The title of this review is completely merited. Urban Holiday is the best place to stay if you're on a budget in the city. You get your money's worth and so much more. The place is really clean, comfortable, and everyone there is really helpful and social. Bathrooms are the cleanest I've seen and there are plenty of them to... More

In a cool area (Wicker Park) with easy access to downtown via the 'L', really clean and nice bathrooms, clean rooms, bit of noise bleeding from floors above but generally not a loud hostel anyway so not too much of a problem, helpful staff, great recommendations in the lobby. Private room did not have a mirror but there were a... More

I stayed here for two nights when a friend came into town and it was easier than going back to the suburbs every night. The location is awesome and the price was great. The only thing I had issue with was that the wifi was super spotty and I couldn't get a connection at all in my room, so I... More

Close to train, clean bathroom and linens. The staff are helpful and friendly. Wifi also works well. Other customers are also very friendly and courteous. Although the bathroom is a bit overloaded in the morning, everyone did their best to shorten their usage time. Really worth the money!

Would definitely come back here, very clean and in a very cool and different neighbourhood, with lots of cheap bars and food places, also the staff was extremely helpful. Also met really awesome people, a great common area and good breakfast. The best hostel in Chicago. Also very close to the damen stop on the blue line.

I spent two nights in a dorm in this very nice and friendly hostel! Lokated in a very nice, hip and cool neighborhood, you will always find a nice bar in the evening. A lot of designer, vintage and just very cool shops can also be found in this area! The next subway-stop is just around the corner. No changes... More

The location is great, it was clean and the staff very friendly. The walls are quite thin so you can hear everything but there was an 11pm no noise policy which worked well. The air conditioning in our room was on which made it quite cold during the night. The breakfast was great and just what you need.
