“Dear PoPville,

I walked by Gallery Inn at the intersection of 19th and Florida today and see it is closed.”

Back in 2010 we noted the Gallery Inn was up for sale for $2,100,000.

Looks like it will remain a hostel/Inn according to the permit posted out front:

    “Transient lodging” – what neighborhood doesn’t need more transients!

  • Sue

    I never knew quite was it was supposed to be and always assumed it was a house of ill repute.

  • Anonymous

    A friend of mine is working on the interior. It’s going to be more hotel less hostel. It is one of those hotels where you will get your keys from a central location.

  • AMDCer

    It’s actually more of a hostel than hotel and caters to the backpacking/student crowd. I always wondered how it stayed in business, but it gets great reviews online.

  • wobble

    It is great it seems to be continuing as a relatively low cost option for tourist lodging in DC. We actually need more.

    Would love to see them clean up/landscape that side yard. It looks muddy and awful. Like the dupont dogpark before they astroturfed it.

  • @nicklitz

    It’s been painted white! I’m not a fan of painting brick.
