The Chicago Parthenon Hostel
Ranked #18 of 58 Specialty Lodging in Chicago
Reviewed September 8, 2009

Clean & Cosy, but I don't think I saw any air-conditioner. The front door is too small to see and a little far from downtown.
Taking a Taxi from H.I. Chicago to AAE cost me around 7 USD.

After looking on the website I think we expected a little more than we got at the Parthenon but that said we don't have anything to complain about. We had a double room (dorms are available too) facing the street which over the weekend was noisy but that's nothing new. The room was basic - bed, towels and chest of drawers. The bathrooms were shared, they looked new and were always clean.
Wi fi was meant to be in all rooms but at the time we were there some building work was going on and we could only get it in the common room - not a drama. The common room had a large flatscreen tv, computer, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities, there was also free breakfast available. The laundry is across the street in the basement of another building, but you can get the key from hotel reception.
The staff were always pleasant, courteous and willing to help.
The hotel is in the middle of the Greek quarter of Chicago which was cool, but it's a good 20 minutes walk into the city centre and about 10 minutes walk to Union Station.

Great little hostel located in the Greek section of Chicago. Very close to the Amtrak Station, walking distance to Sears Tower, bus stop at the end of the block, and surrounded by authentic Greek restaurants (including being right on top of one.) The hostel is new, so everything is very clean. No problem getting hot water in the morning. Very, very friendly and helpful staff.

Free breakfast is served in one of the beautiful dining rooms of their restaurant. Linens are included, as are towels. There is also free internet. They will soon be adding security lockers.

If you are looking for a really social environment, this might not be the place for you - there is only one small lounge area for guests to mingle in. But this is a great place to rest your head while staying in Chicago! I stayed for one night in a dorm and really got my money's worth!
