About Our Hostel
To us, the apple represents the place where you are – the source of knowledge and wisdom.
We understand that you’ve travelled from all corners of the planet seeking new places, new friends, and new adventures. You’re not satisfied with simply knowing where you’re going or how to get there – you crave an experience informed by newfound sights, sounds, tastes, and ideas. In short, you want to know where you’ve been.
Apple Hostels was dreamt about for quite some time but finally came together in the spring of 2008 when we purchased the Bank Street Hostel, located in the Old City just steps from Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and surrounded by great pubs, bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Our goal is to have the best reviewed hostel in North America, so having a great building in the perfect location has gotten us off on the right foot. Now we want to be sure to offer each of our guests a clean and safe environment, the friendliest and most knowledgeable employees, and a great variety of tours and activities.
We hope to get the opportunity to meet you and have you as one of our guests. Please be sure to let us know if there’s anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, either by completing one of our surveys or writing directly to one of our staff listed below. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
