This place was great. Perfect location next to the blue line and good night life. They'll hold your bags for you. It was clean and safe. Staff were awesome and the breakfast was decent. A really great value.

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

The place is conveniently located near a blue line metro station. This gives direct connections to Chicago Loop and O'hare airport! Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. They also stored our luggage for free for a few hours after check-out. Neighbourhood is good with many places to eat and hang out.

This is exactly the type of hostel I was looking for: cheap but clean, convenient, and comfortable. I had no problems with any aspect of my booking or stay and finding it was easy too. Didn't sleep great cause my roommates were on a very different schedule than I but that's to be expected in a six bed dorm...

My friends and I stayed at the UHL for two nights as we were exploring Chicago for the first time. We had a blast! The location was perfect. We staying in the Wicker Park location close to N. Milwaukee, which has a huge neighborhood full of great shops, bars, and restaurants and all within walking distance! I drove from CA... More

Placed us right next to the check in dream which wasn't ideal. The rooms were overly air conditioned so very chilL. Not very social either. Pretty good quiet hours policy. Common room closes at 11 so can't meet anyone. Good location in wicker park

The location and atmosphere can't be beat. The hostel style was fine. When traveling in a group of 5 you are sharing a bathroom anyway and we had no trouble getting showers, etc. It was fun and the staff was amazing!

As far as a hostel goes it offers very little. Not very sociable. The beds are so cheap and top bunk is so noisy when someone comes in. The curtains are pretty much non existent. 5am and the sun is shining through. Saying that if your after something quiet and a decent location then it's ok

It was fairly loud at night when we were trying to sleep from people coming in from being out at the bars and the beds were not very comfortable so we didn't sleep very well. However, the staff was very friendly and we couldn't have asked for a better location. Overall, I would definitely stay there again for the price... More

This place is the best. The little glow in the dark stars in my room were a nice touch. If you are staying in Chicago, this place is a gem. Good location, great staff members, clean, and affordable. I'd happily stay here again.
