Location is good. Near to metro station.
The bathroom was too cold.
This hostel is very central in Washington. We are a couple who stayed in a private room and the bunk bed was double in the bottom, so we could stay together in the same bed. The shared bathroom is divided for males and females and there was one of which for the whole floor, so it was always free (no need to queue for shower). The breakfast is great and diverse. The hostel has several free activities and free bananas at the guests' disposal every afternoon. They gave us a map, which was very helpful. We visited everything in the city walking, so the hostel's location is great for that. Overall, I totally recommend this place!
Good breakfast and good security.no real complaints
Lift slow, but a slow lift is better than no liift.
Staff is friendly. Fee breakfast is a cool place to socialise. It makes you feel at home.
Hmmm..nothing specific. I loved it all.
Close enough location Clean Comfortable
Elevator is slow and noisy Sirens are noisy overnight
Location Staff are the best Free tours and guided walks Breakfast great Facilities
Expensive parking off site but normal for Washington
Breakfast included Size of lockers Size and cleanliness of bathrooms
Staff - uncommunicative and unfriendly
Neighbourghood Friendly staff Activities
Paper windows (we could hear everything and it was cold), paper walls (we could hear the neighbours), whole in the wall, no TV, very very slow internet, old lift, bathroom not clean enough
Friendly staff and value for money.
Hot water did not work properly.
Fun people and free bannanas
The room was way to hot. We opened the window, but it was always still too hot, and the bed was too short for me and saggy. Also, the locker was inadequate for me this time. Might be okay, but not for this trip.
The location, friendly staff, breakfast and lounge area while we had to wait for plan.
We think my husband got bitten by bedbugs..a real worry for you
cool staff, great breakfast, cool tours, nice kitchen I liked the shape of my room (a U), which seems a bit odd, but i was at the end of the room so it was almost like having a private bedroom
no nights out (pub crawls or anything), slowest elevator ever
Cleaned, Cool, Organized.
The bed could be better.
-It is cheap -Location -Breakfast
Great vegetarian food in the cafe! Also the free central park tour with Bob was very good!
The second night I was there, I could hear loud banging upstairs the whole night... No one in the dorm room could sleep well.
Nice staff. Big room. Good kitchen although sometimes too crowded.
Basic breakfast, a bit far from subway station and supermarket.
Good atmosphere, breakfast, more or less nearby the main attractions, wifi works in every places, well prepared staff.
Drink beer isn't permitted any time in any place. The lift us old and very slow.
Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, clean place, nice atmosphere.
the quality was as expected of an HI hostel - clean and comfortable.
the staff didn't seem that much into recycling. i tried to give my map of the area back to them to reuse for the next guest since it was in good condition but was told that they are not my garbage disposal and to find somewhere to throw it out myself. the attitude was disappointing, especially since the hostel tries to encourage hostellers to buy local, minimise impact etc.
John in the breakfast room was so happy every morning, it was infectious! Showers/toilets seemed to be cleaned daily. Organised activities for Halloween.
Good morning in other language.
Some plugs were not working. Wi fi too slow some times. No health option no the breakfast.
1.Hostel tours - I think it is a great way to explore the city as well as meet some interesting folks. 2.Good breakfast and round the clock coffee. Clean and well equipped kitchen. 2.Clean rooms and bathrooms. 4.Friendly and helpful staff.
