I recently stayed in the men's dorm for 5 nights and had an enjoyable time. The men's dorm itself must have space for at least 20 people but it's very large and spacious so you never feel cramped. A bonus is the staff turn the lights off at 11PM and turn them on again in the morning. Staff are all... More

I spent two nights at this establishment this past weekend with a friend and must say that I was pleased with our choice of hostel. First of all, the location cannot be beat for the price we paid! You can walk to so much! And there is a plethora of night life, restaurants, etc. in the vicinity. The hostel was... More

Three 24 year-olds from the UK, stayed here for 2 nights. We have stayed in quite a few hostels and this one is by far the best. Very clean, all the amenities you could need - free WIFI, computers, a good kitchen, free tea/coffee, games consoles, shower gel, breakfast on weekends. They go out of their way so make a... More

This is my first hostel experience. I choose to stay at a hostel because I arrive late and leave early and don't want to rent a car. The price is excellent considering the location. They provide spacious kitchen, clean bathroom, nice lounge and fast internet. Great service. They even have free pasta dinner the day I checked in.

I've been here before years ago and back then it was not nearly as comfortable as it is today. The place is clean and comfortable with 4 showers in the women's dorm. They give you access to free wifi, which is fast, sheets, towels and occasionally breakfast cereal. Plus a 10% discount at a local breakfast place. The people are... More

After staying in many other HI hostels I feel this one really didn't live up to the expectations. There was no elevator to the rooms so I had to leave my suitcase on the bottom floor in a storage room, no breakfast was provided and the room smelt damp and sweaty. The guy working on the front desk however was... More

The staff at the hostel was very kind and helpful and overall the hostel was very clean. I also enjoyed the convenient location, not too far from the Liberty Bell. You can even walk to center city and City Hall if you don't mind a little bit of a longer walk.

I really enjoyed our 2 night stay in this Philadelphia hostel. Staff were lovely and the events planned at the hostel were really fun. Room and adjoining bathroom was clean. They accepted our ISIC cards and HI membership discounts which was great. Would stay at this hostel again.

We got here last minute and Alice was awesome in getting us checked in and taken care of. We dont know much about the city but she did recommend some awesome spots and goof food. She cooked us all dinner and I loved it. Apple hostels is the best in the US.
