About Apple Hostels of Philadelphia
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!
A little about…
Mickey’s life is a tale of rags to riches. Mickey was abandoned at the USA Hostels Hollywood hostel when he was just 5 months old. As adorable as he was, the staff took him in and quickly trained him to do their jobs. Before he knew it, he was checking in 20 guests at a time, cleaning the toilets and doing the reports. All this while negotiating contracts with the hostel’s vendors. Realizing that he deserved more for all this than just dog food and belly rubs, he set out to create the world’s best hostel.

Marc has more then 15 years experience in the hostel business. Originally from Montreal, Canada, Marc moved to California in 1998 and joined USA Hostels where he helped grow the company into one of North America's finest chain of hostels. In 2007 he set out with Mickey and Ines to form Apple Hostels, in what they hope will be another success story. At the very least, it should keep them out of trouble for a while.
Marc's interrests include travel, home renovation, hiking and ballroom dancing.

Ines has travelled all over the world including Europe, India, New Zealand, Africa, and North America. When she was not busy discovering new places she worked as an architect in Berlin, New York and the UK. After meeting Mickey and Marc she decided to settle in the US and to help grow Apple Hostels into one of the best looking hostel chains in the world. Ask her about the awards she has received in innovative shed design.

Tim has lived in Philadelphia for the past eight years. He also sucks at saving money, so he is the king of having a good time on a budget; whether it is cheap shopping or cheap drinking. As far as his travels, he recently was able to check Paris off his list of destinations to visit but he still has a list of cities and countries he wants to see. In short, for a good time talk to Tim.
