    This space should be considered a last resort to all travelers. I stayed here once before, prior to Covid, and it was in rough shape then. I would have expected that a global pandemic would have allowed management time to address the issues, of poor plumbing, the aesthetic of the interior, and above all ensure that the place was respectably clean! (When you find visible hairs on the bed, and sheets that look as id they were just slept on, stains on the covers, it comes as a major surprise)

    this hostel was the most awful I've ever stayed. I reserved 2 beds but he gave me only 1 key card, and even we asked another one since we wanted going our separately, he didn't accept that. and bathroom and washroom is only one for each floor, it's about 20 people for each floor. so I was always waiting for using washroom like 20min. and seems like nobody cleaned it, so it was so dirty. there were more bad things, since it was less that description on this website, I wanna pay back if I could.

    The staff was unattentive, just straight up not doing their job. There was nothing in the kitchen, which smelled of rotten food. The dishwasher was broken. The room was dark, airless, windowless, threadbare little sheets and blankets. No running hot water. Awful.

    I have stayed in many hostels in many different cities around the world, including another hostel in Washington, DC and I must say this current experience at the DC International Hostel was the worse. I will never stay there again, and I hope my fellow world travelers avoid this place. This dingy hole-in-the-wall appears to cater to transients, not travelers. It was filthy, no hot water the first day, dirty sheets on the bed, broken window blinds and the man in charge had an "attitude".

    I don’t usually leave reviews, let alone bad ones... but this has been the worst hostel stay i have ever had, and i have stayed in a lot of hostels. As a fellow budget traveler i probably wouldn’t take my own advice, but do yourself a favor and spend a few extra dollars to avoid ever having to come here. Almost none of the amenities worked, not even some of the sinks. The rooms are warm, stuffy and smelly and the beds CREAK. Most people staying here weren’t backpackers, so the vibes were low

    1. Very filthy toilets, no hot water on the third floor, the flushing system did not work on first floor, one of the sinks on the second floor is broken, no soap, the shower system is so broken. 2. The bedding is very dirty. 3. Many strange people living there (weirdos). 4. A guy slept on the mattress in the lobby. 5. Mouse trap in the lobby. 6. No management whatsoever. The receptionist can hardly speak any English. 7. Window curtains are broken. 8. I will NEVER stay in this hostel again.
