Shared bathrooms. Somewhat uncomfortable bed.
Helpful Staff Nice Rooms Clean Good WiFi
What I liked most was the relative in expensiveness to stay in a place that was well kept and located perfectly near amenities I could enjoy.
Wi-fi was a bit slow at times.
Pancake breakfast Layout Rooftop Interaction with staff and other travellers
Not much storage space in our 10 person dorm Limited power points
Olivia and Sam are a super friendly and helpful staff! The common area and the roof terrace are awesome! The location is the best ever!
Rooms without windows and messy roommates Can be noisy at night, a lot of people come and going
Friendly, helpful staff. Really good accommodations for the price. Rooftop deck was a great time. Clean. Everyone staying there was very friendly and respectful.
People kind of come and go at all hours. I woke up at 4 am one night because a group of people had just arrived back. but this was on a weekend so maybe that had something to do with it.
Guys that work in ihsp, you are the best;) did a real favour for me and friends when we were having troubles with getting around in Chicago.
We could not control an ac, so got very cold at night, didn't have any silverware in a room
Staff are lovely Best hostel I've stayed in Other guests are really friendly and chatty
Excellent location for my needs -- not downtown but convenient to subway and my other activities; friendly staff; liked the neighbourhood; economical (short trip, for business and personal reasons). Easy and safe to stay there as a single person. Offered good facilities to people using it as a hostel -- e.g. kitchen, common room. I did not have a problem with shared bathroom during my short stay. Would definitely recommend to people traveling on a budget or who want a simple place to stay.
IHSP was fine for me but might not appeal to people looking for a more typical, upscale hotel atmosphere, with larger, more comfortable rooms and private bathroom, etc.
Wifi really fast
Staff is awesome. I love the roof deck and it's a great place to hang out and meet new people.
Good price, good location (next to blue line train which takes 5min to downtown), rooftop!!! ;), friendly and helpful staff
the staffs are very friendly
The gal who checked me in on Saturday around 4Pm and check me out Sunday treated me exceptionally well and was very responsive to my needs. So a big thanks from a traveler who had been up most of the previos night getting there.
It was the perfect location, just few steps from the Blue line! It was very clean and with an awesome roof! The people working and staying there were all awesome! I stayed in 3 different hostels while I was in Chicago because they didn't have availability, but if I ever came back, I'll definitly go to IHSP! Buena onda!
Awesome rooftop deck. All the people at the front desk were great and very helpful. Great location next to a lot of shops and a 24-hour Walgreens.
Beds were uncomfortable.
Great location. Excellent facilities. Everyone has to see the whale on the rooftop.
Would have liked more power outlets closer to bunk beds.
location - convenient and secure staff (Sam) were very friendly free wifi rooms had character, were generally clean free breakfast was a nice perk, as was the common area fridge and ice maker air conditioning
floors and washrooms were not always the cleanest - no cleaning products were available in the washrooms. doors to private rooms had shuttered windows so the light shone through all night.
The staffs were awesome and the services and facilities are good regardless of their average standards.
The wifi was quite slow sometimes.
The overall location, staff and facility are pretty nice, and it's very easy to get to the location.
The bed where i stay in is a little shaky and make a huge noise when i turn my position.
The cultural exchange from the other hostelries.
Being woken up rudely in the Wee hours of the morning.
Is a very good place to stay, is cheaper and the location is very good. The staff was very kind and helpfull.
We are in front of the bathroom so, there were noise
I've stayed in a few hostels and this was by far the best!
The place and the people are very good. I loved the roof deck and the atmosphere of the place, everything is simple and useful.
