More bang for ur buck, with no bangs in the night
I'm not sure which is better, the location or the tireless friendly staff. And they even put the address in the name, so you never forget where it is, on the way home after a drink at 1 of the dozens of places to go surrounding you. Not a single bed bug in all the months staying here, well maybe 1, but it was crawling across the road at the conveniently located Chinatown Light Rail Stop, probably utterly defeated by G St. Hotel's might of super cleanliness. Forget the "S", this place is more of a hotel than a hostel, even though there are dorm rooms probably available.
