Unfortunately I didn't enjoy my time at Hilltop Hostel. The staff were OK and so was the building itself, but there were hardly any other travellers there. It felt more like a half way house for people with nowhere else to go than a travellers hostel. It's a real shame because it's such a nice building I could imagine it being a great hostel if it could attract more backpackers. The neighbourhood it is situated in is also a bit dodgy and didn't feel safe.
Great hostel, probably my favourite so far. The staff are friendly, ask them anything! Location wise you can't complain, Takoma station across the road, 12 mins to central DC and the metro is pretty frequent. Chilled balconys for the evening, close shops for beer, coffee and a 7eleven and a CVS (supermarket) super close by. Many thanks for the stay!
Never stayed at a hostel before. I was expecting bed bugs and noise. But it was super clean and just awesome! Thanks Vic From Arizona
