    My reservation was only for one night, and I had no intentions of doing anything other than sleeping in this hostel after a night out. Check-in was easy enough, they even let us check-in 3 hours early. The problems started when I tried to take...More

    thank you for your review! We have checked the shower in the room you've stayed in, and it is a low flow water head, but we think that's plenty comfortable for most people. There are 13 showers all together, with some outside of the rooms...More

    That AC situation was ridiculous. DC was facing 100+ heat for a few days, and of course, that's the perfect time, for any such issues. One out of three units could not handle the heat wave, and needed to be serviced. We had it fixed...More

    This was by far one of the worst experiences I've ever had traveling. The staff was rude, the sheets smelled funny and probably hadn't been cleaned, and the management had bad attitudes about everything. Don't stay here. I stayed here for 2 days and said...More

    It is indeed true that ANYONE can leave a review on trip advisor, and many other sites for that matter. This person never stayed with us, but was unhappy that we're closed at 1AM - when this person apparently arrived - and has been leaving...More

    Hi AngelesDaniela, when I stayed at DC Lofty I paid a portion with cash and another with credit card. Thus, I think you should be able to do so. Give them a call anyway, the staff is very friendly. Good luck.
