If I compare it to the HI Hostel in Boston this one is less modern and a little noisy by night due to the L-train passing by. Had no problems sleeping with ear plugs in which are a must in almost every hostel. Great breakfast however, good location. Nice service.

Amazing hostel; other guests were respectable folks, not sketchy at all. Very pleasant and professional staff. Clean rooms. Excellent recreation and breakfast area, as well as any services you may need. I will be staying here for all my Chicago travel!

i have stayed at hostels across the world. This hostel is in my top five favorites list. It is run professionally like a hotel, but with the warmth and friendliness of a family run place. Plus they have free outings almost every day of the week, for people to socialize and tour the city. If you are coming to Chicago this is THE hostel to choose!!!
