We are chartered as a resource for students and foreign travelers. Due to our limited amount of space, we require that upon check-in each guest must provide a valid foreign passport. US residents must present government-issued ID showing that you live outside a 75-mile radius of Philadelphia.

You must be 18 years of age or older unless accompanied by a parent or a school-appointed chaperone. Children under 8 years of age are not permitted in our dorm rooms, no exceptions.

There is a 14-day maximum stay for all of our guests.

We are affiliated with Hostelling International, so if you don't have a yearly membership you will need to pay the $3 daily membership. Yearly memberships can be purchased for $28 and include 2 nights for the price of one coupons that are redeemable at HI hostels in NYC, DC and Boston among others.

It should also be noted that you are not viewing the Apple Hostels website, but that of a booking agency.

If you're a man and woman traveling together you should know that we have a Couples-only (mixed) dorm room that we don't always list on this site. If the two of you have each booked a bed in male and female dorm rooms, email us right away so to see if there's availability to be moved over to it.

Men are not permitted in the mixed dorm room unless traveling with women. Women are always permitted in the mixed dorm room.

State and municipal hotel tax totaling 15.5% is not included in the price
