    This hostel is on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a building in the heart of Adams Morgan. I had the private room, so cannot comment on the multiple bed spaces. The thing that stands out most to me is the effort of (owner) to assist me in finding parking. He contacted me after I booked and when he learned I was driving to DC, he arranged for me to have a parking permit through the local police station. Parking in a parking building would have cost me as much or more as my hostel room each night!

    This hostel has an amazing location and the price is very good for what it offers and for the US standards of course. I felt safe and welcomed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing is that it is a very old building with old furniture so no matter how much you clean, it can never seem 100% clean. The bathrooms were very clean though, I must say. Overall, I enjoyed my experience there.

    Good value for money in a lively and safe neighborhood. Owner provides free ride to hostel, and even compensated me for the cost of my taxi when he was out of town the weekend I arrived.

    Great location. However, it's not a hostel. People staying there were mainly long term stays that don't have money to get a proper place. The averagebage is high with drunk people at night being loud. Not great for a nights rest. The bathroom had insects. Staff was friendly and helpfull and price is low. But for a good nights rest, overall cleanliness and hostel experience would not recommend.

    First that this is not a hostel. It's a housing where people actually live there. Very dirty and poorly organized. I was waiting to go shower and passed a mouse by my side. The place stinks of liquor. Money wasted, the people who reviewed this hostel probably have no notion of basic sanitation. For health and hygiene reasons this place should be removed from the Hostel app. The staffs are nice tho but the place is definitely not a hostel. I would like my money back

    Room was crowded not only with people, but what seemed like long term boarders and all their boxes/bags/clothes strewn about. Room smelled like sweat and body odor. Noise from street. The building is in disrepair. Basic trash/health type measures (emptying trash cans, cleaning up loose items around room, etc) were disregarded. This is one of the worst hostels. I can't believe it's up to code.
