The hostel was amazing. Myself and 3 friends visited in March, we were welcomed so warmly to the hostel upon our arrival and even though we did arrive relatively early we were provided with somewhere to leave our bags while we went out to get some lunch and explore the city. We arrived on a Sunday so we were lucky... More

Had the best time! Most amazing staff! Pancakes in the morning ( they actually make them) BBQ every Sunday! Chicken, burgers, sausages, hot dogs, chips, Ice cream...they really take care of you and it's all free! I really felt like home and seriously, if you are in DC Duo Housing is the place to stay! No surprise it was voted... More

Its understandable why Duo Housing has won so many awards. The staff are very friendly and efficient and helpful. The rooms are clean there is free breakfast and the wifi is available through out the the building and is quick. There is a strictly enforced policy of no drinking on premises after 22h00. The staff organises outings so that people... More

Good: Very friendly Atomosphere, All the guests were nice and open-minded. Great Value Bad: Bathroom was small and crowded. Not very quite. Beds are old. No waching machine in hostel. (there is a lundry shop 1 block away but it was quite sketchy and very expensive)

I stayed in this hostel for three nights and they were just great! Awesome staff, awesome atmosphere, awesome people! I liked the no-shoe policy because it gave the hostel such a homely touch. The chillout areas were pretty nice and a good way to talk to other travellers which is particularly enjoyable when you are travelling alone. They serve free... More

I had a pleasant and enjoyable stay at this small-ish hostel. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere was pretty good. The rooms are pretty basic but adequate. The hostel has a no shoes policy and a lot of rules (I would consider most of them reasonable), which you have to agree to before you can stay there. There... More

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The free pancakes for breakfast were great as was the free rooftop BBQ on Sundays. Its about a 20min walk down to centre. About 30min walk to Adams Morgan - for a young traveller this is a funky / interesting place to visit.

I spent three nights at Duo Housing with my friends in late January 2014. It was a little bit tricky to find at first but we made it eventually. It is located just next to a small supermarket and further down on the block you can find a liquor store. If that store has closed there's another one on M... More

I travelled with a group of 8 people (Kiwi, Brits, and Americans) in August 2013. Upon arrival we were greeted by the welcoming receptionist and their dog Popeye- both were very friendly! The only downside to the dog being there is that there is no mention of him on their website (as reviewers have stated before). I personally had no... More

I stayed in a hotel for three days avoiding this hostel thanks to the reviews I read, but then I took the risk and realized that I should have just stayed in this hostel the whole time I was in DC. To find a hostel with clean, hot showers with towels provided is a miracle find. Most hostels never have... More
