The hostel hosts great socials for those staying at the hostel, for instance ghost tours and a movie and free beer night. Wifi is great. The lockers have... More

This is an old building in keeping with other historic buildings in Philadelphia, so don't expect luxury. Having said that though I believe that Customer Service can overcome deficiencies in a building be they through old age or design. If you come to this hostel and need something ask Kristy or Alice who work at reception. They have a happy... More

Had a great stay here, staff were especially helpful, especially Bradley:) The rooms were clean and nicely furnished and the communal areas were lovely. Brilliant location and loads of advice if you need help with the area. Would definitely recommend.

I was in town for a conference and spent part of my week here. The guy at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. I came in very early in the morning and was able to do laundry, lock my things away and relax on the couch. I was really tired so it was exactly what I needed. The... More

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.
