I stayed seven nights, there are no lockers to storage luggage only some small ones to store valuable goods. The place is really small, during the "breakfast"(just pancakes) sometimes there is no place to sit down. In the living room sometimes there is no place to sit down. TERRIBLE Wi-fi service. I strongly do not recommend this place.

Staff was nice, except owner not friendly and arrogant. Can't drink alcohol after 10pm. The room was okay, the bathrooms were gender separated, pretty clean in general. Breakfast only with small Pancakes, you get tired of it after 3 days. A little expensive for the price.

Duo Housing is the perfect hostel. We stayed for 2 nights, the housing is clean and well maintained and the amenities are good. The staff are the best I have encountered from any hostel I have stayed at, they are friendly, helpful and easy to get along with. We stayed 1 night in a 4 bed dorm and 1 night...

I've stayed in room with 12 beds; it's so full with beds that I didn't know where to leave my luggage. No plugs in for upper beds. As some people already wrote, at checking in I had a feeling the person wants to get rid of me asap. Nobody told me about breakfast. There was also no towels on the...

We (party of three)stayed four nights in a private room for four. The location is nice but otherwise we were not impressed. The place is probably okay choice if you're in your early twenties and like to party. We however found several issues disturbing: - You were forced to sign a paper that you had read the house rules. The...

We stayed in a 4 bed private room, of which was somewhat cool, as we had our own kitchen, T.V, sofa, bathroom. The facilities in the kitchen/leisure area were small but completely adequate, we were surprised when shown to our quarters, as these facilities were not mentioned in the advertisement online, so seemed like a bonus. Now, to the somewhat...

Everything is excellent. The location is perfect, you can WALK to every single place in Washington DC and I even walked from/to the train station (which is from where I arrived/left). The staff is friendly and always ready to help, the place is clean and very cool looking. Delicious pancakes and coffee/tea are served for breakfast, there are water fountains...

This hostel was incredibly clean and reasonably priced, with a constant supply of clean towels, a free pancake breakfast and very comfortable beds. The location is fantastic- central with restaurants and supermarkets near by, most major sites within walking distance and easy access to public transport. The atmosphere and the staff were amazing!!
