Second stay here in 5 years. Economical private hostel room, quite adequate for this type of lodging. Clean and relatively quiet, despite being in Greek Town, only walking distance from The Loop. Convenient to CTA buses and a short walk to the U of Illinois Chicago Blue Line Metro Station. As in most hostels, no food allowed in rooms, but... More

I was so happy to find out about this place: a cheap hostel, close to the greyhound bus station. So I booked it. When I got there I realized it was a great decision- location is perfect, the place itself is wonderful and it was so worth it (remember how much you pay, don't expect luxury). Other than the perfect... More

I stayed on a Saturday night & my private room faced the street. The music in the bars was going until 3am & it was really noisey, so not much sleep. The staff behind the desk were friendly & helpful.

I stayed at the Parthenon for 2 nights July 2014. I chose to stay there because I took the Megabus to Chicago and wanted to stay near Union Station (where the bus drops you off) and I wanted to walk and not have to pay for other transportation. If you are taking a bus to Chicago and need a cheap... More

I'm fairly local. I took the Amtrak for a short solo trip to Chicago so didn't want to pay $200 for a hotel for just me. I stayed on a Wed on the main floor in a front/street side 6 girl dormer (114). Positives: linens and bathroom were clean. Showers worked and were hot (yay!). Towel rental was convenient and... More

The thought of sharing a room and bathroom with strangers never appealed to me but the thought of having this experience intrigued me. Plus, the price of the stay in the heart of Chicago was GREAT!! Yes, you have to take your bags up the steps to get to your rooms, so travel light. The front desk person was extremely... More
