The Good: location very close to the metro(which you will be needing because you do not want to spend to much time in this hostel) manager lady was kind.The Bad: No air conditioning, rooms are musty, house is old, bugs, bathrooms are nasty. The overall atmosphere with the other roommates were poor because everyone was in disbelief of the rugged place they were staying in. Even my traveling companion was starting to get depressed. Please please, it may have a good price, but STAY AWAY!


Everything was clean, it was just worn or dated. Make sure you know that this place is CASH ONLY.

its very near Metro Station which is very convenient for travel in DC.


Ask for the hours when the kitchen is gonna be closed for cleaning. If you don't follow them and just walk through (exit is through kitchen) you get yelled at! Very poor customer service! Don't stay here!

I am so sorry this happened to you Could you please describe the person who yelled at you or do you know their nane ? Lori Manager


Place was not very clean. It smelled strange, a bit humid. A bag was stolen. The location is not excellent and staff was slow at checkin.
