The hostel is great and is in an ideal spot for both downtown and O'Hara airport. The staff were really friendly and helped us out a lot when we first arrived with tips of where to go in the city. The room was great and the facilities were well equipped for a short break.

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2016

I could not fault this place, it honestly is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Great location, staff, breakfast, beds, rooms and staff. Will 100% be staying again. Also, it's a 5 minute walk from the local CTA stop 'Damen', and a 6 minute walk from 'Aldi'.. so you can buy food and drink on the cheap. Fantastic.... More

Loved loved the area! The breakfast is good, beds were good. Most of the staff were awesome. One thing, didn't realise there were stairs going up to every floor and we had heavy suitcases. But it was wonderful that we could leave the suitcases there even after we checked out for the day.

The hostel has some good and bad points, the best being the neighbourhood it's in, which is lovely and has plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, it's really close to the blue line station, and clearly a lot of effort has been put in to making the place look nice. We had a private room so no ideas on the... More

When I was looking for a hostel in Chicago, it was important for me to find a place not far from downtown. That is why I chose Urban holiday lofts. I would recomend to everyone because I like almost everything in it (including price).

Nice stuff. Cool people. The breakfast is not as big as I expected but it does what it has to. Maybe it could be a problem to somebody to sleep in there cause you here your room neighbors talking. Also the floor over your room is quite noisy.

As advertised, the facility is clean and ideally located for exploring Chicago via the CTA (mass transit system of trains, subways, and buses) and walking. Please bear in mind that this is a HOSTEL not a hotel or a motel - it is a communal atmosphere. (Think summer camp, bunkbeds, well-behaved college dorm.) Knowing this, the only surprise I had...
