Would most definitely stay again! Walking distance to the train and no curfew! Right downtown!


Room was huge (8 bed premium dorm, 2 suites with 4 beds in each and shared bathroom), staff were very accommodating, breakfast was great and you can't beat the location in the loop and a brief walk to Michigan Ave. They also don't charge to hold your luggage once you check out so provided you have your own padlock you're good to go. Plenty of activities to keep you occupied and there's also walking tours you can do on your own. Def stay here when in Chicago!


Staff was extremely helpful in helping me circumnavigate the city.

This was a good hostel but is definitely pricey compared to hostels around the world. It was in a great location though and very safe. They could use more bathrooms/showers. There is a big common area with TVs and pool tables but it's not the usual hostel atmosphere with young adults because alcohol is not allowed. All in all I would stay here again over the overpriced hotels downtown.
