    Fabulous

    The staff was great! very friendly and helpfull at any time!

    A bit far from the city... i.e, you need 10 min walk to the closest metro station, and a 15 min ride in the metro...

    Superb

    I loved it here. Everyone was so nice and helpful and it was very close to everything. The only downside was noise outside the rooms, but thats to be expwcted in a hostel. I would prefer staying here over any hotel!

    The noise and the fact that you couldnt quietly close the doors to the rooms.

    Good

    I liked the location of the hostel. I thought the front desk staff were friendly. There was a variety of nationalities of guests, which made my stay more interesting. The continental breakfast was good. Overall, the hostel was clean and bright.

    I didn't like a couple things. When I stayed in an 8-person dorm room there was no hand soap in the bathroom. The shower drain also kept backing up whenever I took a shower. I would also have liked to have a power outlet and small light on the wall near my bed so I could charge my phone and be able to see without having to turn on the main light and wake everyone up. On my last 2 nights, I stayed in a private room. My blanket had hair on it and a spot of what looked like food. It was also very small and rough and did cover all of me or the bed. For the price that the hostel charges for a private room (without a private bathroom) this is not good service.

    Very good

    Location is very good, Lincoln park, especially zoo (everything is for free) is fantastic, shops at the Clark Street are very close to the hotel and it's very convenient! Hotel staff is very friendly! Free dinners at saturdays and especially Thanksgiving Day dinner were great! Breakfasts are monotonous (sandwiches, big plus for oranges and bananas), at last week was porridge every day and it was great.

    The rooms and especially bathroom are dirty. Ask the administration to clean the room and tell the room number, we didn't know it. In first, our radiator didn't work (was cold), when it did, it became very hot.

    Friendly staff and nice common areas. The staff wee really nice and helpful.

    The sheets had hairs in them and the bathrooms were disgusting. Hair everywhere, chipped plaster, it felt dirty showering.

    It was a very social atmosphere, with their pub crawls, ect it'd be easy to meet friends. It was also secure and trendy.

    In the one bed, half bath, there's no desk! The room is also very cramped/small. The location is pretty far from the airport, magnificent mile and the train station, so I would book it if you want a social situation and to be close to a good amount of non-touristic restaurants.

    Superb

    the hostel was great. large kitchen which you can use for your own food at any time, very good breakfast, staff was very friendly. i would highly recommend it to anyone.

    rooms should have better ventilation during the night.

    Hotel staff were friendly.

    There were a lot of party kids making noise late night. Some guests let randome strangers who didn't stay at this hostel enter this hostel building so it was not quite safe.

    Very clean. Nice. Comfortable beds. Near Lincoln park. Good place to stay!!!

    Poor wifi in rooms. Anyway you can go to lobby to receive good wifi signal if you really need Internet access.

    Sex with strange girls. Promiscuous African-American bitches. Yummy bodies.

    A snoring guy in our room. That guy was on a farting streak for the whole night. Such a jackass! You shouldn't allow snoring ppl into dorms. That old guy was probably kicked out of his own flat by his wife.

    Great location, affordable rates, and well maintained. Probably the best hostel I've stayed in so far!

    There was a bug in the bathroom one day. Aside from that, everything else was excellent!
