I need to book accomodation for Chicago but am not sure where. Someone told me that this was the closest decent hostel to downtown...anyone else know if this is true?

There are also two other hostels located within Chicago. Chicago Internation is not the closest to the Loop or Michigan Ave areas, though it is close to Loyola University and Lake Michigan. Public transportation or a taxi can get you to all of the museums and other attractions.

The other two are:

HI Chicago
24 East Congress Parkway

Arlington House Hostel
616 Arlington Place

HI Chicago is within walking distance of downtown, the Natural History Museum, Millenium Park, Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planatarium. A taxi ride can get you to The Museum of Science & Industry

Arlington House is within walking distance of Lincoln Park Zoo. Public transportation or short cab ride will get you down to the Loop area and places mentioned above.

Good luck! ;)

My neighbor stayed at the hostel in Chicago, if you email me off-line,I'm sure I can give you his email and I'm sure he would be happy to share his experience with you.

I live in Chicago and can tell you it's a very easy place to manuver around in due to public transportation. Most of the places, I'm sure will be very nice/decent to stay in.
