  • All in all, a very nice place. Extremely convenient, very friendly staff, good soundproofing, clean, and generally courteous and quiet roommates. Needs a little fixing up: I innocently tried to open a window, and it crashed down: no counterweights at all. The night staff person was very competent at restoring it, but really.....

  • Thought it was a bit strange having a bank window kind of arrangement for when you are checking in, and found signing off on house rules a bit overkill, HOWEVER staff were lovely and friendly and even carried my bag to my room for me. Recommended good restaurant and walking routes also. Thanks!

  • Duo Housing DC has made some upgrades and renovations (i.e. new beds, flooring, etc.) since I last stayed at their facility making a good environment even better. However, the thing that attracted me to Duo Housing DC – the cost – is still about the same. Location, quality of service, friendly employees, comfort, cleanliness, and of course PRICE make Duo Housing DC the best hostel in Washington, DC – PERIOD! I recommend highly, you won’t be disappointed.

  • I was incredibly impressed by my experience at DUO Housing, the staff was exceedingly friendly and cordial, the hostel itself feels very welcoming, and the overall atmosphere made my entire group feel at home. We were also very impressed by the focus on international awareness, with the map of all the places peoples are from, the money posted on the wall, and the pancakes in the morning were a really nice touch. This is easily the best experience I have ever had with a Hostel in the United State
