Nice, especially walking tour

Posted Sep 25, 2016
This was my first visit to Chicago. The hotel was really nice. First, when a front concergie welcomed me, I felt relieved. Because I had doubted a little before check-in. The room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was beyond my expectation. I enjoyed several kinds of bread and fruits. I also took part in walking tour. Nancy(?)'s talk was easy to understand even for a non-native English speaker. Thanks for giving me a good experience. I like Chicago very much.

Beds were incredibly comfortable!!

Posted Sep 24, 2016
Usually hostel beds are the worse...not at HI Chi-town. Beds were the most comfy ever!! I had a bottom bunk and it was amazing. Light and outlet right in your bunk, chair to put stuff on, locker to lock up.

Super Lage - alles gut zu Fuß erreichbar!

Posted Sep 23, 2016
Insgesamt war der Aufenthalt super - leider war die Klimaanlage in unserem Zimmer sehr laut, das auch die ganze Nacht! Aber nachdem man den ganzen Tag gelaufen ist schläft man trotzfem ganz gut :)

どこに行くにもアクセスが良いホステルです。

Posted Sep 11, 2016
駅にも近くループもすぐそこ。どこに行くにも最高です。ルームメイトによって宿泊環境が変わりますが、シャワーもトイレも清潔で良いですよ。こんな街のど真ん中でこの価格は素晴らしいです。

Pretty cool experience though

Posted Aug 17, 2016
So this is actually my first stay j a hostel, staff here are nice and the metro is like a block away. Located in downtown so it's very convenient so get something to eat. However, the bed is kinda old, so everytime someone tries to turn them self on bed, the sound is petty loud. The breakfast is okay but not as good as I thought. Only got toast, bagel, muffin, and cereal to choose from. But, this stay is still a very cool experience to me.

Friendly Hostel, Convenient Location

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Pros: Friendly, Comfortable.
Cons: Getting on to the top bunk... I didn't trust the bed frame while climbing up; breakfast was all carbs- wish there was eggs, or something to supplement
Location: Lakefront Trail, Millennial Park, Eating, Shopping are all in short walking distance.
We showed up early hoping they could hold our luggage. They could. Recommended a couple different lunch stops, and offered their free guided walking tour while we waited for our check in time. The staff were so friendly. There was also a happy hour that evening; lively ping pong/table tennis match, and a large TV to watch the Women's Olympic football (soccer) match. So much better than staying at a hotel! Lots of opportunity to meet other people. Conveniently a few blocks away from the L/subway, with easy access to the airport. I wish my stay was longer. I would definitely return here before going anywhere else. The bad? Shower was a little cold at first (my roommate couldn't figure out how to make it warm even when I explained how...), getting on the second bunk you have to climb up the bed frame, which I didn't 100% trust, breakfast was convenient, but I wish it had at least 1 protein option aside from peanut butter. Not enough to deter me from the positives. Mostly young people (18-early 30s) staying here, although there were some older adults.

Good for budget traveller

Posted Aug 5, 2016
Pros: Good location and facilities
The hostel is in the Loop so it is very convenient for transportation. The room is clean and the bed is comfort. It provides adequate facilities. The staff are nice and adequate food offering for breakfast. I booked the hostel last minute since my flight was cancelled. For its price I think it is very good.
