Great astmophere. Staff are very friendly and immediately gets you into the flow of things and how everything works.brigette does a good job of making sure your stay is the best quality possible. Having relationships with the staff and others who stay makes your stay better. I have a feeling during my next two nights the place will grow on... More

We really enjoyed our stay at DC Lofty. The bunk beds were comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen were clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the common areas provided enough space to read a book and relax. *My only complaint is that an older man on the premises, who I assume to be part owner/investor, was very openly nasty...

I've stayed in a variety of Hostels and have found them all to be nice and manageable. That was until I walked into DC Lofty. From the moment my group walked in, the girl behind the desk said "I wasn't expecting five of you." Apparently there was a mix-up with the order. We booked 5 guests for an 8 bedroom... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! Great homely feeling, you can't wear shoes inside but they give you these slippers to wear instead. It was a bit of a walk into the city centre, but there was a cheap liquor store one block away, definite plus. The staff were very friendly and we met some amazing people. They... More

I recently stayed here for a few days with a friend. It's a nice place with two houses next door to each other you do have to walk outside to get from one to the other but it's not a big hassle. The staff are really friendly and helpful. There is also a kitchen but no oven but there is... More

The rooms were great. Reasonably priced, clean, spacious. Each bed has its own outlet and light, along with the room light. There's a bathroom with a shower in the rooms, and the overall setup made sense. They have this weird policy where you have to wear these slippers instead of your shoes inside, but you can wear those outside... Can't... More

I would not recommend anyone to stay at the DC Lofty Hostel because 1) there were BEDBUGS in the bed I was sleeping on (I did not notice this until the morning I was packing to leave to go home when I found 2 bedbugs on the bed), 2) the hostel is not located in a safe area in DC,... More

I stayed at DC Lofty in Oct 2012 with a friend for 5 nights. The living area with couches, a huge TV and computers (free for every guest) and the kitchen with a big stove, fridges and enough storage space were excellent. There was also a dishwasher, so you didn't have to do your own dishes after eating. The staff... More
