Spent a week here as I was attending a conference nearby. First time in a hostel too, so didn't know what to expect. I was instantly made to feel welcome by the attentive staff. The no shoe policy is great, makes it feel that much more homely. Clean, cheap, great location and the staff foster a very friendly atmosphere!

The atmosphere is like nowhere else and the manager makes sure it remains this way. You feel like home with more fun. You have the amazing pancakes for breakfast and the amazing cook that comes along. It's easier to meet and to get along with the other people staying in the hostel if you wish too. Really my stay in...

Stayed here for a long weekend for the Science March. The place was very clean and the staff very friendly! There were a lot of social events planned by the staff that helped solo travellers like myself meet people and I can honestly say I've met some lifelong friends in the 4 short nights I was there. I've stayed in...

The staff here were really friendly and helpful. We only stayed for one night but they made us feel really welcome., other guests were lovely too. Breakfast was included which, freshly made pancakes (some choc chip and banana too) and they were pretty good. Bathrooms and dorms clean. Everything you need for travelling.

My best friend and I stayed here for 2 nights, first week of April. She wanted to book an AirBnB but we're so glad we went to the hostel instead. We had an amazing time, met some cool people, exchanged notes about the city, went out a couple times too! The place is pretty big and well-maintained. Staff is really...

I had such a great time at Duo Housing. It's a comfortable hostel located about a twenty minute walk from the national mall and round the corner from the nearest metro station. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, it's a great place to make new friends. Every morning you get amazing chocolate chip pancakes made for you. The beds...

I wouldn't recommend it at all. Choose somewhere else down the road and pay the extra. its not very organised and theres no locks on the doors. It's a walk away from everywhere but not too bad. There are rats outside too.

This hostel is old school with, youth who do a good job servicing the people. Showers need small repairs and told that new toilets happening soon. But this is a must place for a hostel in DC. Welcome fun and nice.

Tried to book online, it failed as it was too late in the day. Called and someone said they had room in a 12 bed, that they would take my credit card info over the phone and book my stay on hostels.com for me. Red flag. I said no thanks, and booked on tripadvisor on my phone. this was all...
