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...
Location, staff, facilities were nice. Excellent value for the price!
Small and old bathroom, steady stair. But for that price I won't ask for more.
great location nice people My 4 bed mixed room has a separate bathroom pretty clean
entrance is messy (1335 door) I lived on 3rd floor, wifi signal was really poor air conditional was super noisy
location is very good walk to the 14 th str (good street) and white house ....
wifi is not good
A shuttle to the mall
It was great cant complain
I have stayed with them more that 5 times as I have business in DC . They have a good price , location and necessary facilities. I would recommend this place to all travelers.
I arrived there at 11 p.m, because my international flight was delayed. But this hotel asked me to check in before 10 p.m, however, this unreasonable information sent me in email just 3 hours before my arrival there.I was travelling in U.S, how can I check my email at that time! they wrote a call number in their window, I tried to call them so many times but without any response. That night, I had no place to sleep, but this hotel holds this rule with cruel and merciless and made me homeless. more curiously, this hotel has unimaginable terrible communal facilities, a whole floor, maybe 16 people shared one bathroom! even the tap was broken. In the tiny room, there is no AC but just a noisy big big fan serves the poor cold air for 8 people! a kindness couple allowed me to use one of their bed for that night, but the second day, even though their staff had already working, but make me await for a long time, and finally they told me my reservation was cancelled because i haven't checked in on time! the staff is rude the facility is broken the place is far away from the subway
Staff nice and helpful, very good location, walking distance from the centre.
There is no air-condition which made it difficult to sleep in a hot summer night, although a member of the staff sincerely wanted to help and found an electric floor fan for me. Not suitable for elder people or for ones with heavy suitcases, given very steep staircase.
Bathroom was small and could be cleaner.
Great atmosphere in this place, the staff are open and friendly, the place has character, you feel comfortable there as soon as you walk in
Nothing ,please return my money as promised for 10% discount. Please confirm it from ur sent email box. Dr anand kumar
They did not responded me and discount for genius 10% as already emailed from u . please do not make false promises to attract people .the cashier did not even bothered to stare at my paper sent from u of discount.
Kitchen facilities were great, location is perfect, plenty of space outside of rooms to eat and meet people. Checkout is ridiculously easy. The bathrooms were better than expected. Guests respected rules and each other. It's clean, but a very old building so it doesn't always look it.
Somewhat limited office hours. I wanted to be able to leave my luggage before I went to work on the day I checked in, but wasn't able to so I had to carry it all day around dc.
Staff and rooms were fine. Much cheaper then anywhere else in DC.
Was extremely humid while I was in DC and the non-airconditioned rooms were so unbearably hot I had to checkout after the first day and go elsewhere. You have to take off shoes and wear slippers on the premises, which felt slippery on bunk ladders and the lumpy floor under the carpet on the stairs. Lots of competition for bathrooms, and one bathroom doesn't have hot water unless you also turn on the basin tap!
Location is good, not so far from the center
No aircondition in the private room. I needed to fix blinds on window and when I stood up on bed, it's leg collapsed. However I could fix it, it's not an experience what a traveler want.
Budget friendly shared bathroom place, safe area of DC and within walking distance to most places. Vey Helpful and knowledgeable weekday check-in guy.
The shared shower was a bit quirky to use. Weekend check-out guy could have been a little more friendly. Place was a little rundown but seemed clean.
Place, rooms, clean, perfect place.
They people were nice, ammenitites were comfortable. The beds were ok I guess, but hey, it's like $30 a night so it's a great deal. Their kitchen was big and there are two living rooms to hang out in. Walking distance of the national mall is a plus. Loved my experience overall.
There's a "no shoes" rule but they provide you with some slippers which is nice. It makes it feel like more of a home rather than a hotel.
Everybody hung out together in common areas. The atmosphere was very welcoming.
Little bit dirty.
Nice Location. Nice Room.
They have no roof over the patio, so when it rains and ur a smoker or just wanna sit outside - impossible.
Clean, central, friendly, loved DC Lofty!
very good location, nice common area and big kitchen. Toilets separate from showers. codes to open both front door and room.
Felt somehow not entirely clean, clogged toilet when we arrived. Not very comfortable bed. Also a sign on the door AFTER you climb up the stairs that you should use another entrance :-D
Small Kitchens Not a secured place to leave the luggage , door always opened
There was no hot water in the shower because it's depends on the people and time you wake up.
