Location is excellent. Close to a beautiful church and tons of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. Price is super. Can’t beat $14/night.
Excellent location. Amazing staff. Incredible value for the money.
Amazing friendly staff. Excellent location. Great value for your dollar.
The whole place looks and feels dated. Can use a good thorough cleaning.
Need to improve on breakfast quality
That the hostel was close to boystown for pride weekend
The cleanliness of the whole hostel feels very run down and the bathrooms had spiders all over the place including tape all over some of the bathrooms. The breakfast was very poor only offering fruit and wheat bread. The air conditioning was also working sometimes but then didn’t work some other times. Worst hostel stay I’ve had so far traveling the country.
Great staff, clean public bathrooms, useful half bathroom in the dorm room.
Beds are a bit uncomfortable and very squeaky
Worth the money
Nice staff, really helpful Close to public transportation
Clean and close to where my daughter lives. Lots of shopping and restaurants close by and an easy walk to Lake Michigan.
It was noisy on Friday night but better on Saturday night. The people were quieter. I only was able to get lukewarm water for a shower. Take your own bar of soap and a washcloth. There are none there.
Good Place for A Reasonable Price
Location is good near to public transportation Cleanliness is acceptable compared to the price Breakfast provided
Communication between the online booking and the actual staff was not clear. Sounds go through the walls
Great laid back place in a more than perfect location, bad breakfast!!
Love the place and location. This is a very laid back kind of place where you have access to a full kitchen if you want to cook for yourself but is also a block away from an extensive array of restaurants, coffee places and night life. They had Sunday comedy night wich we loved.
They offer breakfast which is part of the reason I decided to come back a second time but they have down graded the breakfast to bad coffee and waffles which is disappointing.
Awesome staff, very clean, great value for the money and wonderful location.
