"It's really well-run and organized. The staff is very friendly, and the guests are mostly interns or job-seekers, so you know you'll get to sleep at night. The no alcohol policy is great because people don't act drunk…"

Liked: Mixture between hostel and long-term-place-to-stay for interns in D.C. It's a perfect place for someone staying longer than your usual 3-day-weekend in d.c.

Wesley Chia

01 July 2008 Wesley would recommend this property

Liked: Whilst the Lofstel is quite a far distance out of town, it is a very nice hostel which feels like a huge group home. The place is basically a big house, with lots of rooms upstairs. The staff are good, and the guests respectful. The beds and bathrooms are clean and hygienic. It's a great place to stay if you are going to be around for awhile... but it's a bit far out of town, but if you can handle the train ride and walk, then this is definitely a great hostel!

Disliked: Wesley left no negative feedback.

Daniel Kavan

21 May 2008 Daniel would recommend this property

Liked: This place was super clean but the best bit is that it felt nothing like a hostel, more like living in a really friendly sharehouse. Good place to meet Americans rather than just other backpackers.
