Wicker Park is one of the best neighborhoods in Chicago for nightlife, restaurants, bars and shopping. Downtown is great for sightseeing but Wicker Park is where you will want to spend all of your time. You can literally see the trains on the blue line as they pass by a block away. Wicker Park is the hippest place in Chicago and is only two stops from the city center and five stops from the Willis (Sears) Tower and Union Station.

Make the right choice in your travels and try out IHSP Chicago Hostel, located in the famous Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood directly on the Damen stop on the blue line. We are not one of those hostels that charges you for everything, you will feel at home here.

    Although I checked in late I was checked into room that was not cleaned. Its bedding was crumpled and dirty, there was trash on the floor and the table. I had to wait for the attendant receptionist to tidy the room for me.
