The house residents work every day and will be out of your way most of the time. But I look forward to meeting you, sharing travel stories and hearing about where you are from and what you are looking to experience while you are in DC.

Latest Review

" The room was good. Doesn't have air condition so for me was very hot as in the bathroom too, more at this time when Washington was super hot. People in the house was super nice. It is a regular house and you have a room upstairs. In my opinion, it's a little far from the center of Washington, so you need to take a Uber or Lift or rent a car. The zone is so so, so you can't be walking around on the neighborhood. Either way, I like it and I recommend. The price is good. "
