      Very Good8.0
      Good stay for the price
      It was my first time to use a hostel, and it wasn’t a bad experience. I felt safe, bedding was clean, and the bathroom was ok. Though I didn’t like someone watching us at the breakfast, they had decent menu for a hostel. Overall, it was a good stay for the price.

      It is a clean and tidy hostel situated in a location close to the Whole House and nation museum.

      I would stay her again
      This was my first time staying at a hostel. It was a very good experience. The staff were all super nice and helpful. The building is within walking distance of the national mall and only a few blocks away from a metro station. My bed was comfortable and didn’t make noise when I climbed up to the top bunk. I would definitely stay here again. Cons: Shower area was kind of creepy, elevator was slow, and I had some loud neighbors one night.

      Great for young travelers who want best excitement
      A great travel experience! This was the 1st time I try staying at a Hostel (why not, let's check it out for once,I said). Very fun, interesting experience. Highly recommended for younger travelers who don't mind giving up a bit of hotels comforts in exchange for the experience. You make friends, explore travel options and enrich cultural/ educational exposures that can not be found elsewhere. Safe, clean, convenient, fun, and of course very affordable. What could be bad? well actually yes, you may get in a room with a person who snores a bit loudly,...oh well, for the price, right?

      so convenient and safe
      an oasis in a big city clean, friendly and convenient to the white house and the metro. I was expecting toast and tea for breakfast, instead, there is sausage, eggs, cereals and juice all served buffet style.. I appreciate the women only room and the hot showers..
