If you are backpacking around and are thinking of staying here, don't unless you have a car. The bus takes approx 50 mins one way to get from the city to the closest stop and that is without the wait for the unreliable, infrequent bus and then the walk to hostel. The hostel itself is fine if you keep in mind that it is an old house. Power points are infrequent, wifi only really available in the lounge area, the beds are narrow and the showers don't have any water pressure. The up side is that you do meet a lot of people as everyone is forced into the lounge for the wifi and the hostel hosts are pretty good at getting everyone chatting. I would only stay here again if everything else was booked out and I really wanted to go to Philly.

So, with all my fears behind me, there's nothing left to do but to enjoy my experience and to embark on a new ...
I'm glad I convinced Fiona to come.
Daniel and Luke entertained us with tales of sightseeing and tracking down the Rocky statue. Luke even has a clip of himself running up the steps, stopping for pushups, and then doing shadow boxing.
Tomorrow we head to Washington DC. The weather has been very hot, about 37c today so we are pretty drained by the end of the day.
PS. I have added pictures to all previous ...
... was meeting us along Jay. They gave us a brief guided tour of the city, showing us the city hall, the bell...back in the day of the declaration of independence was signed, some of the arts of the city and of course the rocky steps which Dean is insisting that he runs before we leave. We then headed back to her apartment to meet Jackie her Housemate and Bella the white cat....who in fact must be the furriest cat ever...everything turns white (but cute though). we sat and had a ...
