    I really liked staying at FOUND! I booked a private queen bed room for three nights and everything about the stay was great, and the price was low. I got a free cold beer at check in which was pretty awesome, and my room was unexpectedly large and very clean. I loved the fact that the room had a private bathroom and a desk. I would absolutely stay again and would recommend my friends stay there as well. The only problem I had was noisy neighbors late at night, and the walls were a bit thin.

    Excellent hostel with hotel-level facilities. The bathrooms, rooms, and common areas were always clean. The staff wasn’t that helpful and sometimes there they’re nowhere to be found. Other than that, Great with place in an unbeatable location, near lots of cool restaurants and bars.

    Mixed feelings on this place. Facilities clean enough, manager was quite helpful but I did have some items disappear from storage while there and they never called me back or followed up at all, so out a go pro and some skydive equipment. Neighborhood decent but little sketch at night, as are all Chicago spots though. Kitchen small and longterm renters /locals were there so that created a weird vibe. I left a night early but feel like might be worth a second visit post pandemic.

    Very Good

    I had a really bad experience! I booked 7 days and paid for it on my check in, but four days later they were telling me that I needed to check out. I didn’t understand because I had 3 days more, until I found out it was under another person name and I actually already “checked out” 2 days prior. The receptionist kept saying it was a s**m even tho I showed him I booked 7 days through website and that’s what was saying on the app, and I paid for 7 days. Manager wasn’t there…

    Not happy with the front staff of this place, specially the manager in turn. They had problems with their system and couldn’t charge the deposit of my card, they were not helpful at all, very rude and condescending. They sent me to get a NEW Visa card, as they didn’t want to offer any other option which is unreasonable when you receive international travellers!. I haven’t seen that deposit back either!… will NOT recommend this place, that situation honestly ruined the whole thing

    The private rooms are not as advertised. They are tiny and both windows (one behind the bunk bed) look across a small lightwell directly into other rooms. There was no desk or chair. When I asked to be moved to a room with natural light, I was told all private twin rooms are located around the same lightwell so the photos shown here are actively deceptive. So many other places one can stay in Chicago -- I recommend the HI south of the loop, where I had a much better stay on my second stop.

    TERRIBLE SERVICE! They make a 45 dollar deposit upon arrival and they won't refound it after the stay even tough we did not break any rule of the hostel.

    I didnt go and stay at the Found Hostel. When calling the staff, it wasnt helpful at all. I was on hold for some guest, which was understandable, but since it was booked under a third party they couldn't help much and hung up. So overall, I ended up not going and found a different place to stay. Thank you.
