Not safe location in the evening, a lot of crimes! it's was a little bit to find this hostel at first time. The stuff was... More

This hostel is a bit hard to find, but once you get there the staff is really friendly and you feel like home. You can't wear your shoes inside so you must wear a pair of loan loafers. The kitchen is clean and it contains everything you need to cook. There is a fridge and a freezer. There is lockers... More

I stayed on this hostel in August 2014. Just one night. It is a hostel as a hostel is. Young people, big enough rooms. Large kitchen and lounge area. The staff was very helpful. It was clean and very well located, a couple of blocks away from a metro station. There is a lot of information available for tourists and... More

I stayed here on my own, and being only 19 I was a bit nervous. But the vibe in this hostel is so nice! The people that were there were so friendly and welcoming, and was nice to see people of all ages, nationalities, couples, groups, businessmen etc! I was in a 6 mixed room and it just happened that... More

Located well to get to any bars and restaurants as well as seeing the sights of DC. Social space is small but still had some great times. Poker nights and watching films were easily done. Clean throughout but new area to keep shoes needs to be sorted ... Can smell a bit at door. Staff involved with guests and full... More

Staff are nice and friendly if a little hard to find. Seemed to be a queue of people checking in and not enough staff to cover. Good location. Needs a lick of paint and updating. Very loud air conditioner and a broken warm tap in the shower that scolds you. I'd stay again but not soon.

I went here as part of a tour of the great north east. I enjoyed it for the most part, so no complaints! I especially loved the ambiance! How chic and retro! My family and I loved the stay for the most part and I'd definitely come back!
