Good location, close to the metro line, short ride to the Chicago downtown. Good value for the cost. Comfortable stay in an interesting neighbourhood, Wicker Park. Lots of good coffee shops, restaurants, and bars.

Very good location. Within walking distance of train and many stores and restaurants. If you're traveling by yourself it's a great value. Our family of five reserved a five-person room; full-size bed with two bunks and they gave it to someone else before we got there at 3:30.

I visited in the winter, and my room was EXTREMELY hot - around 86 degrees. They had turned the heat up becuase other guests were cold. This means that the first night, probably people with rooms with windows were freezing, and then the other night the people without windows were sweating away. That is really bad management. Furthermore, when I...

Stayed in a privat room with shared bathrooms with my gf. Room was clean, so was the hallways and bathrooms. The building and the hostel it's a bit worn but not more than usual for a hostel if you're used to them, so I won't hold that against them. Helpful staff and they have a kitchen/play area at the top...

Not like your average hostel - when we arrived, there were couples, families and older visitors staying there, always a good sign! My friend and I shared a private room with a bunk bed. It was cosy but the common room was an excellent place to chill out. The staff really know their stuff and couldn't have been more helpful...

Very good and affordable hostel for solo travellers, with a grocery store downstair, Walgreen and metro entrance right around the corner. Next to a long recreational biking/running track. I met some great friends in the common room too. Free parking spots by the curb of the street, just be careful and don't park in the tow zones or block any...

The Urban Holiday Loft offers clean rooms and bathrooms, good breakfast, and nice staff. It is located just 5 minutes away from the next CTA station so it's very convenient if you want to head to downtown Chicago :) All in all my group had a great time staying there.

This place completely surprised me with how great it was! My friend and I took a spontaneous trip to Chicago with no plans to stay anywhere and was lucky enough to stumble upon this place. It was easily one of the best place I have ever stayed. I was so surprised how clean and modern the lofts were. I highly...

We drove into Chicago and loved that it had free parking on the street and was close to a CTA stop. There was a nice highline park very close and seemed like a cool neighborhood, & I loved the industrial design of the hostel. The common room is especially cool, and has a view of downtown. We also appreciated the...

Traveling with 6 kids ages 4-15. This was perfect - we booked the 8 bunk room and kids loved the adventure. We were right across from the shared bath and down the hall from the common room. Great neighborhood- we got great deli food from the cute grocery on ground floor. Stans donuts close by too. Not sure if hostel...
