Can you believe that?
(1)Someone stole my PIZZA!!! I followed the instruction of the hotel which is writing the name on food. But, still, someone disrespected this rule and truly hurt my experience in Chicago!!! (2)There is no hair dryer in this hotel, if you concern. (3)No elevator for travelers, you better watch out if you got heavy baggage. (4) And in the room I slept, the van will make a noisy sound.

Had what we expected in hotel. Didn’t have any other services such as providing shampoo, etc. Staff was helpful and polite.

A good, solidly well-maintained hostel
It's a hostel, so there's a limit to how comfortable it can be, with four bunk beds to a bedroom. But the bathrooms were clean, and the common room was terrific. The free breakfast was also only-okay, but perfectly appropriate considering the cost. The location in Greektown was even more convenient than I expected. I would happily return to spend a night or two there.
