  • How does one secure their belongings? I’ve never stayed at a hostel.

    We have very secure lockers that are free to use, you just have to have your own padlock. If you don't have a padlock you can purchase one at the hostel for $5 or you can rent one for $3. Our lockers have electrical outlets inside them so that you can charge your electronic devices securely while you're away. The lockers in our 4 and 6-bed dorm rooms are 18 inches (45.7 cm) wide, by 19 inches (48 cm) deep, by 35 inches (89 cm) in height. They’re large enough to fit rucksacks and carry on size suitcases. The lockers for our 10 and 18-bed dorm rooms are not large enough to fit an entire suitcase or rucksack, they are meant for securing valuables such as passports, money, laptops, cameras as well as any jackets and other clothing that you may feel concerned about. These lockers measure 12 inches (30.5 cm) wide, by 17 inches (43 cm) deep and 35 inches (89 cm) in height.

  • Will you always have to share a room with another person?

    If you select a dorm room, you will be sharing the room with other travelers. The number of people you share the room with depends on the number of beds in the room and how busy we are during your stay. If you would like to have a room to yourself you would need to select a private room, such as a Private room with queen bed, Private room with bunk beds or a Family Room.

  • Is this a college dorm or is it open to the public? Is their parking?

    We're a hostel, so you must have proof that you live more than 40 miles from Philadelphia to stay with us, such as a DL with an address that is more than 40 miles away; or a foreign passport (not American). We recommend the Ritz East parking garage.

  • With covid, are shared rooms being filled to capacity? (Booking all of the beds in a 6 bed room?) Thanks.

    We will spread out our guests as much as possible so that we have the fewest amount of guests in each room, which we do normally anyway, but if we are completely full, which can happen, then the dorm room might be at full capacity.
