This is the perfect apartment for a night out on the town in Shaw. Its literally down the alley from Flash, 3 blocks from 9:30 Club, 2 doors down from Kiss Lounge, across the street from The Howard Theatre and Right Proper Brewing Company. If you are coming to DC to go out, this is the move. It's not super fancy but the bed is comfortable and you can smoke weed inside.

Its a low key shitty basement apartment in a clutch location. Don't be that guy. Don't come here if you want a hotel experience

The space

There is 1 bedroom with 1 Queen size bed in it and the living room has a pull out sofa that can sleep 2. There is a washer and dryer and a full kitchen in the unit. The kitchen is fully functional and stocked with the equipment you need to cook the basics.

Guest access

The access is the entire apartment, the back patio is a shared space and not open for guests.

Interaction with guests

My office is next door so I am never too far away. I am very difficult to reach by phone but I always respond to Airbnb messages with a quickness so please always hit me here.

Great location. Check-in and check-out were super smooth and easy! Cute little place, but not very clean. Molly was lovely with communication. Only issue was cleanliness.

Exactly as you read it. Can't beat the price compared to any hotel. Plenty of space and stuff you may need. And it has laundry in unit! Really quite great for a night out

Absolutely terrible place. Stay anywhere but here if you can help it. Owner sends aggressive emails when you cancel due to their listing being disgusting.

Parking was terrible and I was frustrated coming in trying to locate it. Molly was extremely responsive and attentive and was extremely helpful in the situation! This was my second time staying at one of her places and I was not disappointed at all! D O P E!!! Decor, cleanliness, vibes, necessities all on point
