    It honestly felt more like a hotel. It was more on the expensive side but I believe it was worth it. There’s plenty of communal space. The rooms are super spacious and the beds have their own curtains for privacy. Staff were super friendly too. I would highly recommend.

    A great hostel if you’re looking for something affordable but a little nicer. Shared room had plenty of privacy with the curtains on the bunk beds. Swanky lobby space to eat and hangout too. Solid location in DC, not too far of a walk from the Mall and a shorter walk to the Metro.

    I took a 4 women shared bed room, with private bathroom. The hostel looks much more like a hotel! There's a Hilton just in front of the Generator, and a lot of ambassy nearby (the area is really safe) + a lot of restaurants, and renting bikes close. The wifi is fast. The room is clean, and has all what is needed.

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in !! Perfect facilities and really nice location. Be careful though how you pay (card sometimes declined). And also you may not want to choose forms because I found myself to be with a very disturbing person, which was not comfortable at all to sleep with. Other than that great hostel !

    Very nice hostel, not cheap but also not expensive. Very clean and the bathrooms within the rooms are nice. Probably not the best for meeting people but depends who you are in a room with :) I had a 4 bed room and it was great with views over the city. Privacy curtains were fab too.

    48 hour booking cancellation policy is a joke. But the hostel is very good overall, except for having only 2 washing machines for the guests to use and one of the driers wasn't working properly, so people had to do up to 3 cycles (and pay accordingly, of course)
