Good friendly hostel that's close to union station, which is very handy for metro lines cos everything is a bit of a hike to get to. Plenty of restaurants around so you don't have to stay in downtown where it's pricey. Hostel itself is a little close for comfort, rooms have 6 beds in and they're pretty close to each other, also the wifi sucked if you were anywhere but the lounge. Not sure about having just a door code to get in to the whole building either, they've got cameras but still risky!

Staff were incredible and always happy to help. Liked the no shoe rule! Location was fantastic, near union station and short walk to memorials. Free beer always good!

This hostel is very cool. The common room is relaxing with plenty to do. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and relax. Chad is awesome and fun to hang with. Savino is a blast to hang with and very entertaining. There are a lot of rules that seem a little overzealous here and there but overall a great place to stay and great stay!

Everything was just fine. The only things to mention are the difficult wifi connection in the rooms and the amount of bathrooms. Nevertheless, we had a great stay and can highly recommend the DC House!

Its summer in DC, so its hot at night - problem is that the ACs are fairly old and quite noisy ie hard to go to sleep with the racket - thus turn them off and sweat...... Also the washing machine and dryer were broken and the plan is not to repair them.

More public space (sofas, tables etc) will be appreciated.

A superb hostel for a much younger crowd, Lovely helpful staff, excellent security, high level of cleanliness however , some of the rules regarding "quiet hours" and the two free thimbles of beer felt quite oppressive.

After having walked from the bus terminal to the hostel, while we were trying to opening the door with our laggard still in our hands, someone opened the door for us from the inside. With a little expression of sour price I his face, he asked "are you checking in?", our answer of course was "yes!!", then he replayed " welcome home", and you know what? He mean it. The rooms are really comfortable, everything is clean all the time, and the staff is always ready to help. This guys are the best.

There needs to be a toilet without a shower included on the second or third floor. Waiting times are not practical for the large number of beds on each floor.

Boring, boring, boring. Clean, quite, safe place to sleep. It's like a convent up in here. Not even a whisper after 10pm or before 10am. Zero atmosphere. If you want peace and quite, this is your place. If you want to socialize, not so much. Bar crawl was pitiful.

I am impressed by the tidy environment in this hostel. Unlike other hostels, I saw staff clean the environment all the time. Also, they have rules for quiet time and food. This is very thoughtful, especially for those staying Ina 12-bed room.

A really confortable big sofa in the common place and it's a nice place to meet people. It's close to the bus and train station and not so far from capitole. A bit hot in the room during the night.

A cute little hostel the atmosphere is very personal and friendly the staff are very nice and get to know you. Good facilities the only issue was that the toilets and showers are in a cubicle together so when you need to go in the morning it can be a struggle because everyone is showering and the only toilet without a shower is in the kitchen which was not close to my dorm. It's about a 20 minute walk from the capital building but a very short walk from union station and a good supermarket near.
