Property Description

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.

*** Breakfast: A basic free breakfast is served each day from 6:30am - 10:00am. The free breakfast includes cereals, milk, toast, butter & jelly, oatmeal, and coffee and tea. The staff onsite can tell you where to find delicious cafes all within only one block from the hostel that offer other items such as espresso, hot breakfast items, or gluten free baked goods.***

    I really enjoyed my stay at Highroad. The staff was super friendly and helpful with any questions I had. The rooms and facilities were clean and comfortable, there was free breakfast and snacks and they even showed the Game of Thrones finale in the lobby for us. I would definitely stay here again!

    Outstanding experience all around! The location is obviously great - but that’s only where it starts. The staff are all awesome and the hostel itself is well-appointed. The kitchen is everything anyone could ask for and it’s also quite clean and comfortable. Highly recommended and I will stay here again!

    Great hostel, great location, great staff, just all around really great hostel. They do social activities every night. Each night there were people drinking on the patio ready to go out for the night, then they would all leave around 11pm or so. It was nice that it was so social. Also, it wasn't only Americans there, there was a lot of people from different countries staying there. That was great for Americans like me, who wanted to meet people from all over the world. Will stay here again.

    We arrived at 2am and alarmed the stuff before, everything was waiting for us including the note on my bed. Unfortunately my bed was taken by mistake by some other guy so hostel stuff suggested an upgrade to different room with no extra charge (which I didn’t take because I wanted to stay with my friends at the same room). They were super nice and helpful with trying to figure out this situation. A BIG thank you for taking such good care of us! Great atmosphere in common area.

    Absolutely loved it. I went here all alone, as I was traveling alone, but the atmosphere and environment was just so welcoming and friendly that I didn’t feel odd about being “alone”. I made friends right away, it’s a great place to come and socialize, get a new experience in a different city for a good price. It’s also very spacious and close to many different bars. I loved that everyone respected each other. Whenever I go to DC, I’ll definitely want to come back to this place!

    Such a cool space! Staff are so nice and helpful and the hostel is set up for people to socialise! Nice porch area outside to hangout as well. Events every night which are ideal. Only downside is the lockers, very small so you can’t fit your backpack or suitcase.
