A different sort of gym...
It may technically be a gym, but a different sort of all-body workout is the norm here. Check the website for daily specials and events.

      So I'm currently here... I went to the front because my TV doesn't work.. I was told they are not working (which is a lie) but all of the other TV's in rooms are on and I went in an empty room and turned one on to check... And it is indeed on. So even though I paid just as much as everyone else to get in here they don't seem to honor fair business practices. So, I'd like to know who the owner is ideally but until then, I'll just bitch to every review place and person I know. I even tipped the front desk guy... Big mistake, huge.

      Came in on a Tuesday around 2pm. On their website it says they are running a half-priced room special on Tuesdays. I thought it would be a great opportunity to check the place out and maybe come back on a weekend. When I was buzzed in, I was "greeted" by a dude who looked like he had just woken up from a nap in the back. When I asked about the special, he said it was only for members and gave me a blank stare. He said, If you aren't a member it would be $35. I said, that's not what it says on the website. Non-member rate on the Tuesday special should be $22.50. Blank stare. I wasn't going to argue with him or pull it up on my phone because I was just so turned off by his blasé attitude at that point I didn't want to give him any money. He buzzed me out and I left. Their competition, Club Philly, might not be the newest kid on the block, but compared to this place, their attendants are always helpful and professional. Take your business to where they actually try to make an effort.

      This is the worst bath house I ever seen.
      This place is off the beaten path from the gayborhood in Center City Rittenhouse Square area. From the time you walk in you can tell the management and staff are unprofessional. Anytime you allow clientele to walk around in street clothes or you can smell it legal drugs in the facility. Also the parents that have people living here as well. It does not feel like a place that people come to relax and enjoy ourselves. The lounge area is very cluttered. And I won't ever visit this place again. My best friend wanted to stop in here for his birthday and we simply did not stay as that long paid for a room that was not quite desirable. So we wind up heading to the gayborhood where we spent the night at another bathhouse that was excellent Clean safe and friendly staff... And the guys follow the bath house dress code no one was in street clothes and you did not smell any illegal drugs

      I'm surprised by the bad reviews...
      The last review I see was about a year ago - so either this place has changed A LOT, or the review is bogus - I was there yesterday and think I might head back real late tonight - I liked the place, and I've been to these places all throughout the US, Canada and Europe (and China but women did the f*cking there)...the place was clean, there was soap in every shower (I checked because of the reviews), everything seemed to be working except for one area at the end of the hall where the saunas are, it was closed off and being repaired or painted. The top floor maze, sling room and table/cross rooms are small but very fun :) I got what I needed, a few times.

      Not what it used to be
      This place has gone way down hill.. Help is rude, showers are gross.. Most don't even have soap dispensers.. And good luck getting hot water.. Plants on the deck are half dead, and they start some renovations/ painting that a kindergartner could do a better job at.. I most likely won't be back...

      The Filthiest Bathhouse in Filthadelphia
      Most importantly: There is no soap in the showers. I kid you not. Stall after stall with no soap dispensers. No soap at a bathhouse. How can they legally stay open? What do guys do after they f*ck? The sheets haven't been bleached. The saunas aren't fully functional, and there are construction materials left across the premises. The rules say no clothes in the bathhouse, but half the guys are fully clothed. Guys walk around the place with their camera phones. WTF? Make sure no one takes a picture of you there. The guy at the front desk yells at you if you ring the doorbell to enter. Sansom Street Gym, which bills itself as the cleanest baths in the city, is one of the filthiest bathhouses and certainly the most dilapidated. Not even the lights in the rooms work. Do yourself a favor, don't come here.

      OK, let me start with the good... The second level steam room and sauna were hot. That's it. Kinda what you'd expect, though, so that's not really a compliment. The whole place is in serious need of some updating. Besides the different states of disrepair in the locker rooms, showers, weight room, even in the dark room on the top level (exposed electrical panel!!!) this place is stuck in the 70s. 1970s! That really is true with most of the gay bathhouses in the U.S. The owners of these places need to go across the pond and visit The Boiler or even Apollo Splash Club (which has been around forever) in Berlin and learn how to run a business! This is a great space and location, it really has a lot of potential, but it's run to the ground! Don't waste your hard earned money for this rip off until they renovate. A word about the staff... They were actually really pleasant and trying to work with what they have there. Keeping the place clean, too.

      just love the sound of it
      I have not actually been to this gym, yet. I parked my car in a paid parking lot near by and went back and forth in between my car and the 2020 Sansom st front door, several times. But I just ended up chickening out. My worry was what the people's view on an asian in a place like this... (never had been to one). But sure like the sound of this place as I'm a total bottom with not much preference with the one I get to engage in a sexual play...

      Bring back the ole Sansom Street Gym
      MESSAGE TO ALL: Get over any issues you may have about bathhouses. They're not seedy places where you catch AIDS. Most catch AIDS at the cleanest of places. The building doesn't give diseases, carriers do. Appreciate this public service as much as you can. NYkers would kill for a setup like this and charge much more and would be AMAZING. You are DEFINITELY doing yourself a disservice for not taking advantage. I would give 5 stars, but hafta minus one for the stay policy being changed to 8 hours.

      Fun Saturday night
      Had a hot sexy time with a couple guys over a couple hours after the bars let out. Met a couple of nice daddies and dudes my age...definitely worth the price of admission!

      Quite enjoyable
      Again, being a well travelled sauna slut, I was a little hesitant due to one reviews. Don't be too put off by them. This sauna shits all over NYC ones. The rooms are a great size, the staff are cool and helpful (are you listening, New Yorkers)? It's a decent sized sauna too...enough to get lost in. Free food and beer on the Saturday night was way cool too.
