Location, staff and facilities
The environment of the hostel is wonderful. It is at a very lovely street, full of old houses and huge trees. Bus stop and subway are very close to the hostel. There are plenty of restaurants and bars around. If I go to Chicago I will definetly stay at the Arlington House. The room I had booked had a private bathroom but when we arrived at there they gave us a room with toilet and labotory, no shower. On the other hand the comman showers are really clean..
This is the best hostel I have stayed in the staff are excellent the rooms are a bit Spartan but clean and well maintained, they organize a trip to a blues club once a week,and have a communal meal on one night of the week plus the continental breakfast is more than ample, it is also in a brilliant location right in the heart of Lincoln park. Would have liked some sort of cupboard in the room not just a wardrobe, but I managed okay without so no problem.
Basic, but very nice breakfast. I especially liked to see 3 kinds of fruit most days. Nice outside space. Was very good to have free wifi in the room. My husband and I stayed in a private room with bathroom for a week, and the room wasn't cleaned once. Now that's not a huge problem, but we had to use the same towels for a week as well. Another small problem was that people were sitting outside on the patio and talking at 3 am. Fortuntaly, they weren't too loud.
The chicago getaway hostel was a fun, hip place to stay in the heart of the city. Really close to everything and friendly people and staff. I would definetly stay again. Nothing really. Once you realize you are paying for a hostel, and not a hotel, everything is great.
Great stay, excellent staff, good things to do, and all in an lovely neighborhood just a bus ride from the loop. No problems to hear if the neighbour got lucky...A bit to easy as a fact, sond pass good througg those doors.
This hostel was one of the nicest I've visited. The mattress was great, the staff was great, the price was reasonable, the location was central, and the facility was large, well-maintained and comfortable. I would stay there again! Great spot.
Location, close to Lincoln Park and easy access into the city. Some staff were really friendly, others were abrupt.. and the rooms were really hot in summer.
The price is great! Can walk to the Fullerton Red Line station. Wireless internet worked well in the lobby areas. Community washroom not pristine after a night of use.
I stayed in a private room, it was ok for the price. basic but ok breakfast, excellent staff, very helpful, free internet. the private rooms should at least have washbasin and mirror. in every corridor, there should be a shower/toilet (man/woman). 15-20 min away from the city center by train + 10 min walking distance to the train .
