This place is so popular I was only able to get in one day of the weekend, but glad I got a spot at the last minute. However, this place is great!! It's in a great location very close to the train, to lots of places to eat, and to plenty of entertainment. They serve cereal on the weekends, but... More

Located in a really great historical district with great restaurants near by! Staff were all lovely as well! Downside was hair... More

Absolutely faultless. Clean and modern hostel with very comfortable beds. Staff were also fantastic, and put on free meals, breakfasts and pub crawls - and were quick to recommend things to do in Philadelphia. Location was also great, as only a few blocks from major attractions, Penn's Landing and Megabus

- I stayed here for 2 nights. If you don't really familiar with PA, probably you need to ask people around or use google map, because this place is "hiding" somewhere around Bank Street. - Come early for the check-in if you want to get a locker and don't forget to bring your own padlock - It's pretty close with...

I stayed at the hostel during the DNC and had a great experience. As a woman traveling alone I am very cautious about where to stay. Due to huge demand for affordable housing, the women's dorm was all booked up so I (somewhat nervously) booked a place in the co-ed room. Apple Hostels made me feel safe and welcome. According...

Just back from 4 weeks travelling the East Coast and staying in hostels. This place is one of the best ones we stayed in. Don't be put off by high bed numbers in the dorms, they really have gone above and beyond to ensure you get a decent nights sleep, free ear plugs are available, nose strips if you snore,... More

We checked in, the awesome chick (Alice) behind the counter was brilliant, she told us all the fantastic sites of this wonderful city. She knew all the locations, how to get there, a wealth of knowledge. This is the place to stay. 10/10 would stay again. Do not hesitate to go here.

Booked this hostel/hotel though another site which generally requires immediate payment as well as to save money! First, while the hostel/hotel is between Olde City and Penns Landing the actual location is in the alley off of Market St and no parking nor can cars barely fit through the alley! I did not have the card that I used to... More

For those reading this review, please let me explain: "dmitch1715" made a reservation through Hotels.com where it was clearly stated that nothing is charged in advance, which gives our guests the opportunity to pay with cash, debit or one of their own credit cards. When this person arrived she told our receptionist that she wanted to pay with a credit... More

The hostel is super well located; blocks away from the Independence park, the historical neighborhood and with several very nice and cool pubs and restaurants just around the corner. The people in the front desk welcame us as great friends, explained absolutely everything about the town, places to visit, and all details about the hostel. Our was a shared room... More
