Apple Hostel was an excellent place to stay in Philadelphia. It was centrally located, easily accessible from the main train station, and had friendly and helpful staff. The Ghost Tour was particularly good: an excellent blend of sight-seeing and not-too-meandering stories. Although the dorm room was very large, all of the guests were considerate. There was no outside noise, and... More

It was great staying in the Apple Hostel for the first time in my life. The best part is it is located in the center of the city and has easy access to public transportation. I found it clean and peaceful. It would be unfair if I don't mention Bradley's name the front desk staff who had made my stay... More

The fist time that I went there it was really amazing. All day there are an event in the hostel such as movie, drinks, music. People who work there are very friendly. I really enjoyed when I was there. I recommend Apple Hostels Philadelphia.

This is an uber-clean, super cozy and quiet hostel. It's location is perfect for undertaking an old timy Philly tour or getting on the metro to go somewhere else. The female only dorm was large but super quiet. Brilliant extras - everyone gets their own little reading lamp to read or pack if needed before lights go on in the... More

This is a fantastic hostel. Clean, great location, wonderful staff. It was nice to have a quilt and not just a sheet, it was nice to have a personal reading lamp as well as a hair dryer in the bathroom. Extremely safe neighbourhood and central to lots of sites and transportation. Having stayed in hostels all over the world this... More

I'm very happy that you enjoyed your stay! Let’s be clear though that we absolutely do have a rule that we only allow one person per bed. I was the one whom your friend spoke to and I explained to her that the older Colombian couple didn’t speak English and we were having trouble explaining to them how the dormitory... More

This was my first experience of staying in a hostel and I was a little apprehensive, to be honest. I needn't have been though, because Apple is a great little place and very well run. It is located in a downtown alleyway, so convenient for the major Philly attractions as well as the Greyhound station. The staff were friendly and... More

I have stayed here for two nights on two different occasions. Actually this is my stay whenever I have to catch an early morning flight from Philadelphia. So I have stayed here only for nights and have not done much of the activities and not even had the breakfast that they offer. Now the main reason I choose this hostel... More
