    Loud and bright

    Location I suppose

    Lots of roommates using flashlights and loudly packing their bags past quiet hours, asked to stop but continued, right next to a very loud and bright street. Ended up leaving and sleeping in the airport instead. Absolutely miserable unless you’re more into partying than sleeping.

    Solo trip to Philly

    I loved my hosts Nixon, Nya, and Wesley. They made my stay there incredible and fun! We played games and had activities that other hostels have not had. They had everything I needed and took the time to get to know all of their guests and try to remember their names. Other hostels I’ve stayed at do not have that level of engagement! As a Store Manager of over 5 years, if I had associates that reacted the way they did I would continuously give them raised each review period/each year! I will certainly take the time to come back here with my other NC friends!! Plus, Nixon is from that area and we connected on bring from the same hometown! Very friendly experience from the guests and the hosts alike.

    Seemed like a very low number to have only 2 showers on the floor I was on. It was intended to be used for about 15 guests I’d say. Seems like 4 showers would have been more appropriate. Maybe when it’s renovation time, take certain initiatives into consideration?

    Clean place

    At the entrance everyone takes off their shoes. The entire hostal was clean. Everything worked.
