Great Hostel. Plenty of room, clean and tidy. Good atmosphere. Well located. If planning to be in donwtown chicago, dont miss this hostel. You´ll never regret.


Excellent staff and Host for the Chicago Marathon. I would definitely come back and stay to explore more of CHi-town


Hostel is located in a very nice area, really close to all touristy stuff and transportation and good food. There is an amazing fresh fruit juice/ smoothie place around the corner (you need the vitamins after all the drinking). Not that much mingling in the common room though. Pleople just care about their phones these days. Very clean and no noisy beds.

HI Chicago was wonderful. It is close enough from Union Station to walk to the Hostel. And, free walking tours were wonderful. The Hostel was safe, clean and in a wonderful location. I would definitely stay there again.

Great localization! Just a few minutes walking from the major Chicago sightseeings. The roons are good, tight and clean. However should be available the option to share with less people. Eight per room is too much! The only complain I have is that the front desk fellow didn't tell me, and aparently anyone else in the room, that the beds were not free to chose. I arrived really late and tired and wasn't fun be awaken by a flash light saying that I should move to another bed! Lack of organization!
