Me and my girlfriend had two nights in this great hostel in DC. In a great location, just 30 minutes walk to the Mall and other tourist sites, as well as being just a 15 minute walk from the unmissable Ben's Chilli Bowl, the staff were extremely friendly, the rooms were clean and there were good bathroom and shower facilities....

Myself and a friend stayed in this hostel for a week whilst on our visit to DC. We loved it! The staff were amazing - so friendly and welcoming. The hostel has a very nice homely vibe - felt through its lively lobby & delicious breakfast pancakes. Our room felt safe and secure and the bathroom facilities were great. Its... More

I was there for a day and enjoyed my stay. I ended up booking my go to chain hostel as a back up just in case I didn't like it, I wish I stayed! It's nestled in Shaw, a nice historic neighborhood away from anything too touristy. The hostel was comfortable like I was staying with a friend, nothing like... More

This was my first hostel here in the US. I've stayed at several hostels in other countries, but this is by far the nicest and cleanest one yet. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and there are plenty of showers and bathrooms. The kitchen is well kept and they even have additional refrigerators for added storage. The... More

I had made a booking of this hostel about 24 hours prior to my arrival. I had mentioned in the booking that my arrival was at 7 pm. When i arrived at the hostel they said they had given up my booking to someone else. They said they had written me an e-mail 5 hours prior to my arrival. However... More

I only stayed here for one night but it was everything the reviews promise. I especially enjoyed the feeling of walking on the wood-paneled and carpeted floor with our bare feet. And the fact that the carpets in the toilet are, surprisingly, dry in the morning. And that the dorm is a non-smoking place. And that there are vending machines... More

Ive been in some Hostels in Europe and this one was my first Hostel in US. First of all, Hostels in US are more expensive than those of Europe so i was expecting some quality jump... That didn't happen. The hostel sells itself as a clean please due to its no shoes policy... Thats far from reality. The entrance smells... More

First off, this is a hostel in a 'normal' house setting, so few power outlets depending on your place in the room and larger common rooms. It's situated in a residential area so the sights/bars are about a 20-25 min walk but that's still pretty close. The housing/beds/showers are fine and do the trick, there is a very cool and... More

I had very unhappy experience at Duo Hostel because of the manger’s attitude. If the guest forgot pass code to get in the door (or guest’s hands are full of stuff and it is not easy to find pass code in purse), the manger will have attitude towards the guest. The manger was very impatient towards guest after the guest... More
