Just a great hostel! I was a bit worried about the 16 people dorm but everyone was really quiet and respectful. Maybe that has nothing to do with the hostel, just that I'm lucky, but maybe this gives you an idea of what kind of people that comes to stay at this hostel. Movie night with free beer, they changed code every day, free baggage storage when you checked out, free coffee, the AND chocolate milk! Very helpful staff and well stocked kitchen. Just great!

Nothing special, but has a good location, near to Liberty Bell and stuff, not so far to South Philly (Geno's and Pat's). Wifi doesn't work in the rooms, but works in the lounge. Breakfast is just cereal's. I had no problems there!

It was challenging for me with no elevator. In general guests weren't very sociable towards me.

A nice hostel however it lacked atmosphere, everyone just laid on their beds and didnt really interact. It was a relatively clean hostel and ok value for money. The beds were as expected, but on whole you could do better

Owner Comment (Hide)
I m sorry that you didn t enjoy the atmosphere of the hostel, but you really need to get out of the dorm room if you want to have fun. We had free mixed drinks from 8 pm to 9:15 pm and had about 40 of our guests participating. About 30 of our guests then went out on our free pub crawl. Those who stayed in the dorm room such as yourself are the ones that dont want to mingle with other guests, and there s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but I have trouble understanding why you are complaining.

There is nothing bad to be said about this hostel. The facilities are very good. They have activities every day, including film nights with FREE beer. Bradley on the front desk is an amazing font of information and cheerfulness. BUT, and it is a big but, on a travellers budget it is an expensive place to stay.

Very good idea having little baskets at every bed for things you'd like to have within reach, also excellent with rechargeing plugs inside the lockers. Nice with free coffee and tea in kitchen. Very friendly staff.

Have stayed at this hostel on several occasions, and it's always clean, tidy and well equipped. The social aspect activities are great because you can be as social as you like or be left to your own devices without being disturbed. Always still manage to get a good sleep even in the bigger dorms - the lights off at a certain time is perfect!

Great hostel really. Good social atmosphere and lots of friendly staff. Table football table was a bonus. Bar crawl that we went on was a lot of fun.

Very nice and friendly staff, good facilities, good location. Howeverm the stairs were a bit narrow for carrying a bag, and wifi not very fast, but bonus sleeping right in a breeze from the airconditioning in the hot weather.
