Really impressed with the facilities here.
The security is great, with a swipe card not only needed to access the rooms, but to access anywhere upstairs areas at all. This means unless you have a swipe card, you won't get passed the lobby.
The kitchen is a commercial kitchen with amazing facilities. It made cooking a breeze, which was very enjoyable.
The are great activities offered which allow you to mingle with different people. I went to the baseball for $10 with the hostel, and got fantastic seats too.
The location is great too - very close to all monuments of interest, the museums, and a short bus ride to Georgetown.
Being a HI, there is no alcohol allowed within the hostel (and there was a HEAP of kids around anyway); however this is a very small disadvantage.
I would happily recommend this hostel to anyone, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
