    Fantastic hostel! Rooms were clean and chic, bathrooms were clean and big. Beds are comfy with a nice privacy curtain. The atmosphere was great, lots of people from businessmen to families to solo travellers. The whole place has a very classy, fun feel to it. The cafe is wonderful. Great selection at really reasonable prices. The staff was helpful and friendly, and there was always someone at the desk. I will definitely stay here again!

    Thank you, for a great experience. I stayed in a mixed dorm-curtains created all the privacy needed. The room was clean, spacious with a good view. Bed was very comfortable and linen clean. Transit service within walking distance - although in my view central DC is definitely a cycle city. Very good location, Dupont Circle and Embassy Row are just around the corner. Good value for money, great atmosphere. Many sitting options in the lounge for individual or group gatherings. Thank you.

    Gorgeous hostel with plenty of fun areas to hang out and relax or socialize. Probably one of the fanciest hostels I've stayed in and the beds were super comfy. I did miss having a kitchen to cook/store food in but their cafe breakfast was delicious. Staff didn't knock before coming in to clean in the morning which took us by surprise but over all a lovely stay.

    Very Good

    It was a very nice hostel. More like a hotel room with bunk beds, but it was very nice. The location is a bit out of the way of public transportation, but it is in a very good spot with lots of restaurants. Over all a great place to stay while your in DC!

    This is a hotel pretending to be a hostel. There was no social atmosphere or activities to meet other travelers. This place is really boring. Also, no free breakfast, so you're constantly buying food. The pool was closed during my entire stay. I hate that I have to walk to the front desk from the 8th floor to ask for an iron and ironing board (they will ask for your ID), bring it to my room to iron my wrinkled clothes and go back to front desk to return the items I borrowed. Don't recommend here

    Although the public spaces of are well kept and the staff is very friendly, my actual room was a different story. When I booked a shared space, I expected other people to be in and out however, I did not expect that one of the roommates would be “living” in the space long term. The man in my room had a office set up at the shared desk including a desktop computer, laptop, and all accessories. The room had not been cleaned in sometime. Half eaten food containers and urine on bathroom floor.
