Great location close to metro stop with lots of shops just around the corner. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff and nice common area. Lockers with outlets, spacious rooms and clean bathroom. Stairwells are only thing that show the age. Would definitely stay here again. Met nice people of all ages from all over the world.
Weekend light breakfasts were a nice touch. Other big city hostels include breakfast daily.
The staff at Apple Hostel are exceptionally friendly and helpful. I especially recommend the Ghost Tour!
I had a spectacular time during my 6 day stay at the Philly Apple Hostel. It's central location in the Philly Old City, makes it a prefect place to explore colonial American History, including the Liberty Bell, City Tavern, Betsy Ross house, et. al. The Ghost tour was fun, and the staff were all very helpful in explaining the nuances of Philly. :-) I will definitely be back.
