Stayed for 9 days - initially for a conference and then for a few extra days. I booked a private room with no bathroom as my fiance was coming to stay for the second half of the week, and had never stayed in a hostel before. The staff were friendly, breakfast was fine (and appreciated for the price), the double bed was comfy, although the pillows were reaaaaally flat and there was only one each! There were a good number of shower rooms, toilets, and useful laundry facilities. There were additional towels and bedsheets for those staying for long periods of time. Great location too! We felt safe inside the hostel, and on the streets.
I was in their accommodation down the street (about 0.75 miles) which was not perfect as no kitchen facilities, and needed to go up the street to use them. We were in Chicago during the biggest rainstorms in a few years so this was a bigggg pain for us!!! Nonetheless, for the price we paid, we received excellent value, so I think it would be very unfair to criticise in that respect.
