CHECK OUT OUR MONTHLY RATES ONLINE
We have monthly rates starting at $500 per month. We cater exclusively to long-term guests such as international students & interns. While most hostels are designed to accommodate a revolving door of guests who only plan to stay for a few nights, we designed our hostel with the long-term guest in mind. This includes features such as huge common areas and full kitchens.
FREEDOM FOR BACKPACKERS
Are you traveling throughout the United States? Guests staying with us receive free accommodations & transportation at any of our other locations! Check out our terms and conditions online for details.
FLEXIBILITY AND LOW MONTHLY RATES
If you reserve a spot for a month, you can check-out early at any time and receive a full refund on the days that you don’t use. This is great option if you’re new to Washington DC and are searching for an apartment.
