Great location, nice staff, and overall very happy!
Great location and a very friendly and helpful crew! We had a great stay. Join in on their evening activities and meet new people! Rent the city bikes and ride them all over town. A great way to see chicago and there are bike stations very close to the hostel.

Friendly & Helpful staff, an awesome hostel!
In a great location (Lincoln Park is a lovely area, very safe with great bars and restaurants). Only a couple of blocks away from the train and very competitively priced. One of the best hostels I have stayed in! The staff were very friendly and helpful, daily activities organised too.

Friendly/helpful staff, clean amenities, safe area
My friend and i really enjoyed our stay here. Only a short walk from the nearest train station and really cute, quiet neighborhood. Everything was super clean and the staff was super helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Horrible Bathrooms
The rooms, common areas and breakfast were pretty good, and the location and service were great, but the bathrooms ruined it for me. At the end of a very long and public hall, the showers were just stalls with curtains, and every time I went there (morning, noon and night), were dirty. Too bad, because otherwise it's a great place.

The Best in Chicago
This place is sensational -- completely redesigned, redecorated in minimalist decor, has a spectacular stainless steel kitchen, a cosy tv room and large common area complete with pool table and a grand piano and some truly great staff who really know their stuff about Chicago and are extremely helpful and fun. Oh yes, it's also in a brilliant location.

Great place, I would stay here again
This hostel is in a beautiful building, ultra modern interior with a vintage exterior, in a beautiful neighborhood, Lincoln Park. Everything was clean, the staff were awesome and recommended their favorite spots, went out of their way to make sure you knew where the cool stuff was. One complaint would be that this isn't much of a party hostel, which is probably a plus for some people, but they do organize pub crawls, so that is probably the way to go if you are looking to meet people. But anyways, great place, I would definitely stay here again.

Truly one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in
Clearly this place has changed a lot since 2006. This hostel is run the way they all should be run -- with a great mixture of professionalism, friendliness, and fun. The dorm was in itself pretty standard I guess, but I appreciated only having to share a bathroom with a few others, not the mass bathroom experience. Air conditioning made a few very hot Chicago nights bearable. Bed was comfy, and you get a fresh towel every day -- a luxury for the hosteling experience. The common spaces were well-serviced (when I was there a maintenance guy was taking down the light fittings and cleaning them!), clean and homey. A good combo of tables and chairs and sofa-style seating. WiFi that is free and works well. Outdoor patio/hang-out space with a BBQ. TV in a separate room -- THANK YOU for that. Staff were super: relaxed and friendly but professional. Nice part of town with plenty going on, and everything you need just 'round the corner. I absolutely could not find fault with this hostel; I picked it almost at random from the others in Chicago, and was so glad I did. I would recommend it to everyone, unreservedly.
