Hostel was in older building but it was in the middle of all the action of many clubs. Would come back again but in warmer times.

The hostel is in the middle of the Adams Morgan area of Washington DC so this makes it easy to get around and Adams Morgan is awesome to party in. Hostel was cool and had a good vibe to it.

Great place to stay. Helpful with information. Easy to get to places around Washington DC. Right in the middle of many good clubs and places to eat.

The hostel was good value for money and facilities were good. But it was noisy at night and the rooms weren't very a bit messy and cramped, mostly because I shared a dorm with a number of long term residents who had a lot of stuff! Good location in Adams Morgan, which is a bit far from the city's main attractions but a cool neighbourhood to hang out in.

It is a decent place to stay, it is safe, the bathroom was clean and that is an extra, they should update some of the things like their blankets. We were able to leave our stuff there after check out time and that is great! Somebody should clean the kitchen thororugly. The staff is rude sometines, exept for the girl that speaks Spanish and the boy, they were very nice!

Even though the stuff was really friendly an nice, this hostel is definitely not the money worth. Since my standards aren't that high I were able to stay one night there, but I would definitely not chose that hostel again. Our window didn't shut, the floor wasn't cleaned, the bathroom was full of hair, dust and dirt and the kitchen was so messy. People who can't handle dirt shouldn't go there. It's just way to expensive for what you get at the end.

The hostel is quite dirty; obvious cleaners do a minimal job to ensure place looks tidy. No hand soap in any of the bathrooms...which is disgusting. Staff are mediocre and found a couple of then to e rude...the owner isn't friendly. I rather spend money to stay somewhere clean with friendly staff. I've stayed at Duo and the prices are very similar; however duo is clean and the staff are great. After this experience I won't be staying at Washington student international center.

This hostel has a very friendly and courteous stuff, a cozy living room and it is located in an artsy area with lots of different restaurants around. The price is a bargain! I highly recommend this place to travelers who want to get to know interesting people and the world out there.
