Picture it. May 2014. Two strapping, young Canadians on a Pan-American road trip fly into the "windy city" with nothing but a Grand Caravan and two hearts full of dreams. We made our way to this hostel in a beautiful area of Chicago with abundant nightlife and sightseeing to be had within walking distance. When booking this hostel, we were promised pizza and parking. Imagine our dismay when we found NEITHER. We ended up having to park our van in a parking garage 20 blocks away only to find it two days later in an impound (...that might have been our bad). The hostel seems like it was sort of just thrown together and the breakfast was fairly lean (not to mention carb heavy). Someone poured honey on our room mates pillow and he proceded to accuse and threaten to beat us for having done it. Clearly we hadn't because as Canadians, naturally we would have used maple syrup!
This place has a lot of potential and the staff were friendly. The area of the city is second to none. We fell in love with the city... just maybe not this particular hostel. LOL
