4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was small and largely taken up by the double bunk bed. It was cold at night and being on the third floor, it was positioned under the busy end of the 4th floor common room which meant I could hear conversations and such at night.None of this really mattered though. I slept well and comfortable. The room was... More

Nice location, about 2 minutes from Damen stop on the CTA blue line. Pleasant rooms, clean, nice staff, quiet rooms. The facility DOES require climbing steps to get to the rooms. Breakfast is barebones ( cold cereals, oatmeal, tea, coffee, bagels) but acceptable.

It is a really nice and perfectly located hostel. The breakfast is great and the staff is nice. The room is very small and very noisy. There were only 2 bathrooms available. It is not true that 2 private rooms share one bathroom. besides that, great!

Very happy with my stay at Urban Lofts. The staff is friendly, rooms are cozy, and price is right. It's a little bit of a subway ride to the Loop (~30min), but I didn't mind. The hostel is about a 5 minute walk to the subway station.

It's very close to funny places to have the best experience in Chicago. You could take the metro or go walking to some bars and restaurants and the attention is awesome. The place is very clean and definitely you feel confortable there.

Safe neighborhood, nice location. Only a few blocks from the L. Awesome staff. Only complaint is the room was too warm in January. The Windows opened making it more comfortable. The other guest were respectful making the trip that much better.

The people who work here are all really nice and helpful, at any time! The room was exactly what we needed--a bunkbed, heat, and tons of outlets for all our charging hype. The common room on the top floor is a great place to chill either within your own group or with others--not too loud, and with a lot of... More

A good choice -- spacious rooms, clean bathrooms and great staff. The only suggestion is to bring earplugs to sleep, as the noise travels very easily from room to room and from floor to floor. Even people talking at a regular level will be heard in the adjacent rooms or floors.

Very nice place. Good value for neat rooms, clean establishment, good beds, close to food and bars. Guy at the front desk was super helpful and friendly. Would recommend for those on a budget who don't really feel like slumming it.

Amazing hostel overall! Friendly staff, great use of space, & VERY clean. I loved that it's super close to public transportation. I would love to some back & stay here again. Please have staff check temperatures in rooms just to make sure it's warm enough (in my case a little chilly in my room especially since it was snowing &... More
