Liked: I liked the location, and the freedom to come and go.

Disliked: Nights were a little noisy because you are literally located where all the good stuff is happening. The blankets they give you are also pretty thin, so I found myself layering up in my jackets in order to fall asleep.

Liked: Location is good if you want to be close to Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan.

Disliked: Doesn't accept credit cards, the one who sleeps on the lower bed of the bunk bed has virtually no space above them, total lack of power outlets, wifi incredibly slow and looks totally shady.
