Owner's nice enough, but the ability to conduct personal hygiene leaves much to be desired. Mattresses are all severely overdue to be replaced between serviceability and age. Shower water was always ice cold no matter what direction the faucet was turned. Any and all liquid soap was watered down; which is surprising considering we just went through a pandemic where just about everyone learned that you don't water down soap. Ever. Toilet paper takes roughly a business day to replace. Absolutely no paper towels at all. Ended up buying my own bad soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. so I could conduct what I thought was an acceptable level of hygiene. Cleaning that gets done is with minimal work/effort. Bedsheets also stand to be replaced based on how raggedy some of them are. I've stayed in hostels before. This is not a typical hostel experience; at least when comparing to hostels in Europe. If you're looking for a place to stay in DC without spending over 100 a night a hostel is the way to go, but bring your own cleaning/hygiene supplies.
