    Cozy place! Not a bad distance from your typical Washington, DC stuff. Very friendly atmosphere. Security was awesome with keypad entry to the hostel and then another keypad to get into your individual room. The staff were particularly friendly!

    I was in DC for my daughter’s graduation. Five schools conduct graduation ceremonies on this weekend in May and, consequently, all the prices for lodging skyrocket. Luckily, I’m a camper and adventure traveler and staying in hostels is not foreign to me. This place saved me money and was truly a nice place to lay my head. The staff was super friendly, genuine and helpful. They immediately convinced me I made the right choice. I’ll probably stay there again for her master’s ceremony in two years

    Stayed here Memorial Day weekend because I needed a centrally-located spot overnight- the location is great; it's about ten minutes from the Metro in a cute mostly-residential neighborhood, and about a mile walk from Dupont Circle. The air conditioning was out for my stay, which is less than ideal in D.C. in May. Also, this is a converted townhouse, so the only way to access the office and the rooms is by stairs- wasn't an issue for me, but if you have physical limitations this might not be best

    Very Good

    You get what you pay for! It wasn’t the cleanest of places but definitely not overly dirty. The facilities were good - kitchen, free coffee / pancake mix if you wanted it, tv’s with netflix, free wifi etc. The location is good, about 20 mins walk from attractions. A man walked into our room (female only room) on the second morning looking for someone. We’re not sure how he got in the room which freaked us out abit but other than that, was overall good - basic but good.

    The worst of DC Lofty is the cleanliness: there were mice in the kitchen and in the all hostel! Some of the staff were really nice and carefully but, some others not.

    Great location. The hostel needs a deep clean and exterminator. Put all food in the refrigerator (not kitchen shelves) or it will be eaten by mice. The staff is nice. It would be helpful to clearly mark trash vs. recycling, and to provide dish towels. Some guests left messes.

    Booked a twin private, arrived and there was a fan (useful for the 34c heat). Went out for the afternoon, returned to find the fan removed and my suitcase having been removed and replaced under the bed. Staff were rude and unhelpful. Shared toilet had no handle, had to be flushed by taking the cistern lid off. Not what I’d expect for the price of a private twin. Pretty poor all round.

    The bedroom was room #9 on the second floor and it was scorching hot and me and the other guests couldn’t sleep all night. Just tossed and turned. The owner must be really cheap to not turn air conditioner on high on a hot summer night.
