Hi Karl,

I'm sorry if you found our hostel to be overpriced. We offer many free or inexpensive activities every night and are located in the heart of Old City in Center City Philadelphia. There are cheaper options if you don't mind being out of Center City. We have free wireless througout the building, I'm sorry if you weren't aware of this. We usually mention this to each of our guests when they check in and its on the information sheet of each bed in the hostel.

Liked: The Location could not have been any better! The staff were really nice, fun and helpful. It was probably the cleanest hostel i've ever stayed at. They haed a movie night and a $2 ghost walk tour with a free beer provided at the end... I had a great experience there and would definitely stay there again given the chance!

Disliked: the wifi speed was a bit lagging, but hey, it was FREE, not gonna grumble!

Hi Alea,

I'm very happy that you had a great time at our hostel! Our wireless internet is incredibly fast, but because of the several different types of devices that all of our guests use (laptops, iPhone, iPads, Blackberries etc) our routers can get messed up and we have to restart them. Sorry if this happened during your stay. Hope you enjoy the rest of your travels! ~Marc

Liked: The events they put on each night in the common room.

Disliked: Three showers and three toilets for a 20+ bed dorm room. I found most of the front desk staff to be unfriendly/unwelcoming. Outrageously expensive (comes with having a monopoly on accommodation in the city center I guess).
