    This hostel is big on creating community. There are a ton of communal areas: kitchen, TV room, back patio, pool table, meeting room, plus bulletin boards full of info about what to do and where to go for a good time in the neighborhood. They also have bikes, guitars, and computers for guests to use or rent. The staff is friendly and informative. Everything was clean and seemed quite safe. The rooms are sparse, as I'm sure is normal for hostels. I didn't see any other women while I was there, though, and the guy at the desk confirmed that they don't see many. That would be my only hesitation if I was traveling alone.

    The best place to discover Chicago. A bit far from the loop but really near from transportation.
    Nice athmosphere. Very clean and nice kitchen.

    Really Clean! Located in Lincoln Park in a really nice/safe area. Not to far from DePaul so a lot of college kids and bars near by. I would recommend if your'e on a budget and looking for a nice place to stay. About a 15 minute bus or train ride from Downtown.

    Excellent service. Rooms were astonishingly good for a hostel. Fun people and environment. A little pricier than other hostels but you get what you pay for! Bathrooms are only on certain floors though, the only downside
