    I had a great stay at HI Washington. Best hostel I've ever stayed at. The location and price were amazing. The staff were upbeat and the hostel interior cheerful and clean. Some nice amenities I noticed that I haven't seen at other hostels: chocolate-chip cookie at check-in, an elevator, separate power sockets for each bed, two in one shampoo and soap in showers, blow dryer in bathroom, hot and cold food at breakfast. Plus the usual amenities found in hostels. I'd love to go back sometime.

    First of all, one of the best hostel breakfasts, if not the best, I've ever had. So much variety. Excellent location near Mr. Trump's residence. Some of the staff was visibly bored and kinda rude, but one guy at reception was absolutely hilarious. Always love it when hostels use keycards instead of clumsy keys.

    Decent place to stay. National mall is within walking distance and close proximity to train stations and bus stops. Cortez is a stand up guy as well.

    We stayed in a private room, for the amount of money we paid we expected it to be a lot nicer. The shared bathrooms are horrible. I would expect something like that in a poorer country but not in America. The air con in the room was so noisy, we needed it on but struggled to sleep. The hostel needs bringing into this century. Expensive for what it actually is.

    Must you charge for absolutely everything from lockers to slippers to internet access? With that at stake, I would have stayed in a hotel if I could've afforded it. You are charging extra for everything because of location in downtown central DC. Decent hostel, but humid and muggy inside and the dorm room smelled like BO and made it hard for me to sleep.

    This establishment allows homeless people to stay there. The smell was awful. When I informed the staff I was told immediately that he told them that he took a shower this time. Implying that they knew who this man was without description of him. To make it worst this gentleman expose him self in our room and urinated into a plastic bottle. I was later switched into another room but the memory of that event will take some time to process.
