      overall it was really nice, the staff was friendly and the capsule felt very safe. i think the sheets could be cleaner, and i didn’t like how they ask us to remove the bed sheets for them before checkout.

      For my first ever stay in a hostel, I was excited especially to see and being one that had the capsules or if you will, pods that I have seen on TV or read about being in many of the hostels on continental Europe. This was a very exciting and it far exceeded my expectations.

      I had a great time at the hostel. The staff were very nice and I enjoyed the experience of staying in a bed capsule. If I ever come back to Dc, I’ll stay in the hostel for sure :)

      HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!

      I got there and no one was there to let me in. I stood outside in the heat for 1 hr and 20 min until a guest finally let me. Had to wait for another 35 min for a staff member to check me in. This was a nightmare!!
