Liked: Location was very good (in walking distance to the National Mall), lockers were available in the room

Disliked: The room wasn't very clean. It looked very old and could definitely need an update. The shower didn't work as it should be (there was barely any pressure + you had to turn on the faucet of the sink in order to get warm water in the shower)

Liked: I appreciated there were only 4 beds in my room, there were lockers available, it was a woman's only room and the bathroom was ensuite. I also appreciated that they have a dishwasher and the kitchen was clean each time I used it.

Disliked: While I liked the policy people had to take off their shoes slippers should have been available.

Liked: The very cheap price

Disliked: The furniture and acomodations were old and not very clean. The bed was not confortable. The heating was too hot the first night, so we had to complain at the help desk. They ajusted it, but in the next night it was hot again. The kitchen was not clean and really small for all the people we have on the hostel.

Liked: The hostel is clean and well run. The staff are very helpful.

Disliked: The hostel is split across two buildings (1333 and 1335). The kitchen is in one building and the relaxing space is in the other building. This is quite inconvenient.
