    I don't know where to start... My stay at U street was AMAZING qq. I have stayed at 2 other properties and they don't come close to U street! From the time i walked in it was welcoming, clean and the people were awesome. Check in and check out was smooth. It was so peaceful and quite. I will definitely return just because the service was amazing. The facility is huge. They have washers and dryers shower rooms, multiple bathrooms and the staff doesn't bother you for anything.

    I had a short stay here and it was super convenient cause the metro is literally around the corner! Overall the place is really clean. Showers and restrooms were spotless!!! It was my first time staying at a hostel so it was totally new to me. If you stay here make sure to check your email for the main door and room codes. That was my mistake so I kinda waited a bit initially and they don’t always have someone at the desk since their office hours are only at certain times. I had a great stay!

    The stay was great, the breakfast is good and the staff is real nice! The only bad thing is that there are no lockers... The hotel is a bit expensive but very original! Overall very enjoyable!

    The location is fantastic. Being downtown and a Metro around the corner to get you anywhere, I couldn't imagine staying at another hotel. You can tell that the hotel is a start-up and still is going through growing pains. The only issue I had was the sleeping quarters have a strong chemical smell and were lacking cleanliness. If you can deal with those two issues, it's a really good hotel. You'll also get a once in a lifetime chance to meet people from all walks of life.

    There were some crazy and creepy old dudes the looked like the were on speed, one gave us a 40 minute lecture when we arrived in the room about how he has pull and can get anyone outta there. It Made the stay and vibes go downhill fast. If it weren't for the other guests we would have stayed another night. Otherwise great staff and service!

    Great location. Watch out showing up in between 1pm and 6pm because there will be no one there to check you in due to their poorly timed “office hours”. There’s no communication about this, though there was a supposed email sent with codes which was never actually received. When the person finally got there he was quick to blame me for not putting my phone number on the reservation. I would definitely urge them to modify their office hours to a time when people actually arrive.

    ABSOLUTELY the WORST hostel experience I've ever had. I was told I'd have to move my personal belongings to another room. When I returned the next day my key didn't scan and a guest who was mentally unstable refused to let me in to move my belongings to another room. The employee wasn't EVEN WORKING during business hours, but when he did show up, he refused to reserve a room and threatened me to leave, although I was missing items from the belongings he had moved. This place is UNSAFE.
