  • Good hostel - cannot take alcohol in though because they have a bar downstairs! Also heard a baby crying in the night - weird thing for a hostel! Fine just for a bed for the night though!

  • Both the TV room and hallways smell horrible! All the furniture in the common area should be renewed since they all stink! The bathroom doors should have an auto-closing system so that hallways will not smell like toilets! The breakfast is horrible and needs to be improved. The breakfast "police" guy (the older guy with glasses) needs to learn how to be polite to guests and stop bothering them during the breakfast!! The wifi needs to be fixed since there are constant disconnections!

  • The full kitchen is not in the building, if you're planning on cooking, its a far cry from ideal. Great folks though.

  • Very easy to get to from Ohare. Take the blue line to your stop. The common area has kitchen with microwave and frig. Lounge area is small but adequate. People are friendly beds clean and comfortable. I obversed a variety of travelers. Young older and families small kids. Would stay there again when visiting from Orlando.
