Went for a weekend in Chicago to see the Coldplay concert. Stayed two nights in a private room. We chose this hostel because it was cheaper by ~$50-$100 to stay TWO nights here than ONE night in a hotel. Nothing extraordinary, but you get what you pay for. Room is simple with a nice, comfortable queen bed and three dressers.... More

I was there while at a conference for a week. The place has free generous buffet breakfast. the location is not too bad, close to public transports and some supermarkets. The place looks a bit strange but get use to it after a couple of nights. the wifi is not great, reachable in some places only. I have stayed in... More

We stayed here 4 nights in a privat room with shared bathroom. The room was very small, we could barely fit our two normal size suitcases in there. The bathroom for girls was one big room with two showers and two toilet booths. The locks on the booths didn't work, and it was a bit weird that everybody could walk... More

I stated here one night and probably would not stay here again unless I had no other choice. Well I would stay here over IHSP but thats about it. The room and the bathrooms were not bad and the restaurant next door was very good (although pricey even after the 10% discount) but the rest of the hostel and the... More

I was at first quite happy with my choice of staying at the Parthenon Hostel, as it was both less expensive, and in a 'more interesting' neighborhood compared to the IH hostel downtown; also the IH hostel did not have any rooms the particular night I arrived, so I went with what was available. The difference in distance to my... More

A low quality hostel. However clean and comfy beds. Good for the price you pay and the location in greek town. Shared bathrooms, one only for girls. One strange thing is that the boths are so small so you touch the door when yiu sit down

The common areas were under renovation so I was able to get a private room for the price of a dorm. The location is half a mile from the west loop - and buses run frequently. The staff couldn't be nicer. It's quiet but then again in January it was nearly empty midweek.

It's a great place to stay in Chicago. Hostel is situated in a Greek district, very close to Sears Tower - it's almost downtown. Hostel is also very close to Greyhound Bus Station (8min walk) and train which take you directly to O'Hare Airport. Hostel is very clean (rooms and bathrooms), people at the reception desk are very nice and... More

Staying in West Loop

Neighborhood Profile
West Loop
Fulton Market, Randolph Market, Jackson Boulevard and Greek Town make up the West Loop. The neighborhood is best known as the location of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios, but this downtown neighborhood is also an up-and-coming spot for Chicago’s trendsetters. Several sub-neighborhoods within West Loop make this a unique neighborhood to visit. Dotted with factories and warehouses, West Loop is packed with various types of dining and nightlife options. If your timing is right, you can take part in neighborhood events like the West Loop Farmers Market, Craft Beer Fest, or the Randolph Street Market Festival.
