Great comfort. Impecable conditions. Awesome location.
The Stuff (Kyle) from the reception was really nice and helpful. Breakfast was totally fine, I was surprised how many I choices I had! I would always come again! One from the best hostel I ever stayed in:)
The breakfast room need to be cleaner!
I liked how cheap it was for what I was getting. :)
It was clean, Diversity and friendly atmosphere. Close to where i need to be.
there was odor to the blankets and pillows although sheets smelt clean. I suggest Pillow covers or wash pillows frequently and wash blankets. they should not have any odor of others.
I loved the laid back atmosphere, main common spaces. I loved the large screen TV!
It was great to have a free breakfast, but would have appreciated some protein and not all carbs...add some hard boiled eggs.
The staff are pretty nice people! If you have to share a room the other people in it are generally nice! It's a huge space! Everything is so nice for he cost!
My keycard door was rather difficult to use on my last day.
I loved the staff, they helped me with my many transportation questions (trains, etc) nice people in the front desk!
firmed bed and big space in the room. great breaskfast in the morning
like hotel not hostel, need warm from staffs
Spaceous. Maintained. Front desk info. breakfast.
Close to metro, noisy.
I appreciated the front desk staff accommodating my bottom bunk request.
Location was ideal!
Bathroom door clicked...no major complaints
Easy to experience Chicago
Great location and facilities. Big dining room and good breakfast. Helpful staff in general
Constant use of key card (even on the elevator)
Price, cleanliness, breakfast (good coffee), location
I met wonderful people from foreign lands. The location was great. The staff was very informative. and you can't beat the value! Fantastic time!!!
The mattress was very uncomfortable the first night. I switched to a different room the second night and the mattress was fine.
I like everything,m
I was usually satisfied with other HI hostel in USA, but HI Chicago was even better than those! It was really big hostel, so the room was spacious. Also it is near the every tour spot of Chicago, so you can easily travel by walk.
Near the hostel, there was a railroad. So, it might be a bit noisy in some room. But for me, it was not that much especially at night.
Very clean, spacious rooms, friendly people and staff , great for lonely travellers , great way to make friends from all part of the world ! Excellent location!
The wi-if just worked on the second floor, maybe to force people to not stay inside of the room, and get in touch with other people.
I like the place it is at the heart of the city and the staffs are friendly. I like the most is I saved a lot of money. Keep it up and God bless
Nice & clean facilities. Good location, 10min walking towards Loop center. Has common lounge where you can heaten & eat your food.
The corner where the hostel is located seems pretty dark & unsafe at night. My bed got super cold at night as well, maybe the window wasnt fully closed.
First off all, I think I was pretty lucky with the 4-bed room (female). #501, handicap friendly, was more like an apartment with kitchen bathroom, living room space and two 4-bed dorm rooms. It was clean, beds were made and I had just one friendly roommate. GREAT location, very walkable and save! Wif worked very well. Early check in around 9am was possible!
Breakfast was not nice. Just carbs, carbs and more carbs but probably for that price normal.
The hostel is very nice.
