    Hello! The hostel has 10-bed, 8-bed and 4-bed dorms available. The 10-bed dorms use a shared hall bathroom, while the 8-bed dorms and 4-bed dorms have a bath within the room. I hope that helps! HI Chicago Management Team.

    Is there a limit on the number of nights one may stay? If it's possible to stay a month, would there be a special rate?
