Excellent about 6 mins from the 'L' wide range of accommodation. You can buy attraction tickets at the desk. Excellent staff.

Greetings: Thanks for the great 5 star review! Glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to have you back for many more positive experiences in Chicago. Safe travels! Mat Meadows General Manager


The hostel was good. Localized in a nice district in the North of Chicago, only 7 minutes by feet from the metro station. The staff is cheerfull and helpfull. Events are organized every night. The breakfast is amazing, a lot of choices between baggels, waffels, scramble eggs, fruits, etc... My only regrets are that I have doubts about how often they clean the dorms, because my bathroom was kind of dirty, and there's no free water or coffee.
