Here are some hostels in DC:

I haven't been to those hostels, but you can search for reviews on sites like,, and


I just reserved a bed in a four-person, co-ed room at the HI/AYH hostel, and think it would be great if three other Drupallers could fill the room. :) Anyone?

I'm thinking about it. I'm just now looking into places to stay, so I'll want to find out a lot more about this hostel.

Couple Questions:
- What are the dates that you have the room booked?
- Can you point me to some trustworthy reviews of the hostel?

1) I'm checking in on 3 March and checking out on 7 March. It's not necessary for us to coordinate our departures, though, since they'll just put other people into the room as each of us leaves. I think we'd need to coordinate our arrival in order to claim one room for a unified group of four, though.

2) I don't know how trustworthy the reviews are, but the reviews collected by Google are a good place to start. This link worked for me, and here's the Yelp page.

Reviews and have reviews of all the hostels.

I already booked DC Lofty otherwise would consider HI.

I just looked at the dc lofty site, and from what I can tell, you have to book for a month minimum. Did you book it for a month? If I wanted to stay there for the week of drupalcon, how much would that cost me?


That looks new. I think I booked for 10 days. I'm going to check with them to make sure they're still a hostel.

DC Lofty said they still have short-term stays, but you have to book it through

Hey hey- DC Lofty! I'm booked there too. Anyone else?

I am staying at DC Lofty as well!

Will have a car for those who are interested in car pooling to the Venue, though it is very close. I will be arriving on Sunday for anyone that may like to hook up and do some sightseeing! Here is my phone number - 615-440-1915 / twitter username tmgstudio .

Look forward to meeting everyone!


I'll be at DC Lofty on the 2nd.

Just booked at Lofty from the 3rd through 6th. Location's not terrific (I'd prefer a shorter walk to the Conv. Ctr) but the price is great and it's good to know other Drupalistas will be there.

Hey, David. Shivan just reserved a room by phone, and was told that he'd be put in "my" (i.e., the Drupaler) room -- all he had to do was give my name (Tom Geller). We'll see what happens when we actually show up, but that's a good start.

So -- if anyone wants to make it an all-Drupaler room, that's what to do! Cheers,


Just a quick tip. I tried making a reservation online at but it kept saying the rooms were full during the drupalcon period. When I called in, I was able to make a reservation with no if you don't get through online, try calling.

I'm staying there as well, though I'm booked in a 10-bed room starting the Wednesday as I arrive early that morning. It would be awesome to meet up with others; I wonder how many those staying that week are part of the conference?


I have a great comtemporary house in DC metropolitan. It a much better stay compare to hotel if you travel as a group.

It does look nice! But I like the idea of being only two blocks from the convention center. :)

I can fully recommend William Penn house for some very inexpensive but comfortable lodging. It's nothing fancy, rooms are shared with bunk-beds, but it has a comfortable living room and dining space, a great and friendly staff, and it's fairly close to the Union Station metro.
Best of all, it's run by Quakers and was a home base for many during the civil rights movement. If you're looking for inexpensive, it's definitely worth taking a look. and have reviews of all the hostels.

Thanks Jennifer!

I got a great hostel two blocks from the venue.

Just to let you know: I'm giving up on the idea of trying to get Drupalisto/as in a room together at the youth hostel -- it's too difficult. (In fact, I might be staying elsewhere for at least one night.) See you at the con!
