Super comfortable and clean place. Staff were excellent and extremely friendly. Kitchen was spacious with multiple living areas and TVs. An added bonus is the use of a jacuzzi at the apartments they manage down at Capital Hill (near their sister hostel - Capital View).
They were undergoing (small) renovations in one of the hallways during my stay which is the only thing I could fault but these were managed really well and didn't impact they stay of people living at the hostel. Overall, great hostel with a great vibe.
I liked the security system and the idea they give some flip flops to use inside the place.
Heater... the place is cold! I spent seven days there and all days it was cold. Inside room it was a little bit better. I went to the front desk in my first day to ask about it and ask about turn up the temperature but they said nothing and changed nothing. At least I spent more time outside that than inside.
One of the female reception is rude
Convenient location, clean, very friendly staff, secured. I will definitely come back for DC Lofty to stay in the future...
Just a couple of blocks away from the Convention Center. Great place, ok price.
Sometimes seemed a bit too crowded.
Ambiance, common room, bedroom.
Showers with low pressure and cold water. No soap in toilet.
When I took a shower, there was no hot water. So I had to take a shower with cold water. Also washroom was in dirty condition.
Great hostel, great atmosphere; friendly, helpful people work there (with a special mention for Anthony!). The shared kitchen's great, the rooms are more than correct. And a good balance between part people and others!
Well located clean hostel! Staff is really helpfull and friendly. Rooms and bathrooms are really clean. Located at 20 min walk from the white house or the Smithsonians. 5 min walk from the metro station vermont sq where you are on the line straight forward to the DCA.
The facility was old and in need of work. The steel frame on my bed fell apart 2 of 4 nights. No bathmats in shower, often not enough toilet paper, no handwash after 1 night, despite taking early evening showers was usually no hot water. Noisy rooms next door on 2 nights so poor sleep I would not stay again
I would come back to DC just because of the friendly experience I had at Lofty. Staff is awesome. Feels like your with family and friends there.
Rooms are dark and dank. Showers not the cleanest I've seen.
It's bearable for the cheap price.
Very old air condition, no private bathroom even with a single room. No elevator. Extra charge for late arrival- beware.
Good wi fi connection, location, the staff, the kitchen, the living room with PCs available!
Good stuff and price
The place is very good located. The staff were nice and helpful.
I got lost in the hostels. Some signs with numbers of rooms would be useful.
It looked like there hadn't been vacuumed ever. The kitchen area was discusting there was flies everywhere from people leave their food there but it is not thrown out when they leave, we found food that was over 2 months old in the fridge. The shower was dirty, when we arrived there was still hair in the drain and on the floor. Do not stay here!
- The location
- Beds were old and noisy - Pillows were non existent for how flat they were - Everything in general was very... very old - Wifi working at moments - Extra charge for a simple email with codes for late checkin (...why?) - Lockers but no locks (the first night I slept with my laptop under the pillow)
Staff were friendly, location is great - easy walk to the White House, close to Logan Circle, 14th Street restaurants and shops and buses; value is superb for the area. A nice bar also right across the street.
I had a single room that was filled with a loud air conditioner and a desk that blocked the window. The shared shower in the hall needed to be run together with the sink to generate enough flow to get hot water to the shower - not the best system, though there were instructions posted. The hostel requires everyone to wear slippers indoors, but the slipper storage system was not the easiest (mine disappeared promptly) and added significant time to coming and going from the building trying to locate my own labelled pair among the many many other pair. Every time I sat in the bathroom I wished I had a paint brush, because the whole building could look much better with a bit of a touch up.
friendly staff, clean showerroom, clean room
a bit far from center of city to walk no breakfast
Let's say that at peak times, when everybody is around in the morning or in the evenings, the wifi doesn't work properly it's dead slow
- friendly qualified personnel -low price - big kitchen - free laundry - TV, Wi-Fi, books, computer provided - free print documents
everything was next to perfect for required price. I got pleasure to stay there
I was there for two nights and i really enjoyed my stay. I would like to pinpoint the hotel manager mike, who was extraordinary helpful and made my stay wonderful.
Less number of toilet.
Clean and frindly house full of different people who travelled in Washingdon DC... Great staff I loved the idea of nice living room with tv and sofas, computers with internet, wifi, and entertainment written on the board, thanks to this place we had access to swimming pool and jaccuzi on teh top roof with Capital view FOR FREE ! Spend there lovely two nights and would def recommend !!!
sharing room with random people, but this is what hostels do...
The location was fair, for the price.
There was no hot water, no air conditioner, we were not able to open the windows, the room was to hot and I couldn't sleep well, I won't come back to this hostel and I don't recommend.
Location, staff, facilities were nice. Excellent value for the price!
