Really everything about the hostel was just fine. I especially appreciated the effort of a gentleman that worked in the evening who helped me find the correct elevated train that took me nearest to Union Station.
A 30 ish woman who was working at the desk about 10 at night when I checked in could have been a lot more friendly.
Commom areas were good.
It needs some mayor upkeeing and renovation, and a thorough cleaning, specially the shared bathrooms
Breakfast was good, plenty of choices. Location was great, many restaurants and bars nearby. 7 min walk from the red line Fullerton station. Nice quiet place. Reception staffs were good, locks can be bought for $5 in case you don't have one.
No shower gel like we find in China. The upper bed was shaking too much, felt like an earthquake (don't know whether it was only about my bed)! Whenever I had to get down I had to be very careful, otherwise I could have been fallen down, also it woke the person up on the lower bed.
The place always clean!
The breakfast could be better
Really nice to have breakfast included. Appropriate for the price paid, Fruit, cereal, porridge and toast, coffee. They also put breakfast on early for those doing the Chicago Marathon which was really helpful
The women's toilets and showers next to the bunk room I stayed the first 2 nights had awful water supply. The showers dribbled out water and 2 out of the 3 sinks had no running water. However my second 2 nights here were booked into a private room on another floor and the shared bathroom on that floor was excellent
