    Polite, efficient staff and excellent location near the Woodley/Adams Morgan Metro Red Line Station. My private room was comfortable, clean, economical, and next to the bathroom. I would suggest that either some hooks or a coat tree be added to hang outerwear and towel. I shall stay at this hostel next time I visit Washington DC, either for a convention (this visit) or for vacation).

    I stayed at Washington International Student Center in DC. It was enjoyable. I was told, however, that there was free parking and was told to park in the garage adjacent to the hostel, but the manager was nowhere to be found. And the clerk at the desk did not know how to reimburse the parking. In fact, he tried contacting the manager to no avail. This went on for three days.

    This hostel is on 18th Street which has some of the best night life in Washington DC. There are at least 6 live music venues on the same block as the hostel and just about everything you need is in walking distance including a grocery store just a few blocks away. Its about an $6 Uber ride to the main tourist areas downtown. Staff was fun, laid back and very helpful. I stayed in several different hostels in Washington DC and I like this one the best because the private rooms are priced right.

    Hello. The location was fabulously amazing, but the place is not cleaned well at all. I had to remind the staff to clean the bathroom. Thanks!
