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.***

Overview

Set in a mansion with Italian Carrara marble work surfaces in the kitchen, Highroad Hostel DC's got the feel of a boutique hotel. The common room's pretty much a parlour – there's a fireplace to warm your toes and retro-style sofas. Ask our friendly staff about our dinners, and you might be able to wrangle some free mac 'n' cheese to eat while making the most of our Netflix! You'll also have free breakfast every morning. Mix with other travellers by joining our free events – think bar nights, neighbourhood outings and ice-cream socials.

Location

We're in the Adams Morgan neighbourhood – that's party central – which is home to indie shops, buzzing bars and pizza-by-the-slice joints. The White House is a 40-minute walk away, and the Washington Monument is 18 minutes by bus. We're about 90 minutes from Baltimore-Washington International Airport by public transport. Jump on the free shuttle to Union Station, then take bus 96 towards Tenleytown from the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Columbus Circle. Get off at 18th St/Belmont Rd, and we’re a minute's walk away.

Rooms and Dorms

Our en-suite private rooms and mixed or female-only dorms are a step up from the usual – all beds have memory-foam mattresses and free luxury linen. You'll have a personal light, so you don't have to fumble with your phone's flashlight to read, and towels and lockers are free as well. Big windows, not to mention the air con, make these spaces feel bright and cool.

Extras and activities

Finished updating your travel blog on our free Wi-Fi? There's an outdoor patio where you can sip on a free hot drink or have a snack from the vending machines. If you want travel tips, head to the 24-hour reception any time. Staff are there around the clock to answer your questions, whether you want to know the best way to get to the Smithsonian, or need a restaurant recommendation.

    HighRoad is amazing. From the moment I walked in I felt inspired, peaceful, and taken care of. I shared a room with 8 women, slept soundly and enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. There were countless excellent restaurants within walking distance and lots to explore. I really hope to be back one day!

    2nd time staying here and it is one of my favorite in the world. The vibe is very social and they have nightly events to bring the hostel together. No pressure to socialize if you want to be alone though. Beds are comfortable, showers are hot and clean, and the hostel is right across from many bars/clubs. Bus services the hostel nearby and the metro is a 20 min walk. It is in a beautiful neighborhood. Staff are very attentive and knowledgable. Great hostel for solo travelers! Thanks again.

    the hostel is great for young adults! the area surrounding highroad is perfect for nights on the town and good eats. the hostel is very lively and a lot of open space allows for good conversations to start! Bfast was vvvvv basic but there is a lot of good places around the hostel to eat, and the hostel is clean (esp the bathrooms!!) there’s plenty of transportation options close to be able to get to the tourist destinations in 15-20ish. def recommend to the younger (18-24ish) vibe!

    A wonderful stay. The location is close to parking ($20/d), short walks to restaurants and short Lyft ride to downtown. The staff was accommodating. There are lots of amenities: personal care items, daily social events. The night we stayed, they offered free pasta dinner. The beds were sturdy, comfortable and the linen was crisp and cool The duvet was wonderful. Continental breakfast that included kid-friendly food was offered. Great coffee! Didn't get the 1/2 sized bed pillows!

    Really enjoyed my stay! Very nice area that I loved exploring. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Had to extend my stay for another night and they made the rebooking and transition process very smooth. The storage lockers could be a bit bigger, but that's just a nitpicky observation (saw some of my roommates having to put their suitcases under their beds or out in the open, that's all). Otherwise I would definitely stay again, thank you!

    Staff was awesome. The only tricky thing was location - Metro is a bit far, and there are only 2 busses that can get u to the city (and still that’s half an hour). The neighbourhood is nice though. The showers could use a more frequent cleaning :)
