    I was shocked that this place, so close to the heartbeat of the nation, is so reasonable. Nothing fancy, but you don’t go to DC to watch tv or microwave a frozen meal. The guests are all very friendly to old farts like myself. I took a private room, which was perfect, but am sure a family could probably use the dorm rooms with four or five beds

    The capsules were really cool but really loud to move around in. The airflow was very minimal so it got hot really quick. I wish they would’ve given us a play by play on how the buttons worked inside.

    Conveniently located right off the Metro station in an area with plenty of restaurants and shops. Clean facility with detached bathrooms. Only thing that would make the hostel better would be to having charging stations in each of the sleeping pods. Thank you for letting me check in early!

    Great location! One block from a grocery store (Trader Joe's) and right by the DC Metro station. Good part of town; felt safe walking to the grocery and around the hostel alone after dark. The "capsule" experience was great too. It really does feel like you have your own space and the lighting in the capsules is bright enough to read or even put on makeup. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good showers. One major downside: No way to lock up your belongings! Otherwise great experience.

    It’s a good place very clean and organized. My only issues it’s because they don’t return the many in case you canceled, 24H before.

    I enjoy my stay for it being the first time, I’ve stay at any Hostel. Pretty cool location, comes to life in the evening shops, bars, Restaurants. I went on a 48 hr roadtrip and to sleep in a capsule was interesting say the less. Could’ve been a bit more comfortable but to speed like Star Wars was great. Just wish I stay in and all female room/ sharing with men well can I say a bit (musty). Over all it was cool. Suggest I got private next one,

    1. WRITE DOWN the DOOR PASSWORDS!!!!!!!!! The front door and room doors all have passwords, not keys. The front desk is only manned at certain times of day, so there'll be nobody to let you in without the password. Write it down somewhere, or put it in your phone. 2. There are no lockers. Nothing is secure. Keep your phone/wallet/ID/tickets on you at all times. 3. The capsules don't have doors! Your only privacy is a flimsy curtain. You can't lock up your stuff in there.

    The a/c was broken all weekend so…yeah facilities get a zero. We got the front room on the street side, and DC police seem to no longer do any work at all because the sound of motorcyclists revving their engines at deafening volume didn’t stop until 4am. Maybe the back rooms are quieter? There’s good food in the neighborhood, but coffee was a bit of a hike.
