  • No exaggeration: the best hostel I've ever stayed at. You can't beat the location, the staff are incredible, the guests are a ton of fun, it was clean, inexpensive, safe, and had a great atmosphere. Not only is it a great place to stay, but they really form a sense of community by encouraging guests to hang out in the common room, mingle with fellow travelers and staff, and go out as a group for for karaoke, pub crawls and walking tours. I wouldn't hesitate to come back!

  • The staff and guests were super-friendly. The bunk beds were a tad uncomfortable, but they did the trick. The location was great and was close to where I was going in downtown, passing the Liberty Bell every day. I wouldn't recommend groups of people come here - there are nearby hotels that are a better idea. But if you're an individual traveler and like to meet and socialize, this is your place.

  • After spending 6 days on the road, we were very happy to stay in a hostel which felt much more like home than a hostel, actually:). Not just because of its facilities, but mainly thanks to people running the hostel.
