    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...

    Excellent services from friendly, courteous welcoming and professional staff people. Great location for any business midtown Washington, Spend three nights but would definitely come back again when visiting the town again. Will strongly recommend anyone to stay at Capital Comfort Hostel

    Poor customer service. No night-time front desk attendant. I asked if the attendant could print a 3 page document and I would pay. There is a printer in the office. It was a nonconfidential document. He said no. My bus arrived later than originally planned and I had to wait at Union Station overnight because no one could check me...

    Travellers, this IS a HOSTEL!! The prices are extremely reasonable. I booked initially for 4 days this past weekend in a 4 bed room, but ended up staying for a 5th. The staff was very cordial, especially the older gentleman that checked me in. He was welcoming in a natural sort of way, which immediately put me at ease. My...

    Unprofessional, bad service, no education at all, didnt reply any emails sent before arribal at the hostel, no towels didnt even bother to try to get them for us, manager was insulting a lady and calling her names at the reception. Bottom line not worth the money unleast ur really desperate and cant find a place to stay.

    The location is prime near a Metro Stop, grocery stores, a 7/11 store, etc. It has reliable internet and is mostly clean. Much about a hostel depends on its residents, and you never know what you are going to get. When we were there we originally were in an 8 person dorm and it smelled really bad. Fortunately the owner...

    We only stayed one night at this hostel, we arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning, so not much experience. The place is very simple, we booked the cheapest bed we could but it turned out to be more expensive than what our reservation said. We did not have strength to argue and as the difference...
