Excellent option to stay in Chicago, it is clean and the staff is kind and helpful, walking distance from downtown and the Blue line is like three minutes away from the hostel. I stayed in a dorm and it was comfortable and quite pleasant so you get to know other travelers. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a pleasant stay here. Is not in the centre of chicago but a 10-15 minute walk will get you there, so not bad at all. I had a single room, which had a nice comfy single bed, chest of drawers and a desk. Was a bit like staying in someone else's bedroom! Bathrooms were close by and seemed clean... More

This hostel is very close to the Greyhound bus stop and in walking distance to The Loop and most attractions, including the Art Institute. This was great as I didn't need to spend any money on public transport! Overall the hostel is what you pay for, the staff are very friendly, the bathrooms are clean and there is a free... More

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
