Liked: The Youth Hostel was really close to the National Mall, the metro station and the bus station. It was even possible to walk from Union Station to the hostel. The staff was really friendly and also ready to answer all your questions. The breakfastthey provided was a good basic breakfast with a nice atmosphere. I went on the Monument Tour By Night, which was a great way to meet new people and get some of the Washington history.

Disliked: The matrass on the bed was not very thick, which means it was hard to sleep on my side (but perfect if you sleep on your back).

Liked: Clean rooms with lockers. The shower room was ok. There is a breakfast until 9:30.

Disliked: The group rooms are capable of development. There was only a small lobby and the dining room in the second floor.

Liked: Library nearby, Ethiopian restaurant right next door, subway nearby, good neighborhood, near what I needed to be near.

Disliked: They didn't have my reservation when I got there. I showed them the email confirmation and they put me in a larger dorm but charged me the same price, though they did fix that after the first night. The room was chilly, probably down to the 50s or even 40s, and when I asked they said the air conditioning couldn't be fixed. So we're wasting fossil fuels to make people uncomfortably cold in the summer. The lockers were too small for even my laptop, much less my suitcase, and were far away from the rooms.
