The location was great, an easy bus ride or walk from the main attractions of Washington and the street itself has got loads of great restaurants and bars.
The hostel mentions that it has free parking, which is a bit misleading - they have one pass to a nearby carpark, which is available on a first come first serve basis, and if that has already been given out you will have to pay.
The guy who checked us in was not the most welcoming, and did insist in being paid in cash, which we were not told about when we booked. We paid him and he gave us change from a huge stack of notes, but when we asked him about 5 minutes later to change a $5 to $1 he said he had no change on him. Petty but fairly indicative of the attitude of the staff.
We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm, which appeared at first glance to be reasonably clean, but the next door bathroom had a completely full bin and was generally dirty, as was the kitchen. When we checked out we took our sheets off and saw a used condom under the bed so not too sure when the room was last properly cleaned.
