Payment Policies


The fee for the hostel is $35 per person per night. This fee covers the hostel stay as well as programming and accompaniment. The fee does not include meals.  Note: if your group does not engage programming from the Steinbruck Center, the fee remains $35 per person per night.

If any damages occur to the hostel during your stay, or keys or MetroCards are lost, an invoice will be issued to be paid within 30 days. You will be charged $10 per lost MetroCard, $50 per lost set of keys, and the cost of repairs for any damages.

Payment schedule

After the initial reservation is made, the Steinbruck Center staff will email you an invoice form for your deposit and payment plan. The deposit is a non-refundable deposit for half the total cost of your stay. The deposit is due within one month of your reservations.

By one month prior to arrival, the remaining balance must be paid. If final number of participants decreases after remaining balance is paid, the Steinbruck Center will not grant reimbursements.  Unfortunately, cancellations cannot be refunded once the initial deposit has been sent.  This is due to the time and work invested, as well as the lost revenue due to holding space in the hostel. Reservations made less than two months prior to arrival require a non-refundable payment of your total fee. This payment is due two weeks from the date of your initial reservation.


Checks are to be made payable to “Luther Place Memorial Church ATTN: Steinbruck Center” and can be mailed to Luther Place Memorial Church at 1226 Vermont Ave NW , Washington, D.C. 20005.  We also accept credit card payments.
