Great stay!
Had a great experience! The person in the bunk below me was snoring like crazy lol so I didn’t sleep well. Giving out earplugs, or having them available for free would be a great for the shared dorm rooms...I stayed at a spot in Europe that had a basket of them at check in and another that gave them out on pillows, which was a nice touch when you’re sharing a room. The bar staff and front desk staff was the BEST though!! Overall, perfect stay for a solo one night trip.

More Than I had Expected .
I had a wonderful eight nights at Freehand Chicago the check in was fast ,I had requested a high floor got to the room and a guest was in my bed ,so I noticed the Front desk and was moved to another even better room .The staff are all about servicing the guest just a great professional group of people thanks to James ,Janelle and all the others .The shared room is small but comfortable if you have the right room mates who are willing to keep the room clean .Housekeeping is interesting they clean but only change bed linen you check out ,or ask for new linens ,but fresh towels and keeping the general area clean is done daily.Thank you Jermika my House keeping lady .Breakfast is ok very basic .I liked that you could buy food from outside and store it in the refrigerator in the Kitchen .Freehand is a very busy place not for everyone ,its loud at night with music from the Bar but I enjoy the atmosphere .It's locate in the center of Downtown in walking distance to many eateries ,shopping ,and transportation 2 blocks from MichiganAve .By the way this was my first time staying at a Hostel Freehand is the way to go just an awesome place to enjoy Chicago.

everything was good. the service at the front desk and coffee shop was great. the service at the restaurant was terrible the waiters seem to be over it. one thing is that the bathroom inside the room had a terrible smell. at first, I thought it was the water but after flushing and letting the water run for a little bit the smell was still there.
