  • I can't say enough good things about this hostel! The location was absolutely fantastic, and the staff were very friendly and informative. The facility was also well-kept and very clean. This hostel had everything you need (including free wifi, breakfast, linens, towels, etc)!

  • A really convenient stay for the Chicago Marathon. The staff and the building itself were really cool. The major drawback was the beds--they were creaky and had a crater in the center of them, and could really afford to be updated. Sheets and towels were included.

  • I was told I was booked in a female only room and woke up to a guy staying in our room too. It would have been fine if they had told me beforehand. Front desk was friendly and efficient. Nice hostel. Fantastic location.

  • If you're just looking to stop into Chicago for some sight-seeing I highly suggest you stay at HI Chicago. The location was great and the dorms were super clean. I'll be staying here again the next time I drop in to Chicago for the weekend.

  • Check in was fast, my room was very clean and comfortable, and check out was even faster. The bed was surprisingly comfy and the room was the perfect temperature. Best possible hostel experience. I'll be back again for sure

  • I had a great experience at this hostel. It was my first time sleeping at hostel and I can't speak to the negative. Everything was perfect even if I stayed in an 8-bed female dorm and don´t know anybody around! Staff is super friendly and always helpful! Rooms are nice and clean. So many choices for breakfast , awesome! I can highly recommend this hostel! Like it!
