A Fun, Hip Place at a Reasonable Price
My stay was Fri-Sun. The location has you close to great tourist areas downtown. The service staff was very helpful. The bar was definitely active but not rowdy and geared to a younger crowd. I stayed on the 4th floor and it was quiet and comfortable. I slept great! Definitely exceeded my expectations for the price.

Great place
We loved the Freehand. Such a great atmosphere, the room was cozy and very clean. Only thing that would have made it better would be the view but that is a minor detail.

Deal for the price. Roomies may be the only minus.
The front desk people were stellar. Super helpful in person and over the phone. I got in late to Midway and they let me check in over the phone because I was at risk of checking in past the 3:00 a.m. cut off. I've stayed here several times, but it's been a couple of years. I was disappointed that the coffee shop downstairs was closed. Slowest elevator in the area. Take the stairs! Up to about the 4th floor you won't be disappointed because of the wall art. Room smelled like mildew. I can't tell if there were toiletries left by the hostel or not, because of the other strangers in the room having their stuff in the bathroom. Pretty sure the rink smell of the room was because of my transient roommates, who didn't stick to the assigned bedding, which was annoying, because climbing into one of those top bunks in the dark late at night was kind of a struggle. but those complaints are really more about my roommates and the front desk person was very clear that if there was any problem with my room when I got upstairs that she would change me. I was just too tired to deal with it.

Visited Chicago for Christmas and loved this place! Super affordable and awesome location. The Broken Shaker bar/lounge area was one of the coolest spots.
