Reviews

The hostel had a few walking tours which was good for meeting people and lots of hang-out areas. The reception staff were a little flat, they weren't rude, just not very friendly, they didn't seem interested in anything. The breakfast guy was incredibly friendly in comparison. The mattress was pretty uncomfortable compared to all the other hostels I stayed. Free breakfast was great and the hostel is in a good location, walking distance to the national mall.
