    This was the perfect place to stay on my first solo trip to DC! It was clean, the rooms were huge, and there were so many extras (including the pool and work spaces) The only complaint was the walk to metro station but you can easily catch a bus or ride a scooter there!

    No complaints at all - had a very nice stay. The atmosphere was quite quiet but it's easy to meet people in DC so that was fine. Room was pretty dark but otherwise very clean/safe etc

    Pros: - Very well located near the Dupont Circle metro station and an easy walk to Adams Morgan. - Beds were comfy with curtains to have some privacy. - Staff were friendly and helpful - AC was working well even on some extremely hot summer days Cons: - Wifi was slow and unusable at times - Cafe, restaurant and pool were all closed (but are supposed to open soon!) - For many, it is a hotel so it wasn't the most social hostel (maybe everything opening will help)

    clean, modern hostel in a great location. if you are coming to mingle/socialize with others, this place isn't the best for that as they don't provide a communal kitchen and the gathering areas are right in the lobby where there are people waiting/drinking coffee.

    Bar, café and pool weren't open, and WiFi was really poor, kept cutting out. However, the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable, and the rooms were well maintained with great blackout curtains to keep it dark.

    Very Good

    This was a weird place. It's a hotel with a few dorm rooms. They have no food or cooking facilities. While I was there, I was the only one staying in the 4 bed dorm for most of the nights so there was no way to meet other travelers while there. Granted, it was very clean and the staff was really nice to me, but certainly didn't have a hostel vibe. I would come back and stay at the hotel, but it's not a hostel, just an inexpensive bed. If you're looking to meet other travelers, stay elsewhere.

    This didn’t really have the feel of a hostel. It seemed like most of the rooms were singles and they just converted a few into dormitories. Not much interaction between guests (influenced by the short hours for the pool and the COVID-related closure of the cafe). Mostly it was nice and affordable for DC. The bedding was very nice. The room only got thoroughly cleaned 1 of the 4 days I stayed. :/
