Although staff was quite nice that place is not for me. It is old building and not renovated. Shower was broken. It was clean but you felt that old style which was not nice in this case. Breakfast was extremely poor - I have not seen so diluted coffee! The location is not the best one.

I only stayed there for 3 days and it was totally worth it! It's not a party hostel, so if you're into parties and all that, you better look for another place. It's good located, about 20 minutes walking until National Mall, only 1,5 block from the subway and near to supermarkets and restaurants. Staff is nice and always trying... More

This is great accommodation at a relatively low cost. It has all the basics that you need (shared bathroom, breakfast etc) but is not overly fancy (which is fine by me). The rooms are clean and they provide lockers to safely store your stuff. The hostel seemed very safe and secure as you need pass code to get into the... More

The bones of this hostel are generally what I like in a hostel. It is pretty small, and is located in an older, multi level (4 levels perhaps?) house. It is only a block and a half from a metro, 5 minute walk from a great supermarket, and a half hour walk to the Mall. I was in a 4... More

Staying in this hostel is an excellent experience. Its like home away from home. Ron the owner of the hostel was very hospitable. You will meet different nationalities and travellers too in short stay. I would highly recommended this place for budget travellers. Aha, I must not forget the place has free hi-speed internet anywhere in the house. Free breakfast... More

As I was traveling alone to DC for four nights, I needed to connect to some other people who would be open to experience the city with me. As I had the intention to see all the sites in three days, I was very happy to meet two others during breakfast, one English and one American, who were willing to... More

The bing map on this site shows the wrong place. If you copy past the address onto google maps you get the correct location (under a different name). Know the location before you go as there is very few indication from the outside. They have a backyard that is good to park exactly 1 car and it is paying. You... More
