    Very Good

    HI Washington is a hostel without the bells and whistles. If you’re just wanting a cheap place to rest your head, then this is fine. Note that high school kids were there and they didn’t quite get the concept of being respectful and quiet at odd hours. Free breakfast was great though! Filled the belly and saved a good amount of money.
