    Very good

    It was located in one of the nicer areas of Chicago. It was very friendly and safe. It was well lit and secure with keys all throughout. The staff was very helpful and nice

    The restrooms were not properly cleaned. If you are using a community bathroom they should be professionally throughly cleaned daily and unfortunately they were not... The breakfast could have been greatly improved with something as simple as boiled eggs... Which would be very cheap and easy to provide.

    Superb

    Everyone was very nice! I had an emergency and I had to leave before my trip was over(it was very sad) but the hostel didn't charge me for the other days I was schedule to stay in, Justin was the very nice young man who helped me checked out and even order a taxi to take me to the airport. p.s. the location of the hostel is in a very nice and lovely area, I will go back and stay at the hostel and this time see CHICAGO! :)

    Great location, nice/updated/modern facilities, free breakfast, friendly staff

    Parking was a problem. We ended up parking in a lot by a grocery store where we were told it would be $18 to park for 24 hours by the man running the parking lot. We ended up getting charged an extra $10 when we left the lot the next day

    Great value, wonderful staff, great location, hotel was great!!

    Superb

    The rooms were very clean and cool. Roomates were considerate and quiet. Ver nice place, situtated near the beach and the zoo.

    Staff needs some training or need to at least learn to "welcome" a guest.

    Fabulous

    Very good general facilities, friendly and helpful personel. Welcome BBQ, terrace, good neighborhood, daily organised activities.

    No possibility for late breakfast during the weekend. You had to buy a lock for the room lockers, instead of just lending one in return for an ID or caution.

    Excellent location (very nice neighbourhood), great and very helpful staff

    It's an old building with respective facilities. But the great work is being done to keep it clean and well maintained. Anyway it was a pleasant stay.

    Excellent equipped kitchen. Lockers in bedrooms. Breakfast. Very nice common rooms: garden, lounge. Place to store bicycles.

    Dorms with 12 beds. Nightly sleep depends very much on how considerate and mature your room mates are. I prefer hostels with rooms with at most 6 beds.

    Good

    I like the public area, it is nice and cozy.

    the room in the basement is hard to get fresh air. some people wouldn't mind it, and some would. please make a note for this on the information when we are booking. thank you.

    Superb

    The location is perfect. The neighborhood is really great and so convenient for going downtown or to the cool neighborhoods that are northern. Proximity to Lincoln center is exclellent for running or going to swim at the lake. The hotel is clean and friendly, I would definetely come back if coming to Chicago with a short budget.

    The noise of the beds makes difficult to sleep if the other roommates arrived later. The breakfast could be served with whole service, not "reduced" service the last half hour (no milk, no fruits, etc.) I agree is good to have it for a short time, just until 9:30, but it might be the same service and offer from start to end.

    Superb

    Very cost effective choice in Chicago. Located in a nice neighborhood in Chicago which is only 10 minutes metro away from Chicago downtown. Hotel assistant manager Jason is very nice and willing to help.

    The blanket is not warm enough when the whether is getting colder.

    Superb

    Good location - close to the train to Loop and safe neighborhood. It was clean and good looking, probably renovated just lately. Cool staff - accommodated us 3 hours before check-in time and you can keep your baggage there after check-out if you need.

    Bathrooms are not in best, but still good enough and WiFi in our room was too weak to use, so we had to go to lobby.

    Everything was great, would recommend it and would stay again! Great staff, good breakfast, good rooms with locker each and fresh towel each day, free wi-fi, hostel activities like pub crawl/blues and free dinner on saturday night.

    Lots of large groups and too many private rooms.
