    Stayed two nights in one of the private rooms and it was great! Had a beautiful view of DC from the top floor, and the room/common areas were clean and comfortable! I found that for parking, despite there being a lot available there was also plenty of parking on surrounding streets which I utilized.

    Great stay! Generator is in the awesome location of DuPont Circle with awesome restaurants, cafes, and shops. It’s also a safe neighborhood and the hostel itself has security roaming throughout the property and someone at the front desk at all times. The hostel is not in the city center, but it’s about a five minute walk to a metro station that is easy to ride and easy to get to all the museums and monuments. Not much of a hostel vibe, more so a hotel that happens to have hostel rooms.

    Great value for a hostel, but I wish they would have had the Bar or Cafe open. It really makes the difference. That said, the rooms, ensuite showers, and facilities are all top notch. Just know that the storage lockers under the bed don't fit anything bigger than a duffel bag because of the way they open. I wish they were open drawers, but they aren't.

    The place is great! The staff are helpful and the lobby is relaxing. My only issue with the bunk beds were the bed lights. If the person next to you turns on their light in the middle of the night, it shines right in your face.

    Very Good

    Stayed in 4-bed dorm. Good location, cafe in the lobby, friendly staff, bikes, new towel everyday. Only issue I saw was cleanliness. There was a old-sock smell in the room(may be from other guests). There was hair in the bath tub before anyone had used it for the day. Would be great if they could put soap dispenser in showers. Overall a decent value for money. I might stay again.

    I had requested an all female dorm. The reception lady assigned me a room, and when I walked in there was a male hanging out. I went back down to reception and notified reception. They did not accommodate me to an all female room. Instead they bargained with me, and we settled with a room that "had two females and one male, but the male is checking out tomorrow." I agreed to this. The next morning I woke up to loud snoring above me. I found out that I was sharing the room with three males.
