My favorite hostel in DC so far. I like the location next to Union Station and on the busy H street corridor - lots of restaurants and other stuff near by. The hostel is really nice inside - good decorations and lighting. I like the no shoes policy. The beds are comfortable. Activities every night.

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.
