This was my last stop of my one month trip to United States East coast. And it was the perfect ending, I really enjoyed my stay there, the staff was super friendly and always willing to help or suggest places to go and visit. Philly is a beautiful city full of history! and has a really good nightlife that you... More

If you are traveling with a group, alone or as a couple this is the place to be. Located in quaint Old City Philadelphia the hostel is by far one of the most outstanding. Marc and his team will make you feel at home whether you're from near or far. With directions to local attractions, maps when needed and generally... More

I stayed in Philadelphia for 5 days during the last week of November. Despite having my backpack lost from Megabus upon arrival in Philly, the hostel was a very welcoming place. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The hostel had free beer on a couple of nights and there was a pub crawl the one night I was there.... More

Hi Mark! Thanks for emailing us today to let us know that you recovered your backpack - that's great news! Turns out that it was kept by customs when you crossed the border from Canada to the US. At least they got it back to you even if it took them a couple of months! Tim and Bradley at the... More

This is a great hostel to stay in when in Philadelphia. The location is central, within walking distance of all the tourist attractions. The hostel arranges many activities including bar crawls, ghost tours and free food nights. If I remember right, breakfast is available for free on weekends only. The hostel has a cheap nightly fee but they don't mention... More

I had a private room and my only criticism was the heating/cooling system was very noisy and was not able to be shut down. Be aware the manger is over zealous and condescending with implementing...
