Very cool hostel in the perfect location in between Chestnut and Market streets in the historic district. So many cool things to see within very close walking distance. Fantastically friendly staff who all know so much about the city and are happy to help. Very clean facilities and although they don't give free breakfast they do offer the occasional free... More

This place was great for meeting fellow travellers! The staff offered free evening meals and organised pub crawls/karaoke nights. This made us feel really welcome and we got to drink at all of the popular bars on our first night as a result and also make a lot of new friends.

I stayed here for one night on a stopover. Staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere, however these things mean very little when it is impossible to get a peaceful nights sleep. The door which separates the reception are from the dorms bangs loudly whenever someone closes it, which was happening throughout the night. The stairs to the... More

I am very sorry for the noise that permeated into your room during your stay. We had a section of the ceiling below your room opened up to perform work to our central air conditioning system. We were not aware that while this was open that it was letting through all the noise you experienced. Thank you so much for... More

I am a 44 year old single traveller who found the atmosphere of the hostel one of the best I have ever experienced. This, in my opinion, is down to the wonderful staff who from the moment I first arrived, did everything they could to make my stay a happy one. They succeeded. The city itself is well worth a...

Was originally booked for 3 nights, but due to flight cancellations, I did not get to PHL on the first night. Marc the manager was able to rent out my bed for that night and waived the charge. I appreciate that! This is probably the cleanest hostel I have stayed at. Everything from washroom, bathroom, lounge, kitchen, and the dorms.... More

A really easy place to find from 30th st station via subway. Transport cheap. Very buzzy, trendy area in the evenings and walking distance to everything within the city and along the water. Nice to have bathroom within dorm instead if having to remember key card in the middle of the night!

Overall it's a really nice hostel. The staff is very friendly and eager to help you or give you hints of great places to explore in the city. Also it is very clean and the do a bunch of activities that vary every day. It's only getting 4 stars because the wifi signal doesn't really reach the rooms. It's strong... More
