That was my third stay in the hostel and I would definitely book it again. It's clean and nice and everybody is helpful and friendly. The location of the hostel is perfect, it's easy to get there from the airport and not to far from the Loop.

I reserved a private room, which was small but clean, for only $30 + taxes/night. Bathroom were big and clean. Staff was very friendly. This hostel is in a residential neighborhood and there are plenty of places to park close to the hostel. Hostel is just two blocks from the 3 blue subway. This was the best hostel I have stayed in.

Hotel had a cool interior, rooms were clean, and the cafe below was perfect for late snacks. Employees were very helpful and offered accommodations when we needed more blankets or just wanted to know what delivered nearby.

Hostels always have some downfalls, such as shared bathrooms. But people are usually quick with using it. The premises is close to public transport. The staff is friendly. And the beds are comfy. You cant beat it for the price!

Holiday Jones is really nice place located in Division Station. There are CVS Pharmacy and restaurants near Holiday Jones. The price is also good and I especially like Common Area that I can work everytime You can enjoy your stay.

Staff always very helpful and friendly. HJ easy to access wither by car or if flying in by train from the airports. Two blocks from Blue Line. I have always been able to get a parking space which keeps me from having to park at the airport. I come in a day early and stay then take the train to the airport. There are several bars/food in the block and a Starbucks across the street. Also a Target across the street. Comfortable beds. I left a ring behind and they promptly contacted me to let me know they found it. Great place and highly recommend!

I loved the environment here. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, everything was clean and well maintained. Overall great experience. Perfect location, near a lot of really great things to do, as well as easily accessible public transportation.

I stayed in a private room for 3 nights recently and although I was mostly drawn to HJP on price grounds, I thought the location and hosts were both excellent. Nestled very close to the Blue Line (ideal for trips to and from the airport), I would stay again. Only drawback was the private rooms don't have en suite bathrooms. PS. Very thankful for the support we had whilst my friends both had food poisoning!

I loved the Holiday Jones, just perfect for what I needed for a few days in Chicago. Wonder price fantastic locationright in the blue line. You can be anywhere in the city center within minutes thanks to Chicago’s CTA.. It was extreme enjoyable, comfortable for a hostel the cafe’s empanadas are certainly worth a bite!

Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Clean, modern, great staff. Location is superb - close to restaurants and bar, felt totally safe and it's also a 5 mins walk to the blue line which is a great train line. Also attached to a lovely coffee shop with great empanadas!! Can't rate this place high enough!!
