    Superb

    Very nice hostel with excellent staff. Everything was super clean and the location is perfect. It is only 10 min from Union Station and the National Mall. The staff was super friendly and helpful, only con was that our door lock was out of battery and not working but staff immediately tried to fix it. :) definitely give it a try.

    Loved this hostel! The rooms were clean and beds were comfy, staff were lovely and helpful and they really did a lot to make my stay great! Not too far of a walk into the center but there’s also busses to all attractions for only $2! Loads of lovely cafes and restaurants near by too! Highly recommend!

    Clean beds and towels, functional kitchen space, and the staff for the most part was mad chill. The main downsides are the beds are small if you're a taller person, and the stairs are super creaky so be careful late at night not to wake other inhabitants.

    The staff provided a very warm welcome at the hostel, some of the facilities were not working when we first arrived at the hostel however they were fixed by staff on the most part and therefore made available for guests to use. I felt very safe in the building and the room was cool and comfortable! Also it was only a 15 minute walk to the centre and places such as Union Station and the Capitol! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is travelling the area

    I was not too sure about parking on the street. The young man didn’t give me any information of where si could park. They do not offer parking. That was a big inconvenience. Everything was clean. I liked that the bathroom was really clean.

    Overall we had an alright stay. Had a problem with one of the staff members being rude and abrasive towards us telling us we had to have left already when we proved to him multiple times that we had paid for an extra night. And then telling us he didn’t want to help us with our laundry (you have to ask them to help) and to wait for the next person to come on shift to deal with it. He checked us in as well and just came across as if he didn’t want to be there and that we were a hassle.

    The location was great, the security was good, and the staff was fine. However, many things were broken (showers, towel racks, etc) and I discovered bed bugs on my bed.

    Booked hostel as we needed one with parking and it was listed as a facility. I rang ahead after booking, was told that there was none. Asked for parking tips, the staff member said ‘I don’t know I don’t have a car.’ Found parking - $60. Thought we had the whole room booked, were told our room had a staff member staying there. No lockers for valuables. Dirty sheets. 3 random guys walked into our room taking photos for an event Bugs crawling out the walls. Free pancakes Nice terrace Good location

    I found bed bags on my and on my neighbor’s beds. Also, the the guy in the front was not letting me in for 1.5 hours. I admit that I came later than 10 PM (that’s when they close). But anyway I think it should be more lenient towards its customers!
