This hostel was in a good location, just 2 minutes walk from a metro station, 10 minutes walk from the Greyhound Station, and close to lots of restaurants and the Willis tower. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and kitchen facilities were good. This is a good family hostel I would say and, bunk-beds aside, felt more like a B&B.... More

I've been here 2 years ago in the middle of July. Everything was ok, the room was rather clean, next to bathroom, WI-FI connecion is ok. Our crew was glad about the hostel location. It's so close to Willis Tower and another nicest place of wonderful Chicago. By the way Parthenon locates next to one of Grayhound station. I reccomend... More

While this wasn't the best hostel I've ever stayed at, it was pretty damn good. We stayed in a private room... the bed was huge and comfortable, there was a good amount of bedding, the pillows were fantastic, the room was super clean and the heating worked. There was a funky kind of smell when we arrived but we just... More

Great location, silent at night, good private rooms... it was a little expensive for a hostel and the personnel was confusing and unclear when it came to charging you other than that it was very good!!!! It had free breakfast and free wifi so that was sweet , the common rooms are not that good

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.
