The hostel is located within 10 minutes walking distance from Damen train station. It took approximately 25 minutes (by train) to get to The Loop. The neighbourhood is quite good, plenty of shops and cafe. The staff are excellent in keeping the place clean and pleasant. Downside: the Wifi is really weak on the third floor (where I stayed) and... More

We stayed a few days in a private room with shared bathroom on the 3rd floor. We were in town for a music festival, so we were not at the hostel for very much of the day except morning and late at night to sleep. The walls were very thin and the hostel appeared to be at max capacity, so... More

This was my first experience staying at any hostel and I enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was pleased that they let me store my things at the hostel before my check in time and after I checked out. It made it easier to explore the city...the only complaints would be more blankets in the rooms, a... More

Very nice hostel. Very gentle and available personell. Cute little rom, but with queen size bed. Shared bathroom (it is an HOSTEL), there is a common room with table games, pool and tv, it is the "breakfast room" in the morning. Centralized air conditioning. The hostel is just two blocks from CTA which leads you in the heart of Chicago... More

If sarcasm is your thing, you'll have a great stay at Urban Holiday Lofts! Most of the staff members (must say, not all of them) were incredibly rude in their answers to our simplest questions (Where can is the train station? What could we do in this area of town?). Big drama about opening the door to the luggage room... More

The rooms were very clean and staff was super friendly and helpful. The hostel is in the most perfect location! Within walking distance of great food and cool shops. Bus stops are nearby too! I will stay here every time I go to Chicago.

We enjoyed our stay overall. Cons - the mattress was v uncomfortable and the curtains were thin so the room was bright and noisy. However, fantastic location with lots going on, easy to get downtown to the more tourist stuff, enjoyed a bagel for breakfast and the staff were very friendly. Would recommend but test the mattress!

Great location, very easy and affordable to get to from the airport. Very clean, I think the bathroom must have been cleaned twice a day, sheets smelled so good, comfy mattresses. Breakfast was great, fresh toasted bagels among other options, walking distance to some great eateries, I am a female solo traveler and I felt safe at the hostel and... More

This was my first hostel I ever stayed at and it was a great! Despite the muddy weather we experienced, they kept the place nice and clean. They had extra linens readily available. Only request I would have would be a few gluten free options and soy milk for the complimentary breakfast, but otherwise, no complaints. Safe neighborhood too with... More

I stayed here for 4 nights during riot fest. It was the first time I had stayed somewhere like this. This place was very clean. Even after a muddy Friday night, they kept it in great shape. All staff was very friendly and so helpful. I would recommend this place to everyone. The decor was very cool and modern. I... More
