The dorm felt really warm and homey. I had no problem making new friends with the staff and guests there. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. They also have washers and dryers on site. Check in was quick and easy.
Nice hostel. A good place for students and interns on longer stays. the bath room was nice, the linen smelled good.
The place felt more like a friend or relative's house than a hostel or dorm. People were very friendly, guests and staff alike. The house itself is clean and organized. The rooms and bathrooms are also kept clean.
Couldn't stay longer at the time but I'll surely come back.
Everything! We met a lot of amazing people, mostly students. We had so much fun there.
The hostel was super nice and very clean...and probably had the most comfortable beds ever. The staff was very nice and helpful.
There was no sign on the building.
The staff was very helpful and everyone made me feel welcome.
Fast internet, friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms
hard to find at first coz theres no sign outside
It's a great place in DC. clean and easily accessible.
It would have been better if they provided meals as well.
They provided everything I needed for my stay. Great staff!
The place has a very warm ambiance. More like a home than a typical hostel. Really nice.
Under new management. Small and friendly atmosphere. Seemed like home.
Not necessarily differently-abled persons accessible.
It was a really nice place. It was near bus routes and metro station.
The place was just okay, check out process was good because you don't need to return your key, you can just leave.
The room was not large and it was for 8 girls, really crowded. They don't provide change so you really need to prepare the exact amount of money to pay for your stay. It was like 10 minutes walk from the subway station, it's a bit far from the centre of DC.
Everything from room prices to rules. Only 2 bathrooms in the entire house!!! U hv to wait forever in a queue. Even the nearest grocery shop is 1 km far n that is organic! Expensive. Hostel dsnt give u even tea n coffee. Its not allowed to eat or drink even tea or coffee in rooms! U hv to take off ur shoes near the main door n walk to room n other areas barefeet. V.dangerous old staircase that needs repairs.
Best hostel I've been to in DC! The staff there were great. The hostel was just minutes from the metro station.
Very clean and well managed. Best priced hostel in DC.
Everything was clean and organized. The house had a wonderful atmosphere and everyone was just so friendly. Best time I had in DC!
I met some nice people (but not traveller - they live there for e few months)
really bad neighborhood - far away from anything - toooo expensive (25-30$ would be ok) - dirty rooms (the hostel "capital view" is much better ... for the half price)
The staff practiced elitism and racism.
I liked the friendliness of people I met at the hostel! I'm not talking about the staff though! Because they were a bit rough!
The place was in a dangerous 'kinda' neighborhood! safety was important for me since I'm a traveler and i like hanging out all the time. Didn't wanna have problems on the street.
The price is very fair and acceptable
It's a little crowded. You have to stay with other five people in the same room.
The spirit in the house... You feel more like in a flatshare than in a backpacker ! Comfy bed with a true cuilt !!!!
The manager and assistants are helpful and friendly to newly arriving travelers. The overall atmosphere is easygoing. The location is a short walk from several small grocery shops and convenience stores like CVS and 7 -11. There are also fast food and take out restaurants in the vicinity. A DC metro station is a 5 - 10 minute walk away depending on your route and speed which connects you to almost all the DC attractions and the train stations / airport. It is a good value and location for a budget conscious traveler and a you have the opportunity to meet other guests from different locations. I would stay there again.
The 4 bathrooms get used by several guests. They are cleaned daily but still could benefit from being monitored a bit more frequently.
I like the ambiance and guests cooperation.
A bit far to the downton but you can take metro. No exchange money for paying cash.
Couldn't offer decent maps for a traveller with no idea.
