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.
Fantastic location near all the historical spots. Also very near downtown (about five to six blocks away).
No complaints! l It was a great stay, as good as any hostel I've experienced around the world!
