“Superb location, good craic and great staff”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of June and the hostel had everything we needed. The staff were so helpful and really keep the hostel in great shape. I was with 6 friends and we were given a room to ourselves and we all agreed that this was the best hostel we stayed in within Chicago. The location couldn't be better, in the heart of Wrigleyville and right by the red line cta. Clean bathrooms, great shower and fully equipped kitchen. Plus free pancakes for breakfast!!

I was staying in this hostel for one night and as soon as I entered the hostel I felt really welcommed and comortable! The Hostel is brand new, the staff is really friendly and it is super easy to get to the city. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean and the breakfast in the morning is good! I would rate it as the best hostel in Chicago, good work!!

Joie, Brendan and Marianne were absolutely fantastic hosts. The hostel is amazing, near to full of fun, friendly staff and travellers. Cool basement with huge sofas and tv, computers, pool table, darts, ping pong and bar. Up stairs has a sundeck and bbq facilities. The location is great, next to the cubs field and bars, short walk to bus and rail links.

Along with 7 friends we booked a whole room at this hostel, having no prior reviews, but it was a risk worth taking. This hostel is within walking distance to the Wrigley-ville area night life, and the Redline CTA train, so moving around is very easy. Rooms and beds were clean, but sleep quality is just what you would expect from sharing a room with other people. The place also has a nice lounge area with a pool table, sofa, TV, computer access and FREE WiFi.

Although the bathrooms were OK for a hostel standard, there are only 2 bathrooms available, so you will probably have to wait in line. Also the hostel will provide parking permits to park on the street, but it is a matter of luck to find a spot. If you don't mind paying for parking, there are several parking lots a few blocks away from the hostel.

Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone who is not picky about sharing a room with other people, it offers excellent price, for an excellent location. I would stay there again

Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. It is located in the heart of Wrigleyville, literally steps away from Wrigley Field and all the notable bars in the area. The staff is awesome, the facility is clean and the pricing is very affordable. We had a great stay.

Location is ideal for the Wriglyville nightlife. The people that manage the hostel are fantastic and very friendly! I had never stayed in a hostel prior to this weekend, but they have definitely set the bar very high. Highly recommend this place to anyone that in the area and needs a place to stay.

After staying in the Wrigley Hostel I would definitely recommend it to people. Its super easy to get to from O’Hare airport. The hostel is located close to the Wrigley stadium and a minutes walk to the red line CTA train which goes directly into the Loop. Even though the hostel is located is such a busy area there is no street noise noticeable from the hostel. There are a number of bars and restaurants in short walking distance where you can get deep dish pizza and listen to some classic Chicago blues.
The hostel has a number of amenities with a pool table and flat screen tv in the common area equipped with the world’s best couch. You can bring in your own beer and the outdoor decking is perfect for barbeques. The bedrooms and the bathrooms are really clean and the beds are unreal comfortable.
The guys running the hostel are extremely helpful (and cute) and try to make you feel at home as much as possible. They offer free breakfast too which is always a bonus.
The Hostel is a great place for solo travelers and for groups. They make it easy to meet new people as they organised a trip down to the local blues club when I was there so if your are travelling alone it doesn't feel like it once you stay here.

Don’t even look else where, everything you need is here.

Room Tip: any room is a good room here
