The Washington Intern housing network is amazing ! As an intern, I didn’t expect much coming into DC, how ever I was mistaken when we flew up here . Our apartment is so BIG. You’d think living with six other interns would be a hassle, but it doesn’t feel like it with all of us spaced out with a good kitchen and living room. The staff is so accommodating, Melanie for example is one of the most professional and helpful housing coordinators I have ever met, she constantly reaches out , checks in , and responds to any break down or question in need . I honestly , I’ve lived in other areas with housing companies and I never have had one that not only suits my needs in the actual apartment (that came with furniture and a beautiful balcony ) but a company that provides me with great, reliable service. Only criticism I can give is that sometimes maintenance comes in without notice , but their only responding to a request we would make beforehand .
Very nice units. Spacious. I’m an intern staying at Senate Square with the WIHN and they are super great. The apartment is spacious enough and comfortable with even 7 of us , the staff are very accommodating of whom they check up on us for complaints if any , respond quickly and even set up socials for us to meet other interns . I would love to live here even as a resident .
I was so fortunate to obtain a fellowship on Capitol Hill through the University of Houston's Hobby School of Public Affairs. The school could not have picked a better housing network other than the Washington Intern Housing Network! Melanie and the rest of her team welcomed us with warm hands and made sure we had everything we needed to live comfortably. Along with amazing housing, WIHN has made an effort to connect other interns in the network to my roommates and I through socials with FREE FOOD. Who doesn't like free food? 10/10 would recommend the WIHN.
The location was within walking distance of mostly everything in the city, which was incredibly convenient. The house came fully furnished, which is a great find. WIHN proved to be an easy way to access housing. Also, made great friends.
I am the parent of a Summer 2017 WIHN intern living at Greystone. I do not write and post negative reviews about businesses, but my conscience won't let me just sweep this experience under the carpet. It would be a disservice and unfair to other parents and prospective interns. First, the positive. The location is exceptional. A 20 minute walk to the Hill. Living with other interns provides an opportunity to meet other like-minded young people. The downsides: our son was assigned a room in a dark and dank basement with virtually zero window light or air, and a plastic mattress. The plumbing backed up the second week and the basement reeked. The plumbing was not repaired for five days. The room had only a single ceiling light. The landlord manager said she would provide lighting and when she finally dd, she provided a $4 Walmart desk lamp. The manager said she would host a get-to-know-you event for the 18 interns, which she never did. The kitchen was too small for 18 residents to cook dinners and it was usually a mess. Our deposit wasn't returned until almost three months after departure. We paid $4,500 for about 47 nights or nealrly $100 per night. My advice to interns and parents of interns is to make Greystone/WIHN your last option.
Confirming what those who already lived here have known for years, a recent Wall Street Journal article listed Washington, D.C. as the most expensive place to live in the United States. In addition, The Washington Post published a government study that declared Washington, D.C. housing prices higher than those of New York City or San Francisco.
