Staff, price, WiFi, location, place
Excellent stay friendly staff nice clean beds and bathrooms. Pool table, tv room free computers, nighty event's. Lots of restaurant's in walking distance. I'll always stay at this location when in town for business.
None everything was excellent.
I like their free breakfast and wifi. Super speed wifi, very good !
I wish the bed can be softer and the blanket can be thicker, the heat can be warmer ! Its a bit cold in the middle of the night with the thin blanket while the heat isnt strong enough to keep you warm.
The stuff, the value, the breakfast, the location.
I came a long way from Finland and this hostel met my criteria perfectly. This hostel was even better than I expected. My room was neat and tidy. Bathrooms were very well maintained. There were a lot of space for all my belongings. The location is safe and easy to find when you know where to go. Loved the whole experience! I will remember this hostel when planning a visit to Chicago.
There were waffles almost every morning. Not a big fan of sweet breakfast.
Loved the people that you get to meet and the hostel feel!
Best hostel i ever stay. Friendly staf. Occasional event.awesome people
Location was pretty good, staff were good, facilities were good, free meals on Sunday evenings were good.
Wifi up on the 3rd level was terrible.
Wifi didn't work in room.
Mary and Jake were great members of staff. Always smiling. Such a great place. clean, comfortable and above all the cheapest place iv ever stayed. When people say if it seems untrue it probably is. this breaks that rule.
some of the people waking me up in my dorm. but that is their fault and is to be expected
Staff friendly and helpful, room nice and clean (I had a private), huge common area, organised pub crawl (tho I didn't go, it's available), location is great, near loads of bars, restaurants, it's where you want to be in the evenings when downtown closes up shop. I used to live in the area, so I know!
Only minor complaint was the bathroom was far away from my room. Other than that, highly recommended!
Great place in a really nice location. walking distance to the Lincoln park zoo which is lovely & can view the stunning skyline from the park. Really well managed. Super price for a private room, excellent free breakfast, & nice chill out areas with computers. They provide maps, & info, what more could you ask really. Looking forward to returning in the summer.
1. There have a lot of event in the night. Such like Lincoln park night light or popular pub leading by hostel tour guide. 2. Staff very friendly. 3. Breakfast is very rich it's enough to getting start in the morning.
Quality roommate's no way to guarantee that if you fear noise please bring their own earplugs, so you can sleep well at night.
Good location and price. Nice staff and facility! Wonderful free breakfast and kitchen!!!
Very clean place to stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful when we asked about routes and sight seeing. They went above what I expected to make this trip wonderful.
We drove to Chicago and it was insanely hard to find parking. We had to pay 28 dollars to park our car at the hostel. I really wished we knew that before.
It was cheapest hotel that days ad location was perfect with good food shops around , cages and etc and close to city center ( I never used metro just walking!) stuff was good, maybe too friendly and talkative sometimes.
The African club near by so there was a "party "every night in my room cz I could hear the music sooo loud!! But that was only on the second floor rooms.. Toilets are terrible in term of they r common and there are two cubicles and the doors stops and knee level.. Imagine))) it is like u r peeing with someone else together..)) the rest was fine. I was in mixed bedroom for four with three guys ( I m girl)
Staff is amazing.
Need to improve on facilities like more charging points, cleaning in rooms and bathrooms.
It is an awesome cheap hostel with great people working there;
one little problem - as I found - only one WC on the floor, but for certain people.
Great location in a residential neighborhood yet close to shops, restaurants and bars with transit nearby.
Got there in a winter "heatwave" and it took a while for the heat to respond but the room's heating is individually controlled. Not really a problem.
The programs they organize and the atmosphere, it feels like staying at home
The airconditioning sometimes makes cold air, and it's right winding to my bed.
the staff, the guests, the location, the kitchen, the quiet (i was there in winter), the amenities, the luggage room, the breakfast
my floors weren't that clean
Very friendly staff, lots of activities, close to public transport, many pubs and restaurants nearby, close to grocery stores, comfortable common areas, large kitchen
Beds are squeaky, there were power outlets only by some of the beds in the room.
Very nice staff. It was a confortable experience!
Was a awesome location in the north side. The hostel aw great with taking people out on pub crawls etc.
