I loved staying at City House Hostels in Philly. I think part of why I loved the city so much was the great and comfy atmosphere in the hostel as well as the warm and welcoming people. Will definitely come back 🙂

You can't beat the price here, and you get a great value for your money. Stayed on a Saturday night with a friend, and we were excited for the bar crawl. Although only 3 people (us being 2) showed up, Jayden the host took us out and helped us enjoy the city. The staff at the hostel were very friendly and helpful whenever we had questions. Would definitely stay here again.

Just stayed one night, the people working there were very kind and helpful. Overall everything was good, my only negative point is the water temperature in the shower. I was not able to get that up to a tolerable temperature.
