Welcome to our hostel

The HI-Washington, DC (HI-DC) team welcomes you to a wonderful stay and a great city! Our hostel is conveniently located just minutes away from the White House, National Mall (home to many iconic monuments and museums), the Smithsonian museums and art galleries (and they're free!), and many other exciting DC attractions. China Town is close, as well, with bars / pubs, restaurants, and a vibrant night life. We offer comfortable dorm-style accommodations, and double rooms for those who prefer a little more privacy. Here at HI-DC, we have a variety of ways for travelers to meet and mingle. Fix a meal in our new kitchen, enjoy a complimentary breakfast in our big and welcoming dining room, join one of our free tours, shoot a round of pool in our game room, or spend a quiet moment reading in our cozy library. However you decide to spend your time, you are sure to enjoy yourself, make new friends, and have a blast in our nation's capital! ~ Mark Schneider, HI-DC General Manager. *****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 We apologize for any inconvenience that this refurbishment may cause for your travel plans.
