If you're staying in Philly on your own then it's perfect. College dorms, has it's own cafe downstairs which is brilliant for breakfast, and there's a free gym as well! If ever I'm in Philly again I will definitely consider staying here again.


Ok. This is not really a hostel and likely should not be at Hostelworld.com. This is a place where students live for long periods and staying there 1-2 nights is sorta weird. You have to bring your own toilet paper and clean after yourself when you leave etc. That said, rooms are sorta small but ok. Hard beds. TV, fridge and AC in room. Location is great if visiting the Uni. About a 20-25 minute walk to downtown Philly though. Area felt safe. No parking. Closest garage is $35 per 24 hrs.


20-25 minutes walk to the city center. Very clean. Big room with a fridge and a microwave. Confortable beds and clean bathroom.
