    This is one of the best Hostels I've stayed in. Very clean, nice accommodations, big lockers, private bunks, clean bathrooms, free toiletries, card access to rooms/front entrance, good areas to socialize, and so on. The location is a bit north of the monuments but it's close enough to bike which was fine for me. The bar and restaurant scene right next to the hostel is also great.

    Great find in DC, Adams Morgan is an interesting area with the centre of DC a bus ride away. The "Happy Hour" on Thursday was a fun way to meet other visitors.

    I stayed here for a solo birthday trip to visit the city for the first time. The staff were very helpful while checking in, gave great advice on the best ways to get around, and created a very welcoming environment. Some of the things that really sold me on this hostel were its location, privacy options in shared rooms, clean facilities, safety precautions, and community space.

    A really really cool hostel in a sweet area of D.C. Facilities are amazing. It was a bit empty during the week, I assume because people cancelled due to coronavirus, but that is to be expected. I still had an awesome time with the guests that stayed. Staff & cleaners went around frequently spraying surfaces and making sure everything was clean. A St Patrick's holiday I'll not forget 🍀💚🍻

    Had a couple of nights spare after a work trip. Hostel was easy to find an din a good location for food and nightlife. Hostel was kept clean, staff were friendly and the beds were comfortable. Rooms were very basic but that is all you need in a hostel, plus you had 2 large lockers so no worry about fitting baggage in. Enjoyed my stay, would stay again.

    Overall a nice hostel - big cosy common area, great kitchen and excellent location in AdMo with good access to local buses. Unfortunately they were not doing the breakfast each morning and the room I was in could have been cleaner for the price. Would stay again though if I was back in DC.
