All of these things make staying at Apple Hostels of Philadelphia a great value, but it’s our friendly staff and daily tours and activities that make us the travelers’ favorite hostel in Philadelphia!

Please note:
We have private rooms but they are not listed on this website.
In order to safeguard our guests and to uphold the atmosphere of our travelers’ hostel, we require that upon check-in each guest must provide a valid foreign passport, a Canadian driver’s license or out-of-state college ID and government-issued ID. You may also be asked to provide proof of current international travel. As well as having out-of-state identification, the ID must also show that you live outside a 100-mile radius of the hostel.

You must be 18 years of age or older unless accompanied by a parent or a school-appointed chaperon.

There is a 14-day maximum stay for all of our guests.

We are affiliated with Hostelling International, so while a membership is not required, you will need to pay a $3 fee per night if you are not a member.

Sorry, we will not accept reservations for groups of 8 or more, even if made through multiple reservations, and failure to comply with this will result in your booking(s) being canceled with no refund. Please contact the hostel directly for group requests.

Receive a $2 discount per night with your ISIC or VIP Backpackers membership card.

Men who are not traveling with a female are not permitted to check into a mixed/couples-only dorm room. If you are a male, are not traveling with a female and have booked a mixed dorm room, you will not be permitted to check in and your credit card will be charged for the first night for having prevented a couple from reserving their beds.

It should also be noted that you are not viewing the Apple Hostels website, but that of a booking agency.
