This was a new extension of the old hostel, so everything was new, clean and efficient. The staff was quite helpful and friendly, especially Tim who suggested I leave my luggage in the locker room, until I was ready to travel on my check-out day!

O ar condicionado do quarto estava muitíssimo frio. Tivemos que fazer barreiras nas camas com as toalhas para amenizar o frio. Bancos ou cadeiras de apoio nos quartos seria muito bom.

It was incredibly clean and spacious and in a great location! Would absolutely go back to stay there if I visit Philly again.

You all provide a wonderful service! I would have given you “excellent” rather than “very good” if provided that as an option in your rating survey. A very minor suggestion: I stayed across the street, and had to work late a couple of nights (up till 3am). The TV was very loud in the lounge... Is there a way the remote could be attached to the screen so that it could be self-serve? Anyway, I had a wonderful stay, and I’m very grateful to everyone. I will highly recommend it!

This was a great hostel - Marc and Alice were very friendly and great with information for Philly. The location is wonderful. I never had to wait for the shower or the bathroom and each time I was in either - they were clean. The communal kitchen is huge too. Coffee and Tea are available everyday and cereal and oatmeal was available on the Friday morning that I was there. I am a 60 plus solo traveler and have stayed at other hostels in the USA and this one ranks high in everything.
