Very Good 8.0
Comfortable, safe, and affordable!
Common spaces were SUPER GREAT. The rooms could have used a bit more cleaning before we checked in but sheets, blankets, towels etc. were all clean and comfortable. Overall great place to stay on a budget and nicer than expected. Also a great place to meet new people from around the country/world.

Lovely and very convenient
The neighborhood was perfect and location was conveniently located near various restaurants and markets. The bathrooms could have been cleaned a little more thoroughly but it was be no means dirty. We got the private room with its own bathroom, fridge, and mucrowave snd had a stellar time. I would book the place again in a heartbeat.

Denied stay.
Couldn't stay there. My stay was denied coz of 606 zip code. Bizarre rules but the guy was very kind to me.

Very minimalist, but great price for the location!
Stayed in the private Crash Pad. There is hardly any space at all, and no amenities, but again, for the price, to be staying on the North Side of Chicago, its actually not bad if you are trying to get a hotel for cheap and explore the city

Poor 2.0
Nope
I did not stay here even though I paid. I could not find a place to park, had questions go unanswered, and when I delved further I had a concierge threaten to call the police on me.
