The hostel was on a narrow alley and was terribly difficult to find. But on the upside they had updated their network to support multiple streaming users at the same time.

I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay! We're not located in an alley, we're located on Bank Street. The side streets in Philadelphia are very narrow, and Bank Street is actually one of the widest side streets in Philadelphia. We are very easy to find if you follow the directions or look at a map. We're fortunate to be on a side street because there is very little traffic so although we're in the centre of Philadelphia's historic district, it is very quiet.

5 out of 5

The employees are extremely helpful and friendly.

Great location in old town. They have coupon stamps at the front desk for a diner around the corner, beautiful morning walk through the shaded streets. It was something small but it made my trip to philly.
