    Worst service I ever had

    They charged me an entire week I didn't stay.

    Rather sleep on a bench at the bus station.

    Shared room smelled strongly of weed. Asked to be changed and second shared room was about the same, maybe a little less but still bad for a bad experience. It was super late and I just needed to try to sleep otherwise I would have left. Asked for a partial refund the next morning and the desk clerk could have cared less. Didn't feel like there was any compassion for my experience and I let them know it. Worse hostel experience I've ever had and I stayed at many shared room situations in the US and Europe.

    A first time experience staying in a hostel st

    This is my first hostel experience and I‘Ve really enjoyed it. What began as a single night’s stay I’ve e tended by another week. I really like the friendliness, camaraderie, & sense of community.

    It was good except for the loud snoring of one. I would have wanted to change rooms. I was in upper bunker, and half dressed, felt I would more noise coming climbing down to report. Texting the felt desk for our bed would have been effective. Advise on that type of communication fort that and other type of incidents. I’ll do so next time.

    Sports tourism

    Good place to stay while participating in job interviews. Just by Wrigleyfield, making it convenient to attend games (spring training now). I recommend to any sports fans out there needing an expensive place to stay at Chicago.

    Super comfy and a great value. Staff is crazy nice

    A super nice and friendly place. And an amazing value. Stayed in a shared room and the fellow guests were really cool. A bunch from England. I recommend this place.

    First time in a hostel

    I was a bit nervous staying as a solo female in a mixed hostel however everyone in my room that I met seemed very nice and the whole thing went smoothly. I was going to a show at Metro which was right down the street , I walked and the neighborhood was very good. Fridge was a little dirty but that's the only complaint I have. Absolutely will stay again if I'm in the area!
