Stayed 2 nights, really friendly and helpful staff. Pancakes and coffee just awesome. Bathrooms are great and clean. Only one downside, 12man dorms can be a nightmare, especially when 1 person comes in drunk at 2am and 4am and wakes everyone up. Thick skin needed. All-in-all a great place to stay, worth every dollar.

location is very good. As for the condition, the bathrooms are very clean. They have no shoes policy for inside which helps with the floor but it could be better. Sunday barbecue offers really nice food.

Just as it is with hotels, hostels have many different options. If you're not used to it or just somehow afraid of staying in a hostel or anything, this is a great place to start. It is clean, well organized, has a good location... Pretty much everything you could expect from a hostel. Just think about a regular hostel with some good upgrades. The problem? Well, hostels are supposed to be very low-cost options and this one is not that much cheap.

I stayed for 1 night. I really enjoyed my stay. Receptionists were nice, beds were large, and bathrooms were clean. They also provided free pancakes as breakfast. It was in walking distance of a subway station, so transportation was convenient.

This place has very nice rooms, with big lockers, easy to sleep no noise and clean.
It has a very good location walking distance to the national mall.
But the place is boring, there is no platform for socializing with new people there, so it barely happens.
The place is run in a very 'strict' manner taking the fun out of it. No activites planned, the building itself is built in a manner which is hard to move around.
The owner is a hypocrite who does not allow for shoes beyond the front door, but comes with shoes on himself, and worse yet with his dirty dog that drools all over the place. (The bathrooms and rooms are very clean nonetheless. The shoe policy is stupid though)

Bottom line: Need a good clean place, in a good location for a reasonable price ? Found your place.
Want a place for a bit more than that - such as fun, socializing and good 'vibe' ? Search someplace else.
