We're located just 5 minutes to the US Capitol, The Library of Congress, The Washington Navy Yard and many more nearby attractions.

Check out what makes Duo Nomad the #1 choice for students, travelers, and interns!

Duo Nomad is designed to encourage interaction among our guests as much as possible. Our rooms are shared, as are the bathroom facilities, kitchens, and living rooms.

    highly recommend staying here if your going to a festival or concert. me and 5 of my friends stayed here for project glow and absolutely loved how convenient the location was, how clean it is, and how friendly the staff is. It’s a short walk to the eastern market station which pretty much will take u to where u need to go. Alexander welcomed us with open arms and was friendly and courteous to us. definitely going to stay here again if i’m going to a show in the area.

    Very friendly staff and everything I needed for a two night stay in dc. Very centrically located, 5 min walking from a Trader Joe’s and bus/train metro stops. Beware of stairs, there are 3 floors, and they’re pretty narrow. Not necessarily a bad thing but overall not a lot of elbow room.

    Staying at the Duo Nomad is like staying in a family house. The rooms are quite small and the lockers are not big enough to contain a big backpack, so I would suggest this hostel only for 1/2 nights. The restrooms are very clean and spacious. The breakfast consists in pancakes with maple syrup + coffee/tea. The staff is very kind and accomodating.

    Overall a nice stay. Great location. I wish the room had a lock on it but nobody messed with our stuff so 🤷‍♀️. Although for cleanliness purposes I get their food policy but don’t expect to bring late night food back and eat it inside. Bring house shoes otherwise you are supposed to walk around inside barefoot.

    Very Good

    I'll just list what I didn't like... the area in all was extremely cramped. The hallway, bathrooms, rooms, STAIRWAY... the stairway could easily be a fall hazard, 2 people cannot go up or down at the same time. Bathroom for women does not provide enough privacy and no locked door. I wouldn't recommend unless you're in a pinch.

    The photos of this property are misleading. The quarters are very cramped and the stairways steep and narrow. Having bad feet, I found it less than ideal. But the staff were nice, as were the guests. Hostels are always very interesting! As far as security, the front door is the only thing that locks; it works aalmost entirely on an honor system, although there are some tiny, grimy lockers available if you bring a lock. Also, the little patio on the roof is kind of dirty, but it was tolerable.

    Does not seem safe. Front door is locked, but there is a document slot in it big enough for an arm to go through and open the door. Room doors do not lock. There did not seem to be enough lockers for everyone if it was a full house, and they are on the second floor only, so may not even be by your room. Hostel is no shoes allowed, so required to keep my shoes in a "public" shoe rack. Beds are so vlose together you can barely move inside the rooms. Staff were amazing though! Great work staff!
