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.

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.


I loved the location of the hostel and its proximity to all the major monuments and attractions. The hostel provided a walking tour of the capital building and the surrounding area. I really enjoyed that.

Everything you could want in a hostel. Clean, secure, excellent location. Staff were friendly and organised a free halloween meal which was an excellent ice breaker. All dc main sights / shops / bars are within walking distance. Staff weren't esp knowledgeable with local attactions when we asked but this is a very minor gripe.
