This tourism to Chicago was my first time. Also I have never stayed a hostel, so I had worried about cleanliness and safety before I arrived at the hostel. I visited there with my friend. The atmosphere of the hostel was nice. Staffs were very friendly and helped us. It's normal that some people stay in the same room. However,... More

Always been quite skeptical when it comes to hostel, seeing that this hostel had quite a good review I decided to have my 1st hostel stay. I checked into the hostel on Boxing Day, and was pleasantly surprise about the overall vibrant and inviting ambient. My room was a single corner room which was near to the stairways to the... More

Stayed here two nights with my family, having a weekend getaway. In the past I had paid ~500USD for 2 night in other Chicago hotels. This time I wanted to try something else. I never stayed in a hostel before, so I arrived with no expectation and the place has exceeded that nothing by far. Wonderful place. Clean, safe, close... More

We stayed at a 12 person dorm which was ok. The bathrooms with toilets and showers downstairs aren't as nice as the one upstairs so you can better use the one upstairs. Downstairs the showers only has a curtain with no place to hang your towel and clothes, upstairs is like a cabin with a dry place for your stuff.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights this month. The place is very good. The front desk staff is very helpful. The person pointed out a free parking spot for the nights. This was useful in what otherwise is a parking rip off across Chicago parking slots. The breakfast is healthy. Internet works fine. The room itself is rather small but it... More

Absolutely amazing! Very friendly staff and also the atmosphere is incredible. Very clean and organised and you have a lot of options to do in the hostel itself as well as the activities planned at night. The rooms are very nice and good access to wifi.
