This place is well run, clean, secure, and friendly. The location is very good in terms access either on foot or by CTA. I would highly recommend this to my friends. I enjoyed the breakfast that was provided every morning.

Super central hostel, very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, and fabulous facilities. I traveled solo and slept in one of the private rooms (small but cozy!) with shared bathroom. Definitely recommended as cheap accommodation in Chicago!

Hi Alfonso V- Thank you for your review. We are always trying to improve our facility, and we appreciate your feedback. All the best, Vincent Sassana AGM

It's in a safe area but the hostel is under staffed. People need to figure their own life and not a great place if you are travelling alone. Food is walking distance and city attractions a short bus ride away
