I disliked the following: 1) Hostel entrance being off on alley. 2) Location next to a club.3) They lied about the number of beds in the shared women's dorm; stating 8 beds on the website instead of the more than 20 beds in the women's dorm. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone and unless I were broke or desperate, I wouldn't return. Based on my prior, overwhelmingly pleasant experiences at HI hostels in Chicago and Washington, DC, I'm surprised this is a member of the HI brand.
The place is small but warm! Staffs are nice and activities are interesting！ I recommend that breakfast can have more options
My brief stay in Philadelphia was pleasant.
I liked everything. Alice, Max, and Bradley were friendly, effective, and efficient. I was impressed by the frequent tours that the staff made around the clock: good security and allowed them to stay on top of maintenance issues. Best-equipped kitchen I have ever seen.
The best hostel I stayed in thr US, nice staffs, very helpful, and i love the setting in the dorm, not to fully-packed.
Great staff, location, price, and activities!!
In the dorm you have only one hook to hang clothing on. May I suggest more hooks as you do have plenty of wall space for additional hooks. No place to hang Winter coats, etc. Thanks.
Oh, There is a need for night lights (small ones) to ight the floor. I almost tripped over bags and clothing in the dark!!! Careful, that is a legal liability!!!
Leider nur Teppiche, wie in vielen amerikanischen Hostels, Küche und Aufenthaltsräume ohne Tageslicht, sonst schön. Sehr gute Atmosphäre.
Pro: location, planned social activities, kitchen
Con: Too many visitors spend all their time on laptops and mobile devices = no social interaction, lights not on until 10AM makes for dressing in dark in winter
