leon0144 The location is within walking distance to Union Station and from there to other attraction was easy. The room and bed was clean and smell fresh. Service staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The only problem is the lack of toilets, will have to wait long when there is alot of people.
levchiks I was very dissapointed with breakfast - there were only pancakes and that's it. No cheese, bread, cottege, vegetables, fruits - nothing. Only pancakes.

mab0631 This was a very effective place to stay in a city that thrives on action. I like the location because it was near a Circulator bus stop and a major street so easy to use for all purposes. The staff was very friendly and realistic but also adhered to the rules. The fellow guests were a delightful mix and even some who were in the "senior" category other than myself. It's not fancy. It is cheap and clean. It is a hostel and it works extremely well.
EnoughRope This wasn't really like staying at a youth hostel, more like staying over at someone's house when they happened to be having a lot of houseguests, or an extended lost weekend. This is the sort of place where some people go off to bed at a sensible hour, while others stay downstairs playing poker till two in the morning, or drinking beer, or just talking about stuff (on the night I was there, the crowd included an epicure from Arkansas, a young graduate interviewing for a job at the White House, an actor from England, and a Dutch man about to run his 53rd marathon). Also, there are plenty of communal activities - if you like that sort of thing; it's also perfectly possible not to take part. During the day, though, when the place is empty, sitting on the porch and reading a book feels restful, like you're visiting your parents. Location wise, it's a short walk from a metro station, which is useful, although the station is about 15-20 minutes out of town. Not much in the neighbourhood - a handy seven-eleven and liquor store nearby, but really you'll be wanting to head into the centre. Slightly too many beds in each room, and slightly too few bathrooms, but that probably keeps the cost down. Very good value, and a great place to meet interesting people.
cakewreck Cool hostel. Nothing to complain about really. Comfortable beds. The air in the room got quite thick when all beds were occupied though. And I'd say that calling it next to the subway is a truth with modifications. You have to walk a few blocks, but no, it's not that far so it still is convenient. So, all in all, I would definitely recommend Loftstel!

mpaloproma As the hostel had just opened when we stayed, bathrooms were not very clean, and we had to wait til 10 pm to had a bed. However, the staff is nice and everything is new.

eemie50 Very sweet hotel,in a marvelous neighborhood.You can walk almost everywhere. They did have a plumbing problem in my room,so they moved me to another room,an upgrade,at no extra charge.I recommend the hotel to anyone who knows they will be out and about and will only sleep at the hotel,by and large.Be sure to say hello to Mona,the adorable house cat!
r.berns We stayed three days in the Embassey Inn. Facilities were good. Our room was in the lower level, the basement. so we didn't have a vieuw on the street. We just saw a wall of briks. That was a pity, but no more, because we left in the morning to see the city and arrived in the evening when it was almost dark. We had a good stay in this hotel. Because of the good location, we could walk to the center of the city (White House etc.). I can recommend this hotel.
mrsbuntoo Overall an excellent stay in DC enhanced by the quietest hotel accomodation we have ever had - were we just lucky with our room in a corner location?? Room was not huge but ample for such a centrally stuated hotel . New bathroom fittings ,I believe, with the simplest shower setup - one simple lever instead of a myriad of taps and handles. Is there a working lift? On arrival we were told there wasn't then later that it was out of order . There could be more info on getting around (eg local buses) which we found difficult to locate. Food in restaurant was adequate and there are lots of eateries nearby too.
