I'll start with the cons:-
This hostel is pretty basic and only had 2 bathrooms for nearly 20 people, a kitchen but the oven didnt work and a lounge but the couches often had people sleeping on them. Also the guy who managed the place was pretty rude, not to me personally but to some of his staff and other guests, most notably a pair of Turkish girls who didnt speak good English. He seemed like he really couldnt be bothered with his job.
Now for the pros:-
This hostel is located in a brilliant area of Washington DC on a main road with bars, clubs and virtually every kind of restaurant. There are plenty of people milling about outside all the time and it felt very safe, even at night. There was a great atmosphere in the common room and all the other guests were nice. The area is very well served by buses and a nice walk to the subway stop. Its only about a 20-30 minute walk into Downtown DC and during my visit in late August was really nice. The location more than made up for the rude manager in my opinion.
