This hostel is awesome!! Its close to all main attractions, the staff is so kind and cheerful (specially Joanne, she loves to talk and has too much energy!!) that i felt at home during all my stay. The rooms are really big, but the lockers are located outside the room in the reception (maybe you guys should put lockers in each room) Thank you so much guys!

Best hostel I've ever been. I went to Philly on July 4th, and staff took all of us to the big parade and free concert, they even treated us with hot dog party. I had so much fun in here. I love Philadelphia and this hostel!!!

It is a very homely place. The hosts were very friendly and more than just hosting. They go out of the way to guide and advise us on anything we need to know about the new surroundings and tourist attractions. Their personal touch goes a long way.

Great place to spend 4th July. Small hostel where everyone can make friends in the common area. Our dorm was right next to this area - if you want to go to sleep before the others I'd imagine it'd be a bit noisy but they do have quiet hours, 24 hour staff and solid wifi. Bed a little squeaky but overall a true hostel - friendly, relaxed and in a very central location.

Superb!! Excellent friendly staff who clearly have a passion they are willing to share about Philly. Comfortable, homely. You will meet a family here everyone is so welcoming and wants to genuinely know you. I wish I had more time here but it was fully booked. Don't underestimate The Philadelphia house or Philadelphia!! I certainly did not have enough time there with only 2 nights :( my intention is to return with less time pressure. Loved it all!!! And clean with a comfy sofa to boot xx

Absolutely great!!! Safe, clean, great atmosphere, walkable distance from all you will want to see and an awesome staff who does everything to make u feel home.! They will welcome you with a happy smile and tell all the goodies in the city! From museums to pizza! They will take u to parties and everyday they update a board that they have with good things happening around the city! If you want a great place to stay while in Philly this is definitely THE BEST you could choose! :)

This place can't be beat! Killer location just a few blocks away from all the historical landmarks, great people, Xbox and Wii… My only quibble is that the wifi seemed funky at times, but nothing that a reboot of the router couldn't fix. For anyone visiting Philly, this is hands down the place to stay! PS I finished my report, yay!!

I stayed at this place for 4 nights and I have to say, it's one of the best hostels ever. It's right next to most tourist sights, it's very clean and the facilities are excellent. But what made this place really special was the staff who create a very familiar atmosphere. Thanks a lot guys!
