Location: Safe neighborhood and everything was within walking distance to DePaul. Free wifi and use of laptops, printer was a nice bonus. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall great experience for first time staying in a hostel. Exceeded our expectations.
It's a hostel. So no frills. But everything was well maintained and very clean.
I needed to come into town for 2 concerts that weren't playing in my hometown. I needed to keep costs low and just needed a place to sleep without high hotel rates, etc. The hostel was the perfect option. Staff and vibe of hotsel was great, easy to locate, and close to a main commuter train stop to get downtown. Highly recommended.
The location seems worrying , without positive means of transportation , but once the room discovery is delightful. Beautiful and spacious , nice decor, huge TV , Bath .... the couple hotel manager is very helpful. They can pick you up or drop you from / to the bus depot to the airport ( HUDSON SHUTTLE ) . I recommend this place for couples, families , conveyed preferences .
the location difficult if not conveyed
Kitchen and laundry facilities, activities board was very useful and up to date. TV room by kitchen area and down stairs with bigger screen. The kitchen staff were excellent! Nice outside BBQ area.
Reception staff only had local knowledge and not enough information on downtown area or other attractions. Bed a bit short although comfortable. The bedroom pick up all sounds outside the room including the lift arrival bell (ping) and people walking along the corridor and of course any talking. The was sometimes disturbing during the night.
Very good location, clean room, perfect for parents with 2 kids. Breakfast was fine.
Really TOO much a noise at night. Young adults, who are the majority of clients just think it is party time the whole night ... And nobody tell them anything ?!!? It is a shame.
The location, even though not in the heart of Chicago it was easy to get everywhere and the area was really nice. Breakfast and all the facilities were great. I would Highly recommend staying here if your visiting Chicago.
It could be a little cheaper and the wifi was really slow.
Hot showers Clean bathroom Breakfast Walking distance to bus & cta
My credit card information was stolen after I used it here. The staff didn't seem alarmed at all and did nothing; no offer to reduce our fees or any other offer. I felt like they didn't care. Be careful!
The hostel is located in a nice and calm neighbourhood; however, it is not far from spots where locals come for entertainment. The hostel was clean, staff very friendly. There is a big dinning room and a terrace where you can have a barbecue. There are also computers, but in some time there is a queue for theme. In the morning great breakfast
Good breakfast, big kitchen, excellent location. Big hostel!
Too small amount of power sockets per dorm.
the wifi and breakfast were good.
when my friend and I arrived there, they gave us the wrong room. So I asked them to change the room. Except that it is quite fine.
proximity to public transportation
service at the reception lots of info about the city
bed - not confortable at all rooms - weird pictures on the wall
The location was great. We could walk to shops, restaurants, and the metro. Very close to the zoo, and the lake. Free breakfast The staff was very friendly
- Drunk people standing right outside the building talking for hours 2 nights in a row (3 am-5 am) - Small bed for tall husband he didn't get very restful sleep - Rooms were a bit dark but main area downstairs was welcoming
the value for the money is good and the environment is very nice.
There are better hostels in Chicago. The quality of sleep and beds are not very good. The bathroom and toilet are not separated
Location is good enough, bus route and CTA station nearby. Safe area. Public fridge to store food.
Price is fairly high. No private bathroom . Wind was blowing in through the window at night. Hygiene is not good enough.
I liked that the staff was nice and helpful. Nice, cozy joined space at the entrance welcomes you when you arrive. Breakfast is good and divers.
I was very disappointed with the room which was not clean, dust everywhere. The same problem is in joined bathroom. So I suggest some plastic slippers for the shower. But I would cope with that if it wasn’t so cold. The weather in the mid-September was warm and not windy. Regardless that Chicago is known as windy city I didn’t get that impression. I would called this hostel as “windy Chicago hostel” The reason is because the air condition is working even if it is switched off.Outside air rotates the fan and at all times feds cold air in the space. And the air condition is surrounded with some kind of paper which doesn’t isolate the space from outside wind and weather. I think the room cools down under outside temperature. And I think all rooms have the same problem.
Pretty much everything. The staff was friendly and helpful, we were able to make waffles for breakfast and the organised pub crawl was a good way to meet other people.
Very cold in the morning - the winter just started.. :)
Clean room, quality of the breakfast, excellent wifi, facilities of the hotel (printer, tv room, kitchen...)
The room was extremely cold, we even had problems to sleep (we heard other guests complaining also about it, so it was not only our problem). The room was very basic
I am very satisfied for the stay in this hostel. The location is very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is very good,we cook there. I will recommend this hostel to others.
Breakfast was not bad
Room was small, our bed was not clean at all, we informed the staff but they didn't clean it. They did not clean the bedroom every day and the toilettes were dirty.
The rooms were alittle cold at night ,any way thank you
expensive for what is offered, horrible bathrooms, poor breakfast, uncomfortable bed. I know it´s a hostel and I wasn´t expecting any luxury, but this was just awful for the price we paid - almost $150 night for a room with no bathroom.
Staff services and facilities are excellent and philanthropic with good Breakfast.
Bathrooms should be bigger in sizes.
Liked the location, common area, the fact that you can drink on premises.
All the doors seemed to slam and squeak(not good when people coming in and out at any hours of the night). The beds are also terribly squeaky. Those were my main concerns.
The location Staff were friendly and helpful clean The price
lack of breakfast options for vegetarians bunk beds they made noise staying in the basement it smelled funny and I had a light from outside going into my room as I had the top bunk #5 the room was stuffy also even with the air conditioner on
