The two best things about this hostel are the sizes of the rooms and location. The singles are a good size, private and secure with space to fold away luggage etc. The hostel is located near a metro line stop but is still within walking distance of Union Station, Willis Tower and the lakeshore. Would recommend for solo travellers, a... More

This place was great value for money. Provides you with beds and being in Greek town feels like you're one of the family. I felt very safe staying here. The room we got was down the far end of the venue near the woman's bathrooms so the wifi was a bit shaky and you could hear every time someone went... More

Quiet and clean, I stayed in an 8 bed travelling on my own and you have the opportunity to meet people. Was my first experience in a hostel and would recommend it as its so close to most of the attractions. Breakfast was top draw, cereals, fruit, porridge, toast, eggs etc. Never had to queue for the shower or toilets,... More

Stayed here for a night. Clean room (had slight odor I think mildew), beds were great and comfy. Clean bathrooms and nice common areas. Workers were extremely friendly and very helpful to guests. Would stay here again without a doubt.

We stayed in a private 3-bed room over 4th of July weekend. It was quiet and clean, and definitely the cheapest option we could find near downtown on a busy weekend. Also we were able to find free parking down the street. They also offer $15 valet at the Parthenon restaurant next door. The reception staff was very friendly and... More

Located in the Greek town area of Chicago, near to train station, metro and greyhound station. You can also find Wal-Mart, Whole Foods Market and Mariano's nearby. Many Greek restaurants nearby too. Place is well-maintained and staff is helpful and friendly.

The only problem is there is only 1 bathroom per floor but I never had to wait. The shower area was clean and again I never... More

I am an older traveler. I've never stayed at a Hostel before but decided to try this one out. It's an older Hostel. My room was very clean. I was glad to see the laminate flooring instead of carpet in the room. I asked for and recieved an double near the bathroom. The room was very satisfactory except it would... More

I came there after 11:00 PM from Amtrak. My bunk was ready and clean there. I noticed they have new floor there. They have nice wash room and shower. I enjoyed breakfast in Greek restaurant. Breakfast was good. I would come back there again.

Staying in West Loop

Neighborhood Profile
West Loop
Fulton Market, Randolph Market, Jackson Boulevard and Greek Town make up the West Loop. The neighborhood is best known as the location of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios, but this downtown neighborhood is also an up-and-coming spot for Chicago’s trendsetters. Several sub-neighborhoods within West Loop make this a unique neighborhood to visit. Dotted with factories and warehouses, West Loop is packed with various types of dining and nightlife options. If your timing is right, you can take part in neighborhood events like the West Loop Farmers Market, Craft Beer Fest, or the Randolph Street Market Festival.
