"Friendly hostel wedged between Independence Hall National Park and Old City, with bunk beds from $30, some private rooms and free games, tea and coffee. No curfews."

"Cash-strapped visitors to Philly are in luck, because this stalwart hostel is planted right in the heart of Old City, just a few blocks from the marquee sights of Independence National Historic Park—the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and all the rest—and right in the middle of the neighborhood's picturesque cobblestoned streets lined by restaurants, art galleries, bars, boutiques, and colonial-era sights" Full review
