location food staff
Staff is amazingly nice and understanding to accommodate those little things that make one's trip so much better. Location wise will won't get much better than that for the price. Totally worth it if you know what to expect from a cool nice hostel.
Location is good. Near to metro station.
The bathroom was too cold.
