Washington DC is the capitol of the United States and rich with
monuments, history and places to see.
The two hostels I recommend in Washington DC (because of their location) are the Hostelling International (HI) hostel, and the International Student Center hostel. They are both within a few blocks of the White House, The Capitol, and the all the other monuments on the Mall (Lincoln Memorial etc).
