It's what it is. Great location, great staff and fun atmosphere! This hostel has a good mixture of young and older guest population. I would recommend it to anyone considering a visit to Chicago!

Hi, WOW, thank you very much for your terrific review. We strive to provide our guests with the best experience while visiting Chicago and we're glad our hard work reflected during your stay. We look forward to seeing you again. Take care, Jason Schultz General Manager


The only thing that bothered me was the signs around the hostel telling people not to use hostel websites like hostleworld.com because of the "reservation fee" and therefore this hostel charged us a "tax" when we arrived to up the price. This website allowed me to find this Chicago hostel so it shouldn't discourage people to use websites like these.

Greetings, Thank you for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your overall experience. We do not discourage guests from booking on third party sites because it allows guests to discover us just as you did. We inform our guests about booking with us directly because we do not collect any payment until arrival. The tax that is charged is mandatory by the city and is explained in our policies on all sites. I apologize for the confusion this has caused. Cheers, Jason Schultz | GM
