Took the private room, which was just a room with two beds, nothing more. The bathroom was shared anyway. It was clean however and the staff was very nice and helpful. Good breakfast that was included! No elevator which was a minus. Location is great, close to both downtown and the harbour as well as "subway" station. Good enough to... More

The Parthenon hostel in Chicago is located in Greek town, ideally located 2 blocks north of Halstead station and three blacks from Union station. This hostel is ideal for a night, basic bye clean, wifi is good and it's FREE

My wife and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Parthenon. The reception staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and the room was adequate and the wi-fi worked well. The breakfast was good although the guy in charge of the breakfast was a bit grumpy. The location is also good. The train from the airport drops you off... More

I stayed here in late December with my mum, brother, sister and two friends in a 6-person private room. Everything was basic but great - clean, big bathroom, free breakfast and all in the great location of Greek town, surrounded by great restaurants and just a few blocks from the centre of town. The staff were fantastic, especially in assisting... More

Make sure you read up on this place as it can be misleading. on my arrival I was given a long list of things not to do and given the room key. A few facts, you cannot eat in your room, i know this is a hostel, but that is very draconian. the room i had was very basic, i... More

I stayed here for a week in a private room with my boyfriend and it was ok. I hardly ever saw anyone else though, except for at breakfast. I dont think I would have been too happy if I was staying in a dorm on my own, just because there didnt seem to be any social activities or people to... More

A great place if you are planning to run the Chocago Marathon. Many guest that weeken dare runners, the race runs in front of hte Hostel, so your team can cheer without going to far. The Hostel serves a decent breakfast. Only bad thing is hte very angry guy (may be the owner) keeping watch of the breakfast.

Be very careful when booking here. You cannot see what you are getting over the internet. The rooms are very shabby. If they would go to a few garage sales, they could update this place. The kitchen is ridiculous ...it's a joke. The tv did not work so that wasn't going to entertain me. When you reserve over the internet,... More

You have no cooking facilities - just a fridge, a microwave and a water boiler (no dishes, no water in the kitchen). I hade to change rooms,... More

The lady at the reception named Cookie was helpful. She actually managed to reserve me a bed for 5 days when it was available only for 2 days.
