We spent two nights here and that was enough. The neighborhood is pretty bad, we felt very unsafe even during daytime. The common area and the dorm rooms were not clean, the bathroom was even worse. All in all not a good experience, though it was pretty cheap. In the end you get what you pay for.

Despite what the other reviews say, my 2-night stay at this hostel was the worst I've ever had - and I'd say I stayed in about 25 hostels all over the world during my travels so far. Firstly, the neighbourhood is dodgy and it doesn't feel safe at all (the cornershop has a bullet-proof glass between counters and customers, just so that you can paint a picture...),

second, the check-in went really bad. We had a reservation made through HostelBookers.com for three people, however the housekeeper was not there when we arrived and there was another guy to check us in. He said "Bill" only informed him of one person arriving - so he began arguing with us about the reservation. After about 20 minutes of discussion, he proposed to put me and my boyfriend on one bed, and a friend of us on another one - cause apparently one bed was missing for us.

And third, to top it up, the room where we were staying with my boyfriend in the end was just terrible. It was a basement room, terribly smelling of cigarettes and something unidentifiable, maybe just the smell of a room where there is no window and you put four people in there...

So, to sum up, DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOSTEL, even though it is very cheap, it is not worth the saved money.

this hostel was cheap and a bed for the night (or three), but it was pretty dirty, difficult to find and far out from where you woud probably wanna be if visiting DC. The owner is lovely, and helpful, but the one thing that absolutely ruined it for us was a certain other 'guest' who had been essentially living at the hostel for six months but snored so loudly it absolutely ruined our stay. The walls were sheets, so we could hear everything going on in other rooms oO... and the bathroom was dirty. I don't expect a lot from hostels...but I thought this was simply below par. It wouldng take a lot to clean the place and get either a new wall or something else more substantial than a sheet. HOWEVER. If you aren't fussy about things like that then go nuts it does the job if you got no dollar

Thanks Bill.
Great stay.
Folks, bill is a caring, helpful and wonderful man.
The hostel at first appears cramped and a little stuffy, but there is a garden area to suit in and is really quick to get to the museums and center.
Good place to stay.
Go well
Stef

Room Tip: I'd insist on the quiet side, not the road

Bill, the owner, makes the whole experience of getting to and from the hostel a breeze. Our flight was delayed by 8 hours and he was kind enough to stay up late to check us in and collect us from the metro. He's really helpful and friendly and always on hand to help. Th

e hostel itself is comfortable with clean towels and linens and double bed sized bunks. The decor is a little tired and it's by no means luxurious but if you're an experienced traveller and prepared for it to be a little rough around the edges, you'll be fine. We really liked the neighbourhood and found people friendly. We enjoyed the walk into the centre of Washington DC via trendy H Street. For the price, you can't beat this place, just don't expect it to be pristine.
