    I liked a lot to stay in HI Hostel Chicago. We've arrived early in the morning and we were permitted to enter our room. Coomfortable bed, warm blanket. Clean place. Beautiful common area and good choice for breakfast

    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).
