  • The actual physical hostel is great. It's really clean and modern. The biggest problem I had was the location. It's a 10 to 15 minute subway ride into downtown and either about a 1 hour subway or 45 minute taxi to the airport. No shuttle buses to the airport operate in the area which really sucks. Also there are no hostel activities which makes it really hard to meet people if you are travelling alone. The staff are really nice and helpful and the breakfast is actually not that bad at all.

  • This place is really clean and new. The nearby neighborhood has many restaurants, coffee shops, flower shop etc. I would recommend it to any travellers with budget concerns. The only downside is that the room is not very sound-proof.

  • The only thing that really got me irritated was the breakfast. Most of times I had to go upstairs over to the reception and ask an employee for bread. They simply don't provide enough bread for all costumers (just put a few in a basket) and wait for a guest to tell them the kitchen is out of bread.

  • I loved staying at Holiday Jones! Super friendly staff, great mix of people staying there, clean facilities, what more can you ask for? Everything is very modern looking and nice, the bathrooms make you feel like you're at home, and the basement kitchen/lounge rocks. I will definitely be staying here again in the future!

  • I stayed here in July with a group of friends. We were in a private room with shared bath. Everyone loved their experience here - great facilities (clean!), friendly staff, and great location. Would definitely stay here if visiting Chicago again.

  • I hadn't stayed in a hostel in a few years, but was thoroughly impressed with Holiday Jones. The location is minutes from the blue line station (Division), and perfectly situated in the Wicker Park area of Chicago. Some of the best boutique stores, coffee shops, and random assortment of places to check out are all within a short walk. The staff were both friendly and helpful, and the facilities were properly set up, clean, and secure. Including things like solid bunk beds bolted to the wall!

  • I stayed twice at the Holiday Jones Chicago in June 2014. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and recommend this hotel. Reception is open 24/7, and staff is super nice and helpful. The hostel location is pretty good, a few steps away from a CTA blue line stop that will get you downtown in 10-15 minutes. Rooms and common facilities were clean at all times. The only downside are the rooms themselves, that are very small and quite basic. Other than that, great place, I would stay again !
