  • It's the best hostel I've ever been. The staffs are so nice and passion. The room is clean and the activities make everyone in hostel closer. Ryan is really helping. He even carried my stuff to the street for the cab. If I would go to Philly again , I would definitely stay here once again.

  • Pretty decent hotel. A little pricey considering all I had was a bed and ensuite. If you're just passing through it's awesome. Friendly staff and not too fae deom local bars and pubs.

  • Great hostel : 20 beds which make it literally a small house, with great atmosphere and very welcoming staff. Lots of people gather in the evening in the living room, video games, guitars, card games, kitchen... Definitely one of the best hostels I've been to, I recommend it without a doubt. Too bad I stayed only one night really ;)

  • The Philadelphia House is a remarkable place. I was here for several days over a 2 week period, and by the time I left, I felt like I was leaving family. The staff is knowledgeable about everything the city has to offer and friendly in all that they do. The house is clean and welcoming. Everything about my visit I enjoyed and I couldn't recommend a stay here more highly. Simply put, from my opinion and those of other travelers, this is the best hostel there is (domestic or international) PERIOD.
