This Chicago hostel is in Lincoln Park and is a few blocks from the Fullerton subway station. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout this hostel.
Score from 636 reviews Very good
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.
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
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.
+ Great location (they pay the 5-dollar CTA ticket from O'hare if you have the receipt) however O'hare-Damen blue line stop does not have elevator. (lovely luggages..) + Very friendly and helpful staff, + Breakfast, coffee
- No windows in the room, - Wifi in the room did not work at all. - Little bit noisy corridor.
You have pros working here who are inconsiderate and rude....and my last reservation was cancelled without notice within minutes of my early arrival 3 Hours early and the guy there was an ads about it even though it was against the policy so I went to tO another hostel.....I think you should remove people who misrepresent your bbusiness...he even said that he cancelled it but knew nothing of how to resolve the issue if I had not chosen to go to other hostel he would have just made more excuses I was planning on being at this hostel every other week because of location but this made me wonder if the staff here was discriminatory for any reason because to this day I sit don't know why or how this guy was allowed to cancel my reservation just because I decided to pay cash d according to your policy I had at late at 6pm before reservation could be cancelled and my card was actually fine ....he claims it declined but if so why did the other hostel have no problems I let it go at the time but I still wonder about this hostel on Damen I don't think anybody should be mistreated when it comes to business I am from Beverly Hills,Ca and even there I was never discriminated against my whole life nor in Texas where I just left working on a project I hope you people are aware of this kind of activity I don't believe it represents your business properly thanx
Wicker Park has wonderful restaurants and shopping. After viewing the pictures and other comments I chose this for us.
It was very noisy at times and our room was right off the kitchen.
The only good the was the location. The customer service was adequate. The common room area and the ability to mingle with other guests was appreciated.
The Wi-Fi was terrible, our room was cramped (and probably against fire code regulations), there were only two sinks on the entire floor, the toilets were in a poor state. What they consider breakfast is an embarrassment.
The room didn't have window and fresh air.
Terrible bathroom set up.
breakfast, service of frontdesk, location!
little bit cold in the room, but we couldn't control the temperature. asked frontdesk about that, but not accepted...
Convenient location to transit system, and to home base
loose usage of meaningful words. never experienced hostel life before. should have spelled out exactly what getting. On booking said i twin rm. with two twin beds-got bunk. With shared bathroom? should spell out shared with whole floor and X# of people.Is bunk room different rate then two twin beds. Q's ask me.
-Bad Stuffs -Dirty Room
