Chicago Hotels: 474 reviews and 533 photos

I stayed in two hostels in Chicago
The YHA in Chicago is to give a miss, they ahve a midnite cerfew, they are closed between 10 and 4 in the afternoon, so you have to be outside ( I was lucky it was sunny always).
The other one is teh Arlington house, which is the better one, the bulding is old, but it ain't too expensive and it is very close to clubs and bars

Unique Qualities: It is close to a few famous blues bars in chicago, Like B.L.U.E.S and The Kingston mines.

Address: it is on 616 west arlington place
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Theme: Hostel

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
