I stayed at this hostel for 6 nights in June. I was visiting Chicago with my parents and so we had a private room for three. Towels are provides for free. Breakfast (milk, tea/coffee, cereals, oatmeal, bagels) included in the price - but it's only from 8am to 10am. There's a washing machine, a dryer and several fridges. Possibility to rent bikes. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean. The staff is nice and helpful. The crowd staying at this hostel is different from what I've seen at other places. During my stay I saw families with young kids and seniors. The atmosphere was really peaceful and quiet.
The location is perfect. It's very close to the Blue Line which goes to the airport and works 24/7. The neighborhood - Wicker Park and Bucktown - is really interesting and full of restaurants, bars and vintage/second-hand stores.More
