Functional; nice vibe; close to CTA
Hostel, i.e., many rooms are bunk beds and bathrooms are shared. Single-bed rooms are spartan, but functional - even include an iron! AC works fine in the summer. Breakfast is basic starches such as plain bagels, cereal and bread, with some daily variety (hard-boiled eggs, hot oatmeal, apples). Lots of youth groups, but the main night noise is the L train around the corner. CTA Red Line is just three minutes walk. Wi-Fi works well.

Good Stay at Hi Chicago
Overall, my stay at Hi Chicago was good. It would have been great if three things didn't occur. Had to wait a long time in line to receive service, having issues with getting in my room because of the card, and not so great customer service. The customer service issue was once so I let it go. I see myself returning back.
