Good 7.8 From 904 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not for family vacations
We ended up here for various reasons like price, location etc.. this is not for people who want to enjoy their vacation. But as a matter of fact, the cleanliness is disappointing and the smell across corridors, room is horrible.

Very good 8.0
Decent Place!
I stayed here for one night on a quick trip to Chicago. I was really impressed with the location and the service! Since I was in a shared dorm style room, it wasnt super comfortable but was fine (my bed was right by the AC unit so I was super cold!) The bathroom was really far from the room I stayed in, but for the price, this was a very good hostel. I'd stay here again!

Fair 4.0
Overall, not a great stay.
Staff was very friendly, and common areas were clean enough. Location is great and seemed safe. The parking situation was awful and overpriced. But the thing that bothered me most was that the refrigerators STANK SO BAD they made my plastic bag and soda cans smell bad, too. Really disgusting. I also saw many rats on the patio. Bathrooms were far from my dorm. Fitted sheet wouldn't stay in place. No all-female dorm so I had to put up with male roommates who wore too much cologne. Overall, not a great stay.
Laura, us2 night business trip
Poor 2.0
Total regret
My family stayed here for two days because I by mistake cancelled another hotel. I felt really sorry and bad for my family to stay at this place. It was not clean the blanket seemed really old so it was yellowish, there weren’t shampoo, smelled really bad.
