Really recommended by us because of the friendly and cosy atmosphere. IGH is run by Mennonite volunteers but you don’t notice that except from a little morning prayer before breakfast. In the basement : a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave and dishes, but no stove – some chairs and a TV set (no TV in the rooms) – ping pong table – ironing board – for a small charge : snacks and internet. Everyday at 9 PM super cosy “evening tea” : guests and volunteers exchange stories. Our room type : 2 single beds and 1 play pen (with a small surcharge) – but still a very cheap stay in DC. Shared bathrooms, but very clean. Breakfast : simple but very good. At 8 AM. Orange juice, homemade muffins (!), toasts, cornflakes, milk, coffee, tea. Places tot eat nearby : none. Parking space : 3 place in the back without extra charge. More then enough though. Most guests come without cars. Public transportation every 10 minutes nearby on 16th street and 14th street.
