Positive Reviews

Efficient Management and Hospitable Staff

Guests are greeted warmly by the friendly front desk personnel. They are very welcoming and very attentive to everyone’s needs. Moreover, they encourage social gatherings and events to have guests get to know each other. They even prepare tasty pancakes for breakfast!

Excellent Location Near Lots Of Key Places

The hostel’s location is very convenient and highly accessible, according to guests. Centrally located in the neighbourhood, it is just ten minutes from the National Mall by foot and near places of interest like the Smithsonian Museum, Washington Monument, United States Capitol, and the White House.

Rooftop Access and Relaxing Patio

Rooms are immaculate and accessorised by spotless items such as bedding and towels. Lockers are provided for each guest for them to keep their valuables. In addition, guests’ favourite is the rooftop access and the patio where they can hang out with their newly found friends. Hammocks and numerous seating are also available in the said area.

Negative Reviews

Issues with Basement Rooms

Guests speak poorly about the basement rooms. They complain about the dirty surroundings and the unpleasant odour of the room. Sounds of rats in the ceiling also bothered guests who stay in this room. Moreover, Wi-Fi signals are quite weak in this area.

Not Enough Space

Guests have only small space for them to keep their luggage. Due to the number of people who are staying in a room, the area can be very cluttered and congested.

Few Shared Bathrooms

Despite the number of guests accommodated by the hostel, the management failed to provide more bathrooms for them to use. Therefore, the bathrooms’ cleanliness suffers due to frequent use and guests usually line up to take turns in using the facility.
