With a downtown historically significant location conveniently situated in a hip mixed use district, The Philadelphia House is surrounded by a plethora of shops, restaurants, amazing historical sites, bars and clubs.

Philadelphia buzzes from early morning until late night. Travelers are connected via 4 bus routes on the same block, a metro line just 3 short blocks away.

At The Philadelphia House we aim to provide you with comfortable, affordable, and fun accommodations where you can feel at ease and meet fellow budget travelers in a lively and relaxed environment. We provide a unique backpacker experience which offers great facilities including internet, chill out areas, lockers, tourist information, internet access, movie nights, luggage storage, telephone facilities and more!
