It has a good location 10 mins from Union Station and walking distance to Smithsonian. Ok atmosphere and good comfortable place to sleep. Lockers are outside the room so it is a bit inconvenient but also quieter.

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.
