Really nice place! Friendly staff and clean hotel!


The hostel is great.


I spent 2nights at this hostel,i booked a female dorm and on the last night we just got a guy roommate,he was snoring so loud i bearly slept that night.The staff was good,but it wasn't the cleaniest hostel.


We arrived after 10pm but were unable to gain access to the hostel because the email containing our door code was only sent on the morning of our arrival date. Being visitors from overseas our phones can't pick up emails unless we are connected to WiFi, so we were stranded outside for close to an hour before somebody on the roof terrace heard us shouting for help! Once we were let in, the chap who checked us in was really friendly and helpful.


On arrival we got a nice welcome from the staff, but having to take your shoes off was quite weird.in the room we were staying in, we could barely connect to the WiFi.the bathroom was REALLY small and not that clean. We even saw a rat running down the hallway.the rooftop patio is actually quite nice, but it was really noisy for the rooms next to it.normally you wouldn't be able to stay on the patio after 00:00 but apparently that doesn't matter when the staff are the ones making all the noise..

Fantastic hostel, located within walking distance of all the sights in DC. Definitely check out the bar/restaurant on 4th and i, just over the road, which has a late happy hour after 10pm. Busboys and Poets was also a great place to grab a bite. Roof terrace of this hostel is ideal for a few late night beers!


We booked a private room with en suite which turned out to be awesome. We stayed at a site separate from the hostel which was a fully furnished luxury apartment. That was a pleasant surprise. I wish we had stayed longer. We hope we will back sooner rather than later.


Great staff there. Keep up the good work!


The staff were friendly and helpful at all times, even jointing us for a drink once they were off duty on the wonderful roof terrace. The atmosphere was chilled and they even helped make the free pancakes on the morning when we were too tired! They also let me charge my phone while I went out, stored the luggage securely and gave great night out recommendations.
