Good hostel to stay at in DC if you're on a budget. The location is perfect and within walking distance to the National Mall. The room was clean and had a operable window which is a plus at any hostel. The bathrooms were clean although you do get the odd clumps of hair left by others in the shower. Complimentary breakfast was good and the guy who runs it is very welcoming. There was also free wifi and I managed to use this all the way on the 5th floor. The hostel is alcohol-free so many nights were quiet. A couple of minor issues, 1) the lift is incredibly slow and 2) the AC is extremely loud especially in the evening, which made it difficult trying to get sleep. Overall, not a bad stay.
