Really great location in old town which is a few blocks from pretty much anything if you are using the trains. Great installation and staff really helpful and cheerful. Sorry for making all that noise to.

We brought a group of HS students here for a week. The staff was very hospitable and accommodating. The facilities were very nice and clean and the staff was very friendly. We would highly recommend this hostel.

The Hostel is clean, staff is friendly, and the location is perfect for walking around Philly. We had a group of 26 and the large dorm and restroom were perfect for our needs. The shared dining area was easy to use and they provided coffee every morning.

Yes, if your budget is tight, and you're not too old (but an old camper), this is the place to go. It is in a convenient location near the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall and just between Market and Chestnut Streets where you can get taxis, and buses on Market. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is...

I was only at the hostel for 12 hours because I had to leave early to head back to where I'm living, but I enjoyed my short stay. The place is clean and, while I was not able to take advantage of them, there were lots of common area space. I was in the all-female dorm, and it was quiet...

I had a terrific experience staying at the Apple Hostel overnight during a quick trip to Philly. I walked from the bus station with my backpack and felt very safe.

Very clean, friendly Hostel in great location. Couldn't have been easier to reserve and use. Private, semi-private and dorm rooms - all reasonably priced. Parking nearby and near historic sites. Not for everyone - it is a Hostel after all......

Staying at Apple Hostel was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Located in Old Town and transportation is so nice in the summer riding the Phlash. I stayed in the female dorm, many bunk beds. The place is clean and the staff is friendly and very well informed about the city so they are very helpful. Very...

A very well located hostel, 5 mins walking to the independence mall, where the Megabus buses stop to and from NYC. The staff was very nice and helpful, giving tips about vegan restaurants or just general information. Very well equipped kitchen, with a stunning oven. Good hostel atmosphere with a nice living room. Free coffee and tea, but no breakfast...
