I had a terrific experience staying at the Apple Hostel overnight during a quick trip to Philly. I walked from the bus station with my backpack and felt very safe. The young woman at the front desk warmly greeted and oriented me upon arrival. Her cheerful attitude mirrored what I had experienced over the phone reserving my bed. I stayed...

Extremely well run hostel, run little events every night which can be fun. Rooms are clean and amazing everything works because they have handy man, Few hostels have. But a must do is use there commercial grade laundry. My cloths are so very clean. More than normal.

Very clean, friendly Hostel in great location. Couldn't have been easier to reserve and use. Private, semi-private and dorm rooms - all reasonably priced. Parking nearby and near historic sites. Not for everyone - it is a Hostel after all......

Staying at Apple Hostel was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Located in Old Town and transportation is so nice in the summer riding the Phlash. I stayed in the female dorm, many bunk beds. The place is clean and the staff is friendly and very well informed about the city so they are very helpful. Very...

A very well located hostel, 5 mins walking to the independence mall, where the Megabus buses stop to and from NYC. The staff was very nice and helpful, giving tips about vegan restaurants or just general information. Very well equipped kitchen, with a stunning oven. Good hostel atmosphere with a nice living room. Free coffee and tea, but no breakfast...

We stayed in this hostel for three nights. Because of the curtains at every bed, sleeping in a room with 12 bunk beds was totally okay. The hostel itself was very clean and the number of showers and toilets on our floor were sufficient. Also the opportunity to grab free food (in our case pasta) was pretty nice and unexpected....

The apple hostel is in a fabulous location in Philadelphia's old town close to restaurants and attractions. The hostel itself is very pleasant, everything you'd expect from a hostel really. It was clean and well maintained with friendly staff and group activities available in the evenings. For a budget holiday I would definitely recommend.

This is my second visit, I love this place. I travel alone to visit my son who is a student in Philadelphia. I am made so welcome and nothing is to much trouble for the staff, I'm even allowed to keep a bicycle in the baggage room. The location is great so close to 2dn street septa station and the...

I was in town for a conference, but couldn't afford the $250/night conference hotel rate, so tried this hostel out instead. Turns out there were a number of folks staying there who also were at the conference. Location is great, right in the heart of the old historical/national park area. I was able to walk to the Marriott (conference hotel)...
