Clean place and friendly personnel, they even put ear plugs in the rooms for sleeping better and swipe the rooms in the morning, bathrooms are clean as well as the kitchen. All the staff is very kind. They organize tours and activities. Ricky is a nice guy and very helpful. Next to Union Station the place is close to trains (Amtrak, Metro) and buses (WMATA, Greyhound, Bolt)

It such a nice atmosphere in the hostel. It is not that big and everybody is pretty close and it is natural that people are chatting and spending time together. Everybody tried to respect one another and to be quiet in the room at late times. The facilities are also really nice, for instance the roof top for sitting outside or the living room downstairs. Also the rooms were really nice, even with 12 beds (what we booked). The staff was really nice and helpful. The hostel gave you a feeling of being home.

It is hosted in an old victorian building. The furniture is from another time. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We booked 6 bed room and they gave us 5 bed, I liked the decoration of the rooms and common places. There is a metro station and a grocery nearby. The kitchen is well equipped. Conclusively, I highly recommend it for low budget travelers.
