U Street Hostel

A hostel with a central location in Washington, DC. Housing option for travelers, interns, international and local students in a dorm-style setting. We strive to be the number one destination for DC, with our location on the historical U street corridor, on the same block as one of the metro stops as well as bars, and restaurants all around us! We are looking for a minimum of 1 months+ commitments from anyone, who would like to apply. The position usually available is part-time working at the front desk checking people in, looking after the hostel during the shift and/or cleaning up, performing housekeeping, and actual cleaning, and taking people out once a week to see DC/bars/clubs/etc.

Volunteers can expect to have comfortable accommodations of 4 people per rooms in nice rooms, working part time hours, in exchange for checking guests in, leading a few events per week, and cleaning up the hostels; with locations right in the center of DC.

In the U Street Hostel everyone is super nice. As soon as I got there I felt welcome. I was shown where to find everything.
As a traveler I worked there as a housekeeper. The work is great, we had to work 4 hours on 4 days.

Working at U Street Hostel was enjoyable and gave me enough free time to explore the city. Location was perfect for walkability and access to public transportation. I started off with housekeeping, but filled in the role of reception when a staff member was out for a month. It was an adjustment learning the system, but nothing too challenging to learn and overall my duties were easy to complete. Unfortunately, I had to leave early due to a family emergency and Tom and Paul were very understanding of my situation. Good place to volunteer and a great way to experience Washington D.C. :)

This was my first traveling experience with Worldpacker and I loved it. The work was super easy and there was a lot of time to explore DC. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about it!

The hostel in itself is amazing. It's very clean and the the work and tasks are easy. However, I experienced a lot of abuse from a receptionist that goes by Dee at this job. He asked me out 5 times and I refused each time. After that he began being controlling and verbally abusive calling me "crazy" and "a fucking child." I reported him right before I left for fear of retaliation. Luckily Tom was receptive to what I said. He was predatorial and this made the experience uncomfortable for me. Hopefully he is disciplined accordingly or else he will most likely continue to engage in the behavior.
