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.

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

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.

Really great experience. Was easy to find and the staff were very helpful with tourist suggestions, especially Bradley the receptionist who checked me in. Would definitely come back and he also aided me with my continuing travels. Would recommend to anyone planning on visiting Phily on a budget.
