10/10 Exceptional

Great stay exceeded all expectations!
Great stay, exceeded all expectations. Even the coffee with complimentary pancake breakfast was top notch. As an American, this hostel was a great place to learn about building a health clinic in Fiji or about sea grass in Scotland or how to cook a delicious octopus dinner or how to go 6 weeks in America before getting your first paycheck, or perhaps most importantly, how to remain loyal to one's own socks through thick or thin (literally). Friendly staff, friendly hostel guests, fantastic rooftop hangout. I highly recommend!

This is my experience
Air. Condition not working in our room, the guy try to set 72 but it’s going always 74 , but staying people are friendly and kitchen break fast food making women also good hard work , but only one type break fast daily. For shoes also less place , the morning Helpdesk lady not that much customer friendly, all visitors are good and friendly from different states and countries I like that very much.

It’s a tedious long process checking in, and for a traveler abroad a USB plug would be nice to have at the bed side

24 hour access, friendly staff, pancakes every morning, serviceable, well-stocked kitchen, free linens and towel all very good. Sleeping and living space air conditioned just right, top floor (kitchen and dining and small sitting/computer room) we're warm in June heat. Roof deck is great but has little shade. Location is spectacular - right near the White House and everything else, yet felt very safe.

6/10 Good

Two of the bathrooms the sinks have a note Out of order, that was very inconvient because the place was crowded. There were three refrigerators. Two of them the lower part didn’t work. The smell was horrible. The location is the best part. Tô check in you have tô wait 10-15 minutes because there is only one receptionist and he had tô show the room tô every guest. They have two buildings so waiting tô check in can bê 30 minutes or more. That’s what I observed.

I wanted to love it but
I am not an expert but there looked to be mold in the vent that was right above my bed as I slept. My bed (top bunk) was also missing the back guard rail. It was also extremely warm throughout the hostel and made it uncomfortable to sleep in. Also be advised that there is no parking so you’ll have to park on the street. Read the signs closely or else you’ll end up with a $100 parking ticket. The staff were very friendly but overall, I wouldn’t stay here again regardless of the price.

One stove and one microwave for numerous people was my only concern. Efficient staff. Quite relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend to anyone who is in need of a place to sleep and meet interesting people from all over the world.
