          A fellow Quaker told me about this hostel. Like others reviewers I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The location is a big plus. It's a 20 minute walk from Union Station and it's located about 6 blocks east of the Capitol Building,...More

          I believe it was $45 per night per person (including tax). May be cheaper with group rates (we were not traveling as a group)
