    Stayed for 5 nights - WONDERFUL PLACE! Mark, the owner was super accommodating and helpful throughout the stay. The entire staff was friendly. Walking distance from pretty much everything you need - As a healthcare worker, I was super pleased with how clean the living and public spaces were - Sanitizer spray available everywhere. Pool table and board games where fun. I would definitely stop by again the next time I am in Philadelphia! Awesome value and experience!

    The room was more private than we were expecting. The bathrooms were big and clean, and it was located right in the middle of where we needed to be.

    Very friendly and helpful staff at reception. Rooms and bathrooms well equipped. Free pool table in new condition. Plenty of charging points for your electronics. It is on a side street but very close to several museums and restaurants/bars/takeaways. Professionally run. (my only negative would be the elderly cleaning lady who likes to hang out at the reception. She is not particularly customer friendly and lacks simple customer service skills - like using the words please and thank you. She has an abrupt manner and seems to take pleasure in telling people what to do and how to do it. Rather offputting)

    Very pleased

    I highly recommend the Apple Hostel and would stay here again in a heartbeat. The hostel is close to many attractions, restaurants, and public transit stops. I felt safe and the facility was very quiet and comfortable.

    This is my friend and I first time staying at the hostal and it was amazing. We’re planning to go back and staying at the same place. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. I recommend it. When arriving we thought it was going to be bad but it took us by surprise and will definitely come back.

    It was a place to sleep and I would do it again.

    I was in Philadelphia for a concert. The subway and parking garage were both within a 5 minute walk. First time staying at a hostel. I didn't get back until after midnight. I slept in an 18 bed dorm. I found a vacant bed in the dark while others were asleep. I was disappointed that someone took my pillow but I didn't bother complaining considering the late hour. It was a safe and extremely affordable place to get some sleep. I found the to be professional and pleasant. I would return in a heartbeat.
