I have only ever stayed in one other hostel and that was in London, so I didn't really know what to expect but from the moment i walked in the door I didn't want to leave. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful professional. Unlimited movies and entertainment, a short and easy 10 minute walk to the city centre and pancakes... More

I found this to be a nice place to stay. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and slept very well all 4 nights. I found the bed comfortable and room quiet. Sometimes a bit of a wait for the bathroom, but not an issue. Hostel did a BBQ night and that worked out to 2 meals from leftovers.... More

I've been in this hotel just for one night, in twelve-beds dorm. The hostel is well located, pretty closer to The white house. The room was so dirty with little bugs, however bathroom and common area were clean and comfy. I think it's definitively overpriced.

There is a summary at the end if you don't want to read all of this. First of all, I had found another hostel in the area (I think it was DC Lofty) for the same price, but for a 5 person room instead of 12! Clearly they were taking advantage of the high demand and charging very high prices.... More

The staff were friendly and the bathrooms clean, but the sleeping room was disgusting. There was a drunken very smelly (at least a week without a shower) person in the room snoring quite loudly. It was the worst hostel experience I have had because of that. I can't completely fault them for it, but they need to ensure the guests... More

I had my worst experience in hostels with Duo Housing. I made a reservation for 3 nights, starting at March 19, checking-out March 22 until 11am. Due to the fact that I arrived one day later, they changed my reservation, starting at March 20 and checking-out at the same time. Saturday morning (3/21) I left the Hostel to visit the... More

The staff are very helpful and and friendly and it has a really homey atmosphere. Like the type where you want to snuggle up with your book on the couch and drink a hot chocolate in the top floor living room. Sadly though I have given my low rating because it isn't very clean and they need to hire a... More

I put average because the next level is very good while my personal rating would be good . After the fiasco of my precedent review , I checked at Duo Housing , the other option would \have been the HI hostel but they had no elevator ... Pro : great location ( few blocks from Chinatown and Pennsylvania avenue) friendly... More

We enjoyed our one night at this great Hostel. We talked a lot with the staff and had a good time. They were all so friendly! I wish we could have stayed for more nights! Keep it up :-) Not much more to say. It's more fun than staying at a hotel that's for sure. - Jens&Jens
