This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel is very well located. It was really convenient to go out during the night, to eat in some fancy restaurants and to visit DC.

If I come back to DC, I will definitively book up this hostel again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A great neighbourhood with many bars/clubs/eateries but of course this means you have to be a heavy sleeper as revelries are loud, right outside the hostel and up until 3am or even later on occasion.

Hostel itself has great showers and if you get up early or late enough you can get into one of the 3 bathrooms but it really needs more. Bathrooms are cleaned but the rest of the place is a bit scummy - washing up in the sink all week, no sign of a vacuum cleaner etc and the rooms are so crowded with absolutely no space for people's stuff that in my room you could barely see the floor let alone clean it. There is secure storage but not much.

Staff are absolutely lovely and I enjoyed it as a place to crash

This place was really surprising, its like a little appartment with a couple rooms and a few bathrooms. It was not advertised as that. The staff are friendly enough but I was concerned about the cleanliness of the place. Do not think I would go back, especially as the "complimentary breakfast" was a slice of toast. Not worth what we paid for a private room.
