Liked: The place was very clean, safe and secure.The location was good, 10 to 15 minutes walking to the National Mall, which I think it's great!

Disliked: The heating was not working in my room. -5º outside, -5º inside. Said that, plus their policy of "no shoes" = cold or flu guaranteed!

Liked: The staff was amazing, always ready for help. The hostel was clean, but the bedroom I was, (the one upstairs) wasn't so clean, it could be better. The location was perfect, and the costs worth it.

Liked: I was impressed with the staff's assistance upon my arrival, and during my stay...the pancakes each day for breakfast were very tasty...they also put on a BBQ on Sunday night, which got every guest mingling with others...a good night.Another thing that I liked was that they had some computers for people to use upstairs.

Disliked: My plug for a recharger seemed to be little wobbly �

Liked: Clean, helpful staff.

Disliked: Crowded crowded crowded. 12 to a dorm -not ok felt packed in like sardines, dorms so hot especially at night, no air con in dorm that i saw, no personal space, even bathroom was communal, minimal lighting & done in hallways. Kitchen on 3rd floor, small, cramped, no room for personal food prep when people at table, you have to walk through kitchen to get to frig & dining table so congestion ++.pancakes looked good but if you can't eat those no other options. Won't recommend it, expensive for facilities provided.So cramped
