  • I have been here several times before, and intend to return. I need to be in the area from time to time, and there is very little in the way of nearby motels that aren't very expensive. All I want is a clean, safe, respectable and comfortable place to sleep and make breakfast. This place is perfect for me. The only drawback is that it is far away from a bus stop, and there is nothing around it, as it is located in Fairmont Park. But since I drive a car, this is not a problem.

  • Nice hostel location and great rates for the area. It's a bit cold indoors in the winter and the beds aren't super comfortable but the price is right. The staff are very nice.

  • For my first time in a hostel, I was pleasantly surprised. The beds are clean, rooms and bathrooms are clean and there was even something to make yourself a small breakfast. I would go here again!

  • I rated the location badly because it is not centrally located and you have to make a 15 minute walk from the bus station to get there. For me it was a nice walk though, and the hostel is located in a nice natural area, within Fairmount Park (a big park within Philly). The beds are not comfortable. However, the atmosphere in the hostel is nice, and it has some nice shared rooms. Value for money is ok.

  • Very nice place! We were exploring the city, so we didn't spend much time there, but it was still a pleasant stay. Our group consisted of 2 girls and 1 guy, and they put us all in a room together, which was nice.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
