In general the hostel is good but the mattress are in bad state including ventilation. The people are friendly.

This was my second stay at this Hostel and both times I had pleasant interactions and a favorable impression. Strongest positives -- good, helpful staff, convenient location (right by metro, public library, convenience store; very close to supermarket, restaurants, park, club(s); close to Chinatown and not too far to bus/train depot -- Union Station). Biggest negative (not a big deal) -- multiple buildings locations that were not together and sub-par common areas (in the 2 of 3 bldgs I stayed).

I travel a lot and I stayed in a lot of low-budget places and because I only stayed two nights in Washington and spent most time outside of the hostel it was okay. But it is really not a clean or safe place. And the thing is it wouldn't take a lot to improve it. The WIFI is not working in the second building. The sink in the kitchen is broken. The lock of the door was broken and obvious that someone broke it to break into the room. The bedsheets had stains on it.

The door lock was not working. Three of the four light bulbs in the room were burnt out, making the room dimly lit. Going up and down the long stairs with the luggage was a pain in the neck. The atmosphere was home-like.

I had a bad experience in this hostel, staying on a Saturday nigth. The noise (music) from the club just NEXT to my bedroom was a nightmare, it made impossible to sleep until 2am or so. The bed mattress didn't help relaxing my nerves, too thin. Same with the pillow. Or the bedroom itself, so small and claustrophobic, with no windows or fresh air. Needless to say I didn´t have a good rest that night. The staff is great, though. And the rooms have key cards, which is secure.

Because the bathroom is mixed, maybe they should at least change the shower curtain to a solid door. It's so easy to see through the curtain.

Is the most nasty, unclean, expensive hostel I have ever been. It was $50 per night, for a shared super-small room where the only space available was for two bunk beds (i.e., with 3 other guys). The bathroom was the worst (also shares male&female), where entering to my shower I found a pad with blood on the shower's floor.

We didn't get what we booked. Rooms were really small for 4 people and the next door there was a club that played music very loud till very late night. Glass doors are great in the unisex shower - not. Service was OK but the staff were not really ready to make their best when the situation was hard. Place where profit comes first and then the customers.

Even if the staff was nice the Hostel is very old an not convenient at all. In the building I was there was only one bathroom (with one restroom inside) for about 4 rooms of 6 peopeople! So you had to wait a long time on the morning to shoer. There wasn't any windows in the room. I won't recomand it.

NO LOCKERS!!! Very not cool. The 'annex' building for the hostel had four rooms with three or four double bunkbeds in each; all of those sharing a single toilet and shower (both in the same room; so someone showering would tie up the toilet as well for likely 20+ mins). Annex also has no wifi coverage; it is located down the block from the 'main' hostel area and apparently does not have its own internet or a booster wireless router patched in.

It is so unreasonable and non-sense for 16 people sharing 1 bathroom. I waited for so long to take a bath. Also, the room was unclean and ventilation was so bad. However, the staff was very nice and willing to help. The price was low too. It was just the facilities suck.

The stuff in the hostel didn't know anything about the city or what to visit... And it's the capital! It was my first time in Washington but I knew more than the stuff... They told us there would be coffee the hole day but it was always empty and they didn't had stuff to make it. We had one shower together with one toilet for 20 people. In the kitchen were no plates or silverware. The sink was broken. It was cheap but kinda far from the national mall and we didn't feel that comfortable. Sadly

Walking distance from the mall, close to a supermarket and restaurants. Rooms and bathrooms are good, kitchen is ok, lack of equipment tho. Staff was very helpful, may not be really professionals but they are trying their best to satisfy. However atmosphere was poor, there's no such thing as common area. If you're looking for a place to just sleep for 2 nights this is the one! Not to expensive either!

I arrived at the hostel at 3h30am and the door was locked. I tried to call someone in the door and I also called their telephone number, but I didn't get any answer. Really disappointing. I had to look for another hostel at the middle of the night.
