Impressed
You got to keep in mind that it's a hostel, therefore, the place is not the most luxurious. However, it's completely worth its price, as it's affordable. Definitely it's not the same atmosphere like in a hotel. Every evening people do not sit in their rooms, all of them are in the guest room playing pool, guitar and talking to each other. If you are a sociable person, that place is perfect for you. The location is super convenient. Everything is close : Downtown, Lincoln park, subway etc.

Nice stay
This was my first visit to a hostel The hostel staff were efficient and friendly. Our room was clean and the air worked well, great b/c it was 101 and humid! It is a perfect option if you are not looking for the bells and whistles (and prices) of a "hotel" I was disappointed there was no parking, it was one of the key reasons I chose this specific place. I arrived before check in time and all the parking was "sold out" There was no option for me to pay when I reserved. Other then that it was a good experience.

The place is clean, and it was sufficient for our needs, but the price seemed a little steep for a shared bathroom, questionable refrigerators (one was definitely not cold enough; another had the door left open when I went to get my food), and cereal for breakfast.
