“Charming cottage in DC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2010

Aunt Beas is a charming little home in a neighbourhood not too far from the centre of DC (about 4 mins walk to the subway & then only a few stops from Union Station). The owner Gerald is very friendly & approachable & cooks a yummy, healthy breakfast for you each morning (which after a month of fried food, was perfect for us!) We found the hostel (really more like a b&b) to be very quiet, clean & adequate, we will def reccommend to friends & would stay again! Thanks for a lovely stay!

We stayed at Aunt Bea’s for 6 nights and can’t recommend it highly enough! It’s comfy, clean, cozy and charming and feels just like a home away from home. Gerald’s hospitality is second-to-none: his tips on where to go and what to do in DC are great and the breakfasts he cooks up are incredibly tasty, healthy and filling. Located an easy 5 minute walk from the Brookland-CUA Metro station and within a little neighbourhood shopping area, you definitely won’t be disappointed staying here. Thanks Gerald, we loved our stay and we’ll miss your excellent breakfasts and morning chats! Hugh & Stephanie

We booked this B&B through hostels.com and chose it based on its cost and location. We had originally been looking for a hotel in downtown and discovered that they were all really expensive so we headed to hostels.com.

This B&B is located 5 minutes or so walking distance from the Brookland CUA Metro Station. The station is on the red line, which is really convenient, as all the major sights are located on red line line stops. The Metro also goes to the airport, which saved us a lot of time and money when it was time to leave.

We loved this B&B! The location was great and the host and owner, Gerald, was fantastic! He was so nice and friendly and was always happy to provide advice on the sights. He also provided us a great breakfast every morning that was quite healthy consisted of fruit, yoghurt, eggs, turkey bacon, juice and coffee! The beds were really comfy and the room and bathroom were clean. We also had nice fluffy towels! Gerald also provided bottled water, which was great. Gerald was also happy for us to use his wi-fi for free.

We booked this B&B quite close to the date and the room we wanted wasn't available for all 3 nights we wanted, so we booked a different room for the third night. Gerald was very accommodating and helped us move rooms on the last day. The first room we stayed in was the deluxe twin private and the second was the basic double bed. For an extra $10 or so I would recommend staying in the deluxe twin private. The basic double bed was still lovely, but the deluxe room was a lot larger and had a little fridge.

The host was most pleasant & accommodating; we had a fascinating chat over breakfast. My room was clean and very charming, with the bathroom down the hall. I loved being a few minutes' walk from the Metro (Brookland stop), and my visit to the Franciscan Monastery (and beautiful gardens) nearby was richly rewarding. Breakfast was perfect: fresh fruit, muffins, eggs and yogurt. The house is located on a mixed residential - commercial block of 12th Street but it was very peaceful. I would not hesitate to return again.

Aunt Bea's White House is a cosy small B&B with friendly staff. The room was very cute, with comfortable beds, TV and internet. Shared bathroom. It was very clean and neat. Breakfast was fine. Very close to the metro station. Quiet during the night. Why pay much more downtown?
