This hostel is fairly close to the landmarks however it is a fair walk. The kitchen is tiny and there was 6 of us so we were unable to cook for ourselves in the hostel. The room was very cramped and there were very few sockets in the room. The decor was dated. They do have a nice roof terrace... More

I loved staying at Duo Housing. It is centrally located and most of the staff is friendly and helpful (Unfortunately, the guy who checked me in wasn't that friendly and didn't help me carry my luggage so I had to make two trips). THey organize a barbeque sundaynights and have free pancakes breakfast, both are very nice. THe downside of... More

Really nice Hostel! Pretty cozy... It was my first time sharing a room with other people and I can't complain --I shared with 11 travelers!! You have spacious-drawers in the room (enough to put you laptop, clothes, personal items and more) You do need a lock though. I recommend you to bring more than a couple with you if you... More

The place is very nice, the staff are very friendly, enough clean. It's near the subway and there are a lot of cheap taxi. The neighbourhood is very quiet and not far there are a lot of club and pub for the night. It's a great opportunity for meet people from all world and enjoy your time with them

Stayed in DC for 3 days, and this place had everything we could ask for. Pancakes for breakfast, events, location, and amazing staff+guests. Met another Danish guy, who we went to see all the sites and museums with, and can honestly say that his place attracts great people.

Although the location was ok, the hostel itself was one of the worst I've ever been to. First of all, 12 people shared one bathroom. Imagine the chaos in the morning when you have to go or take shower. Second, the room that I was in (4 people shared dorm) did not have a wall above the door. Hence, you... More

Easy to get to. I spent U$12 to get there from Union Station, but you can also walk+take the bus (just take the Red Circulator). Place was very clean and organized. Mind the rules. The rooms, bathrooms and sheets were clean and smelled good, rooms were big enough , with new mattresses and "no squeaks" bunk beds. Make sure you... More

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
