Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Best value in Chicago! Located in a very nice neighborhood with good access to Brown and Red lines and busses. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. The hostel is secure, everyone has to be buzzed in and walk past the desk. The rooms all have A/C. The beds are a bit creaky but the place always felt like a home.
