Overview

**VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL GUESTS BOOKING FROM DECEMBER-MARCH**

Due to the renovation of our elevator, we will not have elevator access in our hostel from mid-December to mid-March. This renovation means that we will not be able to accommodate guests with limited or compromised mobility. For guests on higher floors, we do have storage lockers available in our basement. If you have a reservation during this time and have limited mobility, please do not hesitate to contact us for reservation changes or cancellations at (202)737-2333, or reserve.dc@hiusa.com.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this refurbishment may cause for your travel plans.

Located near the city’s most famous attractions, Hostelling International-Washington, DC (HI-DC) offers a friendly and inexpensive lodging experience for travelers. We provide an unbeatable environment (and a long list of amenities) that brings together international and domestic travelers. We also provide groups a comfortable and safe place to stay. Read more
