Pros: -relatively cheap -clean -free breakfast -close to the metro and has a great location in an authentic Chicago neighbourhood -wifi Cons: -It lacks a personality big time, it has nothing to remember it by - at the times of numerous...

Stayed here for 2 nights, and I've had a great experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful, room 8 (8 bed female dorm) was big enough and clean, common room has a pool table, bar area and a big couch with tv. Breakfast was nothing special: coffee, tea, pancakes, waffles, fruit etc., I didn't expect more for the price...

I was lucky enough to be here over the weekend of the Ireland v NZ rugby and the Cubs World series win!! A wonderful time to be in Chicago anyway, but I really enjoyed my time here at the Wrigley Hostel. It's a 2 minute walk from Addison station on the redline and surrounded by bars and places to eat....

Let me start by saying that this hostel will best suit broke college kids who are just traveling to party and aren't concerned about accommodations as much as they are the experience. I have been staying in hostels for 10 years now for solo travel, family vacations, and traveling with friends and boyfriends (I would say at least 50 hostels...

I've stayed in most of the hostels in Chicago and I can say that Wrigley is the best. Wrigley is steps away from Wrigley Field (hence the name). A stay includes two great common areas (basement entertainment room and outside deck), breakfast, and loads of suggestions on things to do. The cleaning lady is constantly cleaning and the property is...

Nice location, 2 mins walk from red line which has direct connectivity to downtown. Rooms are small but good for short stay of 1-2 days especially if you are looking for something at reasonable price.

Cancelled my stay and they still charged me. Not only they charged me but they charged me 60$ for the first night (in a dorm) which was not the indicated price. Couldnt believe it. Please do not go there you wont pay the amount you expected and certainly will have a bad surprise when paying the bill. Prices on website...

I stayed here for two nights, and I was glad to leave afterward. Good things first: the hostel is located close to a public transit stop and it takes about 15 minutes to get to downtown. Breakfast is okay, there are even pancakes. Now the not good things: I got a room in the basement, which meant, absolutely no natural...

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighbourhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
