Well as for the location it's pretty much 10-15 minutes from Washington malls .. Staff are good in general.. And that's it.. The place is shaking and expected to be falling any time soon .. Showers in the first floor are ridiculously filthy and coooooooold you have to look for hot showers in the forth floor.. Price are too much for this kind of place..

Excellent location. Clean and very cheap. The staff is very kind, except for one girl who has bad attitude. However, the other people were very nice. Definitely good place.

A nice group of people were also traveling through. I felt safe there, even though the approach to the Hostel is dark with few walkers around.

Improve your security by locking away bags before check in - I had items stolen from my bag. Also lockers would be good.

The ceiling is falling apart. It was so cold in the building. No activities organized by the staff. Music so loud at the same time we watched TV. No water pressure when it's time to have a shower

we just stayed two nights, but the shared bathroom hasn't get cleaned in this time, so it was quite dirty. Everything is funktional but without atmosphere. Location is ok, but you can do a lot better in D.C. for the money we payed.

I enjoyed my stay. Particularly, much thanks to Lex and Jamar.; They were very kind and engaging. There was not a time were they didn't ask me how my stay was and whether there was anything that I needed. I can't say enough about their thoughtfulness; it was much appreciated. Ms. Cherry L. Turner

DC Lofty is wonderful! I travel for my work and it is a pleasure to stay here. The staff is very helpful and accommodating , which is a great burden of relief. When you travel a lot. all you really want is for somebody to be kind to you, and that's what I love most about DC Lofty staff. I will recommend DC Lofty to all of my colleagues and friends. Thank you DC Lofty. Hope you are blessed with growth, growth, growth! Kind regards, Ms. Cherry L. Turner

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were awesome as were the other guests, the facilities are amazing. Only being a few minutes from the yellow/ green line made getting into Washington DC very easy, and the neighbourhood itself was rather beautiful My only minor gripe with this hostel was the layout of my room, the bed I was in felt a little jammed in rather than planned out. A second very minor issue was the lack of breakfast options. Overall though I'd highly recommend this hostel

Only thing letting this place down is the shower pressure.

I am not a 20 something backpacker therefore didn't use the kitchen and lounge and social facilities, rather just needed an inexpensive room and bathroom in the city center. The main toilet had no toilet paper. The water pressure to the shower on the top floor was terrible and you needed to run the tap outside of the shower to get anything. And there were no mirrors in rooms, only a small one in the bathroom and the light was blown. For $70 a night this is very poor value.
