I wasn't staying in Hostels for long time. I chose Duo cause of good reviews and affordable prices. Took it because of great location according to Washington main attractions. Came here just for one night to hang out around the city and wasn't dissapointed. Great well informed stuff who made me feel this stay even more like at home. Great... More

This hostel is perfect if you're a young traveler like me who is looking to meet people and have a sociable time. All the communal areas are fairly cozy which means that you have to talk and interact with others; the only people that weren't getting to know the others were the older residents (35+). The beds are comfortable and... More

This hostel met all my expectations of what a hostel should be and provide. There was an ok social area, there was some food (just pancakes) provided in the mornings, there was a bed and air conditioning, wifi etcThe wifi could have had better connectivity throughout the hostel, this needs to be fixed. Some of the rules were a bit... More

Free breakfast was great! Showers didn't look very clean though, hostel should pay more attention to this. Also saw some bugs in the hallways. But great value! Just note that their "luggage storage room" is just a open spot in the hallway, with a camera. Was not a problem for me, but might be for some people. I would stay... More

Despite many of the grumbles about some of the more strict rules they inforce at the hostel, I would have to say for the value for money, friendlyness and condition of the place it's really worth it. And really the only rule being: No Drinking Booze after 10pm-which considering many hostels don't even allow drinking it's pretty good. The location... More

Duo Housing has the nicest staff! I felt like I was staying at a friend's house. Freshly made pancakes, free WiFi, conveniently located near Mt. Vernon Station. Couldn't ask for more at such a reasonable price.
