This is a pretty standard hostel, the price per night is very reasonable. The place is very clean, you will find clean bedsheets and towels. But remember to clean up after yourself as there are many rules and "fines" for not cleaning up after yourself. Avoid the bottom room in winter as the boiler downstairs puts out some serious heat,...

Loved this place. Stayed there with 6 friends while visiting DC, the place was awesome. The staff, and boss were all really nice, lot of good and funny chats with them. Place was clean, everything is always ready for you to use (towels, irons, kitchen, free books, tv, computer..) all is free and community based. I recommend it to everyone.... More

Had a great stay. The staff were lovely and helpful, the place was clean and the atmosphere was very nice. It only takes a couple of hours for you to feel completely at home. I would definitely recommend and I will be back.

Came here just for one night to hang out around the city and wasn't dissapointed. Great well informed stuff who made me feel this stay even more like at home. Great... More

This hostel is perfect if you're a young traveler like me who is looking to meet people and have a sociable time. All the communal areas are fairly cozy which means that you have to talk and interact with others; the only people that weren't getting to know the others were the older residents (35+). The beds are comfortable and... More

There was an ok social area, there was some food (just pancakes) provided in the mornings, there was a bed and air conditioning, wifi etcThe wifi could have had better connectivity throughout the hostel, this needs to be fixed. Some of the rules were a bit... More

Free breakfast was great! Showers didn't look very clean though, hostel should pay more attention to this. Also saw some bugs in the hallways. But great value! Just note that their "luggage storage room" is just a open spot in the hallway, with a camera. Was not a problem for me, but might be for some people. I would stay... More
