Overview

The HI Washington DC has everything a backpacker needs: food, fun and plenty of space to relax and meet new people. Begin your day with a free breakfast (is there a better way to start?), then let us show you around on a free city tours or pub crawl. In the evenings, hang in the common room, play some pool or come to movie night in the TV room decked out in huge, comfy seats and a stockpile of DVDs. When the sun’s shining, head out onto the patio and toast your stay in DC with a cocktail!

Location

We make seeing all the best sights in DC super easy, thanks to our central location. Stroll to the White House in just 15 minutes, the National Mall in 23 minutes and Chinatown in 10. Flying into Dulles International Airport? Hop on the bus, then switch to the metro blue line – you'll be with us in an hour. If you’re exploring farther afield, you’ll find we're just 10 minutes from the nearest Metrorail stop, Metro Center.

Rooms and Dorms

You can pick between mixed, male- and female-only dorms, as well as twin private rooms if you like your space. Every floor has single-sex bathrooms with free body wash, and every room has secure lockers for your stuff (just remember to bring your lock). There's air con, and we’ve thrown in linen and towels for free, too.

Extras and activities

You'll find friendly staff at our 24-hour reception, along with free city maps. There's no curfew, so you can stay out as late as you want. Load up your route using the free Wi-Fi in the lobby to save on data roaming, and get some cash at the ATM so you're never strapped. If you’re staying in, our kitchen has everything you need to cook up your favourite dinner for a taste of home, or make your version of the great American cheeseburger!

    This is one of my favorite hostels! I go to D.C. very often and I always stay here. The location is perfect, all staff is always friendly, the dinning area and breakfast are very nice, people staying there are always nice and interesting, the place is very clean and every bed has an outlet to charge cell phones. This time they change the pillows and now they are all plastic...I sweat terrible every night because of that, I agree they're more hygienic but didn't really enjoyed them. Will be back!

    My friend and I wanted a clean, safe, inexpensive place to stay during our DC trip. HI Washington fit the bill. Great location, easily accessible, and the facilities are fine. Clean beds, clean bathrooms, excellent staff. They even serve breakfast! (My one quibble: no dairy milk alternatives with breakfast, and no veg*an hot breakfast options.) I would stay here again, no hesitation.

    Having been to multiple hostels, I would rank this hostel among the best. The employees were very nice, and the volunteers that led the events each evening were amazing. The events themselves raised the bar for other hostels by providing those staying at the hostel with a fun, easy way to meet the others staying there.

    This was one of the best hostels ever be stayed at. The whole experience made me extremely happy. You get a cookie upon check in, which is really sweet (literally!). The rooms are clean, bathrooms were spotless. They have a different activity almost every day to partake in (I participated in the pizza and game night and made some friends from South Africa!). Staff were great and helped make my weekend enjoyable. The free breakfast was delicious and will definitely fill you up. Good job!

    I had heard good things about your hostel and it was true. The front staff was friendly and helpful, there was lots of room for my luggage, it was safe and it a nice area of town, though a bit of a walk for my particular event. Thank you for offering such a relatively inexpensive alternative to the outrageously expensive hotels in Wash. DC. Oh - the breakfast was quite nice too!
