I’ve stayed here for over a week and really love the atmosphere and hospitality. I love the social inclusion, breakfast and dinner nights.

It is amazing The cleanliness of the bathrooms and beds. The kitchen is very comfortable

Excellent service and stay. Place is clean and not too noisy

The best hostel I have ever stayed in, will definitely recommend to friends who travel to DC

Nice hotel staffs, they have different agenda every night. Don't forget to take earplug in the front desk. More patients when there is unrespectful roommate.

It was a nice stay (I stayed only overnight). Clean room and bathroom, many comfortable common areas to relax, watch TV, read, or work on your laptop. Staff is smiley and helpful, I will certainly use this hostel again. As I did not rent a car, it was very nice that staff gave me a detailed printout of my itineraries by the public transportation.

It was in the heart of the Adams Morgan district. There was plenty of bars and food options, and a diversity of people and cultures. The only bad thing was that in an all male dorm, with predominately female staff. They do room checks randomly and knock for a millisecond and open the door, so you could be naked, I was half but under the covers. I thought it was a bit weird. This was two times at least while I was here and the other bunk mates, said he was in a private room and they did that to him as well. But I’d stay there in a heartbeat if I was back in DC. The staff were diligent, welcoming, and smart.

Immaculate, great staff, perfect location! Haven't hosteled in 20 years but HighRoad has inspired to do it again regularly.

The hostel's well worth it that you can stay here. The staffs are very cheerful and good service. Convenient location.

I had a wonderful stay at the HighRoad Hostel in DC. The staff was very helpful, my bed was clean and very comfy, and the place is well organized and has a welcoming vibe. My only small criticism woujd be to get real fruit juices instead of1% blend for breakfast - and I also noticed that the banjo juice blend contained high fructose syrup. Otherwise, it was a great stay.

Space is limited when hostel is booked to capacity

Great experience! the only complaint is the second night had a snorer in the room! expected and not sure how you solve that! Thanks for the great stay,

Stayed there for a weekend and I had a good time. The staff were lovely and the facility was cleaned. The room was small for six people but it was cleaned and functional. It felt like a college/dorm style house and the vibe was positive. There’s a lot of good restaurants around and there are buses nearby but they are not quick enough. I was on a budget and this place fulfilled my requirements.

Excellent place where to stay if you want to save some money. Very clean and Nice people overall.

I have never stayed in a Hostel... To Be Honest I have been reluctant because of the movie Hostel and the idea of sharing a room with a stranger. After staying at the High Road Hostel I not only would stay at their establishment again but I am going to be checking out hostels on my next vacations. The staff was fantastic, the amenities were perfect, and the kitchen was fantastically stocked. I met men and woman from all over the country and it is an experience you could not attain any other way. Thank you team for treating me well and making sure we are all safe with 24 hour attendants.

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and our awesome neighborhood! Adams Morgan is full of culture, great people and lots of fun. I'm happy you were able to enjoy all it has to offer! In regards to our staff -- its part of policy to physically check the rooms 2-3 times a day. We do this to ensure all beds are ready for the days arrivals and do bed checks in the evenings to make sure all is well in the rooms. I'm sorry if having female staff members come into your room made you uncomfortable. We don't always have specific genders working to be able to check gender specific dorm rooms. We try to knock and shout "staff" as a heads up to make sure we aren't interrupting anything! We will keep this in mind moving forward, making sure we give more of a notice before entering single-gendered rooms. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and wish you the best with your future travels!
