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

This hostel is a great party hostel- the people working there are super friendly and take guests out nearly every night and they know some great spots to go to. The hostel itself is very basic, bunk beds, which are comfortable enough and enough showers that work (a few that don't). The kitchen is well equipped and the communal areas... More

Positive: really friendly staff, nice crowd. I was travelling alone and instantly met others. The staff are good at creating such an atmosphere. Good Location. Negative: well, it's a typical non-HI hostel, rather simple. Dorm Room had no window. Their Breakfast pancakes are not my idea of breKfast... I still went though for the Company. I would stay again if... More

IN fact the hostel it is an real style house located 15 minute walking by the With House witht he tv room, the chitcken and a beautiful terrace. The rooms are really... More

The place is cheap, and by cheap I mean at least 4x cheaper than a cheap hotel according to the standard in the area. Hence, one cannot have high expectations. Wi-fi works. There are a few plugs out and about to charge your electronics. Bed linens are clean but old, mines had a few holes and stains. There are lockers,... More
