    Its likely the cleanest Hostel one will ever encounter. It's location is Prime, some people would say unbelievable - convenient to Michigan Ave., the subway, Commuter lines, Union Station, The Art Institute, Symphony Hall, etc., etc. It's also well laid out & managed.

    There are private rooms, but I didn't stay in one, so I'm not sure if it is still a shared bathroom. There are shared bathrooms for each area of suites, so it is just across the hall and not a lot of people using each one.

    It's easy using the train. Just get on the blue line and get off at Jackson station. It's only a 5 minute walk from there. (Google Maps will help you plan it).
