A wonderful option!

I needed to sleep for a few hours before catching a 5am flight out of MDW, and this ended up being a perfect place to do that. I've always had great experiences with HI-Chicago, and this was no exception. The accommodations were wonderful, and I appreciated being in a bunk room with an en suite bathroom. And the woman at the registration desk was incredibly friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hostel!

Fabulous, affordable place to stay

Fabulous place to stay! The rooms are modern and clean. Plenty of bathrooms and showers. There are pool tables, ping pong tables, and free daily activities to sign up for. The location is excellent, close to Lake Michigan and an L station. Very friendly staff!
