Capital View Hostel is a little off the beaten path from all the main attractions but it is located in an up and coming neighborhood. Its a few blocks from the nearest coffee shop if you are there on the weekend but its a nice walk. The staff is a super friendly and outgoing crew. They were generous and very... More

I stayed here for one night mainly because I wanted to be in a central location close to Union station in order to catch an early train. The location is great as The Mall is within easy walking distance, as is the station. My room was very basic, which is fine at this price, and the nearby bathroom smelled of... More

from the moment we walked in we were made to feel at home. The staff are friendly, fun and helpful - they made us feel very welcome and gave us good tips for things to do and places to eat. The communal areas are spacious and comfy, with computers, games and tv available for free. Our dorm was clean and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights, I had a friendly welcoming, the rooms are pleasant, people kept saying they were having cold showers, but every shower I had was hot and there was good water pressure so not sure what that was about. There's a group kitchen and lounge, both with every thing you need, it's located pretty close to... More

I was there for two nights early Jan 2014. It's very different from other hostels that I gotta take off my shoes indoors. I really like the building, the staff I met are nice not like super friendly but not rude at all. I never used the kitchen or the room with tv, they look ok to me tho. The... More

I loved my first time in Washington DC but the hostel left me feeling a bit stressed out ... I arrived on the bus which was late and just before arriving got a message that if I didn't arrive by the closing time, that I would be charged extra for late arrival ... this would have been easily avoided if...

I stayed here for 3 nights. The location is good, very close to Chinatown, 5 minutes from the circulator bus (which is a free bus that takes almost everywhere for $1), 15 minutes from the Union Station Train station and only 20 minutes by bus to the White House. I enjoyed my stay here but because I had to work,... More

I decided to take a spontaneous trip to DC one afternoon, and an hour later I was on my way, so I needed a place to stay that was cheap and open. I found this place and took a chance. I endes up getting off at the wrong metro stop, so that put a damper on my arrival. It is... More
