Liked: The location was great.

Disliked: The wifi was substandard at best. Additionally the cleanliness of the hostel was questionable. Our sheets had stains on them, and the bathrooms (including showers) were quite dirty overall.

Liked: Nice staff, quiet safe area. Desk in room.

Disliked: You MUST declare it on the website if the hot water is iffy!!! 2 out of 3 of the showers I tried did not have hot water - I let it run a LONG time (10 mins) and tried the dial in multiple positions - this is frankly expected when hostelling in South America, or Africa, but is unacceptable in Washington DC. The toilet on level 2 had a broken handle/no lid and you had to pull a piece of string dangling out of the top of the open cistern. It had clearly been that way a long time by the look of the bedraggled notice on the door. They clearly invest in nice furnishings over very basic essentials.


The property's response is

hey there,

thanks for your comments - we do update things on our twitter/facebook for sure - and it's on our website! It's also all been fixed, it takes a long time to get a replacement part for a tank less water heater from outside of USA =(.

Thanks!
