The shops and access to transportation

We came at night so we were not sure about safety of the area where the hotel is situated. The breakfast was poor. Walls are very thin, so you can hear your neighbours very well.
Not far from the airport, nice receptionists. Good place to stay for 1 night (not longer): clean linen, comfort beds - that's all you need while travelling

Lots of steps.
Could not get any other room for the night. Don't normally stay at this type of hotel (I'm 68), but it was fine for my needs. I would stay here again.

No lift (if that's important for you).
Cool stuff, very good location (dynamic neighborhood, free parking, very close to the L).

Never go to this hotel. You gonna regret for each single penny you pay for this garbage.

No elevator to 4th level so you have to carry all the luggage.
Common area is really nice - with pool table and games. Good breakfast.

the toilet in one of the bathrooms was damaged and was not repaired , so it was running one toilet for every floor hosts 3 and was very uncomfortable because I had to be aware to find the empty bathroom and use it .
good location and friendly staff

I drank too much and I don't remember everything.
Great people, great location, great city.

The location was great. The room was comfortable. The gree breakfast saved us lots of money. We stayed in an 8 person room. We had a big group and everyone enjoyed our stay.

The stairs with my heavy bag haha
The staff were amazing. A block from the train station that will take you anywhere you need. Free breakfast. Great and spacious room. Great vibe. Would definitely stay again.

I suppose the breakfast that was offered wasn't very special. The location was great though with plenty of restaurants around and a grocery next door.
I liked pretty much everything. The staff was great. The young lady at the front desk was cute, friendly, and very helpful when dealing with my luggage.

some of the other guests where a bit immature but that was the guests. Our room was also just below the common room and by 11pm we were able to sleep but hey, they are super cool with getting other guests to respect others and we never had a problem once.
Me and my partner travelled to chicago for the first time and stayed with Urban Holiday lofts. This hostel is by far the best experience we have had. Great helpful and friendly staff, safe environment, sociable with a huge common room, clean, tidy, great free breakfast. Superb location and if you have any questions about anything the staff are so friendly, Jason on the desk was particularly helpful and keen to get to know the guests and help out where he could. I would tell anyone venturing to Chicago to stay here, it is great also for families with kids and mature travellers on a budget.

Wifi speed was terrible

Lacks a big sign out front. Look for the grocery store.
Great hostel in a convenient location with lots of things to do within walking distance.

The only issues I had were more annoyances than anything. The blankets were too small/short for me (evidently they don't want you to bring your own either) and it was very loud- you can hear everything- other people in their rooms, hall ways, outside the building (bring ear plugs).
Urban Holiday Lofts is in a great location in Wicker Park with Bucktown just a few blocks away and tons of good food and drinks and neat stores within walking distance. It's maybe 5 minutes away from the Blue Line that made getting to tourist stuff (museums, Michigan Ave, etc) really quick and easy. Their Wifi was also surprisingly fast and all the staff was super nice. I'm planning on coming back on my next trip to Chicago!

The bed was comfy enough, but I'd definitely suggest asking for extra pillows!! The ones they provide are pretty flimsy.
The location was great, lots of shopping and unique restaurants/bars within a short walk, really close to the Metro (Damen station) and the neighborhood is really nice. Staff was friendly and helpful! We had a private room with an en suite bathroom and the walk-in shower was big enough for two, a great feature!

I did not like the wifi too much. It works some certain times when the hostel is empty but if a couple people are conected it doesn't work to anything but messages and sometimes not even.
They are awesome people and the place is incredably close to the train station wich is also super easy to get anywhere with. The breakfast is very good and the facility is very well maitained. The bathrooms are cleaned all day long and the showers are great. I have no complains to make at all and everything I neede the satff helped me with. They are just te best.

I can't book any more nights, all single rooms booked out ahead of time.
Clean and tidy. Energetic and proactive staff. Jason, you are doing great.

The Hostel is simply amazing. It is still pretty new and the room I stayed in was huge. It had its own bathroom as well as a kitchen. Upstairs, there is a big common area with another kitchen, seats, couches a tv and some Computers to use. They even provide free breakfast! The staff is super nice and friendly. They even carried my bag upstairs :). The area around the hostel is full of Little Shops, boutiques, eateries and bars and it is nice to just walk down the streets and look into the Windows. Also, the Metro is a 2 min walk only and it brings you downtown a well as to O'hare Airport. The Price is cheaper then other hostels and great if travelling on small Budget. You get more then you could expect for that price. Probably the best Hostel I ever stayed at (and there are alot)!

WiFi didn't work so good but that was a temporary
The receptionist/manager was one of the nicest guys I've met for sure. Very welcoming and helpful with lots of tips and knowledge of the area.

The walls are as thin as a paper and the floor cracks with every step. I could barely sleep because of the noise and it was very unpleasant considering I had to wake up early for my flight
Good location and friendly staff

The free wifi has very poor signal strength. Many stairs which is inconvenient with a suitcase.
The rooms have their own bathroom, kitchen and couch. They are very large and there is definitely enough space for 8 people and their belongings. The staff was very helpful and everything was clean. Free breakfast (cornflakes or bagels) is included. 5 minutes to the nearest cta train station (blue line, Damen).
