"Fantastic Experience in Chicago at Hostelling International"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I would like to highly recommend this hostel. It is super clean, super nice and located in a fantastic place if you want to be in the heart of Chicago. The staff was great and all the people at the hostel I came into contact with were super friendly and great people. Kitchens were clean and ready to be used. The hostel had an employee dedicated to helping people plan their stay in Chicago and answered all kinds of questions. I would highly recommend this venue to all travelers, families, students, singles, couples, business people and anyone who wants to save a buck and have a great stat in the heart of the city. Thumbs up to Hostelling International in Chicago.
