Customer review

10 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very nice staff, and location is beautiful in the park, really relaxing, 15 min walk to bus and then half an hour to get into the city, bus runs often enough. No bikes available, unfortunatly, but we had a good time. Be sure to bring some anti mosquito stuff if you like to sit on the porch in the evening. And off course stupid HI-policy: no alcohol allowed on premises, but hey, you get used to that.

SArah hodgson

22 June 2009 SArah would recommend this property

Liked: I really liked the hostel itself, it is set in an old mansion and the atmosphere is lovely. The location is great if you've got a car but otherwise the bus ride from downtown Philadelphia is pretty lengthy and is followed by a walk of a mile or so. However the hostel will let you use their bikes for free and that was a great way to see the city. Would definitely recommend, rooms are very clean and staff are impressively helpful.

Disliked: SArah left no negative feedback.

Liked: It was a beautiful building in Fairmont Park. The lock out from 11am-4:30pm is annoying. Its a 15 min walk to the bus but the price is right. $20 a night you can't beat that!!

William Malone

10 September 2008 William would recommend this property

Liked: For those with classes or meetings at UPenn the Chamounix Mansion Hostels is very "accommodating." It is just 4-1/2 miles from UPenn on city streets, and three-and-a-half of those miles provide bike lanes or wide shoulders. The site also offers a bike path along the river. The desk clerk was notably accommodating.

Disliked: William left no negative feedback.
