Good location, close to many restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. Happy hour every day with free beer, much appreciated. Rooms and facilities clean. Staff friendly. Shoefree policy doesn't work that well since you need to walk in the shoefree zone to take your shoes off. Limited seating in the kitchen. A bit too expensive. Would probably stay again.

This hostel has one of the best vibes I've experienced as everyone hangs out together in the common room and is really friendly. That was a great experience. What wasn't great was the rooms. I was in a 5 bed which was WAY too small. They did not need to shove that extra single bed in there. Also the room on level 1 is so noisy. If you get assigned to it ask to be moved, unless you have wax ear plug to block the noise. Also, no lamps or extra power outlets in the rooms were annoying.

This hostel was definitely one of the best ones I've been to so far. Especially for people traveling alone (like me) it is perfect. Every night they did a happy hour with beer and playing cards and afterwards they usually went out to different bars which was perfect for meeting people. The staff is really great! They welcome you and show you around the hostel and explain everything to you and you can really feel that they want you to feel welcome. Choose this hostel, it's great!!

Great for solo travelers and people wanting to make friends and socialize. Really good atmosphere with awesome activities to do. The staff is the best staff I've seen at a hostel in a while. Cons: bathrooms are kind of dingy, there's not much space, and the walls are thin so it's hard to get a lot of sleep.

A mixed review... one of the best hostels I've stayed at in terms of staff and social atmosphere but unfortunately the room was beyond tiny (wouldn't recommend the 6 bed dorm) and there are nowhere near enough bathrooms, especially when 2 are through reception and the kitchen and 1 was out of order.

All the staff was extremely friendly. They offer social events that they lead in the area. It was a great place to stay.

Clean, safe, and located in a cool strip of shops, cafés, etc. The staff at the DC House was great. I stayed at the Philadelphia House when I was in Philly and had a great experience there as well. Because the staff hangs out and gets to know everyone, it feels a lot more safe because someone you now know has their eyes on everything. They are good about catering their sightseeing suggestions to your interests as well.
