Everything was really clean. The bed was comfortable . You enter in the place and you feel in a good environment. Very much worth it for the price and quality

Always had good experience with Found Hotel. Front desk associates are friendly and check-in is always smooth. Rooms are very clean and bed is comfortable. They do not serve breakfast, but the hotel is worth the money you pay.

Hotel is nicely decorated and clean. Staff was courteous and attentive. Room was small but nice.

Description on website should specify its a hostel & youre booking a bed, not bedroom. I was expected to share a room with a man twice my age. I prefer to nap in my car a few hours than to risk my safety. Will not be staying here again.

Hotel is overall very good. The only thing disappointing was the last day there. I was checked out already and came back to pick up our bags in storage. I asked to use the restroom and the guy at the desk said he didn’t have the key and someone else had it and is currently down there. He said you can go down there and try to catch them. So I did, the other person let me in. But after I used the restroom, I was lock from the inside. Luckily I had my cell phone and had my brother get the key. Overall the guy at desk should have been more clear the door locks from both side and the persons that let me in should also of said something. If you ever use the restroom on the bottom floor make sure you have a key and cell phone. You can be stuck there.

Very cute hotel in an excellent location in River North! Short walk to the Loop and Magnificent Mile, and only a couple blocks from a subway station. The lobby is hip and well decorated, and the hotel staff was very friendly and personable and helpful. Loved that there is a coffee shop in the hotel lobby...just wish that there was a discount provided to hotel guests. The room was small (but not uncomfortably small) but very nice with a large bathroom. Only complaint with the room was that there is no closet and that the coat rack is directly above the table (not enough room to hang coats and shirts). Overall, I enjoyed my time and would stay here again!

Hotel was vey nice and clean and the front desk staff was very helpful

Comfortable bed, very quiet floor, excellent staff. Will definitely stay again!

Great place. Close to everything. Wonderful staff.

Staff and manager were incredibly helpful and cooperative when I had to rearrange plans last-minute. Room was much better than I expected for a hostel-type hotel, would definitely recommend!

Clean, good location, fast check in and check out. Good experience overall

Great location, great price, good parking price. The staff was helpful and friendly! My only complaints would be that the walls seem to be very thin, and the view out the window was other windows. But it worked well for us; exactly what we needed for a ladies day away trip!

Really nice place to stay & great location. Very clean & very comfortable. It was a weekend so the noise from the street made it a little difficult to sleep but I would definitely stay there again.

All staffs are super nice, room is spotless. They have a big kitchen and water filter, it’s so convenient if you want to cook some food or just have takeout and eat in the kitchen.

Room are very clean and bed are very comfy, people are super nice ( special thanks to Nick, Alex, and Cody)

Much beyond what I expected, very clean and room are bigger, people(Nick & Cody)are very nice and helpful! It’s wonderful place, highly recommend

Thank you for you feedback. Of the 60 rooms we have here on property, only 9 are shared. I apologize for any confusion during booking- we also offer private rooms as well, both with queen and double beds.
