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.

As headline says, it's a nice place to stay. Didn't like their policy of no checking in until 3 PM at all though. I arrived in DC early morning dead tired, and when I got to the hostel at around 10 AM, I was politely told to vacate the premises until 3 or later. Walked around the various sights in...

Let me begin by saying how great the staff members are. Incredibly helpful and friendly, I can see why people love to hang back by the spacious lounge and outdoor areas, and chat until the wee hours in the cold winter morning. They're also capable of making great piklets (small pancakes). That alone is worthy of five stars. Of course,...

While small, rooms were tidy and clean. Was nice and warm which was just as well considering the weather! Very fast wifi! And a convenient grocery store nearby. Only a five minute walk to green/yellow line station and a couple of stops to the museums!

I backpacked through North America and Europe for 6 months and after all that (and many many hostels) I can honestly say this was one of the best hostels i stayed in. I arrived on their doorstep in tears at 8pm with no reservation having had the day from hell, the staff brought me straight in, found me a bed...
