We're located just 5 minutes to the US Capitol, The Library of Congress, The Washington Navy Yard and many more nearby attractions.

Check out what makes Duo Nomad the #1 choice for students, travelers, and interns!

Duo Nomad is designed to encourage interaction among our guests as much as possible. Our rooms are shared, as are the bathroom facilities, kitchens, and living rooms.

    This is my second time at Duo Nomad. If you want to have a rest after a day of work this is the best hostel. Quiet, totally clean, safe with a great guest atmosphere. All the staff are excellent. You can speak English, Portuguese and Spanish and enjoy free pizza on Sundays. This is amazing! I’m felt safe at the hostel and protected by Ellen. She is strong, caring, sweet and takes care of all the guests in an amazing way! Always asking if everyone slept well and if they needed anything. I

    What a great group of people you have working for your Hostel. Everyone was warm, and willing. I would stay there again..However, it was not wheel chair accessible. Although, i had tjis obstacle. The crew went above and beyond to accomadate my situation withput question or push back...they made me feel welcome there. I had a wonderful time.

    The beds themselves are deeply comfortable and feel rather enormous, always masterpieces of precice bed-making worthy of the French Foreign Legion, so welcome (and memorable) after the surprising multitude of the increasing demands of Washington D.C. The neighborhood is vintage McKinley Administration. Eighth Street S.E. two blocks up has most of the immediate resources. International travellers here frequently have some strong conversational skills at the ready.

    Great team working there, if you do not like stairs then dont go there, you had to go through 9 circles of (hell) stairs to get there, otherwise it was great breakfast and people met. So absolutely worth the money invested. Location top!

    Although this hostel was in a great location, the staff were incredible and the hostel was super clean. There isn't enough security. It was uncomfortable that no bedroom doors had security locks so anyone could walk in. The bathrooms had no privacy and no space to undress and dress yourself privately. Putting 3 men and one women is NOT considered a mixed room. Please be considerate of a women's safety. Placing a woman with three men is ridiculous. You might as well foand another male
