Location encourages a pedestrian experience as the property is in the heart of Philadelphia - the center of the places and events of the Revolutionary

3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The staff were very pleasant. The lobby and restrooms were kept tidy. There was a large roach that came in through the windows so perhaps it would be best to keep the widows closed during the summer since there are no screens. Also it would be helpful for staff to enforce quiet hours in the late night. There were guests on the 3rd floor of the east building who loitered in the hallways from 11pm-2am, with a child which was pretty surprising. Overall it was a decent stay, but if there are no repercussions for folks who disturb other guests than this behavior will persist.

A first time turns into a regular time
It was my first time staying in Apple Hostels of Philadelphia, and I was very happy with my stay. I was impressed at how committed the staff was at cleaning and making every part of the facility as clean and sanitized as possible. All staff members were wearing face masks at all times, and on several occasions I saw various staff members cleaning, laundering, sanitizine, etc. Every staff member was professional, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. If I had a question, they had an answer. I especially enjoyed seeing the diversity of the staff; male, female, light-skinned, Black, Hispanic, Caucasian, etc. Also, there were various age ranges, too. I was especially happy to discover that this facility has a private room, which I honestly had no idea hostels offered, and I was more than happy to stay in that one. Thje queen-sized bed was very comfortable, the pillows were perfect, and I especially enjoyed the blackout curtains and the chair by one of the windows which is perfect for reading a book. I have no doubt that when I travel by myself to Philadelphia again, I shall happily return to Apple Hostels of Philadelphia.
