Wifi was really poor. I couldn't connect to it when I was in my room.
Near to downtown and united center Lots of restaurant around Helpful staff
cleanliness can be better
everything is awesome.
wifi, please get a better one.
- shared restroom, bathroom clean - room clean - nice receptionist
- steep stairs, no elevator - poor wifi - room noisy when window open, little stinky when closed - poor breakfast
The staff there is really nice especially the one who stayed at the front desk on the 19 October night.
the wifi there is really weak, when i stayed there I connect the other wifi that come from no where
Overall is good and near the Blue line UIC-Hastle station
wifi signal is not stability in hotel, hope they can improve it
they had wifi It was cheap Staff was nice Location was good
quality of the rooms wasn't the greatest
Walking distance to union station.
Bunk beds - 4 sets of bunk beds on one room
Price and bathroom
It's cheap and have a free breakfast!
no elevator, it's u have big luggage, u have to think about it!
The location of the hostel is perfect, less than a minute by walking to take the train.
Unfortunately, the restrooms aren´t enough for all the guesses. Sometimes it´s difficult find a empty bath to take a shower.
fair price for a couple of nights. enjoyed breakfast too
Very noisy during night, probably men chatting loudly on the street
Enjoyed the breakfast, the dining room management & staff--recognized us when we ate at the restaurant next door; friendly, good hosts! Room was spotless; lighting excellent.
Could have used a chair in our room, but can see why there isn't room for one. Could have used an extra blanket.
Was pretty conveniently close to Walgreens for essential items you forget, rooms/bathrooms were very clean, with chill public areas (including a fridge).
The bathroom stalls were hella small, couldn't even sit on the toilet without hitting the stall wall in front. Not a deal breaker, but a bit irksome. Also the continental breakfast was very plain, but hey at they prices we pay to stay here guess we can't expect some extravagant meal.
Friendly and helpful staff. Location was amazing.
That I couldn't stay longer in this great place
They are very warmhearted
The wifi is so bad that I can't contanct my friends
The girls shower
24 hour desk attendance, breakfast available 3 hours every day, refrigerator, lockers and hot water jug available, access to good laundry facilities, friendly and helpful staff, good rates, very convenient to city train, and amtrak and train to airport and downtown.
Only that couldn't lock door in toilet
Location and nearby laundry.
Climbing stairs with heavy luggage. A fellow traveler was kind enough to assistant.
The location was nice.
The hot temperature of the room
It's very close to the Blue line subway and an easy ride into the city. Breakfast included hot cereal and eggs!
Everything was okay! We liked locations of this hotel and infrastructure. I liked laundry opposite the hotel! Stuff was almost good) We arrived Aug 26 th and the women on front desk who worked in the early morning and another who worked in the noon were awesome. Thank you very much them!
Stuff on front desk who worked Aug 26 in evening one man and woman. Was kinda rude and we did not like their attitude to my friend. She arrived so late and needed help! But maybe this help was not include. So maybe I'm wrong that I'm writing it in here. In general everything was okay!
Arrogance of staff lady.. No internet working people at all and lady says I am the first person to complaint so therefore I am wrong and she is right.
