When you leave the front door, it is very confusing which way to turn. The city does not have street signs visible at the end of the road to to know if you are heading north or south. It would be helpful if a professional sign was posted outside the front door indicating which street was which, or have a compass pointing which way was north. Being my first time in Philly and only being there two days, all the roads looked the same.

Had a great time here. It was the counter staff's first day on the job and she was super busy but very helpful and kind to me. Enjoyed the common area and room was very comfortable. Right on a main subway line as well. Property was well kept and clean.

The events in the evenings are great! I liked the ghost tour.

Awesome! Easily the best place we stayed during our trip. The staff were incredibly friendly: Bradley in particular, but there was also a young blonde lady (have forgotten her name). The evenings out organised by the hostel were awesome, and they provided a lot of free alcohol. Brilliant location. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I was impressed with the service. I arrived to the place and Alice(the hostels rep) really went out of her way to help me get settled in. The hostel itself was great. It seemed like the hostel encouraged interaction among it's travelers by providing us with events(eg. ghost tour, art stroll, bbq). I really met a lot of different people and had a good time. I will be returning to this place, the next time I come to Philadelphia.

Clean, new and nicely located in the city. Close to the Independence Nacional Historical Park. They have also a guitar in the living room!

Welcoming and friendly staff. Good common area facilities and activities. Only issue was that the air conditioner was alternately overpowering and insufficient upstairs (June visit).

This is a great hostel right in the heart of Philly's Old City. Sadly I missed the pub crawl on the first night as I was really jet-lagged, but Bradley's ghost tour the following night was great! The staff are all really, really friendly and helpful. The information provided such as maps with hostel recommendations is really handy too. The kitchen was kept very clean and well equipped. It was nice to meet people there too. Overall a really good experience and I would highly recommend it!

A little expensive and not the most social guests. But it was a great clean/safe/well located place to crash for a few nights.

Thanks for being trans friendly! We had a great experience here during the Trans Health Conference and will probably return next year.
