Positive Reviews

Well-positioned Hostel in Washington

The location of this hostel is only five minutes from the metro stop by foot, thus, guests find the spot absolutely convenient. In addition, it is in downtown Washington, therefore, the places of interest are just nearby such as supermarkets, restaurants, clubs, and bars.

Handy Lockers and Fully-furnished Kitchen

Basic room essentials are provided for each guest such as lockers for important personal belongings and access to the kitchen. Guests praised the kitchen for being large and convenient enough for them to cook their meals.

Helpful and Accommodating Staff

The staff members are very kind and understanding. They are willing to respond to the any requests, especially when guests need new sets of essentials.

Negative Reviews

Small, Shared Dormitories

The rooms of this hostel house multiple people. Therefore, there is limited space for luggage and other in-room activities. Guests also complained about the congested shower rooms, as en suite bathrooms are not available in all rooms.

Uncomfortable Beds

Guests speak poorly about the beds provided, and suggested the management to have an upgrade. The mattresses are uncomfortable and the bedding are unclean. There are also cases when the beds broke. In addition, the beds and springy, and they create noise when moving.

Noisy Surroundings Due To Poor Soundproofing

Thin walls of the rooms do not block noise from adjacent units. Since the rooms accommodate more than one guest, they can hear others’ noises when sleeping. The hostel is also not free from outside noise due to busy streets and nearby clubs.
