Poor 2.0
First off, the guy that’s at the front desk is an a**whole. He makes the most corniest racist jokes ever and he’s very offensive. He gets off on making people feel ashamed. He spies on people on a constant basis, which I feel uncomfortable of. He talks down on people, a few from which I’ve seen during my 2 days there. Second, there are prostitutes that walk up and down the street where the hostel is located. I don’t feel comfortable as a girl seeing this. Third, there is consistent construction noise throughout the entire day over there, I asked the construction crew how long will this last for, they said it should be done in about 8 months!! The owner should really be concerned about how his guy is running this place. He will never get repeat business from me today or my family or friends. I will make more complaints as well. There are better and similar priced hostels in DC. Don’t fall for this price trap!

Honest truth about Hostel Duo
This is by far the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed at in my life... I’m a well travelled person and do not have many expectations, especially from hostels. The manager at this hostel is by far the worst and very rude and judge mental, his jokes are rude and he is arrogant and extremely ignorant. He asks for all your information meanwhile giving you his judgement towards it. His name is AZ, he knows all of our information, yet we don’t know a single thing about him. He is very ruly, has no patience and forces people who are shy or unwilling to meet others to be “together”, while at the same time getting into confrontation with many of the guests. I will never book another night at this place. There’s constant construction noise from the building next door and I will not go through being belittled by this owner wannabe. Do yourselves a favor and book a stay at DC lofty, it’s much more of a chill environment and the kitchen is huge! The staff are LAID BACK and are extremely humble and REAL! The rules here at DC lofty get too intense to even make your stay worthwhile, even for a night. The REAL owner, Sachs, should definitely check up on the guy he has running the place, who goes by the name AZ. DISGRACEFUL and a WASTE.
