Staying here was very strange as a solo traveller because it is more like a house than a hostel. People are living there for 2-3 months at a time for internships and the like. The floors haven't been vacuumed in a long time. There was one shower between about 15 girls which meant you had to plan when you needed to shower and keep checking if it was free. I am a female travelling alone and I didn't feel particularly safe in the neighbourhood after dark. The train station is about 4 blocks away but not too long a walk. Not a party atmosphere at all as the lounge is like your tv room at home. I recommend it for long periods and if you're into the homely thing. Don't go expecting to get advice on where and how to see DC they don't have maps of any kind.
