A lot of the people who stay there have really interesting stories to tell and come from a variety of backgrounds. However, I noticed frequent comment that appeared to be generalizations about people from other countries coming from staff and the guests. Among the staff, there is a variety of personalities, although well-trained in ""security"" and fast talking they lack a sense of sincerity and hospitality. Side note: I love drifters.

Lovely staff - shout out to Pedro for the pancakes, directions and suggestions, and to az for taking us out dancing! The rooms are basic, wouldn't recommend the basement 12 bed but the rooms upstairs are fine. Not enough powerpoints but good kitchen, common areas etc. The room was pretty cold in the morning, but fine during the night!

Staff were lovely. Eric, the girl and 2 guys making the pancakes in the morning and much more no doubt (didn't get their names) were great. Location was good. Great introduction to the place, had a good time in Washington. Thanks guys, all the best.

My stay at Duo Housing was perfect. The check-in after midnight was absolutely no problem. For breakfast they made some delicious pancakes with chocolate and the staff was really friendly as well. They provide everything you expect from a good hostel. I would definitely stay there again.

Excellent quality and value for money - especially the free dinner on Sunday and pancake breakfasts. Staff are really friendly, place is clean and in a very well situated area. Would definitely recommend again!

I stayed in Duo for 4 nights and I loved it. The staff( are friendly and helpful, you can cook in the common kitchen and the grocery store is literally right next to the hostel. So I was able to save a lot of money. They also have a Sunday Dinner, which is free, and it's a great chance to get to know other backpackers/travelers. Pedro Duran is very informed about the city. Thanks Pedro!

The staff here (especially Pedro) are amazing!! I had a great time staying at Duo Housing DC. It was relatively close to the museums and monuments as well as to good places to go out for food and drinks. The staff gave good recommendations on where to go and little tips to make my trip better. The hostel was laid-back and relaxed, and I met many fun people from all over the world.

Great overall. But they have crammed too many beds in each dorm. Meaning everyone's bags are all over the place.

Had the pleasure of staying at Duo Housing DC for 5 nights and it really is a home away from home. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and the hostel in general has a really relaxed atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend this hostel to other travelers. The fact I was travelling by myself also did not matter as it was easy to meet others at the hostel due to the way the guys run the hostel.

Big difference depending on which room you're in: the rooms on the second floor are cozy and well-lit, but downstairs rooms are dark, damp, and drafty. Shared bathroom is VERY clean, with attention to details like shelves and hairdryers. Convenient to grocery, dining, and metro. Staff are generally very helpful, although you occasionally get the impression that you're bringing the frat party down with your questions.

Great hostel. The only thing I would say, it could have some policies about the lights on the rooms and the staffs using the chicken for long time. Besides that, really awesome.

Had a good experience at the Duo Hostel, upon arrival i was well oriented in what to do and not to do, very good policy of taking out our shoes, that keep the place clean, easy access to the subway line and walk distance to the main attraction and museums, white house, shopping and markets. very relax place.

Great place to stay, staff are awesome as they hang out with you in the common area. They aren't just nameless reception people. Would stay again for sure.
