Great free tours and awesome breakfast.

We were greeted by enthusiastic front desk staff who quickly assigned our room/beds. There was remodeling on the main floor for the first few days of our stay, so we couldn't use some of the facilities. The elevator was very SLOW! The beds (and pillows) were uncomfortable-I have stayed here before on lower floors and don't recall such a hard bed! However, overall we had a good stay and would recommend this hostel for its friendly and helpful staff, location, and value.

Not the worst hostel I've stayed in. It was a mostly decent experience. The shower room & toilets weren't the best. There were only 2 toilets per floor & only 3 showers per floor. Also the lift was at best slow, & at worst not functioning at all. This was annoying when staying on the 7th floor.

The hostel is great and within walking distance of the monuments (capitol, art gallery, white house, etc.) as well as chinatown. There is a kitchen which can be used for free, next to a big room with tables and even a pool table; so a great place to hang out with other travelers. There are also free (apart from maybe travel fares) tours every evening, perfect to meet people. Breakfast is nice, rooms and facilities are clean. Only downside: the internet is terrible (but free)

Good location; free activities; beds are a bit squeaky; don't get the bed nr 1 - it is right next to the door so when the door opens it will swing past just behind your head. I'd recommend using the capitol bike share to get around - they have a station right next to the hostel which is awesome.

I really liked this hostel, the only thing is that internet was very very slow. The night tours are really good and the staff is super friendly.

Convenient location. Rooms are too small to fit in 6 people. Heaters are old and makes lot of noises and it woke me up multiple times at night.

This place was ok. There was painting going on in the hallways so it smelled like paint the whole time. They had a no alcohol policy but it seemed like it would be easy to get away with drinking in the rooms. There was no community feel.

The hostel was very clean, secure and centrally located. The breakfast was good, it consisted of cereal and toast/bagels. The atmosphere was a bit more reserved, it was harder to meet people compared to other hostels I have stayed in.
