My one complaint is that it took a long time for the water for a shower to get warm.

The main strength is the location within walking distance to the Union Station/Amtrak area and the Blue Line CTA train to the airport. It's in the Greek area of town, near many Greek restaurants. The free breakfast at the restaurant seemed like a nice bonus but I found hair in my oatmeal and was too grossed out to eat any more. Showers were filthy, toilet stalls tiny, and walls were very tiny so noisy guests woke me up at 5 a.m. I wish the owner (older male) was kinder in general.

I would like to know upfront that 1 meter behind my room windows is the wall :-(

The toilets in the ladies room are far to small. It was almost impossible to use them since you couldn't sit down or anything. They have to be bigger! The staff in the breakfast are was very unfriendly and was cursing the situation and the people in Greek. It's also very strange, that there was paper on top of the table cloth which created a very bad atmosphere. Besides that we were quite satisfied with the value for money. Would have been great if you could open the window in our private room.

First, we LOVED Greek Town and would stay there again. The hostel was also great but could have been a bit cleaner. Some of that was due to the other "guests" but the floors could have used a sweep and a scrub in our room. The location, as mentioned, was perfect. So much to do on one block. Loved Artopolis and even adopted our own table their during our stay.

Served its purpose but is a bit run down. Location is convenient to get to many places in the city. Helpful front desk staff.
