Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good points, location decent, supermarket close, staff really nice and helpful. Cleanliness was OK
Problems. There just weren't enough facilities for the size. One communal bathroom for loads of people, so it got dirty quickly and you had to queue to get in. Not enough seating in the living area. Kitchen nice, but small and only one cooker. At the moment the hostel is in 2 buildings so you have to go outside onto the street if you want to go to make a cup of tea, which is rubbish. You also have to take shoes off in the building, so this just adds to the inconvenience.
I can't say I'd really recommend this hostel til the 2 buildings are joined back up and even then only if you have a strong bladder and don't want to cook much.

Nice little hostel, in great location (walking distance to everywhere, with a pharmacy/grocer and bottle shop nearby. Only complaint is the air conditioning unit in the room which was really loud and the lack of showers (one per floor for up to 16 guests a floor). But apart from that it was a pleasant stay - the staff were lovely and helpful, the common areas were good and it had a very "homely" feel to the place. I would stay there again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

During my stay in DC Lofty Center, I got total satisfaction. The place were clean. Basic fundamental rules such as respect for other guests, self kitchen management and the availibility of internet 24h/24 and the availibility of staff to help are some examples that make this Center very nice.

This hostel was carpeted throughout (unusual), and extremely clean (also unusual - possibly because they make you take your shoes off at the front door.) I enjoyed my time here - it didn't feel like a hostel, more like staying in a distant relative's house when you were a child. Pleasant, informal atmosphere. Lots of common areas, wifi throughout the building, a great kitchen to save on food costs. Only one bathroom per floor, which was a bit of a pain - but at least it was a proper bathroom! No communal showers here. Overall, a great, cost-effective base to experience DC from.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Excellent value and very kind and professional staff. I have stayed at Guesthouses in approximately 15 countries. And this I would say is one of the best in North America. The kitchen facilities are great. Two big livingrooms with comfy sofa's and even a videogaming area. What made everything great was the warm and attentive staff. I would not hesitate to stay at DC Lofty in the future. The only draw back is the absence of private rooms. But if you want to stay in a clean and comfortable place at a great value and meet warm and friendly individuals than stay at DC Lofty. Peter Mantello

As the hostel had just opened when we stayed, bathrooms were not very clean, and we had to wait til 10 pm to had a bed. However, the staff is nice and everything is new.
