We stayed at this hostel in a four person shared room. There were two of us and we were there two days during February 2014. The location of this hostel is perfect and within walking distance to all the attractions around town. It may take a bit longer to walk to the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol Building as they are further away than the White House etc, but it will save you money, especially if you're on a tight budget. This hostel has free wifi, however it only works on the first and second levels, this is one of the only issues with this hostel. We were on the 6th floor, and the bathrooms were shared, which is nothing different to any other hostel I have stayed in. However the showers didn't have doors, instead just a curtain. It has free breakfast which is good and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The TV room is good and is sort of a cinema style set up. I would stay here again if I was travelling back to DC.
