As a traveler, you know that feeling when you walk into a hostel and are extremely relieved that you made the best choice? That's honestly how good the Downtown DC Hostel is. It had a terrific, homely atmosphere. Its location is terrific, right next to Union Station. The staff member on duty 24/7, Savino, was terrific and really friendly, and definitely contributed to the wonderful atmosphere. Even when I checked in so late at night, he gave me the full detailed tour and answered all of my questions fully and patiently. The hostel plays a huge role in how good your trip is and I couldn't ask for a better hostel experience in DC.
I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this is definitely up there as one of the best. You're welcomed by awesomely awesome, super-friendly staff who put on nightly activities (pub crawls, game nights, TACO TUESDAY). There's also happy hour every night with two free beers so what's there to complain about that? The living area is open 24/7 and has Netflix, Xbox, Wii, board games etc etc. The kitchen has everything you need + plenty of storage for food. There's no lock out and no curfew though quiet hours 10pm-10am as it is a small hostel. In saying that, it's not the world's biggest hostel but that is definitely a good thing, it's so easy to meet other travellers and make friends with both the people staying there and the staff (who are always up to hang and have a chat if they're around. I've never felt more comfortable in a hostel than I have here. Thanks Jude, Carolyn, Savon, Amsal and Dylan!!!

Good atmosphere for young travellers who mostly want to meet people and have a good time. Enough space to hang out and alcohol allowed.
Excellent location in good neighbourhood. Good powerful showers. Generous amount of pancakes for breakfast. Lovely roof terrace.

In a great location a few minutes walk from a key Metro Station as well as the Circulator bus. The hostel has great facilities including a very good kitchen. The common areas are good and the TV area has both cable and Netflix if your inclined to watch! The free breakfast is excellent - be prepared with a good morning in a language other than English though - this is your cost to access the free breakfast! Activities are good with normally one or two each day and all free. The staff are outstanding and having John run the breakfast and always ready with a smile gets your day stated well!
Everything about this hostel is great. I've stayed in tons of hotels and this is one of the best. The events and location is great.

Really nice dorm. Warm and cozy. The staff are all very nice and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are nice and clean and cleaned regularly. The kitchen is open to all guests. The staff also prepare activities each week for the guests so it's really easy to get to know people. The rooms had adequate closet and storage space. They also provide free lockers. You just need to bring your own lock for it.
Clean rooms and bathrooms, fast internet, friendly staff and great location. It's clean, secure and cosy. It was near a metro station so commuting is super convenient.

Having a kitchen is great and the room was good too. Walking distance to the National Mall Close supermarkets
We stayed in a mixed dorm with shared bathroom and it was great. Clean linen, fresh towels, personal locker, lamp/ plug socket and our bunk was in the corner so it felt quite snug. Location was fine for us, you get those people who complain about a 5/10 minute walk but it's not that bad, 5 minutes from the train station, 10 minutes to Chinatown and 15 minutes to the main area with all the sights! There is a supermarket and liquor store less than 5 minutes away and the communal kitchen has 3 fridges and shelves to put everything away. Kitchen facilities were great - lots left behind by other travellers e.g. salt, oil etc so check before you go to the supermarket! There were slippers by the front door if you wanted them but don't listen to the other reviews - we were never asked to remove our shoes! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Communal living areas were pretty nice; 2 computers and free printing if needed, outside smoking area, lots of seating and 2 huge TV screens with access to Netflix etc. Security codes needed for front door and bedroom door so it is safe.
