Qualidade do sono
Barato (muito barato) e para quem quer só dormir
Avaliou em 3 de Agosto de 2017
Local muito interessante e barato para quem quer só dormir. Não oferece passeios nem nada, sem café, mas com boas opções próximas (fiz algumas avaliações).
A cama é razoável. Não é a pior que eu dormi, mas também tem todos os problemas de ser um beliche. O banheiro é de uso comum, mas nunca tive problemas por estar cheio. Alguns locais dormem lá também e vez ou outra pode ser um bom papo para conhecer pessoas normais. Há uma cozinha pequena e geladeira, para quem quiser.
Eu recomendo, principalmente porque Washington é uma cidade muito cara.
Ótima opção para quem quer pagar pouco

Fiquei duas noites neste Hostel, na 7ª Avenue, em Washington. Acabei ficando em um quarto de duas beliches, mas praticamente sozinho. Tudo limpo e bem organizado. A localização também é boa, já que não está longe da estação de trem e dos principais pontos turístico da capital americana.
Amigável e tranquilo

Hostel para quem deseja tranquilidade noturna. O ambiente é amigável, tanto entre os hóspedes como com o staff. Área comum ampla e satisfatória. Quartos e banheiros sempre limpos (cerca de 2-3 vezes ao dia), porém no verão os quartos são quentes. Localização confortável para caminhadas aos principais pontos de interesse.

I mean this quite literally, as the owners have obviously sourced some of their mattresses from those tossed out as garbage by other people - details below.
I chose to stay here because it was a half-mile walk from Union Station, and I was unwilling to pay the ~$300 that area hotels were looking for. In retrospect, I should have stayed at the official HI (Hostelling International) hostel, which costs about the same.
I arrived at the front door, pushed the doorbell, but the door wasn't opened and I didn't heard anything. Thinking whoever was running the place was distant from the door, I pounded on it with my palm. Finally someone came out of a side door, complaining of my loudness. I said that if they had a sign with info / instructions on the front door, I wouldn't have felt the need to act as I did.
A young woman confirmed my reservation and briefly showed me around the place. They give you a very small piece of paper containing the codes for the front door as well as the door of the room you'll be staying in. An older woman - neither of them had English as their first language, told me that if I lost this scrap of paper that I'd have to pay for my bed a second time to get access. There were only two bunks in my room, with a Vietnamese guy in his 40's and a woman in her 60's - which surprised me. However, since I'm 70 perhaps they meant this as a room for adults vs. kids.
I ran my hand down the mattress on my bed and knew immediately that it would never do, as there was a loose wire just below the surface, and it clearly should have been discarded years ago. My interpretation was that someone else had in fact discarded it, but the hostel felt they could get away with giving it to some unsuspecting person for a while longer.
The mattress on the top bunk was a little bit better, although far from good, so I swapped them and used a trick I'd developed in my travels when I have to deal with a poor mattress. I stripped the sheet off it, and put the duvet and my sleeping bag between the mattress and the top sheet. Duvets are too heavy for me to sleep under, so I asked the younger woman for a top sheet and received one. I have no idea how frequently they wash the duvet covers. The springs on the bunks sag quite a bit, and perhaps only half have plywood over them; I moved the plywood from the top to bottom.
It wasn't a great night, but far better than it would have been with the original mattress. The next day the woman was leaving to go to the official hostel, and I discovered that her bunk had a newer mattress, so I grabbed it and slept much better the next night.
However, on my last night I could hear and feel someone climb to the bunk above me at about 10:30 PM, and just assumed it was a traveler arriving late. However, this person left at first light (~5:30) and I noticed he had slept fully dressed and didn't have any luggage - he actually looked like a street-person, so I don't know what the situation was. I sent a message to the hostel, alerting them to having an intruder, and suggesting it was time to change the codes. They claimed they knew who it was, but wouldn't provide any details on what to me was a very sketchy situation.
Minimum Standard and Noisy Neighborhood

The hostel was generally clean and the location good, yet many aspects made the stay unpleasant. Nobody was at the counter until 1 PM on the weekends such that new visitors couldn't access. No paper towels the first day. No separation between men and women in the only available combined restroom/shower room. No natural light in the 4-bed room I stayed in. Wireless too weak to work in the kitchen area. No breakfast for a very high base price. It's not the hostel's fault, but there is a night club close by which was very loud the two nights I stayed there. All in all, only an emergency option.
