From first impressions this hostel feels clinical and dreary. We arrived here after a long journey and were told that our entire reservation had been canceled, fortuantly however the hostile had three beds available so where able to accommodate us, (even though we already had made a confirmed reservation online). Unfortunately this meant that my group had to be split... More

This place was a real treat! I am very happy to have chosen Duo Housing; it's convieniently located just above K ST and M ST, and not too far from U street. There is a wonderful Latin restaurant a couple blocks down named El Rinconcito that is amzing! There is also a small Chinese food spot a couple blocks up... More

I guess people like a tight ship these days but this place was a little too tight for me. Too many rules and regulations. Too sterile. Staff was nice but too buddy-buddy. I don't need a high-five because I remembered to bring my linens down, ugh. Common room on upper floor was too small. It was always a challenge to... More

I stayed at this place twice, both times for 3 nights. The hostel is a perfect place for staying either in a group or on your own. There always hang out people around so it`s easy to chill. They provide towels and hair dryers which I really appreciated. Free pancakes in the morning make your visit even better. The hostel... More

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
