This was my second time to stay here. I love the location! The amenities are sufficient, its not a 4 star hotel - but its not supposed to be! its a Hostel! - so you get to enjoy a great price. I will stay again. Complementary breakfast - some cereal, muffins, toast, juice, etc. You have to pay a small fee if you are not a member, but if you plan on staying more than a night or two you should just get the membership. Shared bathroom/shower space. very helpful staff. Lots of planned activities!

The staff members were friendly & prompt in their service. It's convenient having washers & driers at the basement. It's nice having free breakfast to start off the day. It was a great chance to get to know other guests, who are of various nationalities. Perhaps some beds in the dorm might need a little fixing, since they creak so much, even with a slight move. And maybe there's a way to add ventilation too. Still, my stay at HI was great overall. :) I'll choose it again when I travel to DC.

Had a great stay here, the staff were great fun and really helpful with tips on where to go and how to get to places. The hostel had a good free breakfast offering and was pretty clean the whole time I was there. It is in a handy location for a metro station and many of the tourist sites and lots of restaurants are just a short walk away. Overall a really good hostel to stay at with a quiet but friendly atmosphere. My only criticism would be that the room I stayed in smelt a bit like hamster.
