heeting works pretty good, clean place, good room for one.
door bell doesn't work, I stand on cold 15 minutes till someone open for me. Staff didn't care to give information
the only thing i didn't like that i was short 2.00 dollars and i wasn't able to go to my room until i paid everything in full... But other than that everything was great..
They offer a pretty centralized location, good Wi-Fi connection and I guess a great atmosphere as for common rooms. I was fortunate to get one of the thicker matresses so I slept well all three nights. I was a bit nervous about staying in a mixed dorm, but the residents have a lot of respect for one another, so it was cool even being the only girl with four men.
When I got there, the room was freezing cold, I had to sleep in my clothes. The following evening a water pipe broke (probably bc of the cold) so for the rest of my stay I didn't have a restroom or shower. No compensation offered either. My last morning they'd got cold water back at least, so I could take a cold shower and brush my teeth. By then my bladder had learned to control itself. Oh and the rooms were still pretty cold - my plastic bottle water held its cold temperature.
Safe and comfortable WIFI connection very good. Staff helpfull and friendly
There is a method for getting hot shower water..
I've met many interesting people who went to the hostel for a few days from many different states and countries (in my room, we represented 3 different countries). The staff is very friendly and very helpful - they'll answer any questions you might have about DC and do their best to ensure you're enjoying your stay.
everything was okay
Only stayed for a single night, but my experience was excellent. - Very friendly staff, extremely helpful with delayed/late check in, and directions. - Really nice communal areas including a well maintained kitchen and living rooms. - Clean and attractive bathrooms. Will use this accommodation any time i'm in the area in the future.
Friendly staff. Cleaning. Price. Comfortable. Location.
No napkins in the kitchen. Some people sometimes very noisy in common areas and talking in the room until too late at night, there are not rules in these matters.
Personnel was really nice. Good location 10min walking to metro station, 20-30min walking distance to all museums.
Although is winter the room was too warm.
Lovely staff, good facility, room is relatively clean depends on which room you get arranged, I saw some rooms have got refurbished.
The heating is too hot. Locker seems to be small.
Clean comfortable, warm and friendly.
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!
