Property Description

The HighRoad welcomes you to your home away from home. We offer comfort in the heart of Adams Morgan with spacious common areas, clean bathrooms and guest rooms, amazing views, custom Pod-style bunks, and more within a vintage Victorian mansion. We’ve thought of all of the ins and outs to make sure our guests have a smooth and comfortable stay.

Now operating at half capacity, we welcome back guests in an even cleaner and cozier setting. We are doing our very best with making sure we are practicing safety protocols for COVID-19 including, but not limited to: enforcing a few night minimum stay, practicing social distancing, wearing masks, enhanced daily cleaning with hospital-grade sanitizers and disinfectants, and limiting some of our typically offered services.

Our new Front Desk operating hours are as follows:
HighRoad is open daily from 9 AM - 12 PM and from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM. If your arrival is outside desk hours, please give us as much advanced notice as possible. Without notice, you will not have access into the building. We ask all guests let us know their estimated time of arrival, regardless of when you arrive.

The HighRoad is located where the nightlife is, has welcoming staff, plus has the most spacious, clean rooms and luxury bathrooms.

Even more, the HighRoad guest rooms have memory foam mattresses, luxury linens, reading lights, bed dividers, all the hooks you could need, large windows and locked storage space. Also included free towels.

Even better is the common space - a classy parlour room with a cozy fireplace lets you see DC’s nightlife just out the front door in Adams Morgan. Plus, a huge kitchen area with real Italian Carrara marble island, stainless steel appliances, and all the cookware you could need lets you hang out and cook some meals like a true iron chef.

In addition, the HighRoad has free computers for you to get some work done, book future travel or catch up with people back home. And on top of it all, The HighRoad's amazing staff will ensure that you have the most memorable stay in DC. They'll help you plan your day packing it full of the must-see DC attractions as well as unique local experiences that you won't find in your guidebook. They'll plan events at the hostel to help you meet fellow travelers .

The HighRoad is located in the neighborhood of Adams Morgan which borders both the U Street Corridor and the Dupont Circle area.
Adams Morgan isn’t known for its historic row homes or calm side streets, although it has both. Visitors flock to this neighborhood to shop for one-of-a-kind items at its independent businesses, dance the night away at its countless bars, and finish their evenings chewing on slices of authentic jumbo pizza. Yet the area also has fine dining and cozy coffee shops.

HighRoad Hostel DC Policies & Conditions:

Deposit Policy: The Hostel reserves the right to charge your credit card for the cost of your TOTAL STAY prior to arrival in order to guarantee the reservation and check the validity of this credit card. The HighRoad will charge your card IMMEDIATELY AFTER BOOKING IS MADE for Non-refundable reservations and during check-in for Standard Reservations.

Property Cancellation Policy:
1. Standard-Flexible Reservations: Standard-Flexible Reservations may be cancelled up to 4:00 p.m. (16:00 hours; Washington D.C. Time) on the day prior to arrival to avoid being charged the late cancellation fee of first night's rate & tax. In other words, if you cancel your reservation before 4:00 p.m. (Washington D.C. Time) on the day before arrival, there is no late cancellation fee and the deposit on file will be refunded.

2. Late Cancellation Fee: Any cancellations made after 4:00 p.m. (D.C. Time) on the day prior to arrival will incur a cancellation fee equal to the first night's price plus tax.

3. Non-Refundable Reservations: Cancellation policy does not apply to special non-refundable reservations. If your reservation was booked as a non-refundable reservation, then it is non-refundable. Full payment is required at time of booking and this amount is non-refundable. Non-Refundable reservations cannot be altered or cancelled free of charge.

4. Same Day Reservations: Same day reservations still apply to our cancellation policy. In the event that you cannot arrive for your same day reservation, you will still incur a cancellation fee equal to the first night's plus tax. Please also note for same day reservations, we may not have had the chance to charge your card as a pre-paid reservation. At check-in, our Front Desk team can verify for you!

    Eazy to find, friendly stuff, clean. Lots of bars on the nearby street. Don't know about other days, during my stay for breakfast was offered various types of cereal, milk, juice, coffee. The beds were comfortable. As 6'6 person l fit relatively good. Although I prefer to have no footboard

    It was a really chill place. The hostel had thought of all possible amenities that an individual could ask for and had everything ready for me. The breakfast spread was also generous. I wish I had stayed for some more time and explore all that the hostel had to offer. Will visit again! Thank you!

    A really really cool hostel in a sweet area of D.C. Facilities are amazing. It was a bit empty during the week, I assume because people cancelled due to coronavirus, but that is to be expected. I still had an awesome time with the guests that stayed. Staff & cleaners went around frequently spraying surfaces and making sure everything was clean. A St Patrick's holiday I'll not forget 🍀💚🍻

    Overall a nice hostel - big cosy common area, great kitchen and excellent location in AdMo with good access to local buses. Unfortunately they were not doing the breakfast each morning and the room I was in could have been cleaner for the price. Would stay again though if I was back in DC.
