What Other Travelers are Saying
”The hostel is very clean and has a nice atmosphere. It is very secure, as well. Area is nice, surrounded by many restaurants, grocery stores and a subway station near by. It's literally two blocks from Grant Park so location is unbeatable for this price. Staff was always very friendly. I slept like a baby all nights, bed was super comfy and room was bigger than expected. Bathroom was cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis. I'd definitely stay here again without any doubt.”
