    International Student House of Washington DC: what do users think?


    Penny: This place was terrible and overpriced, I had to move out after a few weeks. The rent price included 2 meals per day, but the food was so bad. I often had to eat out; management was very very slow in addressing residents issues, and the Wi-Fi is only strong in some part of the building
    Response: Thank you for having stayed with us and for sharing more details about your experience. We're sorry to hear about your experience with us. We appreciate the feedback and will look into how we may be able to improve some of the issues you raised.

    Aman Kumar: Experience: double for a month in Van Slyck hall during the month of September Pros: Relatively affordable Food (breakfast and dinner) Proximity Kind staff and students Shared supplies Group events Democratic in terms of menu selection Cleanliness for bathrooms is pretty decent (shared) Quiet, limited noise issues Cons: Poor responsiveness from management Initially sneaky fees (application ($50 one-time), linen ($75, one-time), resident services ($85, one-time) Overcrowded shared fridges Quality of food is highly variable Wifi is close to absent in some rooms including the one I lived in Breakfast is later than ideal (0 food available at 6 AM) Mismatched furnishings in rooms Residents can be temperamental Several laundry machines do not work (cold setting, laundry comes out hot) Only one microwave for warming food Yes I understand it is dorm style living. Doesn't mean you should lower your expectations so steeply.

    Varsha Thebo: Highly, highly recommend this place to all the international as well as domestic students and/or young professionals who find themselves in DC. You’ll feel right at home!

    Alessandro Lumina: I've been living at ISH for a couple of months during an executive university Summer program on 2009, great place and great people!

    Samuel Breslow: I stayed at ISH-DC starting in summer 2018 and had a wonderful overall experience. LOCATION (5/5): Dupont Circle is a fantastic neighborhood — it's safe and pleasant with tons of food options, a very central location, and easy transit access. The metro stop is about a five minute walk from ISH-DC, plus there's a Capital Bikeshare station right outside the door. COMMUNITY (5/5): ISH-DC has a strong community, and it's very easy to get to know other residents through the meals, occasional events, and group outings arranged in the WhatsApp channel. If you enjoy interacting with people from differing backgrounds, you'll love it. I'd guess around a third of residents are domestic during the summer, and less than that during the academic year. Almost all residents are in their twenties. PRICE (4/5): D.C. isn't cheap, especially in a neighborhood like Dupont Circle, but my understanding is that ISH-DC is very reasonably priced. Consider also that you'll be saving some money on food compared to living elsewhere (see below). ROOM QUALITY (3/5): I stayed in Marpat Hall, which is a short outside walk away from the main building. The rooms are fairly old, and look/feel a little quirky and dusty, but they're perfectly satisfactory and (crucially) air-conditioned. More recently, I stayed in Van Slyck Hall, which has a more modern but less homey aesthetic. Generally, maintenance issues are addressed reasonably quickly. Most rooms are doubles, and there's a waiting list for the singles. COMMON FACILITIES (4/5): ISH-DC's main building is a gorgeous tudor-style mansion. (You can check it out on Google Street View.) There are several great common areas, including a library with a TV, game room, and exercise room. The main hall is straight out of Hogwarts. The laundry is free, although there aren't always enough washers/dryers to go around, and they sometimes break down. The house lacks adequate facilities for personal food preparation, as there is a microwave but no kitchen available to residents. The communal refrigerators are overcrowded and unclean, and the cleaning staff often remove food that has not yet gone bad. FOOD (5/5): ISH-DC provides free breakfasts and dinners every day from Mikko, a local Nordic restaurant. It's a great perk that helps reduce living costs and brings the community together. The food is high quality (not the same as a restaurant, but much better than the old Sodexo services), and the Nordic elements (e.g. lingonberry jam) are fun. Coffee, tea, and milk are available at all hours. It's possible to order late meals, but this needs to be done by 4 p.m. POLICIES (4/5): Packages and mail are all handled conveniently at the front desk, which is staffed 24/7 by a resident (someone you'll probably know). Some house policies are frustratingly restrictive, though. For instance, visitors are not allowed after 10 p.m., and if you have a friend visiting D.C., they cannot stay with you unless you arrange it days in advance and pay $75 per night.

    Irène Hu: ISH is definitely the best place to stay if you want to meet incredible and engaged young people from around the world, with nearly a hundred residents, you cannot but find friends with who you will share so much. I first intended to stay only a couple of months at ISH as I didn't know any one in DC, make some friends and then move out in a flatshare..but no, I stayed the full length of my one-year in DC. Just could not leave the community. Staff members are devoted and doing their best to make our living at ISH a great experience. And it definitely was for me!

    P B: ISH is a great place to live, and I would highly recommend it. I lived here for two years (June 2014- August 2016) and enjoyed my stay. Ultimately, the resident experience is what you make of it. If you are excited about living with around 100 young professionals from all over the world, this is a great place for you. - The People: By far the best benefit to living here and you will make connections. Think tankers, international scholars, visiting professors - ideas are well represented here. I made many lifelong friends all over the world, went on road trips and vacations, went out to classical concerts and operas, went for evening dinners, and took advantage of everything historical and culture DC has to offer. It's nice to be around people who always want to do something, and you will not get lonely. - The price: It's unbeatable for the location. For $1,100 - $1,600 a month, you get a room in one of the best neighborhoods in downtown DC, food, utilities, maintenance, and resident activities included. You will not find better. Trust me, I looked. - Booking: You can book for a minimum one month stay and can book month to month. That flexibility is crucial if you're trying to extend your stay in the US. - The Staff: The staff and maintenance are all welcoming, warm, and sincere people. When problems arose, they were addressed properly, professionally, and promptly. - The Facilities: Since Google came in and took 360 panoramas of the house, you can get an idea of what the communal areas are like (not the case when I applied). - The Rooms: Some rooms are nicer than others. If you aren't comfortable living in a somewhat small room with others, you may not want to live here. Marpat (the men's hall) is essentially dormitory style living and is in need of updates.

    Boban Markovic: This place definitely deserves more credit! I lived at ISH for two semesters and it was one of the best experiences I had. If you are seeking housing at the great location, don’t have time (or don’t know how) to cook, prefer international crowd to mingle, discuss global issues and hit the bar on the weekend, this place is for you. The location of the house is unbeatable. You can easily reach almost any part of DC metro are from Dupont Circle. World-famous institutions with great speakers and events are just around the corner (Brookings, Carnegie Endowment, German Marshall Fund, AEI, Johns Hopkins SAIS…). When it comes to restaurants, this area provides everything from upscale dining, casual seating, take-out, to 3am jumbo slice pizza (i.e. Duccini’s). The neighborhood is probably the safest in DC, LGBT friendly, with a lot of international people, young professionals, and plethora of cultural events. Public pool, tennis courts etc are not far away. You can enjoy a morning run, read a book or sip coffee on the ISH patio or in the library, or hit the bars and indulge in the nightlife at the U and 14th Street, just a few blocks away. When it comes to facilities, ISH buildings are old, but in a solid shape. The main building is a Tudor style mansion with dining hall, TV room, library, patio, great hall, and the residence area. It looks like Hogwarts! Van Slyck and Marpat Hall are built later, very simplistic, but still a good living area. Rooms are warm in the winter and there are AC units or central HVAC in all rooms. Common areas are clean and well maintained by the support staff, but the cleanliness of your room depends on you. It is a true convenience to wake up in the morning or come in the evening and have a hot meal. While food is not the best in the world (this is not a hotel or your mom’s kitchen), it is pretty good. There are usually two dishes, vegetarian option, salad bar, soup, desert, coffee, tea,… plenty to choose from. Now, the monthly price varies between $1,300-$1,650 per room, depending if it’s a single or shared room. This includes room, food, use of the common facilities and all events. Also, if you stay a bit longer you can work at the front-desk for a few hours every week and save some money. Good luck finding studio (without food) for this price in the neighborhood! The best part of ISH are people. We organized a variety of events, traveled on the weekends, went out together, had movie nights, cookouts, Halloween party, attended a bunch of fancy events with Congressmen and Ambassadors visiting the house. Alcohol is not allowed in the common areas, but having a few drinks in your room with friends before going out is totally ok. Again, this is not a hotel so don’t expect a queen-size bed, etc. It is a student dorm. For your money, you get decent housing, food, great facilities for common use, great location, safe neighborhood and opportunity to make friends worldwide and enjoy yourself. I strongly recommend it to students and interns! ISHers will become your DC family.

    Roman Ginzburg: My review is bit dated since I stayed here in 2004 for a year and summer of 2008. I had a wonderful experience and met incredible ppl at ISH. Things have changed since, but would still recommend a stay to anyone new to DC.

    Claudia Li-Ting You: For foreign students and interns, this is the best house and family that you will have if you stay here. I am an ISH alumni, and I love this place and all the friends that I met here.

    Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH): what do users think?


    Liliana Santana: Absolutely stunning, You know I am an allumni of Savannah College of the Arts and Design along with attending Liberty University. They have stoves for us, trash cans, beds, dishes, closets and the most coziest living that reminds me of home. I love it here. It is sound proof. My room came with a T.V. for my housing and I get free wifi. We are in the center of the Capitol where all the magic happens. I get to sit in on hearings, make history, tour the museums, see the guard of the tomb, and speak mandarin in China Town. They are one of the most affordable school housing to attend. With rates as low as 4257 dollars. I must say that I have been in more expensive housing situations. As a soldier, I truly believe it is housing friendly to me. I get to run in to other soldiers in senate hearings and be apart of the armed forces committee which is fun. I get to see things that soldiers don't witness. My hopes are to find a place like this in the future and that I am successful in everything I do. And I hope that other students find out that they can make their wishes come true!
    Response: Liliana, we greatly appreciate that you took the time to share your positive review. WISH will continue to strive to offer the best residential experience in our intern-only student housing in and around Capitol Hill.

    BJ: Do not live in the cheapest option here. You will get stuck paying overpriced rent for what is basically a studio apartment that you share with 3 other people. I lived on the top bunk and I felt like I was at summer camp, and not in a good way. The apartment was outdated, not kept clean, and the elevator was always broken. We didn’t even have an oven or stove; we had to use the toaster oven if we wanted to cook anything. The apartment they show online has a table for sitting, but most apartments don’t have that unless you’re lucky. There were two desks to be shared between four people and getting ready for work in the morning is a nightmare with the tiniest bathroom and closet you’ve ever seen. Also, they say your deposit is refundable, but we were only refunded half due to some fine print that says they keep $300 for “administrative fees.” I know some people who lived in the nicer apartments that enjoyed their experience, but I can’t even imagine what they were paying because our rent was already outrageous as is for the cheapest option. Also, I’m sure they’ll reply to this post saying “I wish you would’ve reached out sooner to resolve your concerns” or whatever garbage they say to make this place look better. There is no resolving the fact that WISH is a scam to profit off of people who don’t do enough research before moving to the city. Look elsewhere or hate your living situation for months like I did.
    Response: Hi Brooke, Thank you for sharing your comments. Our records indicate that you stayed with WISH 2 years ago, and we are just learning of your concerns today. It saddens us to learn about your grievance for the first time on this post. WISH is committed to providing our residents the best internship experience in DC. We have always maintained transparency in our housing fees, which can be found on our website and in multiple email communications with applicants. We do sincerely apologize for any miscommunication in the reservation process and that the accommodations did not meet your expectations. We do hope that you had a good internship experience in 2018, nonetheless.

    Emily Tarantini: I stayed in WISH's one bedroom/4 roommates housing option for 10 weeks during fall 2018. Overall, my experience was fine, but I think that largely depended on the extremely positive relationship I had with my roommates whom I had never met before. I realize that I was very lucky with this while others in WISH weren't. The housing itself was fine-- things were older but they worked, the place itself was generally clean, and I knew what I signed up for with 4 roommates in such a small space. Two times our toilet had issues and it was repaired by WISH right away. WISH respected our privacy and always let us know at least one day in advance of a room check. The excellent location on Capitol Hill was unbeatable and this is mostly why my review is getting 4 stars. The reason it is not getting 5 stars is because of the price. I paid way too much for the accommodations I was given, although I will admit it does seem tough to find something better for such a short period of time. In the end, I would stay with WISH again if I had to, but I would look elsewhere first.

    —————-: ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I see some of the negative reviews and it's interesting how they all came at the same exact time out of nowhere, and also leave negative reviews at the same companies across the nation. Makes me wonder if someone hired them to do so, and the accounts appear to be fake. From my personal opinion, the staff is so kind and helpful. They consider placing you in the best housing option based off of where your internship is located at in DC (for the best and most manageable commute), as well as other preferences such as number of roommates. I live at the Congressional Apartments which are located right next to the Supreme Court building and Capitol Hill. Perfect location! They weren't kidding when they said I'd be right on Capitol Hill. The events are my favorite part of choosing WISH. I love meeting other interns across DC while attending the tours, guest speakers and other fun events WISH hosts. I plan on staying with WISH through future internship opportunities.
    Response: Thomas, thank you for sharing your positive experience with us and we look forward to having you at back at WISH during your your future internships. WISH is committed to providing the ultimate DC internship experience and we’re happy that you've had such a wonderful time during your stay with us.

    Margo Berends: Overall I had a positive experience living in WISH housing. I interned in DC the summer of 2013 and lived at The Congressional. I enjoyed meeting other student interns and attending the events that WISH offered such as a visit to the State Department, a young professionals career panel, and a welcome dinner. The location really can't be beat and having a furnished place to live with laundry on site is immensely helpful. WISH housing is obviously very pricey. I had friends who were able to find much cheaper places to live by sub-leasing from students at American or Georgetown. But, you get what you pay for with WISH -- a great location, a safe place to live, all amenities included, and guaranteed housing without the stress and hassle of hours of searching. With all that being said, I did have a couple of minor problems during my stay in WISH housing. When I first moved in, the toilet in my apartment didn't work and it wasn't fixed for two days. During the hottest week of the summer the air conditioning in the building broke and it wasn't fixed for at least a week. Overall, I would recommend WISH housing to student interns, especially those living in DC for the first time.

    JA Molloy: Episodic water quality issues (yellow/brown with rust flecks), about which many of my fellow interns shared their concerns. Nothing was done except to pass on the blame and obfuscate. They spend a lot of money on optics and evidently far too little on the the things that matter. Very pretty lobby, very nice receptionist, but the leadership is clearly lacking and, since they get our money up front and keep a large portion of the security deposit for “administrative costs”, there is little incentive for accountability. Will be urging my university to switch their housing.

    Brianna Mbog: This is the worst housing I have ever had. My parent paid way to much for what I was provided. I lived in a tiny apartment with three girls. We lived in one room with two sets of bunkbeds and we were required to share one closet. There were roaches, the kitchen was tiny and the pots, pans and dishes were either hard to clean or broken. The first week we were told that somehow a woman had entered our building. WISH also allowed three strangers into our apartment without our knowledge or permission and we had all of our personal belongings out. One day my roommate came home and our backdoor was wide open. When I called to make them aware of this, Dan said he would look into it and get back to me and he never did. Dan was never helpful and quite rude. If you want good housing in DC I recommend The Washington Center. It is a beautiful building with security and only two people per room in a four person apartment and the other students are nice and welcoming and it makes it easier to make friends. The apartment I stayed at was located at 311 3rd Street NE.

    Camryn Main: I have had a great experience living with WISH. Having a fully furnished house and kitchen was super helpful and anytime I needed another pot or pan they delivered it upon request. Maintenance came on the same day as the request in most cases. I loved having 3 roommates and events to meet others at.

    Kelly Reed: I lived in WISH housing this past summer in an apartment building within a five minute walk from the Capitol South metro station. The neighborhood surrounding my apartment was primarily families and I felt very safe. The apartment that I stayed in was a triple so there were three people to one room which was of course cramped but it made the rent more affordable. The living room and kitchen were both decently sized however. One of the primary reasons I chose to live in WISH housing was that the apartment came furnished, the kitchen came fully stocked, there was laundry in the building, and the lease dates were more flexible than other housing options I had looked at. My apartment was also cleaned several times throughout the summer courtesy of WISH which was another perk. Living in WISH housing made moving to DC for the summer an easy and seamless process and I would recommend them to others.

    Kelsea Rossi: I lived in WISH Folger Park which is about a 5 minute walk to the Capitol South metro stop and a 10 minute walk to all of the House office buildings. Neighborhood was safe and there are a lot of restaurants within walking distance. WISH was very helpful anytime we had an issue with the apartment. Our shower wasn't draining properly and the same day that we called to have it fixed, someone came out, fixed the drain, AND cleaned our entire shower. Apartment building had laundry and utilities included. Overall, it was a great experience and I recommend it to any students/interns who needs a place in DC for a few months.

    The Washington Intern Housing Network: what do users think?


    Kerry Green: I have been pleased with the WIHN experience. The staff promptly addresses any issues and really work to answer questions. The location is amazing and convenient, with Union Station just a quick walk and the Giant grocery store nearby. For convenience, the location cannot be beat. The kitchen is decently stocked with utensils and cookware, although it varies a bit from apartment to apartment. The mattress is comfortable enough. Amenities at Senate Square are nice, although I really just used the screening room and the rooftop. The apartment is nice and roomy for multiple people, although there is some mild to moderate "wear and tear" on the floor and furniture. That is why I gave it four stars. For an inexpensive and safe location, this is a great option! I will recommend it to other interns.

    Benjamin Herron: Please stay away from this company at all costs. I stayed with this housing network from September to December and every month we got bills taped to our door of the owner of WIHN owing the building thousands upon thousands of dollars. With a week left in my stay, I had to move apartments because the building(that WIHN never paid for us to live there) found out that WIHN was leasing out the apartment to other people. My roommates and I were only given 3 hours to move out. This company is disgusting and untrustworthy. They take your money and then do not pay any of the buildings you stay at. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THEM.

    Denise Anderson: My stay with WIHN has been great and extremely convenient! The neighborhood surrounding Senate Square is great and there are a lot of restaurants and grocery stores within a walking distance. The apartment is furnished beautifully and the kitchen has all the appliances that you could possibly need. Randy has been especially accommodating and was always just a phone call away. Overall, I greatly enjoyed my stay at Senate Square and all the amenities it provided.
    Response: Thank you for the kind words Denise. Come back and see us anytime. Best of luck in your future endeavors! - Team WIHN

    Kaleb Kelsheimer: The WIHN was perfect for my stay in DC. Not only is the apartment pristine and conveniently located, but the staff is as helpful as they come! They foster a tight knit, family like community that made my stay comfortable and enjoyable... not to mention they have the best maintenance staff in the game! 10/10 would recommend to any Intern coming to the Hill!

    breanna stoesz: There were many issues in my apartment. Having 7 girls in a two bedroom apartment is wild to start with, then we only had one working toilet for much of my stay. Our dishwasher didn't work when we moved in and had to be replaced. Our freezer constantly leaked water on the floor, and when maintenance came, they were unable to fix it and left the pooling water there. The place had broken chairs and many lights that did not work. They kitchen was poorly stocked and didn't even any kitchen towels. Luckily, it was in a nice apartment building that had a pool, gym, theatre room, and business center, but those really were the only redeeming qualities of my experience other than luckily being paired with great roommates. If you reallllly need a place to stay, WIHN will work, but don't expect it to be very nice.
    Response: Hi Breanna, thank you for the feedback. We are always looking to improve the experiences of our residents. However, The WIHN does not have any two bedroom floor plans in our portfolio (the floor plan of the unit in which you stayed is featured here: https://imgur.com/a/Uau6P4r). At The WIHN, we have staked our reputation on 100% transparency with our guests prior to taking their reservation. This is why we used Roomsie to provide you detailed photos of your apartment, images of your actual bedroom with a clear depiction of its configuration along with the names of your roommates who's stays would have overlapped with your own. Your comment surprised us us since you actively selected your bed, bedroom and apartment unit from this listing https://roomsie.com/properties/14 Unfortunately, the reality of property (both renting and managing) is that things do breakdown from time to time. We know it can be very frustrating dealing with an appliance that is not functioning as originally intended. Our technicians visited your apartment to make repairs but needed a control board that had to be ordered and it took 8 days to arrive. These are things we have very little control over but we try to keep to a minimum. It also appears that this is the first time we are hearing about any deficiencies in kitchen supplies. We are always happy to provide supplemental items when requested by our residents but I wasn't able to find a work order or other written request that was submitted for your unit. Thank you for taking the time to bring these items to our attention and we'd be delighted to host you in the future. If you have tips or suggestions that you would have improved your experience please reach out to us directly!

    ShaLexus Danzy: My stay with The Washington Intern Housing Network has been nothing short of amazing! They were so gracious enough to bless me with a relief home when I moved from NC to DC to work on the COVID-19 Response. The staff ensured that my move in was seamless and was helpful with any questions or concerns I had. The house I stayed in was very clean and came equipped with any and everything you would need for an extended stay. Located in an amazing neighborhood and convenient to many different stores and public transportation. I couldn't ask for anything more. I would highly recommend staying with them and would definitely book in the future!
    Response: Than you ShaLexus! We were very happy to be able to assist you and our other first responder residents during this unprecedented health crisis. Thank you for all that you do!

    Kawhi Leonard: WIHN is the best place for interns in DC! Randy and the staff are so helpful and responsive. Move in was easy and the properties are very nice and clean. Full WiFi, washer dryer, tv, etc. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a nice place to stay while working in DC!

    Zane Boyer: My brother recently stayed with WIHN for his spring internship at the United States Senate and he absolutely loved the experience. The rooms had plenty of space and were very well maintained. The apartment building was centrally located and allowed him to quickly and easily get to work. It was also in a great location for finding top notch restaurants and other activities.

    sophia: I had a great experience staying at the Washington Intern Housing Network! The apartment was beautiful and furnished completely, all while being spacious enough for multiple roommates. The service here has been amazing as well, especially Randy who has been very accommodating.
    Response: Sophia, you were a pleasure to host. Please come back and see us anytime.

    Peyton Weber: This is my second summer using the WIHN to find convenient, safe, and spacious intern housing. I've had friendly roommates both times, which made for fun summers in D.C. The apartments are beautiful and are fully furnished. The location is great, as I was able to walk to my internship on Capitol Hill in under 15 minutes. Union Station is also a short walk away, as well as Giant supermarket.

    College Hall: what do users think?


    Tyler Davis: Living in College Hall South has been a wonderful experience. The management is always extremely helpful to residents in need. The rooms are very spacious and the building is overall cleanly. I highly recommend College Hall South to students pursuing housing on Howard University’s campus.
    Response: Hi Tyler, We appreciate your positive review about your recent experience with us! We hope to be of service to you again in the future. Best wishes, College Hall North/South

    Brianna Bennett: College Hall is a great establishment! The staff is professional, kind, and goes above and beyond to assist its residents. The location is convenient and the amenities such as the laundry room, lounges, and recreation room make for a comfortable and fun stay. I've had the pleasure of staying in both College Hall South and College Hall North on numerous occasions and was duly impressed.
    Response: Brianna Bennett, thank you for your kind review; we are happy to pass along your comments to the team here at College Hall North/South! We hope to be of service to you again in the future. Best wishes, College Hall North/South

    Niambi Smith: College Hall dormitory is a safe, clean, and friendly place to reside. There are cool amenities that every resident has access to such as the recreational room, fitness center, on-site laundry facility, vending machines, technology center, and beyond. As a resident, you'll enjoy your stay.
    Response: Hi Niambi Smith, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us at College Hall North/South. We're happy we could meet your expectations!

    Daphne Christopher: After reading the reviews, I certainly hope that Howard University is taking the concerns of the students seriously. Parents are sacrificing to send their kids to the Best HBCU, we are also expecting the best in their housing situation. That being said, when we know better we do better. The students deserve to be respected. Please allow them to concentrate on their academics.

    Kimberly Monroe: My stay at College Hall was great. The staff was very friendly and always answered questions about the campus and amenities within the building. I definitely recommend anyone to stay at College Hall during their tenure at Howard.
    Response: Hi Kimberly Monroe, we are very happy to have provided you with such a positive experience!

    Ash: Management is unprofessional. When I moved into my 10,000 room for the year old Chinese was left from the semester before. Showers are unbearabley small. Water fountains rarely work. A/C or Heat it's a 50/50 chance you will have it for the duration of your stay. Front door never work, mine as well not have a key card. 9/10 people staying here are funded by parents and they treat parents that come to help kids move out like criminals.
    Response: Hi Ashlee Riggins, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Our goal is to keep our residents safe and comfortable as they excel in their academics. We are disappointed to hear that you are not satisfied with your stay at College Hall.

    Elite Intern Housing LLC: what do users think?


    Lauren Baldwin: My experience with Elite Intern Housing was so great, I stayed 2 seperate semesters! The owners always went above and beyond to make their residence my temporary home and were very accessible in the event I needed anything or had any issues. The location couldn't have been better and I always felt safe within the property. Highly recommend Elite Intern Housing!!

    Rebecca Tyus: I have had a wonderful experience living at one of the Elite Intern Housing's properties. I stayed at the Barrister that is very close to the House office buildings for those interning on the Hill. The property was amazing. The rooms were nice, clean, and well furnished. The kitchen had everything you needed. I had no issues with the property! The other people I lived with were great students also, I had no major problems with anyone. The staff at Elite Intern Housing are also amazing. They were always very prompt in replying to my questions and good at communicating anything that was going on. They have been incredible to work with. I have decided to extend my stay at another property and the staff has been incredible working with me to make that happen and I appreciate all of their help. This was my second time interning in DC. The first time I stayed with another intern housing company, Elite Intern Housing is by far the better choice. Their property locations are perfect no matter where you are interning, the properties are amazing places to stay being well furnished and taken care of, and the staff is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend choosing Elite Intern Housing!

    Hannah Cybart: From my personal experience, I would describe Elite Intern Housing as a great company with personable staff. Their communication with me was always very prompt, and they honestly answered any question that I threw at them. They worked with me to find the most conveniently located property in regards to my internship, offered multiple payment options, and were very cooperative when it turned out that I had to cancel my stay. I would most definitely recommend this company to any undergraduate or graduate students interning in Washington D.C. for an extended period of time.

    Cody Miller: My entire experience with Elite Intern Housing, from booking to check out day, was absolutely outstanding! I found Elite after contacting a few of the other larger and "well-known" intern housing companies in DC, to no response. However, when I contacted Elite, I heard back right away. Their staff was always friendly, professional, and responsive. The property I stayed in was perfect for my needs; Elite had thought of everything an intern would need. From kitchen utensils to laundry detergent and linens, they had it all... The house truly matched the pictures on the website. The house was within walking distance to my internship site and all of the major attractions. And it was very close grocery stores. Nothing was a surprise; everything Elite advertised was exactly what I found upon arrival. On the rare occasion something around the house needed repaired, Elite always sent someone out right away. I have to mention that I rented from Elite this summer during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Elite worked diligently to ensure myself and my housemates felt safe and comfortable. Elite provides monthly cleaning to bathrooms and common areas of their properties. The staff periodically checked in, and updated us if another intern would be arriving. Elite definitely takes pride in the service they provide; I highly recommend Elite Intern Housing to any intern! Elite Intern Housing is by far the best! Worth every penny!

    Quentin Rock: Adjusting to life in a new city can be a difficult task for anyone, especially for college students who are taking on internships. Throughout my time renting from Elite Intern Housing, I can confirm that living accommodations were not part of those challenges! The property is well kept, clean, and above all, functional. Elite Intern Housing is extremely accessible to its renters and has truly made its customers a priority. The property is in a terrific location; just a few blocks from the Capitol South Metro Station, which makes accessing and interacting with the city exceptionally easy. For interns in the House and Senate, the walk to the office buildings is fantastically convenient. Overall my experience renting from Elite Intern Housing has been wonderful. I recommend any college student pursuing an internship in DC to consider their properties as an option.

    Rob Cowan: I stayed at The Patriot property during the fall 2019 semester, and had my best-ever rental experience. I initially decided to stay here because of its great location (walking distance to Capitol Hill, grocery stores on H Street, and Union Station metro). But I was even more impressed with Elite Intern's responsiveness and attention to detail. Elite Intern Housing works hard to put compatible roommates together. They are always available via text and responded same-day to any housing maintenance requests. I highly recommend Elite Intern Housing!

    Jessie Hainley: This year it was really difficult to schedule arrangements when moving to D.C. for the summer, but Elite Intern Housing was so flexible and accommodating! The location was amazing! The housing was great and well taken care of! If you’re interning in D.C. and want a reliable and nice place to live without going through the hassle of dorm housing, I highly recommend Elite Intern Housing!
    Response: Thank you! We realize things were different this year and schedules were changing rapidly as internships made adjustments in response to COVID-19. We are happy to have been able to accommodate you!

    leslie brand: I stayed at the Barrister and highly recommend Elite Intern Housing. Having stayed with another intern company the previous year, I noticed a big difference right away. First, the other place put a lot more people in a small living space that seemed larger until you were all in there together. The other company had as many people in one bedroom as the Elite house had in the entire house. This meant the Elite house stayed much cleaner. Because there was more space to spread out, everyone seemed much more relaxed. It was also easier to stay on a schedule which was important to me because I was studying for test at that time. Another roommate was a student and was able to do all her studying in the house. Finally, I noticed that the Elite staff was able to respond quicker any time we had a question or needed something. All in all, they seemed much more flexible and willing to work with us to help make it a great experience. They seem to fill spots quickly so you need to contact them early on.

    Brooke Hornberger: Elite Intern Housing absolutely deserves and earned all five stars! The best thing about any of these properties is that you get what you see and read, no inaccuracies or deceptions. I was extremely happy with my stay, especially during a very uncertain and unfortunate time in our country. I stayed in the Legislator property during the COVID pandemic and it was the optimal place to be. With working in congress, the many changes in schedules were very difficult for some of my coworkers living further away to handle. I was able to work from home if needed but still be close enough to easily go into the office some days or if I needed to go in last minute for a coworker or to get something from the office it was so easy to do so. The owners are so great and flexible. Even if there was the slightest issue it was fixed instantly. They check in by email and text often and if they need to come by they be sure it is always at the best convenience of the residents. They are so nice to work with and work to make your stay the best it can be. When they say that the apartment is furnished, it is no lie, it most definitely is. I did not have to purchase a single kitchen or room essential. It is such a relief knowing that I could stay here again and not have to worry about moving all of my life essentials in the busy city. I would stay here again and recommend you do too!

    Sam Fodale: Amazing Stay! The staff at Elite Intern Housing were more than helpful by being on call 24/7 to handle any concern I had. The rooms were clean and very spacious. The roommates I was placed with were very cordial and clean. When it comes to location, you could not ask for a better spot on Capitol Hill. Being within walking distance of Union Station for travel and dining, to the scenic views of the Capitol is hard to beat. Also with Capitol police assigned to each corner of the road safety is your last concern. I could not have asked for a better experience throughout my entire stay. I highly recommend this company to anyone seeking housing in the area. 5 STARS ALL AROUND!!

    Olympus Student & Intern Housing: what do users think?


    Kevin & Adama Connors: Very shady business - be aware of bait & switch and building code violations. We signed a lease (which requires full upfront payment) for our son after Yaz sent us photos to choose the style of room. What we got when we showed up in Foggy Bottom was completely different. First, we learned Olympus Housing did not have management rights for the apartment, completely in violation of the lease we signed which stated Olympus had rights to sublease the apartment. A different company held the lease on the apartment, so when we showed up, no one from Olympus was there and the rep for this other company had no idea what room we agreed on with Yaz. My son was put in a small, but reasonable room for the first week, then they abruptly moved him to another apartment, in an interior, windowless room. Because we didn't sign the lease with this other company, Yaz pretended he had no ability to make changes. We now understand this is their scam. They retrofit these apartments, adding extra rooms with no windows, or locking doors, in order to jam multiple people in each apartment. His room was less than 60sqft, had no windows and the walls were made from bookshelves. These are all building code violations, which was confirmed through an inspection by the DC Dept. of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs. It seems Olympus Housing & this other company are tricking summer interns into signing leases, then sticking them into cramped apartments that they cut up into multiple rooms. There were other safety violations (no smoke detectors, mice infestations) and we were forced to move our son to safer apartment. We tried to negotiate with Yaz for a refund however, he refused and is not returning calls or emails. We are still pursuing other means to get our money back. We strongly urge caution when dealing with Olympus.

    Stephanie D'Amico: If I could give no stars, I would. The housing itself is fine because the group that actually owns the buildings are great. Olympus Housing subleases many of the properties and charge more. Once you sign the housing agreement, be prepared for NO communication. They are horrible when you need anything. Do not lease from them!! There are way too many options available in the foggy bottom area. Save yourself time, money and a whole lot of stress. Do NOT lease from them.

    Lara Kimber: My daughter used Olympus Housing last summer (2019), while interning in Washington D.C. and we had a great experience! We had looked at other locations, but none had the more modern apartment amenities and space. Every time we needed to contact the staff for getting the lease signed, or maintenance issues, or any questions, we always received a response within 24 hours. The apartment location in Courthouse Arlington was also an incredible spot for her to live over the summer. She never needed a car because everything was within walking distance. A Metro station and multiple restaurants and shops were a five-minute walk, and just a bit farther was a Whole Foods and many more places to eat and shop. The area is incredibly safe and walkable. She rode the Metro to and from work daily. The building was clean, and she always felt safe coming and going. She was roomed with other girls staying in the area doing summer internships, and they all got along well! The furniture was not top of the line, but most of it was as decent as typical dorm room furniture can be. When the microwave stopped working, the apartment maintenance replaced it within just a few days. We would definitely use Olympus Housing again if we ever needed to find intern or short term housing near the Washington D.C. or Arlington area!
    Response: Thank you for your review Lara. Looking forward to see you again at Olympus apartments.

    Christian Soenen: The apartment was clean and conveniently furnished. The location was great, with quick metro transportation into D.C. and the rest of the northern Virginia area. The price was good compared to other D.C.-area housing options, although space in the bedrooms was limited (I stayed in the triple room with two others). All in all, I enjoyed my stay and recommend Olympus.
    Response: Thank you for your review.

    Prashant N.M.: For long-term stay/student/working young adults, I have stayed with them (Courtland Towers) for nearly 3 years (COVID-19 was the reason for me to move). During my stay there, and also after living in a different place in DC, I can easily say that overall there's no other company that can beat the location (close to metro, groceries, 2 stops away from DC, straight bus to Georgetown, etc), price, ease-of-stay (very well maintained), fully furnished with WM, Dryer and Dishwasher in-unit, and well-maintained leases (through DocuSign, you get a "renewed" one every time). If one doesn't mind sharing bedroom (as a student I had no problem and I also had very nice roommates, most of the time) this place is made for them. The only downside I was worried about is due to this being an intern housing too there might be many roommate changes, which might match you with a bad roommate (not a bad person just not a good roommate) but you can sort that out with the management, in worst cases, as they are very helpful. For short-term stay/interns, Look no further, I would say.

    Megan B: I was at Olympus Housing for temporary apartment living during an internship. It was the most affordable option and the units were coveniently furnished. I was paired with with awesome roommates as well! I had positive interactions with employees, especially Yaz, who helped me throughout my move-in and move-out. They were very kind and flexible to my needs. I recommend Olympus Housing for students on a budget heading to DC for an internship.
    Response: Hi Megan, thanks for the awesome review!

    Jane Jones: This company provides a good option for short term rentals. The apartments are clean and well furnished. However, please be aware that the 'roommate matching' consists of putting like genders together. The experience could be much improved by actually doing some simple personality and demographic matching like putting those over age 21 together and/or or not putting night owls with those who go to bed early.
    Response: Thank you Jane. We will update our matching service for future interns

    Maura Lizza Espina: Stayed in their DC property for the Spring 2020 semester. Overall experience was highly satisfactory, and while there are some hiccups in terms of payment during check-in everything was accommodated as long as you properly communicate with them. Location is excellent, unit is fully furnished with monthly cleaning provided. Excellent choice for students and professionals.

    A Esin KILINÇHAN: Location is great - within 5min walking to the metro station, which apparently is the most convenient transport spot in Arlington. Also, the staff would make extra effort to accommodate my needs during my stay. Super clean apartment to feel like you are home.
    Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay with us!

    Steven Im: Decent housing experience with reasonable price. Plus, all the housing apartments are very close to the Washington DC metro stations so students and interns will have an easy way to locate themselves.I would definitely recommend Olympus Housing.
    Response: Thank you for your review

    Varsity on K: what do users think?


    Audrey Yang: Ceiling leaks and drips. Ceiling literally fell down one time. Homeless people sleeping in the lobby often. Hot water was gone for over a week (thanksgiving time). Internet outages all the time. Packages are always missing/stolen. Handicap equipment broken most of the time. Elevator is out all the time. Incredibly high fees and utilities. If you care about quality of life, don’t live here.
    Response: Audrey, this is worrying to hear and certainly doesn't sound like the comfortable, safe, and pleasant living environment we strive to maintain for our residents. We will share this feedback with the appropriate staff to ensure we're doing everything we can to that end, but we also encourage you to call us at 2028640420 so we can address your concerns directly. We'd like to provide whatever assistance we can. Thank you.

    Ethan Benn: Bria, the leasing manager, gave me a great tour of the Varsity on K! The building looked great and modern, as did the rooms and the amenities (a study space, gym and event space). She did a great job of answering my questions and reaching out afterward.
    Response: Ethan, we're thrilled that Bria was such an asset throughout your tour! Thank you for the kind words and for taking the time to share your feedback - we hope to see you back at Varsity on K again soon! Be well.

    Katie Thompson: (My friends live in this building, I do not). Varsity on K is such a disgusting apartment complex. Management is terrible (even compared to other questionable apartment complexes in the area). On several occasions, I have seen homeless people sleeping in the hallways. I have also seen blood and feces in the elevator on several occasions. It also takes forever to get maintenance requests completed. This building feels unsafe and I feel bad for people stuck in a lease here.
    Response: Katie, this is worrying to read and not the living experience we pride ourselves on. Please get in touch so I can gather some more information and ensure these claims are properly addressed. Thank you, Tyler Bruce - Property Manager - (202) 864-0420

    Lauren Doyle: Every time I walk into this building I feel unsafe. On FOUR occasions I have tried to visit, I've encountered homeless people lounging in the hallway. I'm convinced that management only has notifications on when they get bad reviews on their website, they pay zero attention to people who live here who actually have apartment problems; my friends who live here have been trying to get in touch with the leasing office who have literally hung up on their calls.
    Response: Lauren, we are dedicated to the comfort and satisfaction of our community and I want to ensure that your friends have their concerns heard and properly addressed. Since I am unable to find their contact information from this review, please have them give me a call directly. Best, Tyler Bruce - Property Manager - (202) 864-0420

    Guangfu Su: Bria was very professional and Tyler was very friendly, both of them in the leasing office made my living here better. However, the maintenance guy here was really unpleasant, he was the only one maintenance person, this guy was neither friendly nor professional. First, he had zero will to make friends with you, always acted, talked and walked like he is so proud of him with no reasons, never looked at you when you were in the same elevator or met in hallway even if he was actually very familiar with you, it was so weird. If he was very professional or serious in doing his job, then it was fine for him to ignore resident in life and being arrogant, however, the thing is that he was actually not serious in working, each time you made a request for maintenance, he would complain even more than you and made excuses by pushing all responsibilities for the problems to resident. Also, each time he saw you doing something, he would come to correct you, but all he said were nonsense which I verified afterwards, which means this guy never wanted to actually correct or help you out but just talking nonsense to make him feel good. I felt this guy was often hanging around everywhere inside of apartment for no reasons, not working but just wasting time. I suggest Varsity better fire this maintenance guy, without him Varsity would be a great place to live.
    Response: Guangfu - thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry not all our team members have left the same great impression on you, and I'll certainly address this review internally to ensure we're providing outstanding resident care. If you'd like to discuss this, I also invite you to get in touch with me directly - my email is bria.giboney@bhomstudentliving.com. All the best, Bria Giboney - General Manager

    Isabella Webster: I have never lived somewhere where it was so evident that the property management neither cared for residents nor practiced basic communication with the on site team. The individuals who work in the office and for on site maintenance are wonderful; however, they clearly have no support to actually do their jobs effectively. The internet is out so frequently that I’ve had to upgrade my cell phone plan to include unlimited hot spotting. I’ve regularly had to call out of work or reschedule exams due to internet outages. The tiles in the hallway above my apartment have been leaking water for months. I’ve had maintenance requests queued for repair since my move in inspection six months ago that remain untouched. The heat does not consistently work even in the midst of snowstorms and it seems the only way to get attention for these issues it to write a Google Review (as can be seen by others posted for this property which detail the additional ongoing issues of package/mail theft- which I’ve also experienced for packages totaling well over $300 in only the past six months).
    Response: Isabella, I am sorry to read this feedback. We strive to address the concerns of our residents promptly and effectively, and it is disappointing that this has not been better reflected in your experience. I apologize for the issues you have encountered with your wifi and your heat and would appreciate another chance to speak with you to see what more I can do to help. If you are willing to discuss this further, please give me a call at your earliest convenience. Thank you, Tyler Bruce - Property Manager - (202) 864-0420

    Anna Hip: Our experience working at Varsity on K has been great!. Their team has always been very helpful, by working with them you can learn a lot. We are very thankful to everyone at Varsity for making our working experience unique.
    Response: Anna, thank you for the review! We are so glad to hear that you have enjoyed your experience working with the Varsity on K community. We will be sure to pass on the kind words to the team. Have a great day!

    Gabrielle Picard: The management here is absolutely abhorrent! This management does not answer any resident concerns. I have been in the elevators and seen what I can only imagine to be blood in the elevator. In addition to this there was a dumpster fire in the building and the alarm in my friends’ apartment didn’t go off. Only some alarms went off so I hadn’t evacuated until I smelled smoke and looked and saw people had evacuated.
    Response: Gabrielle, Your frustration is understandable and I apologize for the issues you've raised here that have given you cause for concern. We take our resident's feedback very seriously, and I would like to step in and discuss these matters with you. Please consider giving me a call when you have a moment. Tyler Bruce - Property Manager - (202) 864-0420

    Shaoyi Che: [Long Review Warning] [First part-Professional and friendly staff] It is usually not the amenities or the luxury finishes in an apartment building that make you feel like home. It is the people. I am a GW Law student and I have been a resident here for a year. They do not have a dedicated concierge here, so Claudia and Joy in the leasing office are responsible for all the works beside maintenance. They are the people that make me feel at home in this apartment, and I have never had similar experience before. They always go above and beyond and they really think in your shoes in a very professional and yet friendly manner. They have been extremely helpful. [Problems in the building] I want to address problems I personally encountered and problems I saw in the reviews in two parts. Yes, there are problems in this building but I am still giving it 5/5 because I believe the rating system should be based on comparisons with other buildings in the area. The rent is also an important part to consider. [1]Old Building related issue. The building itself is old and on rare occasions (once a year from my observation) the resident may encounter hard-ware related issues. This year, we had two common area issues. One-week of Hot water shortage and a one-time 3-4 hours elevator shutdown because of a minor flooding issue in the garage. For my unit, the HVAC unit was broken in my unit once and it was replaced after the staff spent effort on trying to fix it. Although we had problems, the management team in this building has always kept us informed and addressed the problem to the best of their capabilities. I was compensated for the hot water shortage. It was not a lot but that at least that shows how the team care about the feeling of residents. Whenever something broke in my apartment, 90% of the time the maintenance staff will come fix it within hours. I live on 11th floor, and two of my friends live on 7th and 5th floor. None of us have experienced rodent issues. [2]Complaints about delayed response from the office. I can't say enough good words about Claudia and Joy in the front office, but I was not surprised when I saw review complaining the office not responding to emails. They are extremely overworked. They do leasing, property management and concierge all by themselves and they simply are not able to reply emails in a timely manner. I would recommend anyone with urgent request to go directly to the office. [Conclusion-you get 100% what you pay for here, hence my 5star rating] All the problems come down to one thing-cheaper rent. I gave 5 star rating because I received what I paid for. A little over 2000 dollars for a nicely finished apartment with a balcony in foggy bottom? I can't ask for more. Although the building itself is old, it was recently renovated and the units are really new and nice. Before I decided to move in last year, I toured 8 different apartments in the foggy bottom area and I have never regret choosing to stay here. Yes, there are apartments with equally nice or nicer units, 24-hours concierge, dedicated property management office and a separate leasing office in a new building in the area. But then you are looking at 1bedrooms starting at 3000+ dollars a month. FYI I toured Westlight Apartment and their 1B is asking for 3700 dollars a month, almost double the price here. Is it really fair to complain old-building issues and lack of 24-hours concierge service in an affordable apartment? I don't think so, unless you are willing to pay 3700 dollars instead of 2100 dollars a month.
    Response: Thank you for your in-depth review of our community, Shaoyi. Your detailed feedback will help prospective residents make an educated decision in choosing their next home, and we're pleased to know you are happy with your decision to live with us. We're glad to hear our team members, such as Claudia and Joy, have made you feel so at home. If there is anything we can do to keep up this level of excellence in the future, please let us know. Best, The Varsity on K Team

    JJ LaBella: We moved our daughter into Varsity on K in May 2017. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this apartment complex, and the staff. The staff, including Wendy and Jasmine, are all wonderful, professional, friendly. The apartments are truly luxurious, not only for students, but for young professionals as well. The kitchens are beautiful, with lots of counter space, cupboard storage, and brand new GE appliances. You have your own washer & dryer within your apartment, making it easy to do your laundry while studying. The building, completely renovated, feels brand new. Everything in it is new, including the common rooms, hallways, apartments, exterior, etc. It is located in a very safe, well lit, residential neighborhood in Foggy Bottom, behind the GW Milken School of Public Health. Walk one block East, look towards your right, and the Lincoln Memorial is visible down the hill. Eight blocks away is the White House, so the security in this area is obviously very concentrated. Georgetown's M Street shopping district is about a 10-15 minute walk. Whole Foods and CVS are less than a 5 minute walk. The building itself is extremely secure and feels very safe. It is very quiet. I have never heard any noise through the walls, or in the hallways at all. The building is impeccably clean and perfectly maintained. The apartments feel quite spacious. The gym is very clean, large, inviting, and has state-of -the-art equipment. There is a large study room and private group study room, as an alternative to walking to/from the library in the cold winter. There is a huge entertainment room with luxurious amenities to entertain your friends. Outside, there is a gorgeous, clean, relaxing area including many tables, chairs, and a fire pit. I have never heard any noise from this. The mail area is clean and offers a Luxor package service. There is a storage room, where you can rent a space to keep your extra things secure. There is a safe, secure garage underneath the building, should you need to park a car. Many of the apartments have private patios, or balconies, and it is nice for us to enjoy breakfast on the patio with our daughter when we come to visit. As parents, peace of mind when we live hours away, is priceless.
    Response: Hey JJ! Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We hope you are having a great week! -Pinnacle Campus Living

    Capitol Hill Stay - Veteran Owned Furnished Housing Temporary Extended Stay Washington DC Since 1997: what do users think?


    Katie Wilkes: I stayed here for a month while house hunting. Fabulous, convenient location to everything you need. One of the best parts about the house is the private little courtyard/patio space out front. Stunning in the springtime. Capitol Hill Stay was attentive and extremely communicative the entire time. The neighbors were also so kind and helpful. But I have to say, it was the sincere thoughtfulness of the people who run this hospitality group that exceeded my expectations. Tragically, I lose my pup of 16 year unexpectedly while here (we were grateful to enjoy many days of gorgeous weather on that patio together). Upon check out and kind conversation with Phil, one of the staff members, the team let me know they had made a donation to a rescue organization in my pup’s honor. It brought me to tears. Stay with them if you can- I don’t think you’ll regret it.
    Response: Thank you for the kind review Katie. We were very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved dog but it makes us happy to know you enjoyed some time together there on the patio. Thank you again for staying with Capitol Hill Stay. Your stay (and others) are what helps us stay in business, pay our staff, cleaners, landscapers, etc, so on behalf of everyone we thank you very much.

    Zach Powell: My wife and I have never been to a big city before. Coming from a small town in Kentucky, we were worried about coming to D.C. However, the owner (Brian) and Louise has been absolutely wonderful! The apartment was in a very safe and very upscale neighborhood. We were able to pay for a secure parking spot as well. Our neighbors were quiet and working professionals (always gone). If there were any questions, someone always answered them promptly via chat or text! I cannot reccomend Capitol Hill stay enough! If we are ever in DC again, we will be staying with them!
    Response: Thanks Zach. It was a pleasure having you. We get a lot of people in from small towns and many later tell us Capitol Hill feels very much like a village within the big city, so it's kindof the best of both worlds.

    ell bee: We recently had the opportunity to stay at one of the John Marshall House units on Capitol Hill. The unit was fabulous - the perfect size for a couple, stocked with everything you could need, and very clean. Location can't be beat - close to everything in the Capitol Hill area and a very safe neighborhood. Property owners were fabulous as well - great communication, and they provided us with helpful suggestions and tips. Would love to stay here again!
    Response: Thank you so much. It was a pleasure having you. Please look us up if you need furnished housing in DC again.

    michelle baum: We stayed at one of their properties in Eastern Market/Capitol Hill neighborhood In D.C in October 2021. They were very responsive and answered all our questions. We were able to have off street parking for a very reasonable price! Unit was beautifully kept, clean and had everything we needed. Quiet neighborhood and great area to have as base for DC travel. Would highly recommend staying with Capitol Hill Stay groups' properties. Support this great veteran owned business!
    Response: Thank you Michelle. It was a pleasure having you. Please don't hesitate to look us up again if you need furnished housing in DC

    Christopher Wagner: I almost don't want to write this because I don't want the competition the next time I look for a place to stay in DC. But everybody's got to make a living and the owners of Capitol Hill Stay have earned theirs, so I have to tell the truth - the place was fantastic. A great location, a great place, detailed and friendly communication from the host, a backyard to relax a bit in and a place to leave the car and not do the DC street parking shuffle. It was like having a dream home in DC and I hope we can luck into it again sometime down the line a bit...
    Response: Thanks Christopher. You stayed in one of my favorite places. Very glad you enjoyed it. Don't hesitate to look us up the next time you need furnished lodging in DC.

    Veronica Thomas: Location! Location! Location! What you sacrifice in size for a studio by the heart of the Capitol, you made up for it with location! The owners were responsive, the place was clean, and we felt very secure! We were driving in from out of town and took advantage of the parking space behind the building and don't regret it! We were able to see our vehicle from our window and access it easily! The neighborhood was quiet and it was a great launching point for our family of four!
    Response: Thank you very much Veronica. It was a pleasure having you. Please don't hesitate to look us up again should you need short term lodging in DC.

    Monika McDermott: Brian and Luis at Capitol Hill Stay are fantastic, as are their properties. We stayed at 823 A st NE, Apt 1, and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean and surprisingly well-appointed. We were there for 5 weeks and the owners were attentive to our every need (not that there were many). We loved the neighborhood - Eastern Market is such a dream to have so close. I highly recommend this small company and their great and interesting apartments. Also, they're pet friendly!
    Response: Thank you so much. We truly appreciate your business.

    Leslie Vargas: My friend and I came to Washington DC for a girls trip to visit her daughter and my son, who is a student there. We loved the apartment from the first second we stepped into as it instantly felt like a home away from home. It is beautiful and well furnished with high ceilings and tall windows. The apartment is immaculate and every detail is attended to, including a coffee pot that makes delicious coffee and quality linens that are so comfortable after a long day of seeing the sites. It is located in a safe neighborhood and is a nice walk to The Eastern Market, independently owned boutiques, restaurants, a CVS and a wine shop. The apartment is so inviting that we decided to cook there one night and it was so convenient that the The Eastern Market is full of lovely fresh vegetables, fresh meats and a bakery. Outside the market were street vendors with quality goods to sell which was so fun to browse. I have found that where you stay can make such a difference in the tone of a vacation and this one certainly did. It was a such a wonderful time and I’m looking so forward to visiting DC with my husband and staying there again.

    Diana Ogarkova: We visited Washington for a tourist trip as a family, and this house exceeded our expectations. It's an impressive historic 3-story townhouse close to Capitol. The location was perfect: the neighborhood is quiet, and at the same time close to everything. We liked that we could get everywhere by walking, at the same time we were away from the city noise. Space: it was nicely decorated with a homely feel and spacious, plenty of shared space and 3 bedrooms. I personally loved the books collection on the 2nd floor living room. Recommended: if you are in Washington and want to feel like a local :).
    Response: Thank you Diana. That was my own home for 15 years, so I absolutely love it when others are happy with their stay there. I miss that house, and my dog really misses the park

    leo sokolskiy: Great place to stay in Washington. Walking distance to the National Mall monuments and museums. Very comfortable and quiet location, parking spot is a great plus if you are driving in. Kitchen has all the utensils as well as washer and dryer. Brian and Luis are very accommodating and responsive.
    Response: Thank you Leo. It was a pleasure having you. Please look us up again when you need furnished housing in DC

    Daniel Odukoya: The applying process was very seamless. Priscilla was very thorough and efficient in making the process easy to follow. She took time to answer any and all questions I had. She modeled excellence and it didn't feel like I was being pressured into doing anything. Great and amazing service!!
    Response: Daniel Odukoya, we're happy to hear you had such a positive experience with our team!

    Jasmine Livingston: I just started here and it's been amazing already. The communication has been so quick and definitely ASK ABOUT THE STUDENT DISCOUNTS FOR THE LEASE! There's so many great opportunities here and the staff, specifically building manager Priscilla has been very helpful making my move here easy and comfortable!
    Response: Thank you again for taking the time to let us know how we did. We hope you have a great day!

    Evan Lynch: I was able to get information and get approved for a lease within three hours of inquiring about a room. Priscilla made the entire process speedy and seamless. I really liked how the process was handled.
    Response: Evan Lynch, we really appreciate your feedback! We hope to be of service to you again in the future. Best wishes, Vie Towers

    Basir Phillips: My daughter was taken advantage with extra fees and what felt like scams to exploit young adults. Without her knowledge, they changed the room she agreed to sublet from another student. Due to that factor she decided not to take the room and found another student to sublet. Now they are trying to charge her $500 for a finding a student to sublet, while she found the student herself. Move in fee, Admin Fee, Amenity fee, Application fee, They are taken advantage of college students to mess up the credit and finances in an effort to exploit students of color in Howard and others in the area. Terrible corporation, beware
    Response: Hi Basir Phillips, we regret to hear that you are displeased with your recent experience with us. Please reach out to us at (301) 637-5552 when you can so we can address this situation directly. Thank you and have a great day.

    Nzinga Temu: Maintenance is really annoying. They simply do not communicate when they are going to enter your home, and they often times don't fix anything or make it worse. It is very annoying to be on an important meeting online and they just come in hollering "maintenance" like they didn't see that I put in the entry notes to call before entering to avoid them coming in when I'm not ready.

    A Sunflower’s Mindset: Do yourself a favor and DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. Management is full of greedy scammers with no customer service skills and has every purpose to take advantage of the students that live there. It is a shame to see a place so corrupt.
    Response: A Sunflower’s Mindset, we regret to hear that you had a negative experience with us, but would appreciate the chance to turn your experience around. Our manager would really like to speak with you more regarding this matter. Please reach out to us at (301) 637-5552. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Tekayah Johnson: Ruendis completed my work order this time. One thing about this complex you have to commend maintenance. The issue is always completed in a timely fashion.

    Da'Vonte Lyons: My stay at the Vie Towers has been great. The leasing staff have been very responsive and helpful, the amenities are great, and I have enjoyed the student-oriented community and environment. Vie Towers central location, its proximity to Howard University, the Metro, stores, and restaurants, is another great feature that has defined my experience. I highly recommend Vie Towers!
    Response: Hi Da'Vonte Lyons, we are thrilled to have provided you with such a positive experience! Thank you again for the great review!

    Carnya Sutton: The Vie towers team work very diligently to make sure my stay here at Vie towers is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I really like its location as it is directly across the street from the mall and near the metro station. It is a very nice apartment with a friendly environment.
    Response: We appreciate your positive review about your recent experience with us!

    Aniyah Taylor: Very safe and convenient place to live. It’s located right across the street from the mall and super close to the metro station. The campus shuttle is great too!
    Response: Aniyah Taylor, we really appreciate your feedback! Thank you again for the great review!

    Washington International Student Center: what do users think?


    Hernán Cortés: I really enjoyed how nice the staff was when I visited. This place is located in a fun strip of the city and one can find plenty to do here. Within the complex of the building, there are rooms to stay as it is a hostel. Cheap price that worked for me, but the spacing was just too restrictive. Plenty of bathrooms, though! And apparently free breakfast if you know when to be up for it.

    Sea: My two star hotel was nicer than this place. Bathrooms were so gross that I didn’t shower my whole trip (gross I know, but that’s how gross the bathrooms were). Kitchen was equally as gross, I chose to eat granola bars instead of eating at the hostel. I couldn’t find the entrance either, I had to ask someone working nearby where it was. She told me it wasn’t nice but it got the job done, and I agree. Would never go there again though.

    Ryan Bamsey: Very good hostel and at a great price! Steve who runs the hostel was very friendly and couldn’t help us enough when it came to losing some luggage. Couldn’t recommend this hostel more!

    Edward Cohen: Mr Steve, is a very kind and funny man. He is very well versed in the history of the area, as well as the history of baseball! The area is perfect if you are looking for food and fun. The hostel has a very warm and homey environment, the staff are incredibly helpful.

    7am nutrition: Please do yourself a favor and don't choose this place to save some bucks. It might very well ruin your trip. The main guy there is just so unprofessional.

    Emily Rueber: Pros -private room's bed was clean and the clothing rack, chairs and desk were clean -location proximity to metro and coffee shops -price Cons -no cleaning materials were made available to clean kitchen surfaces and microwaves (which were filthy). I think it would be easy for them to provide a diluted bleach solution and paper towels to wipe down surfaces with during the pandemic -neither did the bathroom, that I used, did not have any cleaning materials made available to sanitize surfaces -the fridge was packed to the gills so it was hard to find a place to store food -no one was wearing a mask in common areas except for myself and my partner

    Yash Patel: Pros: - Helpful owner (helped me parallel park, call me a day before my booking to work out parking, called me after I left to see if everything was good) - Fantastic hostel location (next to McDonalds, pizza shops, Subway, Starbucks, Seven Eleven, CVS, Bus/Metro Stations, 2 miles from major monuments) Cons: - Super small lockers - Lacks cleanliness - Owner has not updated in description that he is not providing free breakfast for over a year - Owner has also not updated in description about parking problems around the hostel

    Hernan Cortes: Great customer service. Nestled in between shops. A little too cozy as far as spacing. Not bad enough to dock a star.

    Néfertiti Nah: It's a dirty place. That's what I will remember the most, especially the kitchen where we're supposed to eat. It was not a good experience at all. It is also very noisy because of the neighborhood. You have music going on all through the night. There are one or two people among the staff who are nice, but others are not really welcoming. The breakfast is not really what you could call a breakfast so don't get excited about it (frozen bread for instance). I will never stay there again, even though it's cheap.

    Chris Dwan: I've travelled quite a bit and stayed in many hostels and this one is by far the worst. Upon arriving I was initially told that my reservation had been lost which is not surprising as their system seems to consist of three messy notebooks rather than a computer. I was then told that I would have to take whichever bed was free as they are first come first serve, not an issue at all but it was confusing when I asked to switch beds to a lower bunk (after a roommate had checked out) and was told (quite harshly) that I wasn't allowed. The building itself is in desperate need of a thorough cleaning and fresh a coat of paint and on top of this the employees are outwardly rude and standoffish especially the owner. They get some points for the low cost and good location but overall this is an abysmal hostel. I understand that this is meant to be a budget accommodation but no low cost is worth this, you couldn't pay me to stay there again.

    WISH Woodley Park: what do users think?


    Alisha Kalsi: I am currently living in the WISH Woodley park housing for my semester internship, the room is clean, the associates are very helpful, and the location is optimal! Overall, I really enjoy my stay here and plan on coming back at the next opportunity.

    Samuel Breslow: I stayed at WISH at Woodley Park for a semester in fall 2017 and had a negative experience. I would urge anyone moving to D.C. to explore other options and not go with WISH just because it's the first search result. LOCATION: This was the one positive aspect of my stay. Woodley Park is a very safe and pleasant neighborhood, and it's conveniently located with only a short commute to downtown. Everything else was problematic. ROOM QUALITY/MAINTENANCE: The room was advertised to me as having been recently renovated, so I chose it over other cheaper options assuming that it would be in better condition. However, when I arrived, it quickly became clear that the apartment which was rented to me was not yet ready to be lived in. The markings of extremely shoddy/rushed renovation were everywhere, from uneven flooring to paint specks all over the furniture. Furniture such as the sofa was entirely missing, and the bad WiFi reception made it all but unusable. I worked to resolve the fixable problems by emailing WISH, but the response was often intolerably slow. I racked up heavy mobile data charges before the WiFi was fixed. The lack of counter and storage space had become a serious point of contention between my housemates by the time our island counter was installed, months after move-in. The poorly installed heater in my room, which woke me up countless times in the middle of the night with an extremely loud rattling, took nearly a month to fix despite multiple follow up emails. I could go on. COMMUNITY: I'm a very social person, but I found no larger social element or community at WISH outside of the people in my suite. During the academic year, many WISH residents are university students pushed into overflow housing, not interns, and they are typically not interested in becoming friends with people who don't go to their school. I went to a few of the social events, but the food/shirts typically ran out before I got there and people left after that. Beyond those, there was no lounge or other communal space at Woodley Park to meet people (unless you count the elegant but sterile lobby or the basement laundry/computer rooms), nor even something like a WISH Woodley Park Facebook group (perhaps they're afraid that if they create one, residents will organize and take collective action against them?). OVERALL VALUE: I by no means came to WISH expecting a luxury experience—it's student housing, after all, even at WISH's exorbitant prices—but these problems added up to a fundamental failure on the part of WISH to provide the basic services which were advertised to me and for which I paid. I will not be staying there again and I recommend that you don't, either.

    Claudia Harbourt: I just left this place after seeing an intern that needed a medical treatment. During the 4+ hrs that I was there,(in a basement "apartment" with only a basement window in the bedroom I noticed cement dripping from the ceiling in the bathroom. Additionally there was an extremely noxious odor that eminated from the ventilation system. Once I was finished, I encouraged her to leave the apartment for several hours,,so the smell could dissipate. No one should have to put up with substandard living conditions. I question how her unit could be rented legally. I'm sorry I didn't take photos of the cement drips all over the floor.

    Aryan Shah: don't.. Just don't... the reviews say enough. The worst thing that I've seen is that they lost a package of my friend that cost 800 dollars. If you're a student or intern looking to study in DC, BY ALL MEANS PICK ANOTHER PLACE!!!!!!!!! The website is all false advertising don't believe the pictures. There are periodic water outages and the wifi is shoddy at best. I could go on but id probably be rambling.

    Jade Colter: Very safe neighborhood. Friendly staff and constant security. Overall pleasant place to stay.

    Claudia Rivera Garcia: Overall ok! 👍🏻

    GW Housing: what do users think?


    Rebecca Blacker: The staff that I worked with at GW Housing have been very understanding and willing to help in whatever way they can. The rooms themselves vary in quality but are really nice based on what I would expect to get in college. Working with them can be a confusing, but overall they try their best to be as clear and helpful as possible.

    Robert Carter: The GW Housing website is completely broken. As an incoming freshman, I have to apply for housing on their website, but the website is always either down, busy, or doesn't work at all. I have seen no response from GW Housing about the condition of their website and no update on whether anyone is attempting to fix the website. I feel like students who pay over $10k a year for GW Housing at least deserve to have a website that works.

    Alvin Yan: Does not provide any help when you urgently need it at the end of the semester.

    Dylan G: Absolutely shite

    Jack Yang: Very corrupted

    The Washington Center: what do users think?


    Emma Snyder: I was hesitant to do this program due to the several sour reviews, but I'm here to set the record straight. I did this program in summer of 2019, The Washington Center was my favorite summer of my undergraduate career. I took every chance the program had to offer. I was able to bowl in the White House, attend meetings with Presidential cabinet members, be a part of numerous in-house events, socials and made tons of friends. I gained so much perspective working and living in the city, I gained professional practices and grew as an individual. This program changed how I viewed the world. It is so worth it! I would go back every summer if I could! - great living as well super secure and clean building.

    Nia Roach: The staff was terrible! Almost refused to give me my money back when I had to go to a new apartment, because the shower in the one they put me in was not working. The staff is very unprofessional, rude, and act like they don't want to be there. One time, I asked a question regarding an event I had an issue with, and instead of answering my question respectfully. They called me in, and asked if I had a learning disability because, the instructions and description of the event were supposedly clear, so if I didn't understand something, it had to be because I had a learning disability. Don't go, this place is awful! Find an internship yourself!

    Gerardo Figueroa: I'd love this place, also, I love my international internship program. Everyone has a great experience and cares for the people.

    Susie Oh: I had a really weird experience for my internship here. I got selected as an intern for the FAA with NO interview! I never did an interview either in person or over Skype. They only look at your resume and hire based on that. It might seem like a good thing but on the other hand, you have never met the people who you will be working with. And, your coworkers haven't met you either. I think that is weird. To be selected for an internship and not have 1 meeting with your future coworkers. And, what legitimate internship would hire a person they have never met? Could this be a scam? Maybe. I declined the offer so I will never know. On the day I was offered the internship, my coordinator Lina, kept repeating on the phone and on email that she "has to move on to other candidates." I admit I was unsure if I wanted this internship. But, having your coordinator threaten to remove you from the internship from day 1 just left a bad impression. I assume that line was her way of making sales to candidates. Because, you actually have to pay program fees for most of their internships. Not for my internship though. You don't pay to do an FAA internship. The FAA pays you. Don't ever pay to do internships! Why would you pay a company to do work for them. And, most of the time, the experience won't meet your expectations. Most internships will be bad quality. That's the reality!!! And, you will feel used and taken advantage of. GET ANY JOB IN YOUR FIELD. And, build experience from there. That's what I did. I built experience from my jobs and I went back to school for a different career path and now I'm actually able to get paid internships.

    Olivia Y.: I really loved the National Security Seminar I did here back in summer 2019, and I really hope to pursue an internship through them in the future. They have really friendly employees, people that are happy to help and see you grow, and they have beautiful residential facilities. It's a perfect location and a great way to get immersed into the D.C. experience.

    Heather Baker: If I could give a worse review, I would. The Washington center is a scam for money. Anything they offer you could find on your own. I was fortune that I liked the internship they place me at but they forced me to take that internship. The workers gave the excuse that “it’s just such a good opportunity” instead of doing their jobs and looking into other internship sites. This program could be done by a middle schooler.

    Joe Strbo: This place had horrific teachers and staff. They hype everything up. DON'T RECOMMEND. The DC experience itself it great and the people you meet from all over the world make the experience. Do not rely on the staff to make YOUR time there memorable.

    Brandon Uhalik: I had an incredible internship experience, and I wish I could say the same about The Washington Center program. The only part I enjoyed was my night class because my professor was amazing. 1. The lead program was absolutely awful. One of the very first classes was a 3 hour class on our Clifton Strengths. I felt like I was back in middle school during the class. My lead instructor was a very nice guy and knew what he was talking about, but the class in itself was pointless. 2. The various “Career and Proffesional Growth” events that we had to attend were extremely unorganized, and the ones that dealt with anything with journalism or politics was very partisan and to the left. During an event titled “Career in Campaigns”, TWC’S OWN STAFF MEMBER ASKED “WHAT CAN DEMOCRATS DO BETTER LEADING INTO 2020”. For a non-partisan program, the staff members seemed to love squeezing out their own agenda. I was excited to learn about campaign work, but it turned into “What can democrats do”. 3. The speaker series that we were REQUIRED to go turned into a conservative bashing event. All 3 panelists were clearly partisan and pushed their own political agenda. As a non-partisan program, shouldn’t TWC give equal representation? I was promised equal representation for the campaign event, but the republican woman on the panel said word for word “Women who voted for Trump only did it because their boyfriends or husbands said so”. Can you explain to me how that type of attitude helps us become professionals? My internship experience was fantastic, but I wouldn’t recommend the TWC program.

    Sean Doyle: Internships look to be easy, and maybe you can get one, but not the powerful internships and programs around those internships that TWC can offer. My interactions with TWC have been great. Very interesting academic thinking. Wonderful interpersonal skills. The insights and deep deep relationships to the DC community they offer are life changing. I am a supporter of what they do. No other way to go about this.

    John VanDaele: Poor communication, my internship supervisor quit the week I moved in and there was some confusion to where I was living. The living center had a few broken outlets and maintenance was impossible to get a hold of also the first week there was no air conditioning so image DC in June with no Air conditioning. Umm let see, well the program was a waste of time considering we spent a lot of time on our "strengths" learn from others that went here you can get a way better DC experience going solo. Also this place claimed to be non partisan but advocated for a certain agenda by having MANDATORY events to go to that only showed one side of an opinion, when students signed a letter demanding some respect what is their response? Hold a town hall type meeting then have a "bi partisan" event with two sides of the same coin. Then the exit meeting when we left, the staffer was extremely rude, pretty much thought I was in a hidden camera show. So disrespectful!
