Hostel was nice and staff were friendly, unfortunately the floodlights hit the windows of the room I was staying in and made the room seem as if it was the middle of the day all night with the curtains closed. Also there is no signage by the door to find the entrance which can make it hard to find it. Otherwise amazing location walking distance from everything and lovely helpful staff

House of Journey is centrally located in Georgetown on the second floor of a historic building. The entry way is secure but very tight. There is a small common area inside and outside for dining. The desk was mostly run by volunteer tourists. The owners, however, were more friendly and knowledgeable when they were there. The rooms and bathrooms aren’t much but they do the job. The lockers are pretty small but large enough for a daypack. The breakfast is only toast and jelly.
