I stayed with a friend and we both agreed the staff were friendly and welcoming and made a real effort to get to know us. The rooms were small but this was not a problem as we didn't spend any time in them other than to sleep and the beds were perfectly comfortable. The common area had character and charm and We spent most evenings there meeting new people and playing cards against humanity! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed philly and a massive part of that was down to the hostel!!

it was my first time to stay in hostel house and I was afraid of not liking it or the host will not be as should be, but I found the host very cooperative and made me feel very very welcomed.

Cutest place in a great location - my friend and I were up til 3AM doing laundry and the staff were so lovely in accommodating us. They also have a huge widescreen TV (it was playing Parks and Rec for a bit) which is always a bonus! Overall a really cool, chill place to stay at in Philly.

I had a great time while I was there, I considered Brandon my personal host as he and the gang made sure everything was correct. Everything was clean and the coffee always ready. You can see some of the gang here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153476650133714.1073742009.619088713&type=1&l=a92ea008f4 PS the nose were my gifts as I travel the world as a humanitarian clown www.guygiard.com

Had a great stay at Old City Philly House! The staff are super helpful and nice and definitely point you to all the main sites along with other tips. Because the hostel is a bit smaller than others it's really nice because you get to meet people in a more laid back setting. It's also in an awesome location, surrounded by shops and cute cafés. Overall I'd highly recommend this place to anyone.

Nice hostel. Clean. The staff really takes an effort to create a nice vibe. Only disappointment is that there is no lock the room. So the entire hostel could enter the room. The rooms are small.

Removal of shoes strictly enforced lol. I'm sorry but I wouldn't consider 'happy hour' as two tiny cups of beer.

I was very fortunate to have been received by Chad and I had my check out handled by Chad as well. He was an excellent host and gave me a good introduction to Philadelphia despite many people telling me that there was not much to do. I did not even managed to finish the itinerary he suggested for me. His attitude at ensuring that the guest feel comfortable at the hostel was excellent, and the bed at the hostel was the most comfortable I've ever slept on for a hostel. Highly recommended.
