My 2nd time stay at this hostel. The location is excellent which it is near the CTA station (go to O'hare quickly) and there are many bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is clean, comfortable and has lots of power outlets. Still the breakfast options ...

Everything was great. Only small issue is you can hear people walking in the halls and in the bathrooms pretty clearly, but would still stay again! No one was loud past quiet hours. :)
