Great Hostel

Posted Jul 19, 2017
My stay at this hostel was very pleasant. The staff was very kind and helpful. They have happy hour with free alcohol on Fridays and many activities for guests, such as walking tours (free) and jazz/comedy club outings. The rooms are a decent size, and there is a big meeting room area to hang out, eat, play games, and meet new people. I noticed the bed linens had some hairs and dried spots on them, so they could do a better job with cleaning. The hostel is in a great location, within easy walking distance to many tourist attractions and very close to Harrison station on the red line.

Central Chicago, in the loop,

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Pros: Location, staff, complimentary breakfast, Rec room.
Location: Millennium Park, about four/five blocks away, Willis Tower in the nearby area, Private Bank Theatre for Hamilton(if you can gets tickets) close by.
The hotel was centrally located from most attractions, Willis Tower, 103 stories up high, close to the riverwalk with shops, recreational activities(cruises, bike rentals, etc.) about twenty minute ride on the RED line from Downtown to Wrigley field to watch the Cubs play. Millennium Park, great place to see different attractions like the open pavilion(chamber music), Rock Climbing/Roller Skating and Mini-golf at Maggie Dailey Park across the bridge. Bike rentals(Bobby's Bike Rentals) around Lake Front Trail near the beach. Spent the last night of my stay going to see the Broadway Hit, "Hamilton" at Private Bank Theatre on Monroe, great staff/location/ and theatre layout. One of the best, if not the best show I have ever seen. Great experiences in a short time, met a few people, had a great time.

Walk to everything in the Loop.

Posted Jul 5, 2017
Pros: Location
Location: Everything in the Loop. Art Institute only 3 blocks!
This is the third time I stayed here. Chicago is an expensive place to stay in the summer and the HI makes it affordable. I got a private room on the 6th floor and well above the noise of the EL. The breakfast is adequate and the Wi-Fi was up to the task. Nice to have a kitchen to heat up left-overs.

Thank you for your feedback. We look forward to your return. We try to provide a basic breakfast that everyone will enjoy, providing different cuisines from different cultures could become very costly to us and to our guests.

Great Hostel, comfortable, quiet, fairly clean, and friendly staff. Central location. This is a good option if you're traveling to Chicago on a budget.
