LONELY PLANET REVIEW

"Like people, open spaces and new experiences? Then you're a prime candidate for a Loftstel stay, which caters to young college students, while you're in town. Owner and run by Jeff Pan, Loftstels are huge, prime lofts turned into one big happy share, with bunk beds, communal bathrooms and kitchens, and all the amenities of home: Wi-Fi, laundry, TV, and backyard gardens often used for barbecues and parties. Although Loftstels cater to those staying weeks or months, they've also got cheap daily rates available, from $16 to $50. Both locations are a quick 15-minute subway ride. Loftstel also takes reservations through its page on Facebook."

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It's a great place for students or for someone who is looking for a temporary accommodation in DC.

1. You should watch out your personal belongs. One of my roommates lost $100 in the first day he moved in.

2. 4 double-deck beds and 8 people in each room. The space for each person is too small. You cannot even sit straight on your bed if you sleep in the lower deck.

3. It has free wi-fi. Very good.

4. $10/day is very affordable for poor people like me. I enjoyed my stay in this hostel.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Cool hostel. Nothing to complain about really. Comfortable beds. The air in the room got quite thick when all beds were occupied though. And I'd say that calling it next to the subway is a truth with modifications. You have to walk a few blocks, but no, it's not that far so it still is convenient. So, all in all, I would definitely recommend Loftstel!

The staff and guests are nice, and I did enjoy my stay. Unfortunately the way the place is advertised seems intentionally misleading. The ads you'll read on craigslist or facebook seem to intentionally show a price much less than the actual one. After a few weeks there I started to see bite marks which I originally thought were just mosquito's or something. My doctor eventually found that it was scabies.

Don't let yourself be desperate enough for a place to do to yourself. I did not feel it was not worth it.
