It fit my needs; a low cost in a high cost environment. Felt safe and secure. No concerns

Fair2.0 / 5
Ok, convenient and fine for the money
We had a private room with a shared bath, which was comfortable enough. However, the one shower and one toilet per gender were shared with 6 or so rooms. We never had a wait but we were also there on a Wednesday night and I could see weekends being hectic. The breakfast in the morning was a mess. Disgusting and unkempt, which is partly the guests being rude and messy. However, the water was never refilled which was frustrating because the water fountain out in the lounge also did not work. This was my second stay, and I'll likely be back, but please please please clean up the breakfast area more regularly.

Awesome experience! Highly recommend!
Great area right in downtown Chicago. Close to the train and subway. Comfortable room, well as comfortable as it can get for a hostel. Great chill out room on the 2nd floor. Has storage lockers if you need a place before you check in or after you check out. Would definitely stay here again.

Good3.0 / 5
it is a nice hotel but not a comfortable one.
The breakfast is so basic, only carbs and boiled eggs. not worth the price paid for the stay. one hotel suite has several bed rooms, each bed room is for each guest. The bed room has no bathroom, and you have to share with other guests. The bath room was not cleaned for at least 2 days. The whole hotel however is clean. The bed room is tiny.
