This Hostel was so great. Very clean and great people. Bradley was amazing! Such a nice guy and very informative. The ghost tour is so fun and the free beer was great too. I highly recommend this place! There is also free coffee and tea 24 hours a day! So awesome.

It was an educational trip in Philadelphia lasted 20 days. I spent all of them in Apple Hostels Philadelphia. It was my first time in a hostel and I left definitely happy of my choice to stay there. Location is perfect, it was clean and safe. The staff was also fine. In particular, Alice at the front desk, answered all...

I've stayed here three times over the past year or so on "business" (I write about soccer for a living), and have always been impressed with Apple Hostels. The whole place is pretty spotless, which is a good effort given how many people stay there and how different everyone is. It's in a great location on Bank Street, right near...

Such a great hostel. The staff would clean from top to bottom everyday. And they would have an event every night. We went on the haunted walk with Alice and it was the best/most funny tour I've ever been on. And the staff was very friendly. Great location. Would definitely stay there again.

Great hostel that I've recommended to many friends since. Cool group that run the place and a nice group of fellow travellers that are up for a good, social experience. Loved the nightly expeditions to neighbourhood bars... and there certainly were plenty of them! Situated in a really cool neighbourhood that feels like it's taken out right out of a...

Good - clean - good location - great activities (night tours, drinking in the lobby) = great atmosphere - quiet dorm rooms Bad - the male dorm room could use a little more air circulation - expensive for my budget

I decided to try this hostel because it was close to the location of the conference I was attending, a fraction of the cost of the typical hotel, and something different to try. Still, I was nervous, but that disappeared when I walked in. This place is very welcoming, clean, and neat. If you are considering staying here, don't hesitate....
