Stayed 3 nights in a twin private. Good location near lots of bars and food. Just a few blocks form the Train. Clean bathrooms and nice kitchen with plenty of room for your stuff. Staff very helpful. The only CONS are - The room was short on outlets and had very thin walls and you could hear everyones doors slamming all night. Would highly receommend. This will be where I stay whenever I visit Chicago.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at, very clean, great atmosphere and the staff (specifically Melanie) was simply amazing.
