Apple Hostels of Philadelphia

Really friendly staff. Good events for meeting other people. Would have been nice to have an elevator to use. Washrooms could have been cleaner, water pressure in showers sucked. Loved the free wifi in rooms. Location was alright, could have been more central.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Really friendly staff. Good events for meeting other people. Would have been nice to have an elevator to use. Washrooms could have been cleaner, water pressure in showers sucked. Loved the free wifi in rooms. Location was alright, could have been more central. Having to get the new codes each day was annoying. Big rooms with many people was a bit impersonal. The room temperatures were a bit cold to sleep in at night. Additional unexpected charges aswell was not delightful.
