10/10 Exceptional

Great place that is within walking distance of the Capitol Mall and many restaurants and shops. There is a small grocery market next door but don't expect great prices. Mixed rooms. Everyone I met there was cool. People from all over the world. Restrooms are clean. They have an iron and ironing board. No laundry. Pancake breakfast in the morning starting at 8:30 AM. Internet and phone service inside the building are not great. That being said, you probably don't need internet with so many activities and spots to see in DC. If you need wi-fi, I recommend you find a coffee shop or library to work out of. Staff may or may not take you out partying starting on Thursday night. Great time with, with great people. Totally would come back to the hostel.

Great stay exceeded all expectations!
Great stay, exceeded all expectations. Even the coffee with complimentary pancake breakfast was top notch. As an American, this hostel was a great place to learn about building a health clinic in Fiji or about sea grass in Scotland or how to cook a delicious octopus dinner or how to go 6 weeks in America before getting your first paycheck, or perhaps most importantly, how to remain loyal to one's own socks through thick or thin (literally). Friendly staff, friendly hostel guests, fantastic rooftop hangout. I highly recommend!

It was very affordable compared to hotels nearby. The breakfast could use a little more variety, all I got was pancakes but even so it was nice to have free breakfast. It does get very noisy both outdoors and indoors at night, but the other guests were really nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend if you need something affordable and a place to just sleep. If you need privacy and a place to relax, you won’t get it as you do share the rooms with other people.
