I stayed there for 2 nights and cut my stay short because I got devoured by bed bugs. After a quick search on the internet I can see many people have had the same problem here: http://bedbugregistry.com/location/DC/20001-4219/Washington/1333-11th-St-Nw I spoke to a staff member and he admitted they have problems and they spray for them every 2 days.

We were pleasently surprised when we arrived at DC Lofty. As it was a hostel, we were apprehensive. However, the hostel was very clean and modern and great value for money. The location was not the best, as it was a 10-15 minute walk to the Union Metro station. As we were two girls, we did not feel too safe... More
