  • I was there only for one night, and I was my first experience staying in a hostel in many years. I was very glad to find out that the location was near perfect, the staff was extremely kind and helpful, and they really made me feel comfortable. I would definitely come back!

  • The plugs for charging is not enough. There are 8 of them but only 2 work and those which don't work are hard to reach like you have to go under the bed to use it and realise that those cant be use. (Btw why there 8 plugs in 10 mix dorm room? I dont get it) please do something!

  • I am a teacher with three kids and went to DC for a teaching seminar for 7 days. I had a budget and decided to stay in the hostel. I was very nervous at first because it has been awhile since I have been in a hostel. I remember them being loud and dirty. This was not the case with DUO. It was very clean, never had to wait for a shower or bathroom and it was quiet. I was in the 12 bed dorm and it was quiet. There was a nice roof top and the bbq was nice they hosted on Sunday. 4 stars!

  • Everything about the stay was amazing. We got a friendly tour from the staff when we arrived and I was amazed to see how clean everything was! The FREE pancake breakfast and coffee were an amazing start to our day. We met so many amazingly friendly 20- and 30-somethings, it was perfect! It was truly an amazing place to meet people and explore DC with them. I never felt unsafe or dirty in Duo Housing. The showers were cleaner and nicer than any hotel I've ever stayed at!! Amazing place to stay!

  • This was my first time staying at a hostel, so I was a bit nervous. However, it was such an awesome experience. All of the guests and staff were so friendly, it was way more enjoyable than staying in a hotel. I felt safe, and I felt as if the place was very clean. They offered free pancakes every morning, which is so above and beyond based on the price I was paying. I would definitely stay again, and will recommend Duo Housing for sure.

  • Quality of stay is dependant on assigned room. Was unlucky in being assigned a bunk on the third floor of the secondary house. Which meant getting a WiFi signal to send messages home entailed sitting on the stairs of the second floor or descend all three flights of stairs. The third floor also had a blackout and when I asked staff for help the guy finished my sentence so it must be common. Hostel was very clean and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, excellent location, helpful staff, great atmosphere

  • Everything was great, the neighborhood can be a bit dicey at night otherwise I would recommend it for the value, staff, and the lobby lounge is great, cable dvds, internet, free WiFi. A+.
