I’ll start of by saying this was one of the more “homey” hostels I’ve been to, the kitchen is great, there’s two really good bus stations 2 minutes away and the staff are very nice. There were two main problems: First, when I first came in to the room I noticed the floor wasn’t clean and thought to myself well they’ll probably clean it tmrw. They didn’t, for the entire length of my stay. I couldn’t say anything because two workers were my roommates (out of a 3 bed room). This is also more of an home for these two and room felt like it. Second, is the bathrooms- there were no hooks to hang clothes or even a bag and my clean clothes fell into the toilet once, and a even more serious one is that the shower floor was extremely slippery and I really had to be careful so I won’t fall. Despite all of the above I do recommend this hostel, just hopeful they will do some thinking.

Plusses: Great location in period residential neighbourhood, around the corner from bumping street of clubs and eateries, many with streetside patios. Attractive common area with large kitchen for the use of guests. Comfortable bed. Friendly helpful staff. Minuses: My mattress (bottom bunk in a three person room) was right on the floor, which meant crawling in from the foot of the bed. Not a lot of bathrooms for common use. Lots of noise from restaurants and clubs into the wee hours. Nearest Metro stations 10-15 minutes away, although there are many nearby bus stops. Hostel accommodation obviously not to everyone’s taste, but I find it an excellent choice for the solo traveller. This one was a great find.

I never stayed in a hostel, I always wanted to, especially when I don't have enough budget but I worry about my safety. I stayed in high road hostel in an only female dormitory room sharing the room with 5 other women. The beds are very comfortable, and clean, everyone is respectful of sleep time and the staff is the nicest ever! I am a Muslim and the room was kinda tight but there was a lot of space in the kitchen and few people are there so I usually pray in the Kitchen and I felt so blessed and peaceful. the location is great! I loved everything about the hostel, there is literally nothing i d ask to change. There is a kitchen and fridges so I didn't have to spend money on food out. However, I d say bring ur own shampoo and soap, the ones they give felt very cheap and low quality, I didn't dare to use it.

Best Hostel I've stayed in the continental United States. Definitely will be staying here again on my next trip to DC. If I had to nitpick anything, it's that the pillows were super flat and uncomfortable.

I like to stay in hostels when I travel alone; the low-key atmosphere and chance to cook something simple instead of going out are perks for me. I also like the chance to be around young people who are typically interesting and well -traveled. I considered a shared bunk room and decided against it; that is more than I want at this point! Clear rules about quiet hours were posted and I heard no noise from my third floor room. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the single room and the price was reasonable for DC in March. The front desk staff was responsive and poised. The kitchen was immaculately clean.

Really sweet hostel, friendly and helpful staff, lively little neighborhood with lots of great restaurants and bars. Clean rooms, classy bathrooms, good communal areas. The hostel should get with the times on the environment though - doing away with single use dishes for breakfast, having eco-friendly soap dispensers in the showers instead of single use plastic toiletries and having some organic coffee, milk and breakfast goodies would be a real plus. I'm sure you can do it. Keep up the good work

Stayed here to start my yoga training at a nearby studio. I only stayed at one hostel previously and was nervous based on that experience more than 10 years ago. I would have loved to have stayed at a hotel with my own room but budget was crucial. Pleasantly surprised that this experience went well. Everyone is either social or to themselves, so there is a balance for whatever you prefer. Kitchen had all you'd need to cook... although I didn't have to for a short stay. Bed was semi-comfortable but I didn't expect it to be like my bed at home. They have extra pillows and blankets if you'd like. I request an extra pillow, and they have free toiletries. I was nervous about my personal belongings but locked up my valuables in the cubby/locker. Everyone in my room were pleasant. I selected the 6-bed room with bathroom inside. nice that there are other bathrooms to use should the one in the room be occupied too long. Check-in and out was easy. Friendly front desk staff! Stored my luggage to pickup after evening class before departing the city. Booked out for the duration of my yoga training. Facilities were clean. Would recommend.

Eazy to find, friendly stuff, clean. Lots of bars on the nearby street. Don't know about other days, during my stay for breakfast was offered various types of cereal, milk, juice, coffee. The beds were comfortable. As 6'6 person l fit relatively good. Although I prefer to have no footboard

This remains one of the best Hostels I have ever stayed at. The people there are so friendly, interesting, and engaged. People give each other tips around town and help each other out. They offer breakfast and dinner with coffee. It is a wonderful community. It is safe and friendly and in the heart of DC. You can go there and make some life long friends from all over the world. Indeed it is one of the last few hostels left with a true sense of community and that is incredibly rare these days.
