    As a budget-oriented traveler, I've stayed in a lot of hostels around the world whenever I travel solo. Capital View was by far one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. The rooms are clean and spacious, and even though I was in a...More

    Thanks so much for your comments. We do try to make sure everyone enjoys their stay, and we're happy to see a positive experience!

    Quite a roomy hostel about 10 minutes' walk from Capitol Hill. The staff were friendly and helpful, the place is clean and comfortable and there's two common areas, one with a kitchen, and a roof top patio as well. Would have preferred a more secure...More

    Response from Dc L, Manager at Capital ViewResponded 22 July 2016

    Thank you! Do keep in mind that we can securely lock all important items in the office for you, and the less secure storage area that is free can be used for bulky luggage. Due to our proximity to the Library of Congress and generally...More

    Stayed there for one night on the 3rd floor girls dormitory. There was space and shelves for belongings, along with lockers for more valuable items. The beds were very uncomfortable and was not able to sleep easily. There was an insect on the wall, which...More

    The location of the place was ok, only a short 15 minute walk from the train station and about the same to get down to National Mall. The hostel staff were very warm, welcoming and friendly. The price of the hostel for 3 nights was...More

    hey there, thanks so much for your review. We do refill free coffee/tea/sugar/creamer/oil/pancake mix and peanut butter daily, and I've reviewed the logs, and saw it there at all times; I'm sorry if somehow coffee was empty every time you checked, must have gotten refilled...More

    Thank you for your response, but I have to address it on multiple inconsistencies, since they are very untrue. "1. We reserved through the website Hostelworld.com for 2 nights by credit card. We also paid a 12% deposit (19$) for the hostel" - Correct, there...More
