  • A great hostel with a very nice atmosphere in a very nice part of town! Highly recommendable and would have liked to stay a bit longer than only one night in Philadelphia - a nice place with a lot of things to discover!

  • Very friendly staff! It's close to the main touristic points that you should visit while stay in Philly! They have activities to engage te guests which is pretty cool, but there's also space and quietness if you're not in the mood! Internet works great and facilities are really good, in general.

  • I stayed here in October 2014. Originally from San Diego, I've stayed in hostels all over the United States. My favorite part of any hostel stay is for the social experience, and the staff can really make it or break it. For this, I have to give The Philadelphia House top marks. These are good, good people who genuinely care about the guests and the experience. The staff takes immense pride in creating a welcoming we're-all-friends-here environment. Great job guys! I had a blast! -SD James
