Good 7,8 From 543 reviews

Fair 4,0
Great idea, poor execution.
This is not a family friendly hotel. I booked a large room with bunk beds, one queen bed, and a separate pull out bed for our family of 5. All beds were basically futons. This was like an old college dorm was renovated into a hotel. I knew it wasn’t going to be a traditional hotel, but I was surprised at the quality. We didn’t even end up sleeping in that hotel.
Lindsey, us1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
Good to stay
Cost effective to stay, about 10 mins from CTA (SUBWAY), do not expect too much on breakfast, try bring personal small lock for locker or you still can buy one from receiption。 Usb plug provided for each bed。 Good to have lower bed instead of upper bed for elder/senior

It has what you need
I stayed for Riot Fest and had a blast. One thing I would mention is my food was taken from the community fridge.
