It's not a hostel but a private house. Even though it appears very safe, it would have been better if it was possible to lock the door to the room. It's also quite far away from the metro (15 min walk).

We stayed at Valida's place for 4 nights while we were visiting DC. The room was spacious and clean, and connected to a private kitchen and bathroom. We also had access to a washing machine and tumble-dryer, which was very handy! The location was convenient - about 40-50 minutes to the National Mall by bus or by metro. Valida was a very accommodating host and we would certainly stay again if in the area.

This is a private house -- we had a private entrance, but it needs to be improved. It was dark and messy with odd storage. We didn't know about locking the door to the rest of the house, so for most of our stay it felt "open to all". The room is large and clean, laundry and TV and a long, but easy walk, from the subway (or accessible by bus). You MUST call first to check in. If you pay with credit the owner charges a 3% fee, so take cash. A nice neighborhood and nice people. Enjoy your stay

Very nice place to stay! Had no issues, she was very helpful and flexible on arrival times. Took about 30 minutes to get into downtown DC, but the metro is only a 13 minute walk from the house so it was not bad at all.

Ms. Walker was super nice. It was wonderful having our own private room downstairs--it even had a private kitchenette! There's a metro and a bus stop close by so even though you're not in the middle of all the DC action it's easy to get there. Truly enjoyed our stay here!

The place is technically more of an AirBnB type of place (room in someone's house), but the host was lovely, friendly and very helpful. Not much happening in the area, but very short Metro ride into the main city. GREAT value for money

Large double-bedded furnished room with ensuite shower in basement of private house with own fridge and microwave. Very frequent buses or ten minutes walk to Fort Totten Station which is on the red, yellow and green Metro lines providing excellent access to city centre in 15 minutes. Valida was very accommodating and friendly - she even picked us up on first arrival at Fort Totten Station. A good budget alternative to sky-high accommodation costs in central DC if you don't mind travelling.
