Great place
The staff here are very good, extremely friendly and always willing to help. They also put in place appropriate rules so that you are free to do what you want, as long as it doesnt interfere with other guests. A really nice balance. location is good, safe and central.

Amazing DC option
Another great experience staying with HI Washington. 2nd stay here in thr last 2 months and if i was visiting washington again would stay here too. Staff are genuinely happy to help you out with local directions and always friendly. Good location (a bit of a walk from the mall but keeps the price down which I'd much prefer). Good WiFi that works everywhere, nice kitchen with facilities if you want to cook for yourself. Security is good to as have to pass the front desk on the way into the hostel and you can't get into the living part without a key card.

Everything about my stay was exactly what I would expect from a hostel: small clean room, lots of world travellors sharing stories and tips and food and wine, free tours, big community kitchen. I LOVE HOSTELS! I WOULD EVEN ADD THAT HOSTELS HAVE BECOME MORE FAMILY FRIENDLY. THERE WAS A BUSLOAD OF SMART SWEET WELL BEHAVED 3RD GRADERS ON A SCHOOL FIELD TRIP.

This was the first time I have stayed in a Hostel. Everything was nice until at 5 am, one of the people staying in the room kept hitting the snooze on his alarm for 15 min. I finally got up and left for the hotel i was staying in for the rest of the week.
