Duo Nomad was a unique experience in my life. I had the chance of knowing USA culture. I can't even count how many cool people I met. Tijaani was a great co worker. Amira and Ellen where good too. The work it´s not that hard and the schedule it´s fair. You can use common areas and cook your food. Really well located and close to New York. Unfortunately I had to go back for a family emergency. But it was an amazing experience!

My experience in Duo Housing was very good, fun, the Staff was very kind, Ellen, Rafael. the host AZ and Sasha always willing to help me and solve doubts, (Thanks for the Christmas present and special Christmas and New Year dinners, I felt at home) the work is easy, the hostel has a good location, it is clean and safe.
I improved my English, and made good friends. thanks AZ for giving me this opportunity, you are the best host with the best energy ever.
I learned a lot from all the culture and places in Washington DC. I would go back :)

It was amazing! I really work hard but i learned a lot with the guys. The manager is so smart, and you can learn just watching how to manage the business. There we had a private staff's room, some food, 2 days off and if you like, party everyday. I really enjoyed my trip! Thanks Duo Housing, AZ, William and all of the staffs i have meet there!

Great place to work, amazing location and an even better environment. There is always something to do or somewhere to go in Washington, DC. The hosts are great, responsible, friendly and willing to listen and help at any time. The staff currently working here is awesome (that includes ME) so you will definitely feel like home.
