Centrally located hostel in Washington, DC. We are just blocks, and less than 10 minutes away from The Convention Center, less than a mile from the White House, and only a metro stop away from the monuments, the museums, and all of the major attractions in the capital. Staying at DC Lofty also gives you access to Capital View, its awesome roof top patio with hammocks, lounge chairs, grill, darts, and music! Save at DC Lofty, while utilizing our rooftop pool and Jacuzzi access on weekdays!

We had a great time at DC lofty. The manager was kind and nice with us. There’s a kitchen where you can leave food if you want, cook, and also there are groceries if you want. I made pancakes for free. The place is a perfect location, near downtown. The room was cleaned, with a b

Hi! I'm lving in NY and I want to go maybe this friday but I haven't credit card to make the book, if I arrived friday night can I pay in cash? Is the same price? Thank you!

"the 4-person room has a private bathroom; however it is right by the entrance where everybody passes by"
"get a 4-bed room if you have problems sleeping..."
"Get an ensuite :) I know the communal bathrooms were always busy!"
