The neighborhood isn't very safe and you gotta be careful when walking around there and there's one bathroom with a faulty faucet, but other than these things, it's a great cost-benefit place if you want to visit DC. I didn't meet Bill, the owner, but everyone told he's a great guy.

Thank you for being a good guest. However, your grade of this hostel doesn't reflect your statement, "Great cost-benefit place.." Be more kind when you have the best beds and internet speeds and quality of guest (we only accept college aged or passport carrying travelers) otherwise your misleading review will deter travelers from this best hostel. BTW, there are two bathrooms for 4 rooms....not one. and this neighborhood is no worse than any another DC neighborhood that you can book for $28


nice people
