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.

Liked: Stayed in the King Suite, which is a lovely, spacious room. Unfortunately, upon my arrival I found the toilet was blocked. I informed the staff, who were responsive and acted quickly to get it fixed. The property is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest train station and an easy 20 minute walk to the White House area.
