Great hostel in a great location. Did the free walking tour around DC which was great, and also went to the free introductory dinner which was a good way to meet people. Only issue was a lady in our room was about 60 years of age, and appeared to not have showered, left her luggage all over the room, and really made our stay unpleasant. We did not want to return to our room because of the odour. Luckily the staff offered to move us, once we mentioned this. Would highly recommend this hostel!

Unfortunately I had an uncomfortable experience. Cold showers and (very) strange hostel roomies. The heater in the room had a mind of its own; I woke up to the room feeling way too hot and the heater dial wasn't too responsive, so it took way too long to change and cool down. I had to leave the room in the middle of the night to get some air. The place also didn't feel too clean and was a little smelly. And there were a mixed bag of creepy guests. I didn't enjoy my time there. Also quite pricey.

It was really nice staying with HI in DC. I went to some of the tours and I enjoyed it. It's a great offer for guests!

Nice hostel. The layout is really good so that 10 bed dorm feels like 4 bed dorm. Breakfast is fine. But the elevator is really really slow. If you stay in the top floor, you'll wait forever to get up or down. And the heating facility in the room is so loud. I wole up many times in the night when it started to work. But overall this is a very satisfying one.

Even though I'm staying in a 10 female dorm, space is enough and I feel comfortable staying in the hostel. The location is good and it is a walking distance to the white house and some other spots. I would recommend this hostel.

We had a great stay here, and the staff were really helpful! The kitchen facilities are amazing, everything you need to make a good meal is available. The rooms are clean, comfy beds and large lockers! The rooms are quite narrow however. Unfortunately the female showers weren't working on our level so we had to go to another level to shower, bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner. Great vibe, great people and it was quiet between the quiet hours!

The wifi was a little slow and the bathrooms very cold. Plus the heater/air conditioning system in the room was pretty loud. Otherwise, everything was great. The breakfast was really good and the staff very friendly.

I stayed in room 402. The AC was sooooo loud and made almost screaming noises every time it shut off and kicked on. I was up all night long.

Staff were great. Good atmosphere with everyone. Organised events and pool table to help people mingle with other travellers. Breakfast can get quite busy so make sure you don't miss out.

This hostel was so stuffy! We were sweating before we even left the building. Lift is slow. Included breakfast was pretty standard. Kitchen looked really good (although we didn't use it) Lockers are a good size for all your valuables, and it's in walking/metro distance to all the main sites. Lounge area also looked pretty great.

I believe the beds might be Tempur-pedic. Even if not they are super comfortable and the best I've been on in a hostel. It is a nice sized hostel and breakfast will fill you up! No drinking is allowed in the hostel, they do daily tours, and if you finish with you plates by 0930 a.m., they will do your dishes for you! Oh.. And ladies room 402 has an air conditioner or heater that makes a a loud pop sound when it turns off. But overall the place is very nice.

The pool table needs a refurbishment. It is old for people to play on properly.
