I was spoiled by Boston's hostel. The bearded guy (manager?) at Boston's front desk said they wanted to be a 5-star hostel, and they were.

I agree, if you're looking for a hotel, absolutely the Boston hostel. If you're looking for a hostel, that's exactly what we are - and one of the best in North America I might add. You stayed in our discounted 18-bed dorm room. Sounds like you would have preferred one of our 4 or 6-bed dorm rooms which are still much less expensive than the hotel-like Boston hostel.

On two occasions, someone chose to sleep in my lower bunk bed, that I had made up. Canceled a reservation at another hostel in Philadelphia Pa. Deposit has not been resolved.

Apple Hostel in Philadelphia. Convenient location. Doors to the rooms closed well, Room 207 was described as being for six people. It was two attached rooms. You enter the first large room which has 2 windows and one bunk bed for 2 people. Two large lockers one above the other, with electric outlets to charge electronics inside ! nice! Passing through this larger room was a smaller room or den to the left with no windows and two bunk beds accommodating 4 people. Plus 4 lockers. I was in the annex. Next time I think I will ask for a room with only two or four people, there was little space -- unless you were lucky and checked in early enough to grab one of the two bunks in the bigger room with the windows. Nice big clean refrigerators you can store food in. Stoves in both buildings if you have time to cook. Bathrooms and shower rooms were very clean. Nice price.
