  • Old City Philly House gives you an awesome Hostel experience. It's located minutes away from the Historic District where you can see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, as well as the Pier (I highly recommend chilling at the Race St Pier - also within walking distance). There are also a lot of boutiques and cafes just around the block! Safe area as well! The staff are always available and are super friendly. They also make sure to help you out with whatever you need!

  • I really enjoyed staying at "The Old city Philly House". The situation of the hostel is excellent, the staff is really friendly, the atmosphere is great, and you feel like at home. I wish I could have stayed longer. I really appreciate all the recommendations from the manager, Chad, and all the directions he gave me. He is very friendly, and he made everything easyer, because when you arrive alone to a new city, you always feel a little bit lost. He and all his staff are a really good team.

  • I would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Philadelphia. Quiet hours observed, but might be a little hard for light sleepers (I'm a medium-light sleeper and had no problems). The staff was amazing- so friendly and helpful. The location was perfect- close to a lot of major attractions and walking distance from everything there is to see in Philly.

  • very clean hostel in great location in Olde City. security code to enter hostel, cameras inside, but dorms have no locks. good wi-fi in the 4-bed dorm. no individual reading lights or charging outlets by each bed, and the dorm's main light switch is controlled from hostel's entrance. water pressure in shower was weak. 4-bed dorm is beside the kitchen, and right by the common area, so it can get noisy when people are talking loudly (as what happened one night when staff had friends over).
