good hostel atmosphere, good working wifi, helpful staff, fair location (not in the loop but close enough). If you are looking for a good hostel in Chicago this is definitely the one.
well this is a hostel :)
I like this hostel's comfortable atmosphere. It was clean and quiet.
As you may already notice, this hostel is located far from downtown. So you must take a bus or subway approximately 15min to get there. However, there were some lovely shops and cafés around the hostel, you need not to care about the place to eat.
Nice hostel, but private rooms are too expensive for what they offer
Staff was great. The location was a perfect blend of quiet neighborhood, but with plenty of restaurants nearby and close to downtown. Recommend utilizing the Clark avenue buses to connect to the L.
Rooms and hallways were a bit too sparse. A few details would go a long way - some bright paint, a small desk or side table, a shelf over the sink.
Great location...great staff...awesome facilities....great city...comfortable beds...
The location of the building is simply fantastic, in a historic neighbourhood, close to many convient store, bars and pubs!
The basement rooms are sometimes dark and gloomy. The cleaness wasn`t good enough sometimes.
Staff where excellent. Good laundry facilities. Overall really great. Nice quiet area.
The usual hazard of group accommodation I wad probably the one waking everyone up.
Friendly welcoming, big nice breakfast, clean room, cosy common area's ... everything perfect
free breakfast common area location
check in time is 3pm wet toilet floors soap vending machine malfunction
Great variety at breakfast, large bathrooms, good wifi
Not many young people around to chat, mingle with when I stayed
Great staff. Located a bit out of the cbd, right where all the locals hang out Everything is prepared if you ever have a question
Messy toilets in the basement ensuite dorms. And these dorms are pretty stuffed too. The upstairs dorm is much nicer, but the location of the bathroom is off and means that you have to cross the lobby in order to take a shower Upstairs bathrooms are spotless, this comment only concerns the ensuite dorms
I liked almost everything. This is a well located, nice and friendly hostel. I can recommend it to anybody.
I didn't have plug in next to my bed and on the first day my T-shirt was stolen from the bathroom.
Perfect location, staff was really friendly and helpful, the have an elevator and WiFi connectivity was really good in my bedroom
Breakfast is really basic, but they have a huge fridge where you can store your own food.
Staff were friendly Good WiFi Breakfast
Location & easy access. Very nice staff and friendly ambience. Full of energy and mostly young guests. Good & healthy breakfast.
A bit small room size. Facility for tea/coffee/hot water of vending machine may be kept available for 24hrs
Breakfast was great!! Kitchen staff, too. Great patio. Location can't be better if you don't want to be downtown but not too far from it, either. Close to beaches and public transport (buses and trains).
Guests partying on the patio AFTER 10pm (sometimes until 1am) despite signs not to do so. Rule is apparently not enforced. We found it a tad expensive for the expected absence of luxury and service and the fact that it is not located downtown.
Lockers are available, breakfast is served
It's located in a very nice, beautiful neighborhood with convenient public transportation. Free parking also just next block. Nice breakfast and helpful staff.
Staff was very useful, the location is great, outside the Loop, but in a peaceful and wonderful neighbourhood, close to the Lincoln Park, easy to go downtown with the bus or the metro. Really nice kitchen where you can store your food and cook is great also.
The activities, the staff, the price.
The sinks in the bathroom were awful. The water, no matter how you tried to spray it, spewed everywhere.
There was a lovely staff and great accommodation. However the bathrooms were not prefectly clean always and also far away from the room.
location, close to the most beautiful parts of Chicago, within walking distance of Lincoln park, lake Michigan, the loop. Met lovely people and staff were very helpful and friendly.
Beds could have been more comfortable.
Great location north of the city. A subway station is at walking distance. Staff friendly and helpful.
No juice included in the breakfast, unless you buy some.
ability to socialize, industrial kitchen, the decor, computer access, location, and staff
squeaky bunk beds and breakfast could be extended to 10 or 1030...some like to sleep when on vacation
Very nice building in a very good neighborhood, very friendly staff, perfect wifi! Close to public transport, the lake, shops and restaurants!
We had a room with two beds that was very small. It's pretty loud when people are talking in the aisles or use the neighboring restroom.
