The hostel is really nice in a great location, close to the Blue line and lots of restaurants. The common room was clean and had plenty of space for everyone. Breakfast was great (bagels, cereal, and milk). Bathrooms were clean and perfect and they seemed to have 3-4 kitchens spread out throughout the building My only problem was that I... More

Urban Holiday Lofts was absolutely perfect for us! We wanted a hostel that offered comfort and security without being in the heart of the city and paying crazy prices. So we opted for Urban Holiday Lofts because it was a short walk from the train station and in quiet part of Chicago. The rooms are all clean and basic and... More

Having stayed in many hostels, this is one of the best i've had the pleasure of encountering. Easy walk to the blue L line, tons of restaurants, bars, etc... around. The hostel itself was easy to find and was very welcoming and clean. I stayed in an 8 bed female dorm and was surprised at how nice it was. Had... More

I did not think sharing the bathroom is such a problem until I stay at this place. We were all staying here to attend the same retreat, and that means everybody has to get ready at the same time. That was awful. If this was not for the retreat it would have been fine. Each room does not have individual... More

I stayed at Urban Holidays for a weekend in january, 2014. It takes less than five minutes to walk from Damen station to the hostel, and Damen is on the same line as O'Hare airport. It is also a quick ride to the Loop and close to many bars and restaurants. The hostel is clean and had one of the... More

Really easy journey to the property from O'Hare Airport. Less than 5 mins from Damen station. Staff were not overly friendly but served their purpose. I stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. The bathrooms were kept very clean considering it was shared. The property was well maintain and breakfast was simple but filled the hole. Only about... More

Needed to stay overnight between a train trip to Chicago and a flight out of Chicago from O'Hare the next day. Urban Holiday Lofts turned out to be perfect. Just a few blocks off the Damen Blue Line stop, it's a fun, clean, friendly place near to shops and restaurants. The desk people were very helpful and friendly; our room... More

I had a great time here. It's affordable and clean. There are many young adults that stay here. They hang out in the kitchen/common room til 11pm and the staff does a good job of quieting down the common area exactly at 11. It's a few blocks from "L" station and excellent places to eat ... I loved Blue Bird,... More

Travelling with a friend for the first time and Chicago was our first stop. We got the Blue Line straight from O'Hare Airport and got off at a stop which was less than 5 minutes walk to the hostel. Exhausted and a bit overwhelmed, the staff at Urban Holiday Lofts were incredibly hospitable and welcoming. We were shown around the... More
