|Chicago Getaway Hostel|
Great location and friendly staff.
Room was tiny and cold; the blankets were very thin and the bunk-beds were uncomfortable and did not feel safe. Also the closet had an unpleasant odor.Not worth the money; spend a little more and stay at a real hotel.
The staff was wonderful
Although they provided towels they did not provide washclothsI can't brag enough about the staff. They were exceptionally nice. I would go back there for sure.
This hostel has a beautiful atmosphere, where art fills entire rooms- not just in public spaces. Many fun events were planned; unfortunately I cannot rate any as I had a short trip.
The only complaint would be that the shared showers are not so great (only some rooms have full bath). But that's to be expected with a hostel.If you're okay settling for the atmosphere of a hostel versus a hotel (may include shared showers and self-serve cafeteria) then this is a great place! They really go to an effort to both make this a beautiful social place and show you Chicago.
Good location, ease of cooking your own food and not spending eating out, good staff.
The toilets are kinda dirty.If you are a student visiting Chicago and want to be able to visit uptown, downtown and most of the happening places then Gateway is for you. Everything is close by and you can use the Lite Rail to almost everywhere. Safe location, cool people and good places to eat and club. Just make sure to ask Priceline to clear with Gateway how many people will be residing in the room. The one we booked (my 2 friends and I), it seemed to fit 3 people(which it did, if you share the bigger bed) said that the occupancy is for 2 people. We called the hostel and they said it shouldn't be a problem and they wouldn't charge us extra. But when we got there, they told us that Priceline hadn't informed them of the situation so we ended up paying $20 extra per night.
The staff was nice and helpfull
I feel the hotel was no where near what the description was. I did not expect there to not be a shower and rstroom in the hotel room.The oval trip in general was fun. I enjoyed the convenient location and accessability to the surrounding areas. Unfortunately the hotel did not smell to good in the room, it somewhat seemed like sauna.i did not realize the betters deal I could have gotten at a better hotel until after I payed the full bill. There was no problem with the staff at all, very nice people that had an answer for every question. The breakfast was also good for being on the house.
For the price, I don't think you can get a better deal in Chicago unless you're couch-surfing at a friend's place. Great room, fantastic location, excellent security / friendly neighborhood, comfortable beds, fairly good breakfast, and overall a very good
Some people in the adjoining room were a bit loud till 1 AM. Not rowdy or drunk, just loud. The walls seem kind of thin, but meh. The wi-fi internet is pretty good in the lobby area but very crappy in the actual rooms. But there is plenty of room to sit iOne word review: Awesome. Pros: Safe and friendly neighborhood; lots of security features; pretty good breakfast; nice, trendy, modern feel to the lobby. Excellent deal, considering it's Chicago. In the famous Lincoln Park neighborhood. A 5-minute walk from the Lincoln Park Zoo (Free), Conservatory (Free), and Nature Museum (cheap). Great restaurants nearby. CVS pharmacy within a few blocks, as well as a grocery store. We did all the free stuff i...
