The staff who greets everybody "Say good morning with you language" during breakfast. The bed has individual lamp
The bedroom has small space to move around. You just need to sleep there, no other activities.
Tax and breakfast included. Great location. Quiet accommodation. Friendly staff
Very well located, price is ok, the beds are fine and clean, and they offer a wide range of activities. Breakfast was good, Wi-Fi worked
The elevator is slow, the air conditioning was noisy, the light in the shower didn't work and the water was not very hot.
Less than 10 mins walk from subway, 15 mins to White House Staff generally helpful Nice atmosphere, free tours of the city Rooms basic but clean
First time staying in a dorm room, found it difficult sleeping
The kitchen is big enough, staff are nice, good location, clean bed and bathrooms
Nice staff and facility. Location is not bad. It may takes 15mins from union station by Circulator(red line) But circulator's frequency is 20-30mins.(noted every 10mins) But, If I visit again, I will stay again.
Most of the things were excellent: staff, environment, cleanliness, location and comfort!
I just wish you guys didn't charge for things like $4 for locker and $4 for keeping luggage in basement. It gives the vibes of a money making Hotel, which is the opposite of the carefree vibes that a hostel should give. The other hostels I've stayed in usually take a small deposit for the locker's lock and key which is refunded at check out. As for bags, you can put them anywhere for free and pick em up whenever you are ready to leave, at traveller's own risk of course. But you see, there's no "fees" business in hostels. I've you've paid for the room, a person should feel that he is good to go. Also there shouldn't be a daily $3 tax for HI non-members. So that's an extra which people are not mentally prepared to pay for before booking the room. Instead of extra tax for non members, I think you should offer special rates to members, that's okay. But all these last minute fees and taxes can be annoying for the traveller.
Really cheap. Near to National Mall and other attractions. Great free activities. Free good breakfast.
Air conditioner a little bit noisy. Showers could be better.
Location was excellent, only 10/15 minutes away from The White House. I think each bed had a memory foam mattress which was excellent and the air con was perfect (it blew cool air directly over my bed). Decent showers and bathroom facilities in general. Seriously good value for money. There were people staying there of all ages.
The attitude of one of the staff was bizarre. When she booked me in, I found her to be rather rude and abrupt; she seemed annoyed to have to deal with me. Having said that, she was perfectly happy and friendly with other guests whom I imagine would have only good things to say. Maybe I did something to annoy her but I can't think what that could be! Maybe she just doesn't like Brits! (Can't blame her I suppose!)
Luckily I met some new nice friends. The location, facilities, cleanliness, staffs are good. Overall I am happy and value for money.
Nothing I guess
they made me change my room and be out of the hostel for a whole day. It was not cool at all
The free breakfast every morning. And opportunity to make friends during the breakfast. Wonderful team of workers, especially the great guy coordinating the breakfast.
I can not think of one.
30 min walk from the union station, WIFI in rooms (slow in the evenings, though), friendly staff and good breakfast
Clean and good location
Too crowed for the rooms
The location is convenient and the staff is very friendly and helpful. My bunkmate checked in late and discovered that new sheets had not been placed on her bunk. She complained, and the sheets were promptly changed. This was at midnight! There is also a continental breakfast with juice, cereal, toast, and bagels. The internet is free and strong. Overall everything was very good.
In a room with 8-10 people, it's hard to get a good night's sleep. The showers are clean but you only have a flimsy shower curtain to keep you from being seen by others . . . so if you are a modest/shy person, you'd best find another place to stay.
Good location, friendly staff, good breakfast, good Wi-Fi.
Old style rooms.
1. Free bananas! 2. Activities and "international" atmosphere 3. Not very far from the metro-center station 4. Kitchen /dinjng room almost always open 5. Free food storage bin 6. Staff's helpful and ever present
1. The "breakfast" is not that rich and non changing- cereal, bagel, muffin, OJ, coffee 2. Not entirely sure about the cleanliness of the sheets..
Good, secure location. Highly reasonable price. Staff is so kind.
If you don't like dorm...
Great staff Clean Great value Great location
Buen ambiente con gente amable
Hostel is located close to the center, breakfast (really good!) included, kitchen where you can make your own meal, big fridges, lockers in the room big enough for hand luggage, comfortable beds, nice staff, big enough and clean bathroom, wifi all over the place, fast and working all the time and elevator.
I couldn't sleep over night. I was on the top of the twin bed. The person who was in the below bed, on off, turn around all the time. It created so much noise due to poor quality bed.
