Perfect Budget Accommodation in chicago”

great price, friendly staff, great breakfast

We had standard twin bed room with shared bath. Room was clean, and bigger than we thought, with small closet and small working desk. Shared bathroom was a bit walk, but large and clean. Staff was very nice. Breakfast was pretty good for hostel. Toasts, bagels, fruits, cereals, oat meal. Location is great, in quiet area of Lincoln park. Walking distance to fullerton station, and bus stop is very close, only 5min walk. #22 and #36 bus are both very convenient. A lot of places to eat around too. For the price we paid, I think this was one of the best hostel experiences for us.

A convenient place to stay”

good view(Lincoln park), good restaurants and bars, good staffs

The location is very good, is very closed to Lincoln Park and it only takes 20-25 minutes to downtown (walk time included). The blue man group is very near,too. I can walk there and enjoy their great performance. People next to my room were noisy, but it's not a big problem.(I booked a private room) Many tickets are sold here, including CTA pass and some hot museums. It's really very convenient.

easy transportation, cheap price, and friendly environment

Like most hostel, the price is cheap with friendly environment. You can meet with many youths there. Ten minutes to Lincoln Park by walk. The breakfast is just so so. Someone talk on the street in front of the door of hostel. Make it a little bit noisy.

great hostel with great staff”

staff, location and ambience

I had low expectation as it was a hostel and i have never stayed one previously. But i was pleasantly surprised by the attentiveness of the staff and the level of professionalism mixed with a family-like ambiance was great. I had a full day of business meetings and it was nice to come back to the hostel rather than an empty hotel room. Even though i stayed in a private room, the common areas was big living room rather than just a lobby. and plus the fact that it has alot of restaurants and convenience centres nearby made my stay pleasurable.

Good Place. Rooms and Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner, however, for the price, I was willing to bear the little bit of mess. Good Culture over all. Staff is very helpful and you will meet a lot of people from different countries and culture here! CGH provides a basic breakfast which is included in the rent and also there are other amenities such as a paid pool table, common seating area, shared bathroom, dining hall, TV room and CGH also organises a few events to keep the guests entertained.

Ridiculous ”

We booked this place only because there were no room available during the Chicago marathon on Oct 9. The hostel ripped ridiculously at almost $200 per night for a room with bulk bed and shared bathroom. The normal price should be no more than $50 a night.

Good hostel but dorm rooms could be better.”

Great staff, location, patio/lounge

Good new hostel on the right track to being much better. Dorm room was clean and had good lighting and lockers. Better hostels have beds built into the wall with curtains, lights, charging outlets, and shelves at each bed. Right now beds are cheap, wobbly and awkward to get to the top bunk. This could be improved. Also, to get to the bathroom, you have to walk through the lobby/restaurant area and into another part of the hostel. Another bathroom in the dorm wing would make it much more comfortable. Good security, air conditioning, noise is low. Lots of good people stay here and all the staff (front desk to cleaners) are friendly and cool. Location is great! Beautiful streets and close to many restaurants, bars, and Fullerton Station.
