About Washington International Student Center

This is the hostel to stay in if you want to be on the hippest street in town. With bars, nightclubs, and restaurants located just stumbling feet away, the W.I.S.C. is also very close to the train/bus station and famous landmarks. Without a doubt, this is a great location. There is a large Safeway grocery store and ethnic restaurants located just outside the door meters away. Although, the pizza place right next door has the absolute hugest slices of pizza you'll ever see and you could probably live off of one slice for a few days if need be.

If you happen to be traveling by yourself, like I was, this is a great hostel to meet other travelers. Visitors and staff hang out in the common area and make you feel at home. The next thing you know you are hanging out with a bunch of strangers from other countries having the time of your life.
