There aren't too many places I visit where I feel at home. That's no fault of the proprietor as such establishments are typically hotels where guests come and go. I visited the International Guest House in January 2015 and was personally greeted by the volunteer on duty that evening. I was personally escorted to my room after being given a... More

My 13 y.o. daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights while we visited DC. The hosts are very welcoming and made our stay peaceful and comfortable. We really enjoyed the evening tea time and morning breakfast where we met other travellers from around the globe. Having this worldy experience was a terrific bonus to our educational visit to DC....

In the morning we got a good breakfast which was included in the prize. In the evenings there was tea and cookies (home made), it was a really good way to sit down and... More

A warm, wonderful guest home in a safe and convenient neighborhood. Off-street parking is available. This is more like a hostel than your typical B & B. There is a communal bathroom for men and for women, a curfew of 11 pm (which is flexible), no food allowed in rooms, etc. Nonetheless, the International Guest House is a delightful experience....

An excellent home-away-from-home atmosphere with salt-of-the-earth people taking care of your every need. Icing on the cake: it's a perfect location; easy to hop on a train or a bus and get anywhere in DC within a half hour! Tell them Jacki sent you!

A Quiet Respite in Bustling DC.....A home away from home, meeting people from all over the world, the staff, cleanliness and the evening music and tea are just a few noteworthy comments. There is a great park nearby and bus transportation to downtown DC. Highly recommend.

I spent the last weekend at the International Guest house and had a blessed time. Every night the host ring the bell and you have the opportunity to chat with the other guest but of course you are not supposed to do it. Instead of sitting in the living room you could've gone downstairs to hang out in the well-appointed... More

I stayed at the IGH for two weeks when I first moved in to DC. At first I was nervous about sharing a room with strangers, because I had never stayed at a hostel before. In the end, the two girls I shared my room with became my good friends. The hosts at the guest house make every effort to... More

I stayed here with my 10 year old son who was so hesitant to stay somewhere other than a hotel. I convinced him to give it a go and the night before we left he was so upset that our visit was coming to an end. Every single staff member was kind, caring and welcomed us like family. There is...
