We went to DC for the week end and picked a random hostel and that was an excellent choice. The location is pretty good and we met some very nice people. Moreover, the hostel ordered pizza on Saturday night for everyone which was perfect before going out.

Ok, I don´t review much but a couple of days ago a friend asked for tips and places to stay around DC and the first thing that came to mind was to tell him to absolutely avoid this place. I stayed last year during memorial weekend with some friends down at the basement. I have never seen a filthier room... More

The hostel is your standard hostel really, cleanliness level was average. It was in a nice neighbourhood, felt safe and secure. We walked down into the main touristy part of DC (National Mall) in around 20 minutes. Only slight issue was parking, it's a small parking lot (only 5 cars at a time) so not best for large SUV's.

hey there, thank you for your comments. All of the doors inside and outside have locks on them - and are always in the locked position. Our parking lot is a bit small, but we're happy to be able to accommodate everyone, especially for such low prices! We have added another cleaning staff to make sure that the hostel is... More

Clean accommodations, nice neighborhood, economic and social. I am well over the age of the usual hostel traveler but I meet a much more interesting class of people at hostels compared to when I travel by myself and stay at a hotel. This hostel was no exception. I enjoyed several meals in the kitchen, chatting with people from all over... More

My friends and me we went in Washington Dc for a weekend and we were hosted in this Hostel. The position is quite good, it is only 20 min by foot from the station and downtown, and 10 minutes by foot from the most well known clubs, pubs and discos of the city. The room is quite confortable, it is... More

The people who work there are very easy going and easy to talk to! Free coffee and breakfast is nice. It's spacious and has nice living room spaces for mangling with over travelers! My room mate was very cool as well!

I was travelling alone so had booked a private room with a shared bathroom. Without me asking, they switched my room so I had an ensuite, which was a really welcome relief since I was only in DC for one night, very tired and looking for a bit of privacy. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The... More
