Amenities were empty. The AC did not work. The smell of the hotel was off-putting. No hot water in the showers. night staff were unfriendly - day staff were good

Rooms are literally just a room. The closest is a bathroom. You can hear the room next you flush the toilet. No playing music in your room or else you’ll get a knock on your door. Horrible experience.

It's a nice smaller place, many of the rooms are snug, yet comfy, and it's even a tad fancy, esp. given it's considered a budget hotel.

Have stayed several times, and while not an upscale venue, it's modern and clean, and surprisingly good in so many ways, extra plus in it's convenient location near Dupont and Logan Circles, and easy access to downtown.

Room smell like someone just smoke and i ask non smoking!!!! I saw the fire alarm wrap on plastic, the toilet door knob is broken, toilet tissue holder is broken and and not to mention the towel rack is broken too... The ff morning i drop the remote on the floor and i saw an empty bottle of coke under the bed. I was wondering if the house keeping really change all the beddings before they other people check in?!?! I took all pictures of the concern to show the Gen. manager but the person in the concierge said his not coming back until Monday so i didn't even bother. I hope they can improve all of the things that was mention above.

It's a good convenient place to stay to many things in DC, and the price point is good. It's not fancy and on the smaller side, but it's rather sleek in the balance of things. Has wifi, TV, a shared kitchenette that has a refrigerator and microwave, there is also some service ware.

Friendly & and excellent staff. No kitchen @ small rooms.

Nice place, would book with confidence. Clean and quiet.

Everything as advertised. Close to everything. Friendly

Really long seemingly disorganized check-in and absolutely no rooms available for early check-in. Apparently a "garden" room means it is below street level, so the window view is of a sidewalk patio above you. Cute modern decor and a nice patio for sitting outside, but the area was swarming with mosquitoes so staying put outside was not a smart option. Some citronella candles or insect traps, maybe?

Great location and quaint hotel in Dupont Circle with close proximity to U Street.

Nice area. Place is dirty and smelly due to construction. Only the lobby is halfway presentable. I understand this is a hostel but paint chips should not be stuck to the bottom of my nikes. Staff was rude and incompetent. It literally took five tries to get me into the room. The first time I had the clerk try himself since he had condescendingly suggested I may not know how to operate this sophisticated key. He could not get in and tried to make me wait in the dirty hallway until he figures it out. I watched him go back and forth to only get into a hot stuffy room. Maybe it was the extra body heat in such a tiny space. Which is understandable but the air conditioning was half sufficient. Never again.

Hi Ralph, I was very disappointed and embarrassed when I read your feedback. None of these issues should be happening and the totality is completely unacceptable. Please feel free to contact me directly on Monday if you have the time.
