    A nice hostel at a good price. Enjoyed my stay, slept well in the dorm room. Met some nice people in the common area. Nice section of town, many eateries outside the door and a Walgreens down the street. Blue line train a short walk away. If your looking for a budget option, this is your place in Chicago

    The highlight of staying here was 100% the staff, the location, and the value. I booked pretty last minute for a concert and the staff were super accommodating about allowing me to drop my bags off early and checking me in late at night. Overall they were just really friendly and caring. Location is convenient – the bus I needed was just a few minutes away. The accommodations are pretty basic and exactly what you'd expect for the price. Amazing value when you just need to crash after a concert!

    Nice place, close to transport hubs- bus, train, El trains. Blue line. Cleanliness could be improved but considering the times not a major issue. This is a good budget option.

    Overall not a bad spot to rest your head. The location was good, staff friendly, and clean enough. My main complaint: the beds in our double room were SO SOFT. Double locks on our private room, and location were the highlights.

    Bathrooms were dirty, wifi didnt work anywhere, nothing else is included except for a bed to sleep on. Weird people staying there. Also was charged extra $5 on arrival. For this price, better off finding a hotel.

    This is only a place to go when you absolutely can't find another place. Its more like a flophouse, many long time Chicago residents here. Kitchen is super tiny, dirty and fridge looks like almost never cleaned. The rooms are either too hot or too cold and its all a walkup so 3rd floor a hike. Its fine if you were paying 15$ but they are charging the same rate as other hostels in the city with zero modernity or services. Wifi pretty much non existent and I would not my belongings out. Staff nice

    I booked a 3pers. private room. Apparently the host doesn’t even have 3ppr available at all!! We were offered a 2ppr instead with the comment that this would be perfect since two of us are married and could cuddle. We didn’t get offered a discount, I had to ask for it and discuss about it for quite a while. At the end I was so annoyed by the host being so in cooperation and unprofessional that I took the discount of 8.2% which is a joke! Pictures of the rooms are a lie! The rating system too!
