The hostel is located in the most beautyful part of Philly, Bank street is quiet but close to everything in the old city. The hostel is very clean and tidy and Bradley to my opinion the best recepcionist of all times, whatever i needed he was gratefull to help. The place also offers a particular activity each day, including pasta... More

This place has great nightly events and friendly staff. Unfortunately the 16 man rooms were very cramped, stuffy and sweaty so i advise getting one of the private or group rooms if you can. Whilst we were there the plumbing had problems meaning there was one shower and one toilet downstairs available to male guests (for some reasons the ladies... More

I'm very sorry about the problem we had with our bathrooms when you stayed with us in October, 2014. As you know, one of the two sewer lines from the building broke and got clogged under the street in front of our building. The good news is that we have two sewer lines, so it didn't affect the women's bathrooms.... More

Best place to stay in Philly, and one of the best hostels I have stayed at in the US! I stayed at Apply Hostels with my brother in 2013 for a few days and again for almost two weeks in 2014 when I was moving to Philly. Located in a great location in Old City, so there is plenty to... More

I have great things to say about the Apple Hostels! I'm in the process of relocating to Philly and found myself stuck from commuting back and forth from NY to Philly. Decided to check out places online to temp stay and found Apple Hostels. I was a bit hesitant to stay since I have never stayed at a hostel but... More

If you need a cheap, fun, colorfully decorated hostel which gives you a chance to either be private or get to know others who are friendly, respectable to others, comfortable, and so close to the great sights and places to just enjoy this city, Apple Hostels is the BEST choice . Bradley, one of the receptionists and staff members is... More

Highly recommended, clean, easy to find, quiet, friendly atmosphere... good kitchen facilities, and they offer a lot of activities for the size of the hostel. The fact that cereal and milk is provided on the weekends is a plus. Alice has been especially helpful.

This little gem far exceeded my expectations!! It is located right in the heart of all the tourist attractions and a block from the train and bus. It was quiet the entire 3 days I stayed and everyone was so accommodating! This was my first stay in a hostel alone however I am going to make it my preferred lodging... More

I stayed here for one night when I went to take a USMLE exam. The hostel has a great location, very near to Independence Hall/Liberty Bell Center, lots of eating places/bars and also to a subway station. The staff were super friendly on arrival and explained the layout of the hostel and gave great tips on places to eat and... More

In my most recent move to Philadelphia I found myself looking for a temporary abode and I found this at the Apple Hostel. The staff was more than friendly and the rooms and facilities are well kept. I can't mention all of the staff but certainly Bradley is awesome and the manager Mark is a stand up guy as well.... More
