Clean, convenient, good food

Posted Mar 3, 2017
Space - stayed in a private room, with a bunk bed - a double on the bottom, a twin on the top. One small table, a clock, and one shelf. Everything is clean, the common showers have clean floormats, locks on all doors, and hairdryers. You can ask for clean towels at the front desk. Second floor has a common area with 2 pool tables, 1 ping pong table, couches, and a TV. Food - continental breakfast, not bad - it's the same every day, but has enough variety to last you a week without it getting frustrating. Hot water and (not fresh) coffee is available throughout the day. A few vending machines with everything from snacks to microwaveable meals. Also, the hostel works with a Chicago youth organization, which sometimes cook dinner for whoever wants to come (who stays at the hostel), share the meal with them, get to know each other, and listen to some presentations they do about their native culture and about the city of Chicago. So a cool way to get free dinner and give back to the community at the same time. Entertainment - on the second floor you can find a volunteer who can help you find things to do/places to go. Almost every night there is something going on - either the school thing previously mentioned, or comedy night, etc, organized by the hostel. During the day they offer walking tours and other perks. Location - we loved it. Very easy to get to from the airport. Very close to the L. Easy to get to everything. Bring your own lock to store your things on the last day!

Thanks for all the information to our future guests. It is much appreciated. We try to have things available to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Sorry about the not so fresh coffee, the kitchen is not staff all day and therefore, constantly making coffee becomes challenging. I will work with staff on how to make this better. Thanks again and safe travels.

Budget hostel with luxury

Posted Jan 31, 2017
I was really amazed at the amenities that this hostel had for the price that I paid.. I stayed in a 8bed female dorm with ensuite bathroom and preassigned lockers. If you have small valuables they can be held at the front desk and also after you check out your luggage can be held till 9pm for free! When you're over, you are greeted by friendly staff. You get your fresh linens placed on the bed for you. In the mornings there's breakfast at the cafeteria, the main kitchen (on the second floor) is also open 24hours if you want to make anything with a fridge. If you are looking to your Chicago, there's an information desk with people ready to give tours. I also used the CTA which has various stops around the hostel if you are looking for a cheap way to travel. There are also a lot of restaurants within walking distance and not to far if you use the public transport. If you are a budget conscious traveller looking to meet people and have a lavish stay. I recommend this hostel.

Good location close to greyhound bus terminal.

Posted Jan 20, 2017
Pros: Cheap and easy.
Location: Close to subway station 5minutes by foot. Close to Greyhound bus terminal by cab.
This is second time to stay in this hotel. I chose it because it was good last time. This time I could`t sleep because a guest in our room was coughing all night.Not only the noise but also I was afraid to catch a cold from her. I know it was`t hotel`s fault, but I could`t enjoy the stay.
