This was my first hostel here in the US. I've stayed at several hostels in other countries, but this is by far the nicest and cleanest one yet. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and there are plenty of showers and bathrooms. The kitchen is well kept and they even have additional refrigerators for added storage. The...

I had made a booking of this hostel about 24 hours prior to my arrival. I had mentioned in the booking that my arrival was at 7 pm. When i arrived at the hostel they said they had given up my booking to someone else. They said they had written me an e-mail 5 hours prior to my arrival. However...

I only stayed here for one night but it was everything the reviews promise. I especially enjoyed the feeling of walking on the wood-paneled and carpeted floor with our bare feet. And the fact that the carpets in the toilet are, surprisingly, dry in the morning. And that the dorm is a non-smoking place. And that there are vending machines...

Ive been in some Hostels in Europe and this one was my first Hostel in US. First of all, Hostels in US are more expensive than those of Europe so i was expecting some quality jump... That didn't happen. The hostel sells itself as a clean please due to its no shoes policy... Thats far from reality. The entrance smells...

First off, this is a hostel in a 'normal' house setting, so few power outlets depending on your place in the room and larger common rooms. It's situated in a residential area so the sights/bars are about a 20-25 min walk but that's still pretty close. The housing/beds/showers are fine and do the trick, there is a very cool and...

I had very unhappy experience at Duo Hostel because of the manger’s attitude. If the guest forgot pass code to get in the door (or guest’s hands are full of stuff and it is not easy to find pass code in purse), the manger will have attitude towards the guest. The manger was very impatient towards guest after the guest...

We walked into this place at around 10:30 pm on a weekday. The place is centrally situated with just a small walk away from white house. The owner was very friendly and took us through the facility explaining all the amenities (bath rooms, kitchen, wifi among other things) before taking us to our room. The rooms are mixed dorm and...

My partner and myself stayed in this hostel for a week and enjoyed our stay overall. It's nice and local to the city centre, museums and monuments, and eateries. Our stay included a free breakfast which only consisted of chocolate chip pancakes that were made fresh by the staff, and were tasty! The only downside I would have to say...

I've lived and visited most of the continents around the world. I presently live in Medellin Colombia where I have a few friends who run hostels. I can safely say they ALL aspire to be as good as Duo Housing. The staff is more responsive than any 5 star hotel could wish for; the place is sparkling clean, well-managed and...

Duo housing is a nice hostel in a good area of Washington DC. It's clean and comfortable, with good bathroom facilities. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. Score would be higher but it's very expensive for a hostel.
