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.

Great location - within walking distance to most museums and monuments etc. Beds comfortable enough, and clean. Hot water was variable but not stone cold.Free breakfast was pretty good considering.. toast, cereal, yoghurt, bagels, orange juice and coffee.. Temporarily lost my phone while there and girl on front desk was of absolutely no help at all when I inquired about whereabouts but rest of the staff I dealt with were more than helpful throughout rest of the stay.

I found the staff to be completely un interested in helping a single traveler. No help and seemed like they disliked their jobs and life...

Most of the assistants are good. But one woman is really arrogant! She shows discrimination! Even if she is black n

I received a warm welcome at the arrival, and a huge plan with all the activities for the weekend and during the week. They offered a lot of free things to do, and had some bananas or snacks to go. I stayed in a 10 bed room dorm, but the room was divided through walls into 3 or 4 separate corners. It sure is one of the best hostels (y)

Not the best HI hostel I've stayed at in America, but very good. Good location (although a lot of street noise at night), staff on the whole are great, breakfast sets you up for the day. More could be done to give hostellers some privacy and I think some specific bar crawl events would help to give a more social atmosphere, but, on the whole, a good hostel manned by good staff.
